The National Auditor of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief George Moghalu, has disassociated himself from groups engaging in media campaigns for him to be appointed a minister into the yet to be constituted President Muhammadu Buhari’s led federal executive council.
In a statement issued in Abuja, the APC National Auditor said appointments into the Executive arm of the Federal Government are the sole prerogative of the President and will nominate for appointment qualified individuals to execute the duties of the office they are assigned.
He said he had not engaged the services of any persons or groups to lobby on his behalf either covertly or overtly for him to be appointed.
“It has been brought to my notice that certain groups have embarked on a media campaign to lobby for my appointment into the Federal Executive.
Let it be on the record that these persons are acting of their own accord. I have not, and I do not intend to engage the services of any persons or groups to lobby on my behalf either covertly or overtly.
I believe that my antecedents over many years in politics are sufficient to speak for me if ever the need arose,” he said.
