CUPP And APP Asks Court To Sack All President Buhari's Aides Yet To Be Re-Appointed.

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) and the Action Peoples Party (APP) have approached an Abuja Federal High Court, to order the vacation from office political appointees of President Muhammadu Buhari, who are yet to be re-appointed.

Among presidential aides the coalition is seeking their sack include: Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha; Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity and Special Adviser, Femi Adesina, amongst others.

The plaintiff stated that it is an aberration, for the presidential aides whose tenure ended with the expiration of the president’s first term, to continue in office without being re-appointed.

Those sued as defendants in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/762/2019, include; President Buhari, Abba Kyari, Boss Mustapha, Garba Shehu and Femi Adesina, as 1st to 5th defendants.

The plaintiffs want an order of the court to restrain Kyari, Mustapha, Shehu, Adesina (2nd to 5th defendants) and any other personal staff of the president, from parading themselves as the Chief of Staff, SGF and media aides to the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, until official reappointment is made.

They also prayed the court to order the defendants and other aide or personal staff of the president appointed prior to May 29, 2019 and still acting in that capacity without reappointment, to return and pay into federation account, all their emoluments, salaries and allowances received from May 29, 2019 till the day they vacate office.

CUPP added in a statement that the “Former SGF, Boss Mustapha is still in that office, Sen. Ita Enang is still parading as special adviser to the president on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Abba Kyari as Chief of Staff, Adesina is still appearing in TV programs as Special Adviser to the President on Media, likewise Garba Shehu parading as the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

“These among other officials of the presidency are still illegally occupying their former offices without any lawful authority as the president has not made any announcement to the nation that he has appointed or reappointment officers onto thee positions,” it said.

According to CUPP, “President Buhari’s inability to appoint personal/presidential aides or indeed any other appointments over one month after taking oath of office is a sign that the president is still not yet ready to govern and lacks understanding of the urgency needed to fix Nigeria.”

  1. Even though the coalition are right in their demand, but is that the problems facing Nigeria? Those they mentioned are they the people terrorizing Nigerians?
