The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said President Muhammadu Buhari is working hard to assemble the best hands as ministers in the next few weeks.

He stated this in Abuja on Wednesday, August 12, when he received members of the Association of Northern Students at APC national secretariat.

The students were at the party's in Abuja to felicitate with the chairman on his 76th birthday and one year in office.

Odigie-Oyegun said that for any government to have legitimacy, its key emphasis and justification for existence must be the welfare of the people who entrusted the political party or leader with the governance of their common affairs.

He lamented the state of rot the party inherited and urged the nation to be patient.

According to him, the APC has a blueprint for everybody's welfare.

''So, we have a major reconstruction effort ahead of us. One can only at this time plead through you to Nigerians to be patient with us because things are much worse than we expected.

''Let anybody make no mistake about it, President Buhari is committed; in fact, that is the core of his life and he has spent the last two months understanding the situation that he has taken over without interference and distractions.

''He has been able to hear, sit and interact with the core operators without third party or intermediaries.

''In the next few weeks, he will now assemble the team, which he can now confidently give direct instructions as to what he expects to be done.

''This means that he is in a better position to measure whether anybody entrusted with any function is performing or not performing, meeting target or not,'' the chairman said.

He assured that Buhari has a new approach to governance, which was emphasising target and deliverables in the lives of the people that he had been entrusted to govern.

Earlier, the Chairman of the students group, Mike Omoba, said they came from different campuses in the country to celebrate Odigie-Oyegun on his birthday ‘’and because of his landmark achievements over the years''.
