Timi Frank, the acting national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has to comments by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari.

Mrs Buhari had expressed frustrations about her husband's government, claiming it has been hijacked.

The APC spokesman on Friday, October 14, 2016, noted that was not meant to discredit the present administration but to sound a note of caution for the betterment of Nigerians and the country at large.

"What Mrs Buhari has said is not different from what some of us have been saying that it is high time the President shake-up his cabinet and bring in people who understand the manifestoes of the party and could help the party deliver on its change mantra, especially, the economy of the country needs an urgent attention.

"Some of our leaders like the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki have made this same observation in the past and I think they meant well for the administration and the country. I will also join them in appealing to the president to do the needful."

"Nigerian women in politics and other wives of the president in the world have a lot to learn from what Mrs Buhari has done. We should not forget in a hurry that this is what the former first lady Mrs Patience Jonathan failed to do to her husband when few people hijacked his government and brought the government down," he added.

Frank called on President Buhari to act fast and correct some of the abnormalities currently threatening the existence of the APC.
