The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, has dismissed speculations that he was among those being considered to be the next Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Oyegun said he never solicited for the SGF or any other position other than National Chairman which he presently occupies.
Speaking in an interview with journalists in his office on Monday, he said there was presently no dispute between the party and President Muhammadu Buhari over the appointment of ministers, adding that it had been agreed that only those who can deliver and who subscribe passionately to the agenda of the president should make the list.
On the issue of SGF, Odigie-Oyegun said he had not solicited for the post nor has anyone approached him to be nominated.
“I have not in anyway, in capital letters and underlined, solicited for any position other than the national chairmanship of APC. I think I am clear enough, isn’t it? And nobody has approached me on that he is considering me either on that position or another.”
