APC national spokesperson, Lai Mohammed this morning on Channels TV said President Buhari never promised to do anything within his 1st 100 days in office.

"Buhari never promised to do anything in 100 days, that's the honest truth. You see, when you are running a campaign, all kinds of literature will emerge from all sorts of groups but I came here and I said there are only just two documents that you can judge a party with. that is the constitution of the party and the manifesto of the party. Those are the only two documents that are registered with INEC you can go to court on or hold a party accountable for" he said.

His statement comes a few days after presidential spokesperson, Shehu Garba released a statement distancing President Buhari from two documents tagged "One Hundred Things Buhari Will Do in 100 Days" . The documents had a list of promises President Buhari and APC during their campaign, vowed to fulfill within his 1st 100 days in office if elected.

The statement in part reads "

"Both pamphlets bore the authorized party logo but as the Director of Media and Communications in that campaign, I did not fund or authorize any of those. I can equally bet my last Kobo that Candidate Buhari did not see or authorize those publications.

 As a consequence of these publications, expectations have been raised unreasonably, that as President, Muhammadu Buhari will wave his hand and all the problems that the country faces- insecurity, corruption, unemployment, poor infrastructure would go away. But that notwithstanding, President Buhari has given the job his best shot and the whole country is saying that we never had it so good.

He has re-instituted the values of hard work and administrative efficiency. The President says times without number that this country needs to fix governance and that he won't tolerate laziness".

He debunked reports that some members of the APC have expressed disappointments over the appointments made by the President, insisting that the party is happy about the appointment.

“ I also read online that some APC leaders who chose to remain anonymous, expressed dissatisfaction.

But I can tell u that all the APC members are behind the President on the issue of this appointment”, he stressed.

He, however, disagreed what is being said about the National Chairman of the party, John Oyegun, that APC will be more involved in other appointments of the President.

“ I read the full statement of the National Chairman of my party, and what he said was that, these are personal staff . It’s too early to make a judgment, you do not take part to be the whole.

Future appointments will be different but these are personal staff”, he said.

Talking about personal staff, Mr Mohammed said that “ I have been a Chief of Staff, and as the Chief of Staff, I was the first person the Governor saw in the morning and the last he saw at night almost on a daily basis.

“ As the Chief of Staff, I was the link between the Governor’s personal and public life .

“You can’t choose anybody from any party for that kind of job. There must be a relationship between you and your principal which must be personal”, he maintained.

The National Secretary of the APC opined that the calculation and permutation by Nigerians on who the President will appoint is wrong.

“There should be no fixation on any particular office, going to any particular part of the country.

The fact that it went to a particular part of the country in the previous administration, does not mean it will go there in this present administration”.

He stressed that “what we should focus on is the assurance from the government that in the fullness of time, no part of this country will feel marginalised by the kind of appointments that would be made”.
