Exclusion of Faleke and Lalong from Presidential Appointments Committee Sparks Concern in APC Circles
A group within the All Progressives Congress (APC), known as APC Renewed Hope Ambassadors, has raised concerns over the exclusion of Hon James Faleke and Barr. Simon Lalong from the presidential appointments committee. The group argues that their exclusion contradicts the principles of inclusivity and representation championed by the ruling party during its campaigns. They have issued a one-week deadline for the federal government to reconsider the situation, emphasizing the importance of justice and equity in the governing process.

FCT, Abuja - A group in the All Progressives Congress (APC) known as APC Renewed Hope Ambassadors have expressed deep concern over the exclusion of Hon James Faleke and Barr. Simon Lalong from the presidential appointments committee.

The committee is co-chaired by a former governor of Kebbi state, Atiku Bagudu, and a former governor of Jigawa state, Abubakar Badaru.

The APC group said the decision to sideline Faleke, a member of the House of Representatives, and Lalong, the immediate past governor of Plateau state, from the committee calls for concern.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Saturday, August 13, Comrade Friday Maduka, leader of the group, said:

"Rt Hon James Faleke and Barr. Simon Lalong was the engine room and driving force behind the formidable presidential campaign machine that led President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima to victory.

Their dedication extended beyond the campaign's core objectives, as they tirelessly worked to incorporate a diverse range of voices into the narrative.

They ensured representation from Community Development Associations, Town Hall Meetings, Ethnic Nationality Groups, and grassroots organizations."

The group argued that their exclusion contradicts the principles of inclusivity and representation the ruling party championed during its campaigns.

While acknowledging the complexities of political appointments, the group stressed that no excuse is tenable for the committee's omission of Faleke and Lalong.

They issued a one-week deadline for the federal government to reconsider the situation, adding that they would initiate a strategic campaign towards their demands if their concerns were not addressed within the given timeframe.

The group, however, reiterated its commitment to peaceful advocacy, emphasizing the importance of justice and equity.

"The outcome of this situation will likely impact the perceptions of fairness and equity within the governing process," Comrade Maduka noted.

In response to the concerns raised by the APC Renewed Hope Ambassadors, the federal government should take into account the valid concerns brought forth regarding the exclusion of Hon James Faleke and Barr. Simon Lalong from the presidential appointments committee.

Justice and equity must remain at the forefront of the governing process to ensure the principles of inclusivity and representation are upheld, as promised during the APC's campaigns.

It is essential for the ruling party to address these concerns promptly and fairly to prevent any perceived biases or imbalances in the distribution of power.

The exclusion of Faleke and Lalong from the committee underscores the importance of transparency and accountability within the political landscape.

The APC must demonstrate its commitment to a diverse range of voices and inclusivity by ensuring the representation of individuals who have played pivotal roles in the party's success.

Furthermore, the federal government's response to these concerns will set the tone for the effectiveness of its governing process.

Ultimately, the goal should be to inspire confidence and trust among party members and the wider population by prioritizing justice, equity, and representation.
