While speaking during a television programme, "Clear View," on African Independent Television (AIT) on Wednesday, former Abia State governor, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, said the time is ripe for President Muhammadu Buhari to compensate those who campaigned aggressively for him during the 2015 presidential elections.

According to the influential South East chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), only those who worked for Buhari, to realise his presidential ambition deserve a place in his cabinet.

He said; “I will encourage the president to play this game as a politician because, if you have appointed people, let them do the job. Also, appoint those people who followed you during campaigns so that they can have the benefit of where you want to be.

“You cannot just win an election and import people to come and run the same government you want; it is not possible, it is not going to work.

“So, politicians are supposed to run with the mandate they ran around with to win the election. If you go around, you will hear people saying, ‘we won election and the president doesn’t want to bring everybody on board.’ So, the president should, as much as possible, bring people who worked with him on board.

“In fact, if I were in the president’s shoes, all the people who ran the presidential election with me and those who did not run and some leaders deserve to be told, you have one minister, go and appoint him and bring for me.

"The minister is Buhari’s minister; he is not Orji Kalu’s minister. But, you help to appoint him because you worked for the party. That is the essence of constitutional/business democracy,” the former governor said.
