The former Interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, has congratulated former Presidential Liaison Officer, Alhaji Kashim Ibrahim-Imam over his appointment as Chairman, Board of Trustees of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND).
Akande also described Ibrahim-Imam the party's cornerstone hitherto overlooked in appointments.
He said Ibrahim-Imam played a crucial role in the merger of legacy parties culminating in the birth of APC.
Akande also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for doing what he called the right thing in a statement he personally signed on Saturday.
"When Buhari's government, perhaps inadvertently, gave Ibrahim-Imam no position, Tinubu requested me to talk to Buhari on Ibrahim-Imam's behalf. I refused because I presumed that there must have been a dangerous disconnect between the APC and it's government.
"Now that the President has approved a position for Ibrahim-Imam in government, I congratulate President Buhari. I congratulate Ibrahim-Imam. I also sincerely congratulate the APC.
"I hope that from now on, the party and the government can learn to work in sync. Ibrahim-Imam's appointment shows that the rejected stone has been reserved for the corner of the house," Akande, who is also a former governor of Osun State, said.
