President Buhari has vowed to ensure that all appointments in his administration is distributed equitably among the 36 states of the federation.
President Buhari who has been accused repeatedly of lopsided appointment since the beginning of his administration, made the promise when he spoke with a delegation of Akwa Ibom state elders in the state house Abuja yesterday September 17th.
“I have taken note of your appreciation of appointments into the Federal Service from your state. I assure you that I shall continue to be fair and equitable in federal appointments to all states of the country,” Buhari told the delegation. Last week, Nigerians on social media accused President Buhari of nepotism and tribalism after the removal of the acting DG of DSS Matthew Seiyefa and the appointment of the new DG of DSS Yusf Magaji Bichi.
He has also been accused of napotism after the recent appointment of Zainab Ahmed, as the acting Minister of Finance, following Kemi Adeosun’s resignation.
