While speaking on a show on RayPower 100.5FM today August 28th, Special Adviser to President Buhari on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, said President Buhari will balance his appointments in future. Many Nigerians were taken aback after Buhari announced key appointments yesterday with majority of those appointed from the Northern region of Nigeria.
“Nobody can fault the fact that the persons appointed were appointed on merits. In terms of the spread, the President has prerogative to appoint and he knows there is federal character. I am sure that there will be balance in the future.
These are still early days. At the end of the day, we will have a balance. By the time more appointments are made, it will balance out. The President is trying to get the very best of Nigerians. The issue of key positions and no key positions should not be the issue. He gave a deadline of September for the appointment of ministers and he will keep to it.” he said
