PDP Media Watchdog to President Buhari: Your appointments is Asymmetrical and Fraudulent


The PDP Media Watchdog has described the appointments so far made by President Buhari as fraudulent and asymmetrical, saying that the President’s anti-corruption war is a charade and a deceit. The group while responding to the recent appointments as announced by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina said that people’s expectation of President Buhari to remove his ethnic and military mentality and embrace democracy may not come to pass after all.

“We mentioned this in our last statements that President Buhari and the APC is only making noise with corruption and probe to cover up their plans to derail this country. The President claimed to be fighting corruption but does not know that even lopsided appointment is also corruption. According to an English dictionary, corruption is defined as ‘dishonest actions that destroys people’s trust in the person or group’ and in another definition, it says, ‘corruption is the misuse of entrusted power (by heritage, education, marriage, election, appointment or whatever else) for private gain’

So, we wish to advise President Buhari to review his appointments to meet federal character otherwise all his efforts at fighting corruption will amount to witch-hunting” the group said. To support their positions, the group went further to list out the positions, names of individuals appointed into such post and the region where these persons hail from.

“Out of 36 known appointments so far, Mr. President and his party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) allocated 11 positions to the South and gave 25 to the North which is a clear departure from the CHANGE mantra the APC promoted before and during the elections” the Watchdog said.

They re-echoed that except President Buhari reverse or invalidate some of his appointments to meet ethnic balance in the country and remove those perceived to be his family member or close associates, Nigerians and the International Community should never support his anti-corruption war which according to the group is only mere witch-hunting.
