South West top list of Buhari’s appointees


Ebun Francis || The Presidency on Saturday evening released a full list of appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari since he assumed office in May 2015.

The special adviser to the President on media and publicity made the list public following a report in Businessday that 81 of President Buhari’s 100 political appointees were from the north.

Mr. Adesina had earlier on Saturday released a graphical representation of the appointments in response to the report.

The graph shows that Ogun state has the highest number of appointments with 21, followed by Imo and Kano states with 15 each, and Edo and the president’s home state of Katsina with 14 each.

The Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, has no appointee, Ebonyi and Abia have two each, Kebbi has three, while Zamfara, Sokoto, Oyo, Enugu, Ekiti and Akwa Ibom have four each.

In the updated list released by Adesina, South West Nigeria took the lion share of the appointments made so far by President Muhammadu Buhari since he took office on 29 May 2015.

According to a list of 157 appointments provided by the Presidency on Saturday, South West Nigerians took 38, followed by the North West, Buhari’s region, which took 30.

North East and South East took 23 slots each, while North Central took 21 and South-South 22.

The figures and names were provided in response to allegations that President Buhari had favoured the Northern part of the country in the appointments announced so far.

The publication proved the contrary.

Rather the South of Nigeria accounted for 83 of the posts while the North took 74.
