Popular Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere has weighed in on the recent statements by the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar II about president Buhari’s lop-sided appointments dividing Nigeria, calling it ‘a timely worry’.
In a statement through its National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, the Sultan’s complaints resonates with complaints about allocation of resources. the statement read;
“I think it is a timely worry from the Sultan and it resonates with complaints about appointments and allocation of resources.
This is a multi-ethnic country but when we begin to treat other sections of the country as if they do not matter or exist, it is not healthy for the unity of the country.
The President must watch out for such and create a balance. He cannot count chief executive officers as one from a section of the country and count a messenger as one for another section of the country and now say he has appointed one from each section of the country.
He must ensure there is balance because there are qualified people for all positions in the land.”
