Following the outrage over the northern dominance in the latest appointment by President Buhari, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, has assured Nigerians that the political appointments will be balanced soon.
Adesina spoke while featuring on a radio programme, Political Platform, on RayPower 100.5FM, monitored by our correspondent.
According to him, the President was aware of federal character and expressed the believe that there would be balance by the time he made more appointments in September.
Adesina said, “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.”
