Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, on Friday assured the country that President Muhammadu Buhari will balance out his political appointments in due course.
Adesina gave the assurance while featuring on “Political Platform,” a radio programme on RayPower 100.5FM, in apparent reaction to criticisms that had trailed the President’s appointments believed to favour the North and contravene the federal character principle.
Arguing that the appointments were President Buhari’s prerogative, Adesina submitted that nobody could fault the merits of the appointment.
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.”
