Femi Adesina, spokesman of President Muhammadu Buhari, says majority of the appointments made by his principal are not from the north.

Adesina said this on Saturday while reacting to report that majority of those appointed by Buhari are northerners.

The presidential spokesman also said despite the “biased reportage”, Buhari is committed to serving all Nigerians.

“To claim, suggest or attempt to insinuate that the president’s appointments are tilted in favour of a section of the country is simply untrue and certainly uncharitable,” he said.


“From all records, majority of the president’s appointees across different portfolios are not from the north, as the publication erroneously alleged.

“If the publication did not have ulterior motives, a simple enquiry from official sources in the presidency would have prevented this unwarranted public disinformation.

“It must be stated clearly that, despite the distractions and biased reportage of this article, President Muhammadu Buhari remains committed to serving all Nigerians, no matter the tribe, ethnicity or region, and he is also determined to ensure that Nigeria remains strong and united.


“He has, and will continue to keep faith with one Nigeria and has shown this with the administration’s diverse projects in different parts of the country’s geo-political zones.”
