August 28, 2015 – Buhari’s New Appointments Of Northerners Angers APC Leaders

President Buhari released a new list of politicians that will be serving in his administration yesterday.

Buhari reportedly approved the list without consulting top leaders in his party, a move that angered many.

Some APC leaders who spoke to Punch Correspondents yesterday complained that the new appointment tilted in favour of the North and said the party must move fast to cope with the backlash of expected rumblings in the polity.

“The President does not consult before making most of these appointments and I can tell you that Nigerians are going to term the party and the President as a northern party and the President of Northern Nigeria,” a leader of the party said to one of our correspondents late on Thursday.

Another APC leader in the South-West who requested anonymity said:  “This is not good at all. Why should he choose everybody from the North? I am sure he did not confide in anybody before drawing up the list and making the announcement. We will continue to watch. It is condemnable.”

Check out the names of Buhari’s new appointees

  • Babachir David Lawal – Secretary to the Government of the Federation
  • Abba Kyari – Chief of Staff to the President
  • Col. Hameed Ibrahim Ali (rtd.) – Comptroller-General, Nigerian Customs Service
  • Kure Martin Abeshi – Comptroller-General, Nigerian Immigration Service
  • Senator Ita S.J. Enang – SSA to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate)
  • Hon. Suleiman A. Kawu – SSA to the President on National Assembly Matters (House of Representatives)

Oga Buhari feels comfortable with his people.

    Keep quiet! You southern blabber mouths,when our people( obasanjo and Jonathan) were there they did the same thing. I trust his judgement all we southerners know is making foolish noise. Gen. Buhari is the man that will clean the mess in this country. I am sure these are morally sound folks not simpletons. He put them in place to serve Nigeria not the north.

    What has origin got to do with performance? Wasn’t it your brother, Gen. Obasanjo, that put Jonathan there to torment Nigerians? Enang, as I note from the appointees, is from Cross-River area. Why must we read tribalism into every action? As long as the job is done properly, who cares where a person comes from? The only reason they are complaining is that they would prefer to pick their own candidates, in order to manipulate them and we return to Jonathan-like era. President Buhari is not standing for that. So, rather than support him and pray that he succeeds, you start running your mouth and misinterpreting his well-intended actions. That explains why Nigerians get what they deserve. Why should a retired grandfather who had contributed to the development of Nigeria in the past, now compelled to come rescue us from the mess created by younger, brainless canker worms called leaders? Kudos, Mr President, the Lord is your strength.
