God bless Buhari on new appointments ! by Wale ojo Lanre

God bless Buhari on new appointments !
President Mohammed Buhari is proving to be a nationalist in his posture to governance and appointments. .
To some of us who are ethnicists and tribalist jingoists , the latest appointments would be taken out of context or viewed via ethnic and sectional prism .
Yes , that is our being .
No rationality and consideration that others are parts and partakers of the common weal and wealth of the nation .
It is always good when our men or people from our ethnic side are appointed and provincial when others are not
Even , if the appointment is to correct the imbalance of status quo ante
My people will still raise their voice
There is no law in Nigeria constitution that apportioned some specific posts to a specific ethic group .
Yes .
A President decides whoever he wishes to work with .
A President with gut will not just because of satisfying ethnic jingoists settled for someone he cannot vouch for
This is what has been one of the banes of our political system
It is clear that when we are selecting winning team for Eagles or any National Team , WAZOBIA is relegated to the background
Let's the President select his Team that he believes can help steer the ship of this country to a safe bank
Let us stop all these tribal and ethnic jingoism in appointment
Let the man in the saddle fish out the best for him
Let it be well with Nigeria .
I agree with part of my brothe from Erinmope Ekiti on this
it will help to clear some of these misgivings about the President's appointment

: ".......This has given vent to the charge of marginalisation. This may be a matter of perception than reality. We need to know the spread of existing appointments and not only those made by Buhari. For example, the immediate Minister of Finance Okonjo was Ibo, PS Anastasia Nwaobosi was/still IBO, DG DMO Dr Nwanko was/is Ibo, NSE Aruma Oteh was IBO, NSEC Peter Obi is IBO, AMCON Chike Obi, DG Budget office was IBO, Governor CBN was/ still IBO. This couldn't have been deliberately done by GEJ! Some of these people are still holding these offices.
The South is also found of mischievously dividing itself along west, east and south-south but always sees the north as one. The truth is, apart from Bauchi , there is no indigenous Hausas in the north east. The north is also divided into west, east and Central. Let us distribute current appointments along this line, it will then be clear that the appointments might not be as "lopsided" as they seem."

The only Constitutional guideline for making Federal appointments is the Federal Character Principle. So far, President Mohammadu Buhari is still very far from violating that provision.
As a matter of fact,he needs to relieve more southerners of Federal appointments in other not to violate the Federal Character principle.
