President Buhari has been accused of being lopsided with his political appointments which have favoured his cronies.
Annkio Briggs, environmental and human rights activist, has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointments are lopsided.
The Niger Delta activist maintained that Buhari gave, “critical positions” in his government to his “region, friends and people of his religion.”
Speaking with Vanguard, Briggs said the Presidency lied to Nigerians by saying the current Federal Government is unbiased in its appointments.
According to Annkio-Briggs, “As far back as 2015 from the portfolios of the ministerial appointments, to the National Security Adviser, NSA, Air Force, Police, Defence, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Department of State Services, DSS, Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, National Immigration Service, NIS, and many other appointments, complaints have come from the Niger-Delta, South-West, South-East and Middle-Belt that President Buhari gave the critical positions to his region, relatives, friends and people of his religion.
“It is therefore irrelevant and untrue for the presidency or the president’s media people to attempt to lie to Nigerians and the world in saying that his appointments, so far, are not lopsided.
“Anyway, if it makes them feel better by telling themselves those lies, that is okay. We know what we know.”
