Buhari appoints Lawal SGF, five others, sidelines South East

The Nigerian President, General Muhammadu Buhari (Rted) Thursday, appointed Babachir David Lawal, from Adamawa State, as Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Abba Kyari, from Borno, as his Chief of Staff, reports ITRealms.

Other appointments include Hameed Ali, a retired colonel, as the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service, interestingly overlooking competent career customs official as not suitable enough for the post.

He also named Kure Martin Abeshi as the Comptroller-General of Nigerian Immigration Service, Messrs. Ali and Abeshi are from Kano and Nasarawa states respectively.

ITRealms gathered that a former Senator, Ita Enang, from Akwa Ibom was appointed senior special assistant to the president on Senate affairs, while Suleiman Kawu of Kano, who is a former House of Representatives member, was named the president’s senior special assistant on House of Representatives.

In all, the six officials brought to 29 the total number of key staffers who will man the economy from energy, defense to other important sectors of governance for an administration that is already 100-day old.

The appointments made by the president so far have been adjudged lopsided as no single person from the South East of Igbo extraction has been found worthy to be part of Buhari’s administration, reports
