The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said President Muhammadu Buhari is not lopsided in appointments made into public offices.
Some sections of Nigerians have accused Buhari of being sectional in his appointment of heads of the nation’s security apparatus, following the appointment of Yusuf Bichi as the new Director-General of Department of State Services (DSS).
Speaking during an advocacy visit to Channels TV, the minister stated that the president could be judged only on isolated case in the security sector.
Mohammed said: “Those talking about balancing and federal character should stop focusing on one aspect.
“Let us see how many Permanent Secretaries, Director-Generals and Executive Directors and Heads of Parastatals we have in Nigeria today and where they come from.
“This will give us a more insight to the fact that this administration is not lopsided in appointments.
“We should stop looking at only one side to make our judgment and anywhere we notice any lopsidedness government will correct it.”
