Presidency Says Buhari Is Not Bias; reveals Ogun, Imo, Kano lead in appointments

Ogun, the home state of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, leads the remaining 35 states and FCT, Abuja in appointments of CEOs of federal agencies so far made by the Federal Government.

This was contained in a graph made available to journalists on Saturday by the Presidency to fault a recent media report that claimed that 81 out of 100 appointments made by President Buhari are from the North. The graph below...


The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, in making the document available insisted that Buhari’s appointments are not lopsided in favour of the North as suggested by the media report.

The graph showed that on a scale of 0 to 25, Ogun State tops the list of states from where CEOs of federal agencies hail from with 21.

Next to Ogun State on the graph are Imo and Kano States with 15 each.

Katsina, the home state of the President and Edo State share the third position with 14 each while they are followed by Anambra, Kogi and Kwara that have 13 each.

According to the document, Kaduna has 12; Adamawa and Bauchi have 11 each while Borno and Lagos have 10 each.

Benue, Delta, Niger and Osun states have nine each; Gombe and Jigawa have eight each; Rivers has seven while Bayelsa and Ondo have six each.

Cross River, Nasarrawa, Plateau, Taraba and Yobe have five each; Enugu, Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Oyo, Sokoto and Zamfara have four each; Kebbi has three; while Ebonyi and Abia States have two each.

The FCT has nothing recorded against it on the graph.
