Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, has explained why many people believe that the President is biased in his political appointments.

Adesina, who admitted that Buhari’s appointments were more favourable to some regions, said other regions would not be left out as there were still many appointment to be made.

Speaking on a Channels Television programme on Sunday, the Presidential aide said “there are some (appointments) that are not necessarily subject to federal character.”

“The security system often times operates on hierarchy and efficiency. So, if you have a senior person who is also efficient and because he comes from a certain region, you bypass him, I think you are being unjust and unfair to somebody”, he added.

He said the life of every Nigerian was a priority to the present administration and that as such, the President would not overlook any ethnic group, religion or individual in his appointment.

“It amazes me when people say they have not heard on this and that. What they expect is that the President will come out personally to talk on those things, which I don’t think is the thing to do.

“Yes, the President may have not adopted the style of other leaders, but the life of every Nigerian is precious to him”,

he said.
