Appoint whoever you want even if all from your village - Utomi to BUhari

Popular economist and social critic/analyst Professor Pat Utomi has come out to throw his weight behind President Buhari and his appointments so far. According to Professor Utomi, President Buhari is free to appoint whoever he wants even if they are all from his village.

Speaking with correspondents from Daily Independent, Utomi frowned at the hue and cry arising from what people are calling a lopsided appointment. From Mr Presidents appointments so far, about 18 out of the 24 appointments made so far have all gone to the North. Utomi feels this is irrelevant as what Nigerians desire is a change and not necessarily who occupies where.

Quoting him, he said ”Let’s get serious. Let‘s get to move this country forward and away from all this small, petty issues. To me it is not an important issue and I don’t want to deal with it. The President can appoint everybody from one village. As long as the people can get the job done, let them get it done. That is what Nigerians wanted and that is what they voted for.”

Nigerians have been reacting to the appointments made so far by President Buhari. Some say it is yet too early as hundreds of appointments are yet to be made. Others say that his appointments must be spread equally across the different political zones in Nigeria as anything other than that will be unacceptable.

You spoke my mind, so I don’t have to say something. In a multi ethnic country that is not yet one, it is sad to hear supposedly well placed people say things like this. Like you said, competent and talented people are all over, look for them in all the zones and equal number. Why did the man choose his VP from South West and a Christian?

Thank God Prof is not the President. He would have jettisoned federal character with impunity.

mmmmm Prof. What message does that send to people from other political and ethnic zones? That they don’t have capable hands? Prof, we must be wise and proactive while advicing Mr President. He should choose ONLY capable and honest men and women. No one area of Nigeria enjoys a monopoly of these kinds of people. Prof it actually looks like you are angling for an appointment yourself.
