DISCRIMINATORY APPOINTMENTS AGAINST NON-MUSLIMS IN NIGERIA

VIOLATION OF PRINCIPLE OF FEDERAL CHARACTER IN FEDERAL APPOINTMENTS

Section 171 sub-Section 5 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) stipulates that the President in exercising his powers of appointment under this section shall have regard to the Federal Character of Nigeria and the need to promote National unity. A critical look at the list of appointments by this administration shows utter disregard for issues that promote National unity and a gross violation of the Constitution. We wonder how Mr. President can relate the impunity of his administration to his mantra; fight against corruption. By flagrantly violating Sections 171(5) and 10 of the Constitution, the President has presented himself as corrupt.

Below are some of the very important appointments made by “Federal Islamist Jihadist’s imperial Government” to confirm our apprehension:

Chief Executives of Educational institutions:
1] Head of Universities: NUC Prof. Abubakar AdamuRasheed Hausa/Fulani Muslim

2] Head of Polytechnics: Hausa/Fulani Muslim
3] Head of Colleges of Education: Prof. Bappah AliyuHausa/Fulani Muslim

4] Head of TETFUND: Dr. Abdulahi Baffa Hausa/Fulani Muslim

5] Head of JAMB: Prof. Ishaq Oloyede-Professor of Arabic studies–Muslim

6] Head of UBEC Dr. Hameed Bobboyi: Hausa/Fulani Muslim

7] Head of NABTEB: Hausa/Fulani Muslim
8] Head of NTI: Prof. Garba Dahuwa Azare Hausa/Fulani Muslim.

88% of the appointments are Northern Muslim/Fulani Muslim. (Only one person is from South West, nevertheless, a Muslim.)

This is in addition of handing over the Security Units in the Nation to Muslims. President Buhari has masterfully completed the configuration of the entire National Security structure/architecture firmly in the hands of the Northern Hausa-Fulani Muslims alone to the exclusion of all other ethnic groups in Nigeria. This is definitely unfair, not just to Christians but to all non-Muslims in Nigeria.

The Security Units are configured as follows:
1. Police IG ........... Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani

2.Chief of Army Staff ....... Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani

3. Minister for Defense ..... Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani
