Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, has reacted to the appointment of some Nigerians into political offices outside their home states.
Onochie considered the development as a sign of unity in the country, saying "anyone who is fighting hard to divide our nation is fighting a lost battle".
The presidential aide said this in a tweet via her official Twitter handle, @Laurestar, on Thursday, August 15.
Onochie's tweet is in reaction to the appointment of Joe Igbokwe, a southeasterner, by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as a commissioner-nominee in Lagos state.
Others who got political appointment outside their home states, according to Onochie's tweet, are Christopher Akaba and Martins Akumazi.
Akaba was appointed as a senior special assistant on jobs creation and youths empowerment by Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state while Akumazi was appointed as a special adviser on project implementation and result delivery by Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state.
