- Gani Adams raised an alarm over the marginalisation of the southwest region
- The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba alleged that there is lopsidedness in the appointments made by President Buhari in the last few years
- Adams noted that only two southwest judges were appointed in about 20 judges in the federation
President Muhammadu Buhari has been accused of marginalising the southwest geopolitical region of Nigeria in terms of appointments into public offices.
This Day reports that the allegation was made on Tuesday, January 28, by the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Chief Gani Adams.
Legit.ng gathered that the Aare alleged while speaking in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti state during the 6th world congress of the Oodua Progressives Union (OPU), that Buhari’s government is tainted with nepotism.
He said the situation whereby only two southwest judges were appointed in about 20 judges in the federation and the majority are from the north is an indication that the president put north over other regions.
Adams stressed that the most important and influential positions at the federal level from one to 15 are occupied by northerners, adding that the government has marginalised the southwest in the area of public office appointments.
He said: “Buhari’s government is tainted with nepotism. You have a situation whereby only two southwest judges are appointed in about 20 judges in the federation and the majority are from the north."
Adams said the world congress was initiated by the OPU, which has a presence in 87 countries, with a view to promoting the culture of the Yoruba race all over the world.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Adams responded to claims that the southwest was planning to break away from Nigeria by starting with the creation of Operation Amotekun.
