Since the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29 as the 6th Executive President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the frequency of his major appointments from the north has generated murmurs of unease from citizens.

Political analysts who expressed concerns, lamented that the mantra of change that the All Progressives Congress, APC, was parroting, may not be holistic as President Buhari appears to be ?pursuing a northern agenda.?

Of the nine appointments made by Buhari so far, eight are from the North, while one is from the South.

Buhari's appointments so far:

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Mrs Amina Zakari (North),

Head of Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, Mordecai Ladan (North)

 Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris (North)

Chief Security Officer, Abdulrahman Mani (North)

The State Chief of Protocol, Lawal Kazaure (North)

Aide De Camp, ADC, Lt. Col Mohammed Abubakar (North)

 Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu (North)

 Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina (South)

 Chief of Staff, Col Hamid Ali (North)

 Director of State Security Service, Lawal Daura (North)

Many Nigerians have claimed that Buhari has favored the North so far with his appointments, also suggesting reasons why they felt President Buhari was making  lopsided appointments,  probably to compensate the North which turned out massively to vote for him in the last presidential election.
