    Did anyone notice that another northerner took over?why are all the important strategic positions in the hands of the north. I can bet you the attorney general will also be from the north. Now, I am beginning to get worried.

    This is not replacement its called re-assignment afterall he replaced him with another Northerner. My Yoruba brethren is it that Buhari does not also trust you all?

    This Wale is a joker. Did you complain when Ribadu from Adamawa was replaced by Farida Waziri from Benue and then by Ibrahim Lamorde from Adamawa again? Joker.

      @ mimi:
      Yes, everybody (sic) is commenting along tribal lines because many now see these appointments for what they really are, unlike you and several others who have refused to see, choosing blindness rather.
      Do you sincerely agree Buhari is making these appointments based purely on merit or he is doing so with ulterior motives?

    Oh, just shut up! So Buhari appointing only his northern brothers and you foolishly think nothing wrong with it, is seeing past ethnic line? I reason that you think you are being a patriotic Nigerian by choosing to remain blind and honestly, your level of gullibility is boundless, and so is that of many others like you, who defend Buhari’s favouritism and nepotism with the stupid line “It doesn’t matter if he appoints only his brothers and kinsmen. Are they not qualified. It doesn’t matter where they come from, so long they are qualified. We are one Nigeria”. Truth is: If indeed we are one, the president should run an inclusive administration, appoint key positions that will reflect unity in our diversity and promote harmony. Not appointing the north as ‘lords’ over the south to serve ‘master’ north.

    Nigeria is an ethnically diverse country, every Nigerian should have a sense of belonging in this country we call our own. Anything short of that creates rancour, mistrust and strife. And all these undermines the unity of our nation – this is why we have people agitating for Biafra because this administration is not being fair.

    BNers excuse my profanity, I had to be explicit as I can, because the president’s appointments are very disturbing and the fact that many Nigerians are still defending his actions is really disappointing. Every patriotic Nigerian that truly loves this country should stand up for the truth.

    BN post my comment.

    No no for real let’s forget tribes and all that BS.

    Why why would buhari appoint people that didn’t vote for him. It’s like Obama appointing a republican to be his chief advisor!!! Does that make sense???

    They Dont have the same views on anything the way Nigerian politicians are stubborn they will never agree.

    You have to put someone you can trust! Simple common sense.

      Are you for real? So now we’re no longer Nigerians but now PDP and APC citizens. Your reasoning is laughable!

      What about those igbos that voted him, especially the ones in lagos, the ones that saw the need for change because of GEJ failure to end insurgency and some others that feel he (GEJ) didn’t do well enough these past six years? So buhari can’t trust even the yorubas that voted him that he keeps-on appointing his northern brothers to key positions? Your reasoning is absurd!

    No love go look at the results no of the southern states voted for him…

    Again. Politics just as the democrats campaign in the north because the south only votes Republicans.

    Y’all can sit down and vex all you want.
    Next election if you like vote him out.
