*North Central Worst , Benefitted From Only Jonathan

The appointments that have been done so far by President Muhammadu Buhari has not being fair to Christians and has so far been in breach of the law that created the Federal Character.

Barrister Danladi Yarima , Secretary of  Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), North, expressed this while speaking during an interview  in Kaduna.

According to him, CAN is so far not happy with the choice of the President’s appointments as it has not been fair to its members.

“CAN is not satisfied with the appointments of President Buhari so far, neither is the body believing that the Federal Government is fair to its members in terms of appointments.

“The question one would ask is that why is it that when it comes to appointments, the federal character principle even when it is adhered to, is always observed in the breach of the law that created it?” he asked.

Barrister Yerima said that another question begging for an answer is that so far, why is every appointment a Hausa/Fulani Muslim?

“Buhari should come out and tell us why every appointment now must be a Muslim or Hausa/Fulani Muslim. Is he telling us that in Kano, Katsina, Sokoto and other states he has appointed from that there is no Christian?” he further asked.

He said worst hit by the anti-Christian appointments is the North-Central geo-political zone, in spite of being 90 per cent Christian.

“Come to the Middle Belt which has been worst hit by the appointment issue for every government in power with the exception of Jonathan.

“For decades, the Middle Belters have always been at the receiving end and the reasons are obvious, 90 per cent of Middle Belters are Christians,” he said.

    Makole It is expected that you read and understand their complaints before you come to conclusion that they are sentimental. the biggest problem of this country is that when it is better for you even at the spent of others. somebody is saying the facts, you are saying it is sentimental in issues of national interest. the nation should serious considers the interest of all because that is what the constitution said. The bitter true is that you can not never get peace by force but you can make ways for peace to reign no miracle and no magic.

    It is not your area alone that has suffered maginalization under PMB. PMB is not behaving like a politician. He has failed to use fairness in appointments to endear himself to citizens of the various zones. Aside from political appointments, PMB has  replaced  people from South East in particular with his people as if the south east is not part and parcel of Nigeria. Surprisingly Arewa youths and NEF are not advising their man to play a fair game so that all the zones will be convinced that he is presdent of Nigeria and not president of a particular group of the country.
