Presidential Aide Dismisses Faceless Nepotism Charges Against Osinbajo

Describes comments as unfair, untrue and laughable
The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Legal Matters, Dr Bilkisu Saidu, has dismissed recent comments credited to a faceless Social Media contributor using the name Ismaila Farouk from Zamfara State about appointments made by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, into some Federal agencies and the ones done in the office of the Vice President.

Dr Saidu, regarded as one of the foremost aides to the Acting President, spoke on "Shirin Safe", an interview programme on BBC Hausa Radio on Sunday. She was a law teacher from the Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University Sokoto before she was named an SSA in the Office of the Vice President last year.
She described the nepotism charges as simply laughable, untrue, unfair and should not be taken seriously.

According to her contrary to Mr Farouk’s conclusions, most senior positions on the Vice President’s office are held by Muslims including by individuals who are from the north.

Said she, "If you are talking about religion, the most senior official or position in the Office of the Vice President apart from the Vice President himself, is the office of the Deputy Chief of Staff to the President and the name of the person occupying that office is Abdulrahman Ipaye and he is a Muslim."

"The positions following the Chief of Staff’s in the order of hierarchy are the Special Advisers in the office of the Vice President. Here there are three Special Advisers and two out of the three Special Advisers are Muslims, Senator Babafemi Ojudu and Barrister Mariam Uwais from Kano State," she added.

Dr Saidu said that a cursory look at the other senior positions in the Vice President’s office indicate that religious consideration was never a factor in the appointment of the officers, noting that "If you look at the remaining senior positions in that office, most of them are in the hands of Muslims from the north."

She said: "For instance the person in charge of Protocol (i.e. the Director of Protocol) is Ambassador Abdullahi Gwary from Yobe State; those in charge of welfare and health in the office of the Vice President are mostly Muslims and from the north."

"Worthy of note are the stewards, those who serve the Vice President’s meals, they are mostly Muslims, so what do the critics mean when they talk about religion."

Dr Saidu concluded that when non-progressive minded people fail to win public support on their personal agenda they often resort to the use of religion given its sensitivity among Nigerians.

According to her, "when people lack what to use or have exhausted all avenues to speak evil against perceived opponents or ridicule the good works that they are doing, they resort to use of religion or other means possible to damage the image and reputation of that opponent."

The faceless Ismaila Farouk from Zamfara State recently criticized Acting President Yemi Osinbajo’s recent outings and appointments made in his office describing them as sectional and not in the interest of the north.

Their wahala. How did Buhari's nepotism remove hunger from the north and how can Osinbade's nepotism do so in the south west?

Politicians are all the same in Nigeria and beyond. How they share the posts among themselves is less of a concern to me at the moment because this Buhari-induced economic recession is biting me and most Nigerians sooo hard.

All I need at the moment is to be able to meet my basic needs and live a meaningful life in this geographical space God has put me. I'm not asking for more from this wicked, insensitive, inept and lying government,

Buhari is a gross mistake, unfortunately Mr. Mere Commisioner doesn't appear a better replacement either.

I think the problem with the Dr Farouks of this world is the fact that they view appointments into office as a means of getting their tribesmen into office in the hope that some of the money shared might trickle down to them.

Speaking bluntly, this is a common attitude amongst most Nigerians. Political appointments are not viewed as a means of productivity on behalf of the nation, they are viewed as just another means to share money.

That is a big reason why I personally do not believe in the calls for restructuring, or even the calls for self-determination. Not because they are wrong calls, or flawed calls...but because in the Nigerian context, most of these calls are for the most part fuelled by one thing, and one thing alone, cornering some part of the goodies distributed from the sale of our natural resources abroad under the belief that other parts of the country are benefiting at the expense of others, and vice versa.(One thing I have noticed from the way our leaders talk...and even followers, it is usually a variant of 'we are not getting enough money from the center, and we will do terrible things to make sure we get it').

If we want things to change in this country...we have to get rid of our 'money must be shared mentality'. Doing that is the first step to being a truly developed nation

Why should anyone even take the accusations seriously in the first place, if not the kind of sick and twisted blackmailing ethnic politics being played in Nigeria.
We all saw the list of newest political appointees by Osinbajo the other day, and most people commended the list for how balanced it was.
So detractors should find something else to use as their blackmail tool abeg. undecided

I think this is exactly what the faruk person is doing.

They referred to the ismaila as "faceless". Do you have any proof that this faceless person exists? Any links to anything that proves this 'Dr Ismaila Farouq' exists?

Dr Bilkisu, a Muslim from the north just rubished the idiocy of your 'Dr Ismaila'. You have a contrary list?

Unfortunately, the masses will take sides again without looking at the big picture from those behind this mischief. You'll see many of them on this platform throwing insults at each other.
