Buhari: I Have Been Fair To Igbo Despite Low Votes by sarrki(m): 9:36pm On Jan 08
President Muhammadu Buhari has taken a swipe at those criticising him for alleged marginalisation of the Igbo.

Buhari said despite getting low votes from people in the region during the 2015 elections, he had been impartial in his appointments.

He spoke during an interview aired on Arise TV on Monday which was monitored by our correspondent.


The President had during the interview said if re-elected, it would not take a long time before he chose members of his cabinet.

“Somebody made an observation that I was not patronising the Igbo from the South East. I told him that when I won the election, I studied the amount of votes I got from all the geopolitical zones.


“I said I got 198,000 from the whole of the South East, which virtually any local government can give me. But I appointed ministers of foreign affairs, labour, industries, and investment, mines and tech; these four; I never knew them from Adam. Ministers of States from seven states of the north are under these ministers. How fair do you want me to be?” he added.

Please Can someone explain democracy in relation to the constitution of the FRN?

What is nepotism about him ?

He reconstructed most of the roads in the southeast abandoned by past administration

He paid the Biafrans veterans

Chose Igbo as one of his Vice President during Anpp

So please redifine your question

No be lie were Amaechi talk say, this man no dey read, and him no sabi book.
appointing ministers from every state is not a favour but a right, according to our Federal Character law.
And being the President of a country means, treating every region fairly, not minding who gave you more or less votes.

In essence Buhari is telling you he has given you more than your due and so you should be grateful to him. Do you remember the Nnamdi kanu saga when you all supported that charlatan to destabilise Buhari's government? If I were Buhari I will treat you less charitably

Listen to his reasoning....how more democratic do you want him to go?

Democracy is not about constitution....its about numbers.

Buhari can get 198,000 votes just in Ereko ward in Lagos. That's less than the local govt sef.

Ibo has no shame. 198,000 in the entire SE?

You deserved your neglect under Buhari. You earned it with that figure.

He is not vindictive. He exercised democratic principles. Very nice of him.

All politics & Democratic games have a reward system. If u raised a firm and wide support base for a politician, u raised enough funds and campaign strongly for a candidate who secure victory, U most be rewarded.
There is prize for loyalty and support in any Democratic setting.
Buhari is Fair to people who doesn't gives him any/much support, by rewarding them more with more than what they are supposed to get.

Its like a mother saying,"i still breast-fed you despite the trouble you gave me during pregnancy" Before nko?!

And anyways, we all know that whatever he did or is doing is to increase his chances of winning. I'm not a fan of his neither am i for Atiku. Although I know I'll eventually have to choose the lesser of both evils.
