Femi Adesina has rubbished reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has sidelined the Igbo in the area of giving political appointments.
The Presidency has dismissed insinuations in certain quarters that President Muhammadu Buhari is marginalizing the South East region especially in the area of appointments.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, while featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, maintained that Buhari is a non-sectional leader.
The Presidential aide insisted that the Buhari-led Federal Government is committed to carrying every section of the country along.
Adesina said, “That could be allegations but it does not necessarily make them right. One thing we must realise is that the President has a pan-Nigerian mandate.
 
“The way the country is structured, the way our constitution is, no president can emerge without winning a pan-Nigerian mandate; that was what the President wants.
 
“So, it is not easy for you to then accuse a president and sustain it that he is sectional – no, it is not possible. If he was sectional, he would not be elected in the first place.
“Making an effort to show may not be the right thing. I think it is better to just continue to do what is proper, and that is what the President is doing. He will continue to do what is fair, what is right and what is equitable.”
