Why replace Kemi Adeosun with another Northerner – Nigerians vent

Kemi Adeosun dropped her resignation on Friday after the certificate forgery scandal.

To replace her, President Muhammadu Buhari approved that the Minister of State Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed.

Ahmed is to henceforth oversee the Ministry of Finance with effect from today, September 15th.

However, the appointment of Zainab Ahmed, a northerner has sparked national debate. While some have argued that priority shouldn’t be placed on the tribe of the appointee but on her qualifications, some others say Buhari is tribalistic.
