Igbo youths decry alleged lopsided appointments by Buhari
The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of violating the laws guiding the Federal Character Commission (FCC) with appointment of northerners into key positions in the country.
The Guardian gathered that the FCC is the agency saddled with the responsibility of enforcing Section 4 of the Federal Character Commission enabling law, Act No. 34 of 1996, which states that: “Where the number of positions available cannot go round the states of the federation or the Federal Capital, the distribution shall be on a zonal basis. But in the case where two positions are available, the positions shall be shared between the northern and southern zones.”
The group, in a statement, yesterday, in Abuja, by its President-General, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike, said that the appointment of the principal officers of agencies had been lopsided.
