The Presidency has assured Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari’s political appointments will balance out very soon. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, stated this on Friday, while featuring on a radio programme, Political Platform, on RayPower 100.5FM.
Adesina said, “Nobody can fault the fact that the persons appointed were appointed on merits.

“In terms of the spread, the President has prerogative to appoint and he knows there is federal character. I am sure that there will be balance in the future. These are still early days. At the end of the day, we will have a balance.
“By the time more appointments are made, it will balance out. The President is trying to get the very best of Nigerians. The issue of key positions and no key positions should not be the issue.
“He gave a deadline of September for the appointment of ministers ‎and he will keep to it.”
