Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has backed the resolution of the 17 Southern Governors calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to review federal appointments.
Naija News reports that the Bauchi State Governor stated this while speaking to newsmen on Thursday.
He stated that their is a need to review federal government appointments to reflect federal character, adding that there is no fairness in the allocation of appointments across the geopolitical zones.
“If you are not fair and equitable in your administration, in your management, if there is nepotism where only one section is given positions in government, then there will be problems,” he said.
“There is an iota of truth in what the southern governors said on some sections being highly favoured at the detriment of others.
“What we know in this country as a federalist is that there should always be a balance in terms of appointment of federal offices, even in the local governments.
“If you don’t practise fairness at the top, then you cannot get it at the lower table and people will begin to think of self-actualisation, self-determination and so on and it will reflect negatively. Unless we ensure fairness and equity in the leadership of the country we cannot grow the economy.”
Mohammed said there is more corruption in the country and that some people are treated “as gods” and believe they cannot be touched.
