President Buhari Favored The South-East Than The North – Buba Galadima Says

The former national secretary of the defunct CPC said this in an interview with The Sun, while addressing the perceived marginalization of some people.

His words;

The South-East (SE), the South-south (SS) and to a certain extent the South-west (SW), are the most favored people in this government in terms of appointments. The entire economy of Nigeria is in the hands of the SS and people of Igbo extraction.

The entire oil industry is in the hands of the Igbo of SE extraction. He decides who gets what, who does what. 75% of those who own oil wells and don’t make noise about it are from the SS and SE. Tell Ibe Kachikwu to give you the list of oil well owners. You will be shocked. .

The entire economy and financial system of Nigeria is in the hands of SS and SE. The Governor of CBN makes financial policy, and determines who gets what. Babatunde Fowler is from Sokoto? Fashola who is in charge of the energy, housing and road network is from Maiduguri? .

The man in charge of the entire maritime sector from which Nigeria gets highest revenue, Amaechi is from Kano? We Northerners should be the one complaining, and my reason is simple. There are about 557 agencies of government and parastatals and Buhari has not reconstituted up to 30 of these parastatals.

85% of the remaining are being headed by the people of the SS, SE and to a certain extent SW because they were GEJ’s appointees and Buhari did not remove them. As I speak to you, nobody from Yobe, Jigawa, Taraba, Gombe, Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Kogi, and Benue has been appointed as head of any federal parastatal apart from the statutory ministerial appointments.

In 2003 and 2007, Buhari picked Igbos as his running mates and got 3 votes. If Buhari doesn’t like them, don’t you think he should flush those heads of parastatals and agencies who are from those zones and give those who supported him?

He got the highest votes from Yobe State. Yet, he appointed nobody from Yobe. Same with Zamfara. If we want to build a country, we should throw away primordial sentiments, hate and spite.”

    No doubts igbos hold 75% of this nation’s economy but that of majority appointment in this administration to SS and SE isn’t true.
