HURIWA accuses Buhari of nepotism, cronyism in appointments

Published

on

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, today accused
President Muhammadu Buhari of practising nepotism, cronyism and favouritism following recent appointments in the country.  

HURIWA, in a statement condemned the continued domination of strategic appointments by Hausa, Fulani, and Kanuri extraction under his administration.  

“The current Government under President Muhammadu Buhari has skewed all strategic appointments to favour his cronies and political affiliates in the Core Moslem North and a sprinkling of some Christian Northerners but millions of Northerners are left marginalised just like the heavily marginalised Southerners under the current administration, said HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko.

“However the impact is felt more in the far North whereby due to a large-scale state of wars by armed hoodlums many poor individuals in places like Sokoto and Katsina States have since the last two years migrated into Niger Republic for succour and security whilst only a few Northern elites with assets offshore are the few controlling the national assets under the watch of the selective administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

HURIWA blamed the unequal redistribution of national wealth for the total state of anarchy in the North.
