HURIWA attacks Buhari over appointment of Gambari as CoS

0 372

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing Professor Ibrahim Gambari as his Chief of Staff.

NURIWA described Buhari’s appointment of his tribesman as nepotistic, adding that the singular action has diminished the President’s status as a statesman and a nationalist.

In a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National media affairs director Miss Zainab Yusuf, and made available to Journalists on Thursday, HURIWA said:

“The demise of the immediate past Chief of Staff Abba Kyari was seen by some observers as the end of nepotism and sectionalism in the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration because those accusing the then powerful CoS from Borno State assumed that as someone who belonged to the infamous Kaduna Mafia, and had lived in Kaduna metropolis which is the centre of Pro-northern politics, that he was instrumental to the heavily biased pro-northern appointments made by the current administration since the past five years.

“But now with these many appointments by President Muhammadu Buhari after the demise of the Chief of staff, it has manifested clearly that President Buhari is personally responsible for these one-sided strategic appointments given to the North.

“Ibrahim Gambari is Fulani. That the President does not even trust a Southerner as his Chief of Staff shows that the much-touted legacy that Muhammadu Buhari is a nationalist and a statesman is at best a ruse and propaganda.”
