President Muhammadu Buhari speaks on his fairness towards Southeast to respond to the allegations of South East marginalisation in appointment despite receiving a very low number of votes back in 2015.
The President, during an interview on Arise TV on Monday said, “somebody made an observation that I was not patronising the Igbo from the Southeast. I took the paper from him, I told him that when I won the election, I studied the amount of votes I got from all the geopolitical zones.
“I said I got 198,000 something from the whole of the Southeast; 198, 000 which virtually any local government can give me, but I appointed minister of industries and investment, minister of labour, minister of foreign affairs, minister of mines and tech.”
“But these four, I never knew them from Adam. But from seven states of the north, I have ministers of states, they are under these ministers. How fair do you want me to be?”, he said.
