Saraki tells Buhari: Appoint people from SE, SS, they are also Nigerians

Saraki tells Buhari: Appoint people from SE, SS, they are also Nigerians
Senate president Bukola Saraki has advised Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari to quit ethnic sentiments and appoint people from all parts of the country rather than sourcing help only from the Northern part of the country – the region where he received the bulkiest amount of votes during the 2015 general elections.

Saraki said during the 1 year anniversary of the 8th Senate at the National Assembly today:

“We must find a way to bring the best brains in our country on board wherever they may be found. Even those who did not vote for us but believe in the change that we all believe is necessary to move our country forward should be given a seat at the table.

“If we are able to mobilize the best human resources that God has bountifully blessed our country with, I have no doubt that with God on our side, we shall overcome.

“We note the Federal Government’s plan to invest N500 billion in social protection programmes in the current budget. We want to urge the government to ensure that appropriate mechanism is devised to ensure that the benefits of these programmes get to those who are genuinely in need.

“It is important that, as we move forward in this fight, considerable attention is paid to strengthening the anti-corruption agencies to enable them discharge their functions with greater efficiency and fairness.”
