Lopsided Appointments: Governor Bala Mohammed Backs 17 Southern Colleagues’s Assertion

The Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Mohammed, has backed the 17 Southern governors over their assertion that appointments into Federal Government positions were lopsided.

Mohammed, who is a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), made his position known on Thursday.

Recall that the Southern Governors Forum lamented the lopsided appointments in a 12-point communique released at the end of its meeting in Asaba, Delta State on Tuesday.

Reacting, Mohammed said there was the need to review Federal Government appointments going forward to reflect federal character.

“If you are not fair and equitable in your administration, in your management, if there is nepotism where only one section is given positions in government, then there will be problems.

“There is an iota of truth in what the southern governors said on some sections being highly favoured at the detriment of others.

“What we know in this country as a federalist is that there should always be a balance in terms of appointment of federal offices, even in the local governments.

“If you don’t practise fairness at the top, then you cannot get it at the lower table and people will begin to think of self-actualisation, self-determination and so on and it will reflect negatively. Unless we ensure fairness and equity in the leadership of the country we cannot grow the economy,” the Bauchi governor said.
