Yobe State marginalised in Buhari’s ap­point­ments –Jirgi

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Balarabe Alka­s­sim, Bauchi

A mem­ber of the APC Pres­i­den­tial Cam­paign Coun­cil in the 2015 gen­eral elec­tions, Al­haji Ibrahim Mo­hammed Jirgi, has cried out over what he called po­lit­i­cal marginal­iza­tion of Yobe State by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari.

In a state­ment is­sued in Bauchi, he said Yobe was left far be­hind in terms of ap­point­ments by the pres­i­dent.

He ar­gued that if the his­tory of Buhari’s elec­toral vic­tory was to be writ­ten to­day, Yobe must fea­ture promi­nently be­cause the elec­torate voted for him over­whelm­ingly.

“We are still Nige­ri­ans and Yobe is still part of the Nige­rian State not Chad or Niger Re­publics. Be­side the ap­point­ment of Rep Khadija Bukar Abba Ibrahim as min­is­ter, there was no other ap­point­ment by Buhari from Yobe State,” he said.

He there­fore urged Pres­i­dent Buhari to do jus­tice and ex­tend his usual fair­ness to Yobe State .
