Is President Muhammadu Buhari regionally biased?

Since Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as the President of Nigeria, on May 29th, he has made series of appointments, which has raised criticisms among Nigerians. Some say, his appointments do not reflect the nation’s constitution, which states that, the federal character should seek to ensure that appointments to public service institutions, fairly reflect the linguistic, ethnic, religious, and geographic diversity of the country.

On Thursday, it was announced that President Buhari has appointed five people to assist with the economy. Four out of the five people appointed are from Northern Nigeria. Members of Buhari’s own political party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) have expressed disapproval of his appointments, with discontent from Nigerians as well.
