Nigerians had criticized Mr Buhari’s choice of selecting new Service Chiefs from the North.
And the Presidency through Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, Femi Adesina on an interview with Channels TV says the appointments of security chiefs are not subject to federal character.
“There are certain appointments that are subject to federal character, for instance, the constitution says that there must be a minister from each state of the country.
“However, there are certain appointments that are not subject to federal character and one of them is in the security.
“In security, It is about competence; it is about the ability to deliver. “So, the president will appoint whoever he feels is fit and proper and will deliver to the best for the country and for Nigerians, he added.
