A letter from President Buhari seeking Senate’s confirmation of the appointment of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Tunde Lemo, as Chairman, Federal Emergency Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) as well as six others, has jittered the Senate into probing all appointments of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Senate has mandated its committee on Federal Character to look into all appointments of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This was made known on Thursday where the Senate said it was in direction of the reportedly lopsidedness or its equivalent in the government following an observation made by the Deputy President of the Senate Ike Ekweremadu, on this.
Sources said that according to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Federal Character principle says: “The composition of the Government of the Federation or any of its agencies and the conduct of its affairs shall be carried out in such a manner as to reflect the federal character of Nigeria and the need to promote national unity, and also to command national loyalty, thereby ensuring that there shall be no predominance of persons from a few State or from a few ethnic or other sectional groups in that Government or in any of its agencies”.
