Buhari’s cabinet appointment influences states governors

Consequently, governors and the party leadership at state level are said to be tweaking and retweaking lists of nominees  for the positions of commissioners and special advisers among others, to accommodate party loyalists who were active in the political planning and mobilisation processes leading up to the 2015 general elections.   
In Lagos, it was gathered that some persons earlier tipped for cabinet positions were eventually dumped to accommodate  bigger fish who were positioned for, but failed to clinch appointments at federal level.

The APC coalition in the South West is touted to have given President Muhammdu Buhari the winning edge, considering that he was previously not a strong bet in the area.   
The Afenifere Renewal Group has criticised Buhari’s appointments, saying they failed to make a strong “first impression”.   
Afenifere,a pan-Yoruba socio-political group, in a statement by its publicity secretary, Kunle Famoriyo, said the appointments have created many confusing interpretations, instead of galvanising the country towards an expected course to rebuild Nigeria, as charted in the APC manifesto, as only three persons from the geo-political zone made the list of 30 appointed so far.
“We want to remind Mr President that Yoruba people have never been cannon fodder and will resist any such treatment,”‎ the group said.
