The Presidency has said that the appointments of security chiefs are not subject to federal character.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Buhari, Femi Adesina made this known while reacting to reports that the Buhari administration has repeatedly made such appointments without the inclusion of any man or woman of Igbo extraction.

Speaking in an interview with Channels TV, Adesina said while certain appointments are subject to Federal Character, security is not one of them.

According to him, the President can appoint whoever he feels is fit and will deliver the job accurately.

“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 said

The new service chiefs, Saga Gist had earlier reported, are: Major-General Leo Irabor as Chief of Defence Staff; Air Vice Marshal Isiaka Oladayo Amao ss Chief of Air Staff; Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo as Chief of Naval Staff; and General Ibrahim Attahiru as Chief of Army Staff.
