Buhari Discriminates Against Northern Christians

143

BuhariAre Northern Christians among the 97% who voted for Buhari? We know that Plateau and Benue states are predominantly Christian and there are sizable number

of Christians in Adamawa, Niger, Kwara, Nasarawa, Kaduna, Bauchi, Taraba, Borno, Yobe Kwara and Kogi states voted for Buhari, that enabled him win the Presidency.

Why are the votes of Christians (only 2 out of 29 appointments of Northerners) not reflected in appointments of Northerners so far?

Why are appointments from predominantly Christian states like Plateau given to only Muslims from the states?

Are there no qualified Christians from the North that can meet Buhari’s “angelic” qualities for appointment?

Are Northern Christians not northern enough in Buhari’s definition of Northerners?

I raise these questions because of the obvious discrimination against Northern Christians who got only two out of the lopsided twenty-nine appointments of Northerners as shown below.
