Prioritize northern Christian’s appointment, group urges Tinubu
A group under the auspices of Northern Christian Youth Professionals has called on the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to prioritize the appointment of Northern Christian in his new administration and government parastatals.
According to the PUNCH, the Chairman of Northern Christian Youth Professionals, Isaac Abrak, made this call in a statement on Tuesday.
Speaking further on the appointment of competent Christians of Northern extraction as compensation for their backing at the last election, Abrak opined that such decision can balance the Muslim-Muslim ticket that earned Tinubu’s victory at the polls in 2023 presidential election in line with calls for fairness and federal character.
“With this in mind, we would like to humbly remind you of the support we provided during your campaign and respectfully request that you prioritise the appointment of Northern Christians into key strategic positions within your administration.
“Northern Christians have long yearned for increased representation and inclusion in decision-making processes. By appointing deserving Northern Christians to important roles such as the Secretary General of the Federation, Security Chiefs, and other vital positions, you would not only acknowledge our collective support but also ensure that the diverse voices and perspectives of our region are duly represented at the highest levels of governance.
“President Tinubu, the road ahead may not be easy, but we firmly believe that your leadership, along with that of your Vice President, holds the promise of positive transformation for our beloved nation. The Northern Christian Youth Professionals pledge our unwavering support and commitment to your administration’s endeavours. We stand ready to work hand in hand with you, offering our expertise and resources to help achieve the noble goals you have set forth,” he said.
