Journalist Jaafar Jaafar wrote a “apologetic” letter to his fellow Northerners who were outraged by a Facebook post he made criticizing President Buhari for the appointments he had made up to that point.


Jaafar criticized the President in his first post for picking another another Northerner. He was responding to the nomination of Dauda Biu, the acting Corps Marshal of the FRSC’s Finance and Accounts Division, as the Corps Marshal. Jaafar wrote

”Even FRSC, this man is appointing a northerner! With all the northerners forming the country’s security architecture today, security situation has deteriorated in the region.

When Buhari leaves office, we, northerners, will have no ground to groan under lopsided appointments.”

Some Northerners apparently attacked him for his comment. Jaafar took to his page to share a rather sarcastic apology to his fellow Northerner.


To those who are angry with my post on Buhari’s chronic nepotism, let me ‘correct’ it here:

The Minister of Defence Bashir Magashi; Minister of Police Affairs Maigari Dingyadi; National Security Adviser Babagana Monguno; IGP Usman Alkali Baba; Chief of Army Staff Faruq Yahaya; Chief of Naval Staff Awwal Gambo; DG of SSS Yusuf Bichi; DG of NIA Ahmed Rufai; CG of Customs Hameed Ali; CG of Immigration Isah Idris Jere; CG of Prisons Halliru Nababa; CG of NSCDC Ahmed Abubakar Audi; Chairman of NDLEA Buba Marwa; CG of Federal Fire Service Abdulganiyu Jaji and; Corps Marshal of FRSC Dauda Biu are all Southerners and they made the country safer than ever before.
