President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that no section of the country - tribe or region, will be marginalised.

He stated this at the palace of the Emir of Daura, Katsina State, Dr. Farouk Umar Farouk, where he was hosted to mark the breaking of the Ramadan fast, Iftar.

Buhari has been criticised by Southern groups for alleged lopsidedness in appointments of heads of the various security agencies in the country.

According to them, the President's appointments did not reflect federal character and the diversity nature of the country.

Pulse recalls that majority of the heads of 14 out of the 17 security agencies in the country were appointed by Buhari, while three of the agencies are headed by Southerners.

But the President affirmed that he will not give room for discrimination of any kind, adding that no action will be taken for or against any section of the country on the basis of prejudice.

“Under my watch, no section of the country would either be discriminated against or marginalised,” Buhari said.
