“One set are the personal privilege of Mr. President, as far as his personal staff are concern. The other set has to do with a few important and strategic persons that are going to help him either in the fight against corruption or the fight against insurgency in the North-East, but this is not where to play the political balancing game.”

“The President has the right to appoint those he has confidence in because these are the areas where he has made promises to Nigerians. But we have thousands of political appointments and he has just made a few appointments while thousands are still waiting.”
