A Journalist, Jafaar Jafaar has tendered an ‘apology’ to his fellow Northerners who attacked him for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari over his lopsided appointments in favour of the North.

Jaafar had in a post on his Facebook page criticized Buhari for always appointing Northerners to head almost all the security agencies in Nigeria yet the insecurity is getting worse in the region.

His reaction followed the appointment of a northerner, Deputy Corps Marshal, Finance and Accounts, Dauda Biu, as the acting Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) following the retirement of Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi.

He said with the level of nepotism Buhari has exhibited, when he leaves, Northerners will have no ground to complain if another president’s appointments do not favour the North and if security in the North did not improve.

He 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,” he wrote.

He received a lot of backlash from Northerners for speaking against President Buhari.

Reacting to the backlash, Jaafar made another post to "apologize" to his fellow Northerner.

The sarcastic apology reads:


"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.
