Arewa Attacks Osinbajo Over Pencom Boss Appointment
A group going by the name, Arewa Youth Renaissance (AYR) has condemned recent appointment of Mr. Funsho Doherty by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo as the Director General of PENCOM while removing Dikko Abdulrahman, earlier appointed by ailing President Mohammadu Buhari and has now been appointed as Chairman, Governing Board of the Bank of Industry (BoI). Pencom DG is entitled to five years tenure of office, subject to renewal for another term in office.
Arewa group rejected the appointment in its entirety, accusing the Acting President of marginalizing the North.
According to Arewa Youth Renaissance, the acting president took the action knowing full well that the President is on medical leave. “He took the bold step to remove a son of the North by replacing him with a South-West son in his first official appointment as Acting President.
“This bold assertion of authority and appointment has shown the North
what is to come in the days ahead and has also shown the disdain the Acting President has for the North in his first official outing,” stated the group.
The Arewa Youth Renaissance alleged that the earlier appointment by Mr Buhari was fit and proper as it was met with wild jubilations across the country.
“It was seen as a putting a square peg in a round hole by appointing
an accomplished professional with several years of experience, that will be brought to bear on running PENCOM,” the AYR said.
In the terse press release signed by Comrade Ibn Yakassai, Secretary
of AYR, he castigated the Acting President on the sudden change and
removal of Aliyu Dikko Abdulrahman with the replacement of Funsho Doherty from the South-West, saying that it does not follow due process.
