Reno Omokri, an activist and a convener of the ENDSARS protest and campaign, in one of his recent tweets talked about how several top positions in the country are occupied by Northern male Muslims.
After making findings, I discovered this to be the truth. We have three arms of government in the country. The executive, the legislature and the judiciary. Let's look at the head in each of these arms.
- The Executive: President Muhammadu Buhari (President of Nigeria)
- The Legislative: Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan (Senate President)
- The Judiciary: Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad (Chief Justice)
You think this ends here? Let's keep moving.
I also checked out the people occupying the top positions of these agencies Reno mentioned, and here are my findings.
-Inspector General of Police: Mohammed Abubakar Adamu
- Chief of Army Staff: Tukur Yusuf Buratai
- Chief of Air Staff: Sadique Abubakar
- Chairman of EFCC: Mohammed Umar
- Director General of the State Security Service: Yusuf Magaji Bichi
- INEC Chairman- Mahmood Yakubu
- NNPC Chairman - Mele Kyari
I can keep going on and on, for you to realize that truly, there is very little or no balance at all. For a country which has over two hundred and fifty ethnic groups, it is very convenient that the north is in most of the country's top positions.
Reno's tweets made people drop comments. Here are a few.
You're free to drop your opinion on this as well.
