Babachir Lawal the newly appointed secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, ,says contrary to speculations, his appointment alongside 5 other appointees by President Buhari last week, was not based on tribal affiliations or religious belief.
“We did not have to pass examination to get appointed into these positions. It was not because of our tribes, or our faiths, or our political groups that we were considered worthy for these positions. If it is such, I am sure none of us would have been considered worthy of these appointments. We appreciate the president and we appreciate God that he has blessed us with these privileged appointments” he told reporters after his swearing in this morning.
