HURIWA Criticizes President Tinubu's Nepotistic Appointments

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has voiced deep concern over President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s recent appointments, labeling them as unconstitutional and undemocratic. In a statement, HURIWA expressed worry that these appointments suggest an unwelcome pro-ethnic bias within the administration.

“President Tinubu’s swift appointment of Olayemi Cardoso as the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and Zachaeus Adedeji as the acting chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service within just two days has heightened suspicions of favoritism towards his South-West region, especially those linked to Lagos State”.

    HURIWA argued that such appointments run counter to the promise of “Renewed Hope” that brought President Tinubu to power. They pointed out that key roles in security, judiciary, and the economy are now predominantly held by individuals from the South-West, raising concerns about diversity and inclusivity.

    The association called for a transparent, inclusive governance process, emphasizing that political rewards and ethnic nationalism should not dictate the nation’s trajectory. HURIWA also questioned the lack of representation for the South-East in the president’s ministerial appointments.
