The Presidency has described as false, mischievous and misleading a media report that President Muhammadu Buhari has unduly favoured the northern parts of the country in his appointment of heads of federal government agencies.

The media report had claimed that 81 out of 100 appointments made by President Buhari were from the North.

According to a graph made available to newsmen by Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, Ogun state where Vice President Yemi Osinbajo hails from, leads the remaining 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja in appointments of Chief Executive Officers of federal agencies.

Adesina argued that if the writers of the report had done minimal research, they would have found out that the appointments made so far do not favour the north in any way.

The graph showed that on a scale of 0 to 25, Ogun State tops the list of states from where CEOs of federal agencies hail from with 21.
Next to Ogun State on the graph are Imo and Kano States with 15 each.
Katsina, the home state of the President and Edo State share the third position with 14 each while they are followed by Anambra, Kogi and Kwara that have 13 each.

According to the document, Kaduna has 12; Adamawa and Bauchi have 11 each while Borno and Lagos have 10 each.

Benue, Delta, Niger and Osun states have nine each; Gombe and Jigawa have eight each; Rivers has seven while Bayelsa and Ondo have six each.
Cross River, Nasarrawa, Plateau, Taraba and Yobe have five each; Enugu, Ekiti, Akwa Ibom, Oyo, Sokoto and Zamfara have four each; Kebbi has three; while Ebonyi and Abia States have two each.
The FCT has nothing recorded against it on the graph.
