Adesina gave this assurance while speaking on Political Platform, a radio programme on RayPower 100.5FM.
The presidential spokesperson was responding to the gale of criticisms that has trailed the President’s appointments, which are perceived to be skewed in favour of the North. Adesina said the President is not unaware of the need for appointments to reflect the federal character principle, adding that a reflection of the principle will manifest in the appointments to be made next month.
“Nobody can fault the fact that the persons appointed were appointed on merit.
“In terms of the spread, the President has prerogative to appoint and he knows there is federal character. I am sure that there will be balance in the future. These are still early days. At the end of the day, we will have a balance.
“By the time more appointments are made, it will balance out. The President is trying to get the very best of Nigerians. The issue of key positions and no key positions should not be the issue.
“He gave a deadline of September for the appointment of ministers and he will keep to it.”
