The Buhari administration has come under intense scrutiny recently over the concentration of appointments in one region. SBM Intelligence has curated the appointments since May 2015 to separate the facts from the assumptions.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this infographic stated that the number of appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari since coming into office was 121. This figure is inaccurate as at close of business on Thursday, 7 July. The number has now been updated to 129 to include Board Directors and Security appointments earlier missed.
