EXCLUSIVE REPORTS I've been fair to Igbo despite low votes, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has taken a swipe at those criticising him for alleged marginalisation of the Igbo. 

Buhari said despite getting low votes from people in the region during the 2015 elections , he had been impartial in his appointments .
He spoke during an interview aired on Arise TV on Monday which was monitored by our correspondent . The President had during the interview said if re -elected, it would not take a long time before he chose members of his cabinet .
“ Somebody made an observation that I was not patronising the Igbo from the South East . I told him that when I won the election , I studied the amount of votes I got from all the geopolitical zones .

“ I said I got 198 , 000 from the whole of the South East , which virtually any local government can give me . But I appointed ministers of foreign affairs, labour, industries , and investment, mines and tech ; these four ; I never knew them from Adam . Ministers of States from seven states of the north are under these ministers . How fair do you want me to be?” he added .
