Nigeria's Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has cleared air on the accusation that he is selective, and nepotistic in his political appointments. A Facebook user, Ismaila Farouk from Zamfara State recently criticized the Vice President's recent outings and appointments made in his office describing them as sectional and not in the interest of the north.
