    Shekarau’s defection has unbalanced the equation in PDP. Mrs Salik is the first casuality.

      What is unfair treatment in a selective position?

        Selective position is even more complex than an earned position.

        Shekarau complained of not being recognized as an APC leader in Kano.

        Are such leaderships elective or selective?

    Very, very unfair to jamila salik. Shows our president doesn’t really care about professional qualifications. 2015 first, then the people to serve Nigeria best
