Seun Onigbinde appointment

Oluseun Onigbinde, the co-founder of BudgIT, a budget and public data visualization company, has taken up an appointment in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Onigbinde is now a Technical Adviser, Budget and Planning, under the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning where he would be supporting the Minister of State.

The news of his appointment emerged on social media on Friday and it has generated a series of criticisms as well as commendations from Nigerians on Twitter.

Announcing his appointment in a short note posted on his Medium page on Saturday 7 September, Onigbinde said in the new role he would be supporting the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Agba, along the issues of budget reform, development planning, and revenue growth.

He wrote:

Onigbinde, a virile critic of the economic policies of the Buhari’s administration couldn’t wait for the backlash as he is expected to be confronted with some of his old tweets where he condemned the government’s policies, he swiftly deleted his Twitter account @seunonigbinde with thousands of followers shortly after uploading his complimentary card as his Twitter cover photo.

Some supporters of Buhari have taken to Twitter to share screenshots of his old tweets and also condemn him for taking an appointment from the government he consistently criticised.

In one of the screenshots of his old tweets shared, Onigbinde had tweeted in January 2018:

I will say for the last time if you plan to vote Buhari or you encourage him for another term, you really don’t love Nigeria. You’re either a closet ethnic jingoist or someone who worships mediocrity.”

However, other argued that it is not enough to be a critic, saying he has done the right thing by taking the appointment to contribute his quota to the development of the nation and address what he constantly criticised the government of not doing right. “Nigeria is bigger than the president,” some argued.

Some of those who commended him for taking the appointment described him as competent and fit for the role, they are, however, worried about why Onigbinde chose to deactivate his Twitter account.
