The co-founder of Budgit and a fierce critic of president Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, Seun Onigbinde, has been appointed as a Technical Adviser in the Ministry of Budget and National Planning.
Onigbinde’s appointment became public knowledge on Friday prompting him to delete his Twitter handle, @Seunonigbinde that was full of tweets critical of the Buhari’s administration.
In a tweet earlier in January,few weeks to the presidential election, Onigbinde urged Nigerians not to re-elect Buhari for a second term due to his dismal performance in office.
Nigerians have taken to social media platforms to congratulate him on his appointment while other demonised him for accepting appointment from a government he had constantly criticised in the past few years.
Onigbinde is yet to make a public statement on his appointment since the news broke.
