Avowed critic of President Muhammadu Buhari,  Seun Onigbinde who is also the Director and co-founder of BudgIT, has been appointed by the federal government as a technical adviser at ministry of budget and national planning.

The data analyst, who often criticised the current administration, disclosed this through his Medium account as his Twitter account is deactivated.

Onigbinde’s appointment has generated mixed reactions from Nigerians on Twitter.

Joe Abah, director of DAI Nigeria, an international development firm implementing programmes covering governance in more than 100 countries worldwide, commended the appointment.

“I am pleased that Seun Onigbindehas been given an appointment by the Federal Govt. When I tell young people not to be too extreme, they abuse me as “Fencist.” In 2015, you are all in for Buhari. 2019, you are all in against Buhari. Your country is bigger than Buhari. Think am o,” he tweeted.

But some Twitter users reacted negatively to the appointment, saying such was not expected of the BudgIT co-founder.
