    The APC campaign team was very professional and I am pleased with the appointment of Garba. Not forgetting that Femi Adesina is a seasoned professional who is not petty like some of his peers in the media world.

      Sometimes, It shouldn’t be taken personal. GEJ mostly appointed his people and Igbos. That’s just how the game is played. You go with who you feel will get the job with but work well together.

      APC campaign professional?

      If they where professionals how come Buhari has denied all their campaign promises!
      The campaign was bogus,costly and full lies.
      Ok noted professional liers. He has just hired people who will continually deceive Nigerians that they are working.
      No fears social media will dissect their lies.
      Still awaiting their miracles.

    Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) and Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity). Please what is the difference?
    Congrats to them. Hope you do a better job than Abati, Okupe and Reno…They were terrible terrible media spokemen of Jonathan! Created unnecessary despise for that man.

      @Bruno Fierce….Please don’t blame the man for seeing Nigeria as one. GEJ did the right thing by trying to be the president of all Nigerians.

      I guess you did not get the memo. APC is an Hausa/Fulani/Yoruba party and they will continue to join hands to exclude Igbos and ethnic minorities in Nigeria.

      Ao, forever saying BS!
      Come on! Don’t start this tribal nonsense.

    • Nkechi

      June 1, 2015 at 12:53 pm

      Just 3 people so far, and you’re saying all you see are Hausa and Yoruba? I can see that some of you like drama.

    • ao

      June 1, 2015 at 6:44 pm

      Nkechi or whatever you call yourself, clearly YOU did not get the memo. Most parties in Nigeria are organized along ethnic lines. The transitional team that Buhari organized were mostly Yoruba and Hausa. It is what it is.

    Sad that he has started duplicating offices with the appointment of a special adviser as well as senior special adviser (both of media and publicity) this early…talk about government bureaucracy and it’ll sound familiar.

      You have a point, what’s the point in appointing a Special Adviser and then appointing a Senior Special adviser. Why really why?

    June 1, 2015 at 4:25 am

    Hey Mr president, make sure you do not leave out any Hausa politician in all your appointments ok. They are the smartest and brightest to lead the country to the promised land. That’s the change we need (Aboki nama)

    My own is that GMB should fulfilled his promise, because all eyes is on him.

    Somebody kept saying pray for him even when he has said and done ” i will make the nation ungovernable” and ever since then the nation was so ungovernable for bros. now somebody want to govern the same nation….. SOME INDIVIDUALS ARE FOOLS. HE HAS GIVEN MY BROS “SPECIAL” AND THEN GAVE HIS BROS “SENIOR SPECIAL” WHERE IS THIS COMING FROM, 1ST TIME TO HAVE THIS TITLE. FRIENDS BE WISE!!!!

    I can see people in here are still sounding like the old Nigerians, this is change. We need to stop being trballistic and allow the man appoint the people he is sure will help him deliver his promises to Nigeria, whether they are all Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba or Ijaw. As long as they are Nigerians, they are all qualified.

    Fellow Nigerians,
    The task ahead of us is that of unity and nation building. Whoever it is that is leading this course does not matter; what matters is the RESULT. Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, Tiv, Ijaw or Kataf, let Buhari appoint who he wants. Ours is the results of the appointments. It’s too early to start crying foul if we really mean well for Nigeria
