      Na wah for Waya road. Aboki must show his hands. The Agenda unfolds. Nobi Buhari? A leopard can never change its spots. Buhari, the tribalist. Appoint northerners into all key positions while we all line up behind the North. All of a sudden, only Northerners are qualified to fill key positions in the National Oil coy. My friend once had an encounter with a young geologist who was teaching in Bornu. Asked why she did not apply to any oil coy? She said “We believe Shell,, Chevron belong to you southerners. While NNPC is ours. I am waiting for NNPC to advertise” When l read silly comments here about people who do not understand the Northern agenda/ Buhari politics, l just get pissed.

      If the oil wells were in the North, will southerners dare go there to look for contracts or seek employment? Not to talk of being appointed into key positions. Go to NNPC anywhere in Nigeria on a good day, you will think you are in Maiduguri. Babanriga and kaftan wearing men loitering all over the place. This is how it started. Who own the majority of the Oil wells in Nigeria? Monkey dey work, baboons dey chop.

      While Buhari systemically implements the Northern Agenda, stupid southerners chant “Sai Buhari” on their knees worshipping.

    He’s actually one of the few reformers in NNPC who understands the best practice required to transform NNPC to become like Statoil of Norway, Petrobras of Brazil and other well-peforming national oil companies. He was in the commitee to reposition the oil and gas sector before Diezani became minister and showed his balance and desire for national development. It is a meritous appointment. I have no doubt that he will reform NNPC crude oil sales to align with international best practice. and no, I am not from the North

    So of all the appointments that was made in NNPC in the past few days, this was the only one you could single out. And no, I’m not a Northerner. Please don’t destroy the Country with tribal sentiments.

    I don’t give a damn if all the appointment comes from the North, all I want is a Nigeria I can proudly call mine. mind you, I’m from the west and enough of all this ethic nonsense

      People need to get over this o! Get over it! It’s so painful when I hear moaning and lamentation about the Northern agenda when appointments are made, and less than half belong to the North. Will he not appoint any Northerner for fear of being colored tribalist?
      Our problems have exceeded caring about which region reformers come from. Biko, let him work. Only small minded, non-patriotic Nigerians whine about regions at this point.

    I have worked with Mallam Kyeri as a consultant and I must tell you that he is a very capable die hard nationalist. He is also passionate about organizational change.

    He is highly experienced and qualified for this role.

    I really don’t mind if the ministers are all northerners as long as they work on behalf of all of us.
    What is really worrying is the fact that Northerners are given advantages to go to school because they are under educated. You would think that those that are educationally advantaged will get the best jobs, right?
    It is not fair that you are educationally disadvantaged, getting into university with low scores and at the same time getting all the jobs in town.
    This goes to show that all of us should be admitted into schools with the same criteria or if your area is disadvantaged, leave the high positions for people who are super intelligent and we’re super tasked in school.
    Quota System Should Be scraped in our public service, or we should follow it at all times.
    Clauses/ polices that military north, who was majority and who ruled Nigeria for years, used to put the south in check, while controlling our oil money. Time to review these policies. Do you really blame people when they are complaining that Buhari is not following quota system? The same system they created.
    Let’s be FAIR.
