    I guess the fourth person in white is Dogara. He’s quite a dishy young man.

    Previously, we would have seen the First Lady striving for space somewhere. A toned down ceremony, even the cake is small.

    Uh, see Dr Alex Ekwueme. A great Nigerian.

    Our VP, copying Ihedioha’s everyday colour of cap. LOL!

      If I may ask what is wrong with seeing a first lady?
      Besides why will buhari brandish his first lady when after 120 days a president who contested for over 20 decade has not assembled his economic team?
      Please save your hot air nothing is wrong with first lady for a man who has a clear head!!!
      It’s even better for buhari and Osibajo to hide till they remember that they are crashing a thriving Economy handed to them with a growth of 6% and now it’s 2.3%.

      @nene+:Hi dear, may God keep us & bless our days ahead. I sure will remind u of this very comment in the nearest future.
      Nigeria has been struggling with many challenges for years now…before Obasanjo civilian administration, before Jonathan and now Buhari civillian administration…if surely all has not been well for a very long time before Jonathan came to power yet Jonathan despite the very very rocky entrance he had into becoming no 1 citizen (PhD holder ooo!) could afford to squander several billions of naira on events that Buhari decided to spend less than an 100 million naira, and all you can say is that Buhari has no clear head…then I fear for the future of my beloved country with the likes of you every where…
      I casted no vote for the APC…But i feel we need to exercise caution & restraint at some point when we speak/write…because you do not fancy the man and the party that brought him into power doesn’t mean you have to run down every of his plan/ agenda and the method he chooses to employ in the discharge of his duties?
      He has explained the reason why he took his time in announcing his cabinet members… can’t you grasp any sense in that at all??? With how Nigeria has been messed up? So you really think Buhari has no sense? Really?
      My dear it should not be business as usual if we want a change/progress…
      You don’t acquire a piece of land and then expect to build one day…He had a plan before he came into power..but he says he received handover notes from the past administration very late and needed to do proper checks/analysis before bringing in the ministers…now dear,what is so odd & bitter to swallow here??
      One thing I know for a fact is that after years of Jonathan administration we know as a Nation,we haven’t moved ahead at all (except of cause in Entertainment!)
      We need to be very careful,disciplined and patriotic here if really we want progress in Nigeria.
      To those who really will be sincere to themselves they will admit that something unusual & mighty is already happening regarding the affairs of our country Nigeria.
      God bless Nigeria!

      nene+, Absolutely nothing.
      In fact, it’s 2015, our women, who are equally witty, if not wiser, should be seen and heard, at least, the elderly ones, who are matured, very educated, with good work experiences and done raising kids.
      Let no one convince you other wise because this country is messed up, mostly by men not women.
      Women have paid their dues. We have a lot to contribute. Stop the hiding.

      @nene+ those who know, know. Not really interested in the bunch of sychophants on BN. Very soon they will attribute the air they breath to Buhari. Mtscheeeeeeeeeeeew.

      With this gov’, everything is propaganda. That the wives are not there means nothing. Nigerians can be gullible. Where the wives not in NY? Since we like using America as the yardstick (l don’t think we should ) Has anyone ever seen Obama at such an auspicious occasion without Michelle? Nonsense.

      By the way, whoever wrote that drivel Buhari read out yesterday ought to be flogged in a market square. You are unable to appoint Ministers, it is the immediate past govt’s fault? Really? Buhari is learning that he alone cannot “rule” . All this gragra Na wash. In NY, he said the delay was Becos, he was talking to the Gov’s about the nominees. Overnight, it is the fault of the immediate past govt. Old man telling lies. Did he not say he did not require the Gov’s imput to the list as the constitution does not mandate him to????? Have we forgotten so soon that he said so???How come he was talking to the Gov’s.??

      If only bobo dullard will do his job for which he is more than adequately compensated than all this propaganda.

      @ JK thanks for your advise even tho I don’t need it.
      What part of my submission is false?
      That the Economy has been crippled and has no direction since Buhari?
      That the GDP is ok?
      That JP Morgan has not delisted us?
      That we do not have ministers up til now?
      That much more Nigerians are now jobless than he met?
      That his entrance is not greeted with mass sack, pay cuts, and wind down of companies????
      Abeg Abeg Abeg thank you tho.
