    The Nigerian ministerial screening is the biggest joke ever, more like a circus…. The damn screeners need to be screened themselves..

      Hehehehe…. During jonathan’s era, how many albert enstein-like questions did you see, to expect something different during Buhari’s era? You probably did not even follow it as much as you are now.

      Besides those screening are those whom you voted for and are representing you.

      In other news, Amaechi has been cleared…Hurray!!!!! Finally our ministerial portfolio taking shape. We just hope they’ll serve the country and help make Nigeria great again.

    Ewwwooo… Sen. Akpabio has played PDP wayo oh! I just don’t get it. It makes no sense.
    Amaechi has a huge fan base oh.
    Thses senators are so annoying with their kind of kindergarten questions, please they can do better. I want the nominees to be challenged intellectually.
    And why was that senator with the ‘ministers and portfolios’ question doing fine boy,licking his lips?

    Guess Saraki won’t be found guilty then. We know how these things work but then Nigeria loses. A lost cause. I’m just tired. Electricity that they used to dazzle us has reduced drastically. Abi was that a mirage? The constant power that we had for some weeks I mean? I’m tired and you can feel it in my post.

      Mabel dont be We you me and all BN commenters need to demand more. We need to be more involved. Not contesting or participating in elections but letting our voice count. The Senators from your state did you vote for them?? did you even know them?? the president cant fix what happens in Oredo Local Government of my state. My State Governor Local Government Chairman and Councillors can but if they are are the wrong set of people(and they probably are) should be held accountable. Dont be tired yet

    You guys know I try to be objective, so you its serious when I’m totally against a nominee. Claudius Daramola must not be made minister.

    A. He was dull.

    B. Was he actually suggesting University scholars be subjected to manual labour?? WTF is this Mao’s China!!!

    C. Lets’s be honest the guy was suggesting Communist reforms to education. He was a step away from suggesting dissenting voices be sent to the countryside for reeducation.

    Jesu mi! Buhari was trolling with that nomination.

    Please person about to agree with his suggestions, I’m not in the mood.

      OMG! thanks datling. My exact sentiment. It’d be a joke if he becomes minister of education. So incoherent! sigh. Naija! which way? they all seem like dullards, I’m sorry to say.

    Amaechi wasn’t as bad as I thought he would be and the nominees so far have been going against my caffeinated brain and winning!! Boring so far.

    Local government autonomy……….I dislike you already Baba!

    @Charles you have simply clarified that Buhari brings no change!!!!

    Thank for your sincerity.

    As for Jonathan and PDP they brought class – compare and find out APC minsters are a demotion from PDP.
    Akinwunmi Adesina vs Audu Ogbe
    Ngozi Iweala vs Kemi Adeosun
    Omobolaji Johnson vs ????
    Aminu Wali vs Lair Muhammed
    Bath Nnaji and Chinedu Nebo vs clowns
    Osita Chidoka vs clown listed
    Deziani vs Buhari
    Mike Onolemenmen vs Amaechi
    Olusegun Aganga vs ???
    Dr Chukwu Health v ???

    Aside Okey Enelama, Fashola,Kachikwu and a few others who else is first class minister that we spent ??

    These ministerial list is a compensation list rewarding loyal pest from CPC, ANPP and relatives.

    Is the man from Ondo not too old to be running around???

    Hmmmm, my dear nation, God will help us.
    Amaechi/APC had to pay supporters to chant “we don win”? Was there an election?
    Not that I was expecting them to deny him but it was not worth the delays,them for don screen am with Lai Mohammed last week. Those who said NAY were more than the Yays for Lai Mohammed but the APC strategy of putting Saraki on a hot seat with his case worked for them.
    Let’s see how it all turns out.
    @Sir Daramola, graduates should go back to entrepreneurial school and be employers of labour? Sir, we are doing that already(without the govt.). Are you going to upgrade the University of Education back ? naim be the question. Again, as a matter of protocol between the senate president and a state governor, who has more power? you nor answer. You just come talk wetin dey your mind without answering questions asked. Your representation of the old generation was very much felt.

    Definition of Corruption according to Amaechi:- I cannot define corruption. I ahve never taken bribe in my life. If someone brings a girl for you to sleep with because they want a contract for you,that is corruption. Your son doesn’t qualify for a position and you bring him to be given such placement, that is corruption…..

  13. Thank God.

    Ocholi James: that is the kind of screening and the kind of candidate, that level and quality,and even better, is the type we need to see. His speech is clear, well-enunciated, grammatically correct, and at a good pace, not slow and pedantic. His answers are intelligent, knowledgeable, passionate, it is clear he’s speaking sincerely and on issues on which he is passionate and has long had on his heart and given thought to, not that he’s trying to find answers on the spot to the questions and/or say what he thinks the senators want to hear, or to find something to say that will disguise his lack of competence and escape with the barest minimum of an answer; his answers are concise, not rambling, long-drawn out, he never once resorted to attempts at humour and jocularity to escape nitty-gritty of what he was asked, he attacked and answered, IN DETAIL, every question asked, to the core, and sometimes even brought up and highlighted and proffered solutions to ancillary issues, and he gave his own views and also proffered solutions to all questions, instead of just re-asking the question by rephrasiing it and giving that as his answer or baldly giving a shallow, casual personal opinion and passing the buck to something or someone else as their responsibility not his. All these contrasts to his own presentation which is what we saw, in various degrees, in all others screened before him. I have chosen not to cricticise anyone, though I agree with some other commenters who have already pointed out glaring deficiencies in certain others, whom I also am of the view should not be confirmed as ministers , I have left everything in God’s Almighty Hands, however, when someone has done equitably well and shone like as a bright star incomparable in the darkness, such a one should be well-commended. I am looking up to God for even higher and better, even incomparably, more than this.

    • Are we there yet?

      October 22, 2015 at 4:23 pm

      Wat the fooorrkkk did u just write???? Smh!!!

    This ex governors are self centre, why did they put their children or friends into the parliament rather than coursing problems in this country. This is the unrest crises Pope has said about Nigeria, we should think very well.
