      Buhari, you are one of the major cause of the problem. Infact, these northerners and middle belt ruined naija. Theyve ruled far to long, and nothing good to show for it. Oh, more money to their pocket. And they will be doing stupid humility up and down. All they know how to do is to be patriotic to their d*mn selves yet we keep allowing them to destroy that country. Mr anti corruption, you are hanging out with the main devils from Abacha’s family, IBB to Amaechi. But arresting the underdogs. Recycling the same useless officials.
      I give u small credit, at least you are even trying to scare off these criminals that sucked the country dry away.
      At this point, Nigerians have shown themselves to be incompetent of governing their country. Move aside, let the white man show you how it’s done. it’s colonization all over again but it’s better than seeing a country with so much go down the sewage in front of your eyes.

    I see Lai Muhammed! His mouth here looks a little bit twisted!
    Ngige and accessory. Bread and butter.

    Congrats all!!!!

      Hope yours won’t get twisted at the rate you police APC up and down.

    It does not look like they will be tackling serious issues. It is like a cultural affair, but this time babaringa dominates, not bowler hats, only one. This isn’t looking good. I hope the president declares a state of emergency in all sectors of the economy. Not much can be achieved in 3 1/2 years. So much to do so little time. Boko Haram, now Biafra, and very soon it would be APC , Ogoni or Niger Delta. They still can afford to live in a bubble, unfortunately the world has moved on. Climate change means fossil fuels will be faced out in coming years, and less revenue to take care of Naija citizens.

      She is a fierce northern woman. She can manage the two portfolios unlike you southerners.

    Now to Rotimi Amaechi, Those laughing at Amaechi’s assigned transport portfolio are just plain ignorant. This is a very strategic ministry by President Buhari to entrust Amaechi with a very key ministry overseeing economic money spinners like NPA,FAAN, NRC, NIMASA and now NCAA. With the new addition of the hitherto aviation ministry to his portfolio,Amaechi is effectively in charge of all access and exit points to the country. All those fat cats with private jets who are laughing now will soon have realize it’s no laughing matter.
    But then, Amaechi has got work to do. Remember all those fake trains GEJ bought? I rest my case….
    I just hope to see the change we voted for.

      @ Chris, you didn’t mention Amaechi’s monorail. Na 10 fingers go point am if he points a finger @ GEJ’s train(s).

    • fleur

      November 12, 2015 at 1:09 am

      Well the monorail never took off. So we can expect a grander scale project nationally. Maybe position some of them in the extreme regions of the north so that no one will notice. Anthony Ukpo can be the Engineer premiere for all these transportation tinz. Ex-military so its aight. They never do any harm.

      @Chris, “fake trains that GEJ bought”? Obviously you have never been to PH to see the fake monorial that Amaechi built! Anyway, dude can now hopefully save us from the disgrace of having the World’s Worst Airport in PH.

    @missy if she wins at the tribunal then she will step down as minister and be the governor of taraba state guys try not to be negative and allow them to work and closely review thier progress God bless Nigeria

    Thanks Chris for educating those laughing at Amechi’s position.

      @Benson, exactly! What’s truly laughable is using terms like “money spinners” in a supposedly anti-corruption administration…

    @ Fleur its because of ethnic bigots like you that Nigeria is the way it is. Just imagine that silly first comment of yours!!! FYI ignoramus that you are . A minister and a governor have 2 separate functions under the constitution so with the best will in the world. Ms. Al-Hassan cannot be Minister and Governor of Taraba State at the same time. Like someone rightly pointed out, she will have to resign as minster and take up her people’s mandate
    And to all you pessimists lets give the new cabinet a chance and appraise them come 2018 November. I wish all them well in their new assignments.

    …I searched for Prof Adewole tire. Finally saw him peeping from the back..beht why? Why go start at the back when you are vertically challenged? Wishing all the ministers strength to perform their duties perfectly. .
