    Not surprised though. But if only the appointed can prove he deserves the office. Why not?
    I have no problem with whomever gets a particular officer rather my concerns lies with the functionality of such offices to the growth of our country

    BN, you have finally alienated your commenters with your overzealous moderation. I remember a time when I visited this blog just for the comments. I will see news elsewhere and come to read it on BN just to know what your readers thought, I even told my colleagues then about how much i love and learn from BN commenters. Now, it’s all gone, empty, and you are still moderating. Continue!

    Whoever is running BN must be related to BUHARI. The person has succeeded in ruining this blog, just as PMB has succeeded in ruining our economy. What bafflles me is how unperturbed they are about this development.

    I dey wonder oh! Now, every single comment is moderated. A ba la jo! I noticed there are hardly ever any comments anymore. Ahn-ahn, someone will say something that is not insulting, they won’t post it, you will have to go back to tell them to post it for them to do so. Ki lo de? This moderator, na you biko oh! E be like say your ijoba (regime) is serious.

    Please, BN, the whole point of you having on online magazine is to encourage dialogue isn’t it? I have read some of the funniest comments ever on this site. People making me laugh when I am down, me contributing my thoughts/opinion/advice, etc. and learning so much from others. This new system nor go work oh! Please reevaluate. Buhari nor fit close down your site because the people are exercising their democratic freedom! His son-in-law is given a big post… Okay, are we not allowed to talk about it? Nor be you bring the news to us in the first place? Biko, change this tin oh! E nor go werk!

    PS**Please publish my post oh!
