  • Do we need to list WHAT STATE people come from? This is so archaic!
    Even in Ghana, people don't brag if they are from Kumasi, Accra or Tamale.
    Ethnicity never made anyone better or worse.

  • This is a complete duplication of potfolio. This government is ready to take hardship to the next level. 85% of Nigerians at the grassroots are going to suffer too the next level. Out of 200 million Nigerians, nobody can be president except Atiku and illiterate pmb. Again we are going to suffer from this fraudulent elections that brought illiterate in government

  • This is complete waste of resources! How can we have 43 Ministers instead of 37. 43 people will be embezzling money all in the name of Minister How many federal Ministries do we have? PMB will say Petroleum Ministry is under him. Why can’t he place security and defense under him too?. What do you know about natural resources? Your first 4 years you placed it under yourself, there was corruption in NNPC where the group Managing Director was giving out contract worth billions of dollars without passing through the board. You heard of it, but you did nothing to it.
