good 1, have always known nemesis will catch up with these Bolaji Abdullahi guy, he is so corrupt and stupid, his corrupt practices and the punishment and wickedness bestowed on corpers as minister for youth which was covered up by transferring him to ministry of sport will never be buried except he is been punished. this is just the beginning for him. Ole, Ole, Atole!

Well, it is the prerogative of Mr. President to appoint his ministers subject to ratification by the senate, what struck me really was that of the police affairs. A strategic move towards August election you might say considering the rumor that name bros Oy in nominate the man against the wishes of other PDP people. My prayer is that we all live to tell the story after the election in August. Aje Ke Lana, omo Ku loni.... Inferring from the bomb scare in one of the banks in osogbo yesterday.

details please said...

How does the government work in Nigeria? Is there any confirmation/vetting process for the bringing in new cabinet members? What policies and procedures are in place for check and balances?? This country seems to run by the fly of the seat of pants. Its like anything goes. Btw..why is there a ministry dedicated to sports??? Clearly a waste of resources which can be allotted to more beneficial things.
