@Esteembehemoth: Lol.. Wike and Jide kosoko make BAT ministerial list. 😂😂 Chaiii, Nigeria is gone gone. 😂.
@drpepple_: Same old and familiar names being recycled. All renewed hope dashed.
@IAkaluka: If this is true, I weep. Wiki, minister for Police affair Andy Uba for special duties, I laugh 🤣🤣 What’s Elrufai, Nnamani, Elechi, Oshomole and Ganduje with some just ex governor’s doing in this list. For me it’s just paying back loyalty.
@laolu7: There is no way Jay Jay and Jide Kosoko would make this list. Not because they aren’t qualified but because they aren’t politicians.
@7footre: Populated majorly by politicians. Is this how we’ll drive the needed change? Well, let’s wait for official list.
@MaaziChidi: All I can say is that either this list was leaked distractions or whatever but you see that Martin Elechi for Ebonyi ? I’m tempted to call the entire list fake but then that’ll be unfair but that can’t happen again.
@Obedng: Elrufai the fanatic as an interior Minister means that other religions will be targeted. I think it’s a fake list anyway.
@Declassicoo: If this list was true. While some states got two ministerial appointments, there is no person from Kwara state that made it to the list.
@jamescassidy8: I laughed when I saw Jide Kosoko. I’ld love to see him or any of the veterans in such a position.
@B_akwaugo: and @OnyedikaAnambra This list had better be a joke! Wike minister of police? Haa! God abeg oh.
@AltarOnFire: Jide kosoko…. whaoo Mins. Tourism, Culture & Arts… Mins. Budget & Planning. Abike Dabri.
