Aug. 21, 2019
A cross-section of Nigerians has reacted to the portfolios assigned to the 43 ministers by President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday.
DAILY POST had reported that President Buhari on Wednesday swore-in and assigned portfolios to his 43 ministers at the Presidential Villa.
He charged his new ministers to work towards ensuring better Nigeria and a country which the citizens would be proud of.
The newly-appointed ministers and the portfolios assigned them generated reactions from Nigerians.
While some Nigerians commended Buhari for the creation of more portfolios, others queried the job handed some of the cabinet members.
Below are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:
@Drugzy6 “Everybody in the incoming cabinet are degree holders yet the person appointing them is still struggling to tell us who owns the WAEC results of many colors he presented to become President. Nigeria don suffer sha!
@Hoyebeecee “The struggle continues for ASUU, NLC and Co… Ngige is back.”
@BennyUmoren “Congrats to our own bro, Sen.Godswill Akpabio.minister of Niger Delta fits you perfectly.”
@Seedolf “Why not Ministry of Trade and Investment for Samson Ogah and Ministry of Work for Rauf Aregbesola?
@Emmylexx “Timpere Silvia – State Petroleum, Gosh I don’t like this appointment, this man is no way better than Ibe in any way.”
@A_Archimedes “I think with Rauf Aregbesola heading the interior Ministry, NSCDC and Other Para Military Forces should have a Facelift.”
@Alexiza “I love the split and creation of more ministries, Police affairs especially. Good move Mr. President.”I hope his second term is more fruitful.”
@Eldershab “Adamu Adamu returning as Minister of education shows a significant sign of a stagnant administration.”
@Iamotj “Adamu Adamu returns as Minister of Education. Our educational system just dey start him wahala.”
@Wabbillionaire “Chris Ngige and Lai Muhammad have been reassigned as the Minister of Labour and Minister of Information respectively BuhariCabinet This is a joke!
@ “Sunday dare ‘minister of youth and sports’ Hopefully, he will perform well than Solomon Dalung…..Adeniyi Adebayo- minister for trade, industry, and investment, Rauf Aregbesola – Minister for interior. Hmmmmm, let’s hope this will bring good things this time.”
@Adeogunniyi”What a joke Aregbesola refused to swearing-in with Qur’an or Bible.”
@Iamakaraboy “I don’t know why they still use the Bible and Quran during swearing-in. They should use Amadioha or Sango. The speech should be something like ‘If I steal any money, Let thunder strike me dead at once’
@Mailoya “All I see is square pegs in a round hole in Buhari’s Cabinet, Keyamo will see his portfolio as “come n chop”.”
