    Aboki petroleum, petroleum…Lord deliver your people

  • Okokondem

    What is the criteria for these and other such federal government appointments? Is it based on qualifications, selection of the most capable, most qualified to lead our country out of the dire situation it is currently in or is it done to satisfy some morbid preoccupation with “having my people there” syndrome.

    • Abdulrahman Abdulyekeen

      These are political appointments that don’t require appointees to be rocket scientists.

  • Folahan

    So northerners again will get petroleum, these guy think they are smart. They gave un-relevant agencies to southerners and took all the potential high revenue agencies for themselves. I am not a tribal bigot but these guy are taking a lot of us for fools and i dont buy into the crap that they are selling.

    • ibrex

      Then u can as well move to biafra with Nnamdi

      • Katsayal

        That Folahan for you Mr. President!

      • Alhaji

        So, you are pleased with Buhari’s appointments?

  • 678

    Are my eyes deceiving me? I don’t see any appointment from the South West? Oh no, we’ve born fooled and deceived as Obama fooled and deceived America for eight years.

    Wao, we are all done for.
    If too much liberty is accorded to a slave, he will behave like a son. But we the southerners caused it. The Northerners cause infighting between us the Southerners and they – the Northerners are stepping on our heads without any issue.

    • Abdulrahman Abdulyekeen

      Then you are either blind or mischievous or even both.

    • Alhaji

      I warned you in 2015 when you were sending texts over the world that you had found your redeemer. Gambari is Gambari. Only fools trust them. Do you remember what they did to Awolowo?



    They first listed the names of Southerners who really got peanuts …. then they listed the names of the Northern Muslim
    Hausa-Fulani who got the real things

    1. Alhaji Mamman Amadu – Director-General, Bureau of Public Procurement

    2. Alhaji Ahmed Bobboi – Executive Secretary, Petroleum Equalization Fund

    3. Dr Bello Gusau – Executive Secretary, Petroleum Technology Development Fund

    4. Usman Abubakar – Chairman, Nigeria Railway Corporation.

    5. Dr Isa Ibrahim – Director-General, National Information Technology Development Agency

    6. Sa’adiya Faruq – Federal Commissioner, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally Displaced Persons

    7. Hajiya Yewande Sadiku – Executive Secretary, National Investment Promotion Commission.

      Na wah for you, my friend, you’re stuck in the past. In 21st Nigeria, you’re still talking of tribes, ethnic groups and religion when others elsewhere are breaching new frontiers in science and technology.

      GEJ is history, a very bad one at that. Just deal with it! When he was President, you had thugs, outlaws, rogues, illiterates or quasi-illiterates like Tompolo and the ex-boss at NIMASA running our national affairs. This is no longer the case, which definitely is progress.

      Even so, Yewande Sadiku is Hausa-Fulani name? Not everybody with a Muslim name is Hausa-Fulani. There are many Hausa-Fulani Christians in States like Kano, Katsina, Kaduna, Kebbi and Zamfara bearing Muslim names — like the famous columnist on this very newspaper — Professor Jibrin Ibrahim from Kano.

      Sir, if I were you, I would take advantage of the amnesty programme and go back to school.



    It is instructive to note that all the key appointments … 7 in number … all went to the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani without

    Nevertheless, 10 of the 13 appointments went to the North.

    I hope Bola Tinubu will call for the resignation of Buhari just the same way he is calling for the resignation of John Odigie Oyegun.

    • Alhaji

      Bola Thieftinubu cannot call for resignation of Buhari because if he does that, Buhari will finish him. Tinubu is not clean, and if he tries bitter leave, Buhari will put hot pepper in his ass that will finish him. Ask Olisa Metuh to tell you story. He who lives in the glass house cannot throw stones. Tinubu is full of garbage.

    • Abate Dokpu

      Why don’t you check the list again? The south sounding names appear to be 7, Akokundo Gloria, Yewande Sadiku, Umana Umana, Sharon Ikeazor, Aboloma Anthony, Joseph Ari, and Simbi Wabote. Yewande Sadiku appears to be Yoruba but I agree could be from Kogi or Kwara.

      • victoria

        @Abate Dokpu.Don’t bother yourself about the comments of some tribal bigots here.they are all chunk of jobless ranting on various websites. especially this who called himself GEJ forever , and others. I don’t read their comments again.

  • Ikem

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. We are used to this gworo man from Daura but my south West brothers nko. Chaii. One chance chanji.

  • Babrutus

    Wow. This means there are now fewer places to chop money from.

  • Moses Moses

    just one person from NIGER-DELTA, GEJ you see am so, you just lost our chance of making big politicians

    • Peter_Edo

      pray tell, who is the person from Niger Delta?

      • Moses Moses

        Mr Okon Umana as the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Oil and Gas Free Trade Zone Authority, Onne, Rivers State

        • Peter_Edo

          hehe, that was a rhetorical question!

  • Chike

    Just as lucky dube sang,” And sometimes I cry, and it’s not b’cos of there failure to deliver but b’cos of “the trust sold out”, oh that is why I cry. HA IFE EMEHHH…

  • Egbu Yugo

  • azarbazan

I wonder time of GEJ dump northerner and heap all the appointment to the Igbo’s, no body is commenting among you, actually you are selfish and. Playing barbarian life style not thinking corrolarry giving to you against the north.
