    What about his other 700 aides being paid by nigerian taxpayers

    What a waste of academic qualification. Spent large sums of money in college fees and expenses to collect these degrees, but only to end up as a glorified secretary to some rogue politician. It would seem that Baba Ahmed 61 years old, can’t find something worthwhile to do with his life despite being a serial collector of academic qualifications. What a waste!

      Look at this mumu. Who do you want the Senate President to pick? Someone who is not highly educated, so we can continue in retrogression. The position of Chief of Staff to Senate President requires someone who can think intellectually. You are being a typical Nigerian—criticizing everything for the sake of criticizing and recording your presence this morning on the internet.
