    One would expect an Okey Ndibe to at lease understand the process of selecting ministers and the required sanction by the NASS, why is 1 month too long for that. If EFCC/ICPC had been going around picking up all the looters we all know now, i’m sure this same Okey will come up here to write about Buhari not focusing on good governance but witch-hunting. What does these ministers you are so obsessed with, know about their ministries? Isn’t it the PS that really know the ins-and-out of these ministries? It is too early to start these baseless criticisms.

      You sound so dumb. Here is a man who threatened bloodshed if he lost the election, yet after 3 months he is unprepared to rule giving one lame excuse after another. One would expect him to unveil his plans and start doing something before the world discounts him. Are we going to wait forever before he starts doing something good or bad? Haba

    These folks are the worst regime take-off I have ever seen in the entire world. Dictator Buhari & hide-and-seek Osibanjo have refused to declare their assets publicly till further notice to enable them sell enough crude oil to buffer their assets; Now DICTATOR Buhari enjoys running Nigeria in his kitchen; he is the president and oil minister in one; no ministers, nobody directing agencies, 2 special assistants on Media (NOW THAT MUST BE CHANGEE!) both blowing LIES from one side each of their two mouths implying two mouths in ONE. Thiefnubu is angry at Buhari and Buhari does not give a damn, Lying Mohammed is dazed, encouraged to resign for incompetency and no one gives a damn; nPDP took over NASS, CPC took over presidency, ACN took over vice-presidency, ANPP/APGA are becoming impatient, incompetent APC governors who have led their states into a state of bankruptcy with debts and non-payment of workers’ salary now want poor Nigerians to bail them out for they are too new to CHANGE; YARIBA SLAVES are becoming demoralized as their Islamists’ masters are reneging on the bountiful promises made before the elections; Old PDP is looking at all of the unfolding drama saying WE TOLD U SO; Boko Haram is rejoicing that their man has taken over Aso Rock so they resort to killing more innocent Nigerians because that is the only way Bokos know how to rejoice; sensing being left out in the evolving all-progressive-come-and-chop dispensation even the USA has joined the chorus by promising $5m to MNJTF, because they still do not trust Nigerians with money, and also to help recover looted money even though they did nothing to discourage our looted monies being lodged in Western banks since 1970; BRITAIN now partakes in running our presidency, vice-presidency, NASS, military; BRITISH and neo-colonialist NGOS & news organizations like Amnesty International, Reuters AFP, BBC are targeting individuals/ethnic groups/institutions in Nigeria that could question their clandestine activity; clearly, lo and behold, Nigeria has been thrown to VULTURES, FOXES, PRINCIPALITIES, and WILD ANIMALS.

    I am not a politician, neither was my father. But I remember telling Nigerians that 1) Buhari was only pushing for power and not leadership. 2) That 1983 and 2015 are several years far apart; things are not the same again. 3) That during Buhari’s term as head of State, it was Idiagbon, not Buhari that ruled this country. Idiagbon was sick of this country till his death, but Buhari sold out. 4) Nigerians are to quick either to forget of to forgive. The man truncated democracy and later fought for democratically elected presidency and we sang his praise. 5) I told Nigerians that 6 months would be to long to start complaining etc. Fellow Nigerians, since many of us were wooed into what we now have without asking the right questions then, why not we forget and continue watching. If worst comes, we will give our new president a second term.

    Educating as usual. I am am avid reader of your column but on this one bros, i no agree with you. The whole story stems out of conjecture amd a prepared mind set. Bros , I know you spemd your time in the US so you can not be in a position to tell us what we have experienced here in the past 16 years. Buhari has told the world that his ministers will be announced this month and we are here already, so why pre-empt or be prejudicial about it. Bros, I will always enjoy your writing but try to be very objective amd find out the mindset of we ordinary folk before you put pen to paper. We maymnot be academically or professionally competent to vet your article but as your followers we have the write to advise you where we think you are in error,like today. UNLESS TOU WANT US TO TREAT YOUR ARTICLES AS POLITICS!

    For the other parochial characters amd tribal bigots who have left comments, soery I will not dignify you with banters. Hold your views and wallow in your anger. I am a full Nigerian and will always remain so no matter who is in government. I will also be the first to objectively and openly criticise who ever is doing wrong no matter the level cos I do not intend to be a refugee for anybody’s sake.
