Kindly share this post..., much love, thanks!

Finally, the ministerial list is out and the president of Nigeria~ Muhammadu Buhari indeed considered a lot of things. From, this list, I can boldly say the president truly has listening ears.

So, Fashola was stripped off the “Minister of Power” post and was assigned the “Minister of Works and Housing” responsibility alone. If you can recall, the former Governor of Lagos State was handling the two ministerial posts which was quite cumbersome for him. Nigerians even complained and said he did poorly in the power sector.

Now, the president after removing Fashola as the “minister of power” and leaving him only with the “minister of housing and works” responsibility, some Nigerians are still complaining. They were really complaining about this and asking why Fashola was removed. I am like “Ah ah! What exactly

do my Nigerian people want?”

Kilode? Ogini? Menene (What?) What happened na? I mean, the last four years that Fashola handled the two posts, they insulted Fashola and even the president saying it was wrong to give two posts to one person. They also said the responsibilities were too much for one person to handle. Perhaps, these and more was what the returning president considered in people’s complains that he decided to strip Fashola off one of the ministerial posts leaving him only with one.

Can you just imagine that after the president did this, these same Nigerians again complained about the president’s decision to strip him off one of the posts. Mtchew, some people are not okay rara.

Ehen, back to the new ministerial lists and the state that got posts jare. So I searched and searched, looking for the State that was omitted, but there was none o. All the 36 states in Nigeria were included, just that some states like Anambra, Bauchi, Kaduna, Kano, Kwara and Lagos got two portfolios bringing in total 43 ministers and posts.

Including all states shows that the President again listened to the complains of Nigerians and indeed has the best interest of the country at heart. If you recall, 4 years ago, Nigerians criticized the President saying that he only gave northerners ministerial post.
