  12. Okah ebiwari

    Even as you have being put in that executive position do not see it as a means of acquiring more wealth, you must price intensity more than extensity, you most use your position as a means of recreating the country and try to epitomize the good leadership qualities in you because if you dont, the leaders sin is the leading sin and finally try to look more on our educatiional sector where the rate of exam malpractice has increased and also the power sector, transport, employment and the economic sector with these i think your leadership is will be a good follow up with the growing leaders. I wish you all best of luck in your various positions. Thanks

  13. onyinye

  15. haviz tony

    we nigerian, we dedicated to represent our interest but it was very unfortunate for nigerians dt we realy disappointed in u so try to make correction. God bless nigeria.

  16. BOBRASH

    How many ministers are there in this country? This folks are just breaking this post to appoint unnecessary positions. deceive yourselves not we.

  17. Chinenye Maryann

    There is too much waste in this country. The current expenditure is far greater than the capital expenditure, the cost of govt in Nigeria is too high, please, the govt should cut down the cost of governing to ensure effective and efficient govt.

  18. Solomon Simon A

    Subsidy is not the problem we have, but corruption, we need to cut down the amount of money allocated to these ministers, and make a very comprehensive check on all the projects done. I recently reviewed the budget of a ministry for 4 years and a particular project appeared 3 times out of 4 years.

  19. taiwo

    As I pace through history’s isle, as I nest on a hill’s peak prone to be higher than an eagle’s reach, as dream-cum-aspiration to serve a people gleam achingly within my heart; but all have become mere mirage not potent of being half real as shadows.

    I am Mother Nigeria venom by corrupt children- I brunt in pain whilst giving birth; according to constipated fidelity, I relinquish authority and power in return that they bath me in happiness; their old age mother, to purchase brand new clothing (Ankara) that I may dance with hands and feet all manner of tribes, to listen intently to my broken voice of lingering sorrow: to curb my ongoing envy of brighter nations of the world.

    But here I am- demising from fangs of my own children with economic retrogression along with mockery over medieval attire scornfully bought for me.

    Like a breast feeding mother, I fall to subsequent pain under malicious teeth; pain from resources meant to array me with wealth and immortal comeliness, is made willful dictate by foreigners.

    So, I say, for I have long ran out of air to breath to gargantuan clamor; that you LEADERS of NIGERIA hearken the voice of good conscience and sieve out vile pigment from stream of abundant gifts I bestowed you, that it once and for all time remain just and crystal clear towards me Mother Nigeria.

    With your allegiance towards a change of heart, I vow to alleviate entirely- my quota of grudge, curses and despise.

    Far too long, I, with your hands been made subject to snare by African countries to my concern in settling conflicts (civil wars) amongst neighbors; Sierra Leon, Libaria- and failed to cater for mine; “So, I am called GIANT OF AFRICA OUTWARDLY” but VERMIN from the same lips of South Africa, Morocco, Egypt and others.

    I am displaced as towards growth and development- harangued incessantly by feeling of despair, for I have wept but weep, hoped but hope and remain as I am just as I am- until…..

  20. Name (required)

    Welcome honourable ministers.we look forward 2 c the best in you.like peak would say,its in you.good luck

  21. Obinna Kalu

  26. Onwubiko Igwe Emmanuel

Your appointment as a minister is never by a mistake, and so there are every tendecy to believe that you can discharge your duties at your desposal. The profolio giving to you is for you to help push our dear country Nigeria to a greater hight. Remember, ”the evil that men do live with them”. Nigeria can be better if you do your job.
