  1. Buhari father of nepotism given all d joicing post to northern Hausa Fulani’s may God deliver Nigeria from buhari….tinubu how market sir.

  2. Nigerian president for the North. How many South East, South West, South South are on the list? What is the ratio of the their population to the general population?

  3. Pmb,keep on apointing all those your ilitrate fulani brothers with cow milk brain,tomorrow you will blame gej,for your fellings.nepotism in the highest order.God Bless Biafra

  4. I agree that some of these appointments reek of nepotism. A head for information technology should come from the southern part of the country, not the north for obvious reasons. How many northerners are IT savvy? What do they know about technology, much more petroleum tech? If this government is serious, they need to use technocrats to achieve goals.
