Osinbajo, be a man. Instigate the Doctrine of necessity now.

No Yoruba in Buhari's cabinet get spine like late Professor Dora Akunyili.

Nigeria has suffered a lot without a president. Billions of Naira lost, but only a few know how it is lost.

The Attorney General is the Minister/Commisioner for justice while the Solicitor General is the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry whether State or federal.

And some Nigerian Jews will say Osinbajo doesn't have the power to appoint. A whole ACTING PRESIDENT. Maybe we should remind then we are using Nigerian constitution, not Israeli or ancient Jewish law.
