Rubbish list


The only credible people there are

1. Dora Akumyili for her work in nafdac
2. Okonjo Iweala for debt relief

And one more not in the list

3.Dr. ADADAEVOH FOR IDENTIFYING EBOLA patient zero


The rest of the names there are mainly thieves and cabals who are the reasons why Nigeria is a failed state in drowning in a recession
