Northern women really doing well in politics despite all odds. Six of the seven female ministerial nominees are from the north. This is a very great achievement considering the fact that northern women started participating actively in politics in 1979.

The Zainab Ahmed again?
She doesn't even have good CV for finance minister.
I'm sure Buhari will still pick her for finance minister.

Nothing for Nigeria this next four years. Same old unreasonable politicians.

The constitution forces the president to appoint at least one person from each State into the cabinet. So what's your point sir?

First let's see which portfolio he gives to each person: finance, petroleum or minister of state for example.
