President Muhammadu Buhari recently sent a list of 43 Ministers designate to the Senate for screening.

Qualifications dont matter,when you want steal,kill and destroy. Gone are the days when they would bamboozle us with all this crap and we will think there is hope, many of those you see there lobbied their way there, and with lobbying, cash and favours is involved, if you think this people will not misuse their office to enrich their pocket and oppress the average nigerian, you must be a learner, i support buhari and Apc, but i am not and will never be a zombie, i will praise who does well and critizise who dosent, irrespective of party, because i am first a Nigerian before any affiliations,
So am stating it here that a good number of this ministers are criminals with nothing to offer.

..,

Certificate don't add up to anything it's intellectual idea for those of you who pay too much attention to first class (individuals and firms) let's take Ogbonaya onu as a case study he's a first-class Alumuni in 1976 that's when education was at its best at that time but look at his input as the minister of science and technology.

He did nothing even the pencil he promised us we're yet to see it after four years. His overall achievement was creating awareness of the importance of science and technology for good four years. He might be intelligent but lack ideas. We must learn to give way for creativity than mere certificate.

If a creative school cert was given the opportunity to become a minister in any field you'll hear all sort of bashing but a first class graduates is messing up big time.

The CV of former finance minister is dry...
We can't afford to continue with this kind of local brain.
Our finance sector needs an expert with proofing record track records....

Ahmed zanaib CV can't get more than a bank manager in a sane organization. Buhari , pls don't give her minister of finance portfolio again .... She is not qualify for the position.
