      Shining for what? It's a job or appointment well below him. He's only helping or "advising" capacity in that regards. He's done before & and still bigger or better things.

  5. What I like about this team is non of them has any political affiliation to Trump. They were all chosen on merit and they are all business gurus and executives. In the case of my country reverse is always the case.

    1. Sorry this is global world.
      Who does coming to nigeria help?
      The man is a global citizen & making money in any important currency!!!!

    2. @ AbaMade
      Did your politicians/President appoint him at any point in order to get a working country? Most definitely No! U expect him to live less his potentials and have them so called leaders here dull his star?
      See, the name is so African and Yoruba at that and he's a good example to crown it all.
      It's time we embraced light and quit living in darkness. Let's get capable hands to work on this country and make her great again. Enough of the recycling!!!
