The Minister of Police Affairs, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi will announce the inauguration date of the Board of Trustees of the Police Trust Fund.


  1. I sight my pastor up there.

  2. Why must it be persons from a particular ethnic group heading agencies and boards?This has been the hallmark of this administration and the rubber-stamped legislators would never see any act of infraction on the provisions of the constitution.Just too bad.

    1. I share same sentiments with you. I know they also cause some bottle necks in ensuring some policies do not see the light of day

  3. Dinner is ready.

  4. Abba again?

  5. Northerners always appointed as heads of boards, agencies etc. Well if he can deliver no problem

    1. Then why mention it in the first place? Just to stir up tribal discontent?? Abeg shift if you have nothing positive to contribute and that means going beyond the tribal delineations

  6. Here we go again πŸ”₯πŸ”₯🎑🎼🎼🎼

  7. Good for them,more money in their bank accounts

  8. And no woman dey the board!
