  1. Congratulations to him, whatever this is not the issh now....

    1. And biodata refers to personal information not a cv or resume. Tbh who cares really. This man is 74 and from over there so the ride continues.

  2. Doesn't change the fact that he is 75 and was a Minister in 1983. When will vibrant forward thinkers have a chance to determine the fate of their children and generations to come?! When?!!!!

    1. Vibrant forward thinkers like you who are still jumping around to Naira Marley's song and arguing all day on social media on who's better between Beyonce and Rhianna or Messi and Ronaldo? Y'all Nigerian youths aren't yet ready hence. You've shown time and time again that you are not yet ready and cannot deliver that's why these old men keep taking your shine

    2. For your mind the only"vibrant forward thinkers" are the keypad warriors and the Nigeria lazy youth abi? The old folks are far far better than the rogues we have on sits as Governor and the dishonorable Gorilla that called their selfs law makers.
      How many of Nigeria sitting Governors/law makers have such academic quality? Except parading their selves with fake results.

    3. This Esah is always saying rubbish.
      Are the youths ever given opportunities in this country ? if you are surrounded by keypad warriors and Naira marley fans that is your own problem you don't mix with serious folks.
      Go abroad, UK/US we have many of our youths in parliament, in govt. People who grew up here and migrated later.

    4. Eesah say something reasonable

  3. ImpressiveπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  4. Very impressive, worthy of emulation.
    His children must be super proud.


  5. whatever they like let them do it.

  6. congratulations sir! More wins....

  7. Where is that anon that was crying over everyone's comment the other time in a bid to defend this appointment? Oya, food don land.

  8. what else is he looking for in Aso rock?
    Why not give the younger folks opportunity to build their own resumes just like
    he had had???
    Is Nigeria a gerontocracy? 😏😏😏😏😏😏

  9. Impressive πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
