The day has finally come! The day Nigerians have been eagerly waiting for since Buhari began his presidency.
For months, Nigerians waited and lamented about Buhari’s non-existent ministerial list. Zikoko even created a mixtape about it.
But today, Buhari revealed his 36 ministers to the world and Nigerian Twitter has a lot to say about it!
Babatunde Fashola has been named Minister of Power, Works and Housing and here’s what Nigerians have to say about it:
There was even a prediction made in the month of April that turned out to be 70% correct.
Some Nigerians believe Fashola holds one of the most important position in the country.
Others believe he could be our next president.
Fashola’s appointment isn’t the only one Nigerians are talking about. The beloved Rotimi Amaechi has been named Minister of Transportation.
And the people are divided in their opinions.
??? Rotimi Amaechi, we wish you God’s speed.
