  4. Iyamuri like u who too sentimental. Why u no talk when GEJ appointed SSG, Finance and petroleum ministers from south, and out of eight powerful ministers no any Yoruba. Live GMB alone leadership for Nigeria is for Yoruba's, northerners and south south. You are even lucky you have peoples like Okorocha, Ngige etc otherwise I will say nothing for IBO's who even fighting their parents. You are too envy.

  7. Please no body should weep for us Igbos. We are the cause of our problems. Remember, Ike Ekweremadu usurped what does not belong to him and yet we want to participate in Buhari's government. It is because of Ike Ekweremadu's inordinate ambition that the Igbos are suffering now in this government. Weep no more my brothers and sisters. We are the architect of our misfortunes. God bless Nigeria.

  11. i hav not commented before but this present move is an indication of President Buhari Motive for us. I campaigned for his election and his subsequent emergence. but i pray he dont allowed his fanaticism to destroy our united nation. we need prayers for Buhari
However, it can be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari last month dismissed insinuations that he was implementing a northern agenda in his appointments.

Although many people will disagree.

What are your thought?
