Following President Bola Tinubu’s announcement of the portfolios of the newly-appointed ministers on Wednesday, netizens have since taken to social media to share their thoughts on some of the politicians who made the list.
The appointment of the immediate past governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, as the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Festus Keyamo as Aviation Minister and Adegboyega Oyetola as Minister of Transportation, has since caused a stir online.
Reacting to the appointment, a tweep, Man of Letters, sharing the art of a comic laughing wrote: “Wike as minister of FCT.
Keyamo as minister of Aviation. Oyetola as minister of Transportation.”
Daniel Regia tweeting said, “Tinubu is appointing
Festus Keyamo as Aviation Minister; With what qualification or experience pls? Many of the nominees aren’t qualified for their positions but that of Festus, & Wike as FCT Minister are laughable. Nepotism seems to be the new politics in Nigeria, what a shame.”
Portharcourt People on Twitter also commented, saying, “So with Nyesom Wike as FCT Minister, will the live band move to Abuja?”
Iammightygeorge tweeted: “Yes o, Keyamo. Wetin e dey find for dia?.”
Mikael C Bernard also tweeted: “If Fela was alive, he’d have dropped 20 albums after seeing this list.
Sandalili is minister of Aviation???? Wike Minister of FCT
So they gave Wike a minister of FCT, so next election, he can help them rig and deliver FCT. LOL, these clowns think we are fools.”
“Keyamo, Oyetola and Wike are not supposed to be among honestly,” Aseyemoye Oluseyi also commented.
#Judeheavenly tweeted: “Festus Keyamo that supervised the highest unemployment rate in the history of Nigeria as Minister of State Labour, has been deployed to the Ministry of Aviation as Minister. When you think you have seen it all, boom the most ridiculous surfaces.”
#Dann_10 also tweeted: “Keyamo was given the minister of aviation portfolio….reminds me of Biden’s nominee that was screened by the US senate committee for the position to lead the FAA, and how he knew nothing about aviation. We play too much in this 🇳🇬(Technocrats).
