If you ask me the worst disease that has ever plagued Nigeria, the answer is not far-fetched. The worst plague is "Yar adua government" I mean the most unfortunate thing that has ever happened to Nigeria all through history. From Yar'adua himself, his vice Goodluck, down to the members of his cabinet, tell me who is genuinely interested in the growth and future of Nigeria. They are all bundles of unsound minds!

Who is Chief Ojo Madueke? Who is Ufot Ekeatte? Who is Dr Sam Egwu? Tell me what these selfish Nigerians know that other Nigerians do not. They have all served in the failed OBJ administration. So, what new things do they intend to bring to the polity? Are they not satisfied with their loots? A serious revolution must terminate all these unfaithful rebels!

Yar'dua is half dead and has no vigor to shoulder the project called Nigeria. It is only in Nigeria a president would be sick and yet refuse to resign. The reminiscence of the eight-year OBJ wasteful administration is still fresh in our memories, and Yar'adua is adding insult to our injury. May God visit all of them with great wrath!

i don't know y people r talking about the appointments as if they are mandatory. if you are nominated for an appointment that you don't feel you are suitable for, you simply turn it down. that, i believe is what dora (nafdac boss) should have done. but in naija, as long as u r made a leader of a ministry u r not meant 4, even ur family people will ask if u have gone mad 4 turning it down. they expect u 2 take it, so that u can feed fat.

More doom for Nigeria as President completes cabinet reshuffle

Nigeria president completes cabinet reshuffle

Tue 23 Dec 2008, 13:52 GMT

[-] Text [+]

By Felix Onuah

ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's president on Tuesday swore in four more members to his cabinet, including the finance minister, completing his reshuffle of the power structure.

Many Nigerians hope President Umaru Yar'Adua -- whose lethargic governance has earned him the nickname "Baba Go-Slow" -- will now implement the widespread reforms he promised when he was elected 19 months ago.

Yar'Adua started the reshuffle in August by replacing his military chiefs, which some saw as a sign that he was throwing off the influence of his predecessor Olusegun Obasanjo.

"I have the confidence that the four of you will do your best to contribute to ensure that we work towards the accomplishment of our vision," Yar'Adua said after the ceremony.

The president appointed Mansur Muhtar of the African Development Bank as finance minister.

Analysts welcomed the choice, saying Muhtar was a well respected director general in the Debt Management Office under the Obasanjo administration.

"I think he's an excellent choice. He's got the technical knowledge and experience that's necessary for the job," said Obadiah Mailafia, head of Nigeria's Centre for Policy and Economic Research.

Muhtar was one of the key negotiators in obtaining Nigeria's debt agreement with the Paris Club of rich creditor nations in 2005, the first African nation to reach such a deal.

The new finance minister will face several challenges in his first few months, including passing the 2009 budget, stabilising the naira currency and minimising the economic fallout from falling global oil demand.

Muhtar replaces Shamsuddeen Usman, who was appointed head of the National Planning Commission last week.

NIGER DELTA

Yar'Adua picked Ufot Ekaette, former secretary to the federal government under Obasanjo, to head the newly created Niger Delta Ministry.

Ekaette, from southern Akwa Ibom state in the delta, will be responsible for improving security and development in the region, home to Africa's biggest oil and gas industry.

Attacks on oil industry facilities and kidnappings for ransom are frequent and have cut Nigeria's oil output by a fifth over the past three years, to around 2 million barrels per day.

Nigeria's most prominent militant group, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, said it was "not impressed" by Yar'Adua's choice for minister.

"Ufot Ekaette did not bring about any significant change when he was secretary to the government of the federation and we doubt he can do any better now," the group's spokesman, who uses the pseudonym Jomo Gbomo, told Reuters in an e-mail.

MEND said it would not negotiate until the government releases Henry Okah, the group's suspected leader who is on trial for gun-running and treason in the central city of Jos.

Militant attacks have declined sharply since MEND declared a ceasefire in September.

Yar'Adua also swore in Rilwan Babalola as power minister and Achike Udenwa to head commerce and industry.

You want faith? Well I will give you faith for you marvelous country called Nigeria. One of the new annoited mnisters Rilwanu Lukman for instance had been minister of many things in the past even before your grandfather was born and he is still around the corridors of power and will only retire when six feet under in a wooden box.

If that is what you are ptting faith on, you as doomed as Nigeria.

Shettima Mustapha was vice presidential candidate to Nnamdi Azikiwe many years ago, and today, he is still being appointed to serve as a minister is a fast moving world, And you wonder if he can even send a fax message let alone using a computer and that is the kind of faith you are looking for, to move Nigeria forward? You are doomed like your country too.

Useless nation full of brainless people!!!!!

List of Ministers: Nigeria is Doomed. Just checking to confirm the portfolio of our great Dora and other ministers listed. I strongly voted "Yes" to With

This List Is there Hope for Nigeria. Why? The World has changed, including Nigeria. Can you see these changes; Justice seem to come. Restoration follows. We're getting wiser everyday. Many of they corrupted ones will find it difficult to operate in the same ways they did in the  past. See what happened in our time  "Obama." Relax, Nigeria is not doomed by that list. God pass every immaginations of men.

For one when you look at the list, it is obviously in favour of the North.

Secondly, when you look at the calibre of people nominated, it is either they are unknown, old recycled or wrong pegs in the

wrong holes.

Compared to the Lagos State government, even after over a year and a half, Nigerians do not have a clear idea about where the

country is headed to. The much touted and publicised 7 point agenda at the last count seems more than 7 points and very few

Nigerians have an accurate idea of what the core points are. Obama's CHANGE objective was clearly understood by many hence his

overwhelming success at the polls.

When Yar Adua showed up after the former President's failed third term agenda, he seemed the best out of "several terrible options".

Not a few found solace in his integrity ratings as Katsina state governor. Even with the issues that came out of the credibility of the elections

that put him in power, a lot of people felt he could be given a trial. Several others have seen however that aside the identification of

integrity there is also the need for productivity which seems lacking.

He started as it seemed to not a few to completely uproot every structure his predecessor put in place.

Ribadu humiliated, he seemed to do little about it. Professor Akunyili made a Minister for Information - it seems like an agenda

to remove her from NAFDAC as was done to Dr. Mrs. Okonjo Iweala. He rejected Soludo's revaluation policy and it seems there is still much to come.

Hundreds of Millions of Naira budgetted for ASO Rock maintenance, a car inflation issue in the National assembly- we expected that he would stamp down his foot and bring the matter to a logical conclusion, several millions of naira spent travelling the world-Was it the travelling of his predecessor that opened doors or the appointment of experts and professionals, the deregulation of key sectors and the empowerment of key departments that did the trick? Do we need to travel out to get investors when with attractive conditions like efficient power supply they can all come running here?

To a lot of people Yar Adua just looks like the story that a bad tree can not bring forth good fruit. In teh past 2 decades, a lot of fingers point to two institutions- The North and the military for Nigeria's myriad of problems.

I rest my case but what are your views?

With a word like Nigeria, it appears sense has lacked the common part of it. What has political disagreement between the Sam Egwu and Pius Anyim got to do ministry of education? I had to be assured that the goons at the Nigerian Senate are not insinuating that the office of the senate president is now the embodiment of Nigerian education. Any state governor can have political row or disagreement with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigerian talk less of a mere position of senate president.

This deliberate display of political immaturity by the members of the senate or its subcommittee as being highlighted by the previous post magnifies the mockery of democracy by Nigerians. Instead of posing questions on the ability of the education minister-appoint on how to improve education in Nigeria, the loonies were trying very hard to make their position in the senate relevant. I am completely flabbergasted that a budding Nigerian had the arduous impetus to post this crap on this board. Nigeria is really a geographical expression.

I don't see much good things in the list.

Even Dora that I have always been proud of, accepted an offer that shouldn't have been hers. I know she has a lot of abilities (she is a complete woman-man) but it would have been better to have her in the education or health sector where she will flush out all the cancaworms that have eaten the green leaves of the nation to the stem. I hope she will maintains her record.

My hope is to see how the new person in Dora's ex-position will act.

Prof Osotimehin has misappropriated over $ 2 Billion through out his tenure @ NACA, burnt documents 2 cover his tracks and alas! Our Sleeping, I mean creeping Commander-in-Chief deems it fit to appoint him a Minister of the Federal Republic.

After his tenure (the C-in-C), Nigerians will feel like we had been in a trance - No improvements to our lives, we've just been stationary

muza i quiet agree with you gthat Yar'adua is really abokilike in his way an mannar of handling issues.All the same what gives you the impression that all these appointed ministers are the wrong candidates.and why do you think that among all these ones ,prof.Dora is the only qualified person amongs them.well i think you know so little about politics and the pedigree of theses candidates.More so you can only speak like that for Prof.Dora because of her NAFDAC exploits.Why not give all of them the benefit of doubt to see who falls short of a grass-root standard peformance,

Late Martins Luther King Jnr predictions came to pass with the election of detribalised President Barrack Obama.Lft.Jerry Rawlings REVOLUTION in Ghana has paid off with a strong economy base,increased employment rates etc.We will be deceiving ourselves that Nigeria will be great and become giants of Africa with the calibre of these cowboys in the corridor of power.The ypuths of these country have a great task ahead,and should remain focused and on their toes,and save this country from the brinks of total collapse.

The Great Revolution of Ghana must rear its Head in Nigeria,to take good care of the few Mafisonia Cabals that are cogs in the wheels of the progress of this country.When these are accomplished,and with a new set of Charismatic detribalised leaders,the coast will then be clear to find a good Compass towards the growth of this country.

@hollandis,

how can you contemplate that Ezekwesili was out to destroy Education in Nigeria? Smacks of GROSS IGNORANCE!

She was the first and only person to Identify the real problems with the sector.

Imagine a situation where 80% of the entire ministry's budget goes for recurrent expenditure! Put in perspective, even when allocations have been increased over the years, we only end up increasing Techers' and Lecturers' salaries and bonuses.

The Question is ? :

For whom is the Education sector meant? Grooming tomorrow's leaders OR Feeding a generation that ate The budgets of Yesteryears?

She identified this ANOMALYand corrected it.  It took a radical shift in Paradigm.

What about the Adopt a School approach, where Oando adopted 250 secondary schools nationwide? This was novel, and imagine a multibillion naira company adopting a school! Upgrading the labs, retraining the teachers, giving scholarships to good students, etc!  And imagine the Public image SWELL of such a company! And the attendant copycatism and Competition in Coporate Nigeria! The banks, Telecoms, Oil Majors, and other coporate giants would begin to say, "Whose School is the Greatest?"

All this to the benefit of our Children and future leaders!

Have you seen the federal govt colleges lately? And you like them as they are? And you say that Ezekwesili wanted to kill Education?  I'M SORRY ABOUT YOUR OPINION!

In as much as we can castigate yaradua, the blame i am sorry to say still lies with obj, cos he presented the man using the pdp machinery to foist an underserved leader on us, its a shame. 2009 is going to be tough,contractors are already crying, debt is rising. how come the budget has had 20% implementtion in the last two years. when we expect our leader to inspire us with a speech which could assure investors and the citizens alike he comes out with the an uninspiring list, of what good is dora as info minister, why do we need 37 ministries when we know we cant balance the budget, why why am i a nigerian? when would we get a leader in this country?
