    When Nebuchadnezzar invades conquer any country he takes all posts for his people and all the conquered people’s assets as the spoils of war. Nigeria is not any different in Buhari’s eyes and his administration

    When you deliberately fail to recognize that public service is not like working in the palm tree farm where you employ workers not based on qualifications, then you will continue to post biased comments like this while professional people like Jamoh are busy climbing to the top rungs of their profession. Learn, think, and progress.

    As much as I share the view that there is need for some regional balance. The question i also like to ask is when we had OBJ and Jonathan from the South, how well did we fair? If you ask me we are even better of projects like Lagos-Ibadan, 2nd Niger Bridge, Railway projects etc are to be considered.
