#MinisterialList: ‘A Diversion From Shi’ite Protest Killings, Retirement for Governors’ [TWEETS]

Mixed reactions have trailed Tuesday’s release of a list of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial nominees.

Coming barely 24 hours after the bloody Shi’ites protest on Monday in Abuja during which a Channels Television reporter, Precious Owolabi, Police DCP Usman Umar and at least 11 other Nigerians were killed, there are concerns that the announcement of the ministerial list is a subtle diversion to distract Nigerians from the killings.

In the ministerial list which is currently the major trending topic on Twitter Nigeria, former governors and senators like Godswill Akpabio and Rauf Aregbesola are nominees. Several ministers in the previous cabinet also made the list raising queries about the non-inclusion of relatively young Nigerians in the new cabinet. Ahead of the 2019 presidential elections, President Buhari had promised to appoint young Nigerians into his cabinet if re-elected.
