TREND­ING #The­List: Buhari’s min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees…>

Daily Trust - - YOUTH VILLE -

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari fi­nally sent the first set of list of his min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees to the Se­nate for con­fir­ma­tion late Wed­nes­day. Dur­ing his In­de­pen­dence An­niver­sary ad­dress, he ex­plained that sub­se­quent lists would be for­warded to the Se­nate in due course.

The Se­nate Pres­i­dent Bukola Saraki con­firmed re­ceiv­ing the list and that sent anx­iously wait­ing ne­ti­zens on frenzy as #The­List which was al­ready in use gained mo­men­tum, bat­tered with tweets, com­ments, sta­tus and posts.

Bukola Saraki@buko­lasaraki’s ini­tial tweet read: “I can now con­firm that I just re­ceived #The­list of Min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees”

On the sub­mis­sion time of the list which from the photo op showed 4:59pm SK - Sola Kuti@SKSo­laKuti wrote “Medi­ocrity is cel­e­brat­ing the sub­mis­sion of a min­is­te­rial list. Cel­e­brat­ing its sub­mis­sion af­ter clos­ing hours is mega medi­ocrity.”

Some ne­ti­zens posed a hack­ing chal­lenge. A dar­ing Umeh Oma@Ume­hOMA tweeted: “All of you that are claim­ing to be hack­ers or those that leak exam ques­tions, oya come and leak #The­List.”

Some had praises for the Pres­i­dent men. “The fact that the pres­i­dency can keep se­cret #The­List of 36 nom­i­nees this well, sig­ni­fies PMB has got some very loyal staff/ad­vi­sors,” Mustapha@musta­fara­malan tweeted.

Crit­ics were out in full force as Chair­man@Fon­skyy tweeted: “Se­condly, there’s no ex­cuse for not hav­ing a proper cab­i­net by now. Cab­i­net, not #The­List is what we ex­pected in Septem­ber.”

Bat­ty­cash@Batarhe - “I’ll have my team/cab­i­net they said. 120 days later all we have is #The­List. God pun­ish devil.”

Ade­laja Adeoye@Ade­la­jaAdeoye - “Buhari promised to form cab­i­net on or be­fore Septem­ber end­ing.”

Ohi­mai God­win Amaize @MrFixNige­ria was out to set the record straight. “For the records, we don’t have a cab­i­net yet. NOM­I­NEES will still un­dergo Se­nate screen­ing be­fore we have a cab­i­net, some­time in Oc­to­ber.”

Mean­while Saraki told anx­ious ne­ti­zens who were de­mand­ing for the con­tent to wait till Tues­day “Fol­low­ing tra­di­tion of @NGRSe­nate, en­ve­lope con­tain­ing #The­list of Min­is­te­rial nom­i­nees will re­main sealed till ple­nary on Tues­day,” @buko­lasaraki tweeted.

Co­in­ci­den­tally #The­list was also trend­ing in Amer­ica but for rea­sons re­lated to fash­ion and pa­parazzi.
