Nigerians react after the name of the immediate past Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, was not included in the list of ministerial nominees submitted to the Senate by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.
Most Nigerians expected the name of Ambode to appear on the list, after he obeyed the APC’s directives and handed over to Babajide Sanwo-Olu after one term as Lagos Governor.
However, his name was not included in Buhari’s list submitted on Tuesday.
Here are some reactions:
@nattydamsel25, “Someone said Ambode didn’t get the cut off mark that’s why his name is missing on the list. #MinisterialList.”
@CasidiCafadi, “Since Ambode didn’t make #TheList, Permanent Secretary won’t pass him by.”
@Tee_Classiquem, “Ambode to tinubu, You stripped me off my throne and hand it over to Sanwo olu. #MinisterialList still come out I no dey there.”
@afekhumedaniel, “Na wa for these Lagos boys ooo…..You guys removed Ambode as Governor….prevented him from being appointed as Minister (if rumours are true)…and would still come on Social media to drag him on the floor.”
@Iam_aydebug, “Buhari finally release #MinisterialList and Ambode is missing, that’s impossible. Ambode waiting for supplementary list.”
@adebangie, “I’m pained. So on top all the waka wey Ambode follow Buhari do for the campaigns, local man didn’t make the list.”
