New Minister of Education Appointed- Nyesom Wike and 8 others Replaced Sacked Ministers

Yesterday, we reported that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan Sacked 9 Ministers including the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufa’i, she told new men today, 12th September, 2013 that she is going back to school. (Please someone should remind her that there is Asuu Strike… or she want to go teach monkeys? This reminds of those children songs… when we were kid, if you goto school early, lizard will be your teacher. bla bla bla. How time flies?)

The President didn’t particularly give reasons for the mass sack that happened yester-night but there are speculations in some quarters that it was politically motivated. (wait ooo. you didn’t read this here o). Between, am not too concern about why they are sacked or replaced. The only reason why this is a topic here is because our Minister of Education is among those sacked, and also Asuu strike, aside from that, I have not seen any FG money. lol.
Anyways I heard that the 9 ministers sacked today were nominated by the Governors that defected to the new PDP aka Atiku’s PDP. I guess the old PDP want show them that power pass power. Nigerian politicians they will never stop acting drama.(well, i guess Nollywood get their story line from them)
