With your “bow and go” method of screening? That’s why the country is not moving because the ministers-designate are clueless and don’t know what to do or why they are ministers pic.twitter.com/cVclcuLubs

So you call the charade you are doing on live TV screening of Ministers??
A man who blew N1.2b on a phantom Nigeria Air project was patted on the back to go do more after lecturing you guys on relaxing the laws that regulates procurement.
You guys are jokers!

You were supposed to examine candidates by screening and scrutinising. But you choose to allow many of them “take a bow” for political reasons.
As a student of Parliamentary Studies, I put it to you that you’re destroying the very essense of parliamentarism. This is unfortunate.

We witness the rubber stamp legislating we were shouting about yesterday
You were screening ministers without portfolio and yet you still wanna credit yourself for doing a good job?
Sir with all due respect, please stop this joke?

Sir, thanks to you and your colleagues. However, I was abit disappointed that you people did not demand that the nominations come with portfolio. What did you screen Aregbesola for? Or Ngige? Or Keyamo? What relevance does it have to their actual portfolio?
