I see ignorance looming in Nigeria....... were are all this irrelevant appointment gonna lead us to?
personal assistance to the president on new media, senior special adviser on new media
later them go say Nigeria is broke, abi nor be money dem one take pay them?
less I forget, it was this same Tolu Ogunlese that publish that damning article about GEJ on the Economics magazine calling him an Ineffectual Buffoon. I am now made to believe that the only way to get employed or appointed by the govt of Buhari is to insult GEJ.....
