Nigerians reactions on X (formerly Twitter)

Nwagwe Everest wrote, “Maybe this man wants to open a production company to rival Universal Studios.”


Somto Anaerobic said: “47-man team? Even Nollywood has no crew like this!”

Amuda Dewale said, “How do you plan to reduce the cost of governance with so many advisers on media only? Will they be operating the Adamawa radio station or the station, because why do you need about 50 people?”

@iam_bussie said: “So you are so clueless, you need 47 people to handle your media department. At a time when we are asking for trimming in the cost of governance, Wahalai, it can never be well with you people thinking you can use government coffers as a means to reward people.”

@theamazaing_ama said: “This guy’s media team is larger than Zikoko, TechCabal, and Stears put together, with no prospect of generating revenue.”


@Chydee wrote, “The fact that he has all these people on his media team and they still thought it was a good idea to post this means that they’re all grossly incompetent. this more hurting.”

@viqforlan: “Let’s say you even appointed 47 aides; announcing it on X shows you’re not reading the room or feeling the pulse of the nation. It’s really a shame. You fell off.”

@OjiUgo_uwa: “These people in government are not interested in cutting down the cost of governance. I mean, why does a state Governor need two Special Advisers, 10 senior special assistants, and 35 special assistants on social media? ”

@okekecc: “Sir, you missed out some names; it should have been 100 appointees.”
