Nigerians reacted differently as President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday inaugurated his “next level” ministers at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Concise News reported that the inauguration following a two-day retreat for the ministers at the same venue.
They were nominated in July and underwent screening at the National Assembly before they finally got their portfolios.
Following the inauguration, most Nigerians did not express optimism at the ministers and the portofolios assigned to them.
Others were shocked that some persons like Festus Keyamo was handed a different portfolio.
Below are some of the reactions that greeted the swearing-in of the ministers into the Buhari cabinet:
I am not surprised Canada is trending few hours after #BuhariCabinet was inaugurated.
Same team that delivered “CHANGE” have been recruited for the “NEXT LEVEL”.
While I hoping for a better Nigeria, some of the names in that list actually bother me.
Nigeria deserves better.

Festus Keyamo said he would Unbundle the Supreme Court during his ministerial screening by the Senate. Obviously, the cabal think that’s exuberant. So, they shipped him to be Minister of State for Niger Delta, to pacify regional agitations with constitutionality.#BuhariCabinet
