    Somebody should please advise this minister and Lai Mohammed that we are concerned about their looks. They are not Iranians or Afghanistans. They are ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Looking more Mohammedan than Mohamed is NOT part of their brief. They must look decent

    • Omooba

      Looks does not matter, performance is the key. Google current Canadian defense minister, you will see him in full turban and heavy facial hair. Who cares, look any way you want, just do your job diligently. It is time Nigerians should focus on performance of our office holders rather than looks, tribe or religion.
