  1. I am satisfied with this list ,however I must warn/advise that a new minster of Agriculture would be one knowledgeable in modern practice of agriculture to know that agriculture should be practiced as a business and only based on research alone as done in industrialized countries of America/Europe/Asia/India, etc. The state has to allow the four functional areas of business management -accounting, banking and finance, marketing and management studies, together with educational management courses should be taught as ago-allied courses in our specialized universities and or universities of agriculture as done in other countries. So a new minister of agriculture should be one who has understanding of this inter-relatedness and multidisciplinary nature of the age long profession of agriculture and that the CBN that has been encouraging teaching of financial literacy at secondary levels is in this spirit. This new minister of agriculture and his education counterpart ought to understand this very well and that the establishment of Entrepreneurship center in our high institutions with specialized universities inclusive is aimed at imbibing entrepreneurship culture in them and over 80 % resource persons or instructors of these centers come from management sciences it must be noted. A word is enough for the wise. Again both the information and foreign affairs have been doing well and are expected back to continue in their good works, same goes for transport and aviation ministers, shikinah!
