    After a long waiting, finally we have the ministers. Our medias have a lot to contribute as the nation watchdog to exposing any evil deeds of some of our ministers and this will lead to Transperancy in every ministry. Our media have a lot to contribute by telling the nation the TRUTH, just as it is, without compromising your professionalism in the name of bribery. The office of the presidency cannot monitor the activities of all the ministers and their various ministeries without the helping hands of our media houses. Expose any minister found wanting and help this nation to regain her lost glory globally. Any Nigerian that is not fed up with the level of corruption in this country is an unpatriotic individual. May God help us as a nation.
