      NDM Commentary:
      ==============

      Now that the ministers and special advisers have been chosen, the Nigerian
      Democratic Movement joins the Nigerian citizenry to fully expect President
      Obasanjo and his team to settle down and begin the task of putting forward
      policies and successfully implementing them in order to improve the lives
      of ordinary Nigerians. Otherwise the flurry of hirings and firings will be
      nothing more than the re-arrangement of the furniture on the deck of the
      Titanic.

      Ths ship of state of Nigeria needs serious re-floating, so let the work
      begin, and let all hands be on deck.
