I agree with @Jules. No experience whatsoever. Maybe an Assistant position would have been okay. To think that the NPA is a very crucial organisation in Nigeria.

@RemmyAlex Just do a change of name to either Bala, Usman or anything related to that. Be an ardent critic of the previous administration and never hide your hatred of it. Blow the trumpet of the present administration to high heavens. Then you might just be lucky :D

LOL... I asked... 'what's the qualification needed for a position to head NPA, political-wise?. No smartness, just needed a basic argument on why Buhari can't appoint her or mistake Buhari made appointing her.

You introduced the term 'political-wise' to the argument. MD of NPA wasn't created to be a political position. It's a career position

Just as we must argue, I think we also need to be talking from an informed mind. I know little if not much about NPA and its basic analysis and I know the Presidency is empowered to APPOINT the MANAGING DIRECTOR for the organization. You can do yourself a favour by finding same answers to the questions you dropped earlier by educating your mind.

In case you might have forgotten, Here are the questions again:

All the best again Madam Juliana!
