Godfrey Onyema

The scorecard of Goeffrey Onyema, Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister during President Muhammadu Buhari’s first term was hardly impressive.

Then, Onyema allegedly showed a carefree attitude towards the spate of a lot of Nigerians living abroad.

But same cannot be said of Onyeama, as he was heavily criticised for not breaking a sweat for his fellow countrymen and women despite knowing the ordeal they were facing.

Many would argue that this was what saw him heavily criticised when he was re-appointed to his previous office.
