When The President’s Tweets Become Risk Factors; The Abuja Screening

When The President’s Tweets Become Risk Factors; The Abuja Screening

First, do not worry that I am not writing about what they are doing in Abuja. I simply do not know where to begin. Yes, I find it offensive to allow ministerial nominees to bow and leave in Senate when we have real issues in the nation. Yet, I do not blame the Senate: why send them for confirmation without revealing their expected ministries? Practically, there is no way to assess these nominees without knowing their portfolios. But that is Nigeria!

Imagine if someone was nominated for Defense ministry – a simple question on how to protect the border would naturally follow. But with no portfolio, assessment becomes the quality of the eye contacts between ministerial nominees and the Senators.

So, I go to America. If you are a risk manager, is there a likelihood that you would see the Tweet of your national president as a risk factor? This President Trump tweet sequence is fascinatingly unbelievable! Poor Google!

The president of the United States called out two of the nation’s largest tech firms in a pair of tweets this morning. Google  was the first target. The statement follows weeks of suggested investigations of the tech giant over a supposed relationship with China
