Former sports minister of the federal republic, Solomon Dalung has become a subject of mockery following his inability to feature on the ministerial list submitted to the National Assembly by President Muhammadu Buhari for his second term cabinet.
Mr. Dalung has recently come under intense scrutiny in the hands of many Nigerians who thought his time as the Minister of Sports and youth development was a disaster.
Many had wished he never made it back and well and truly happy now that their wish seem to have been granted by the president.
Mr. Dalung’s nomination was replaced by Mrs. Pauline Kedem Tellen, who hails from the same state, Plateau.

Every one in a while, Buhari somehow manages to get it right. So long to Dalung and Shittu. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out…

What is my offence? I cannot find my name on the Ministerial nominees list.
Please get back to me, don’t be unfortunate.

Paullen tallen replacing Solomon Dalung from Plateau state has to be the highlight of that list. Dalung has embarrassed my state long enough. #MinisterialList

Shittu and Dalung not making this ministerial list makes me happy. Eyes were on Dalung,but Shittu was a total failure, no impact from him at all. #TheList
