Geoffrey Onyeama takes the top spot on this week’s YNaija Effectiveness Ranking for Ministers

Geoffrey Onyeama Assistant General Director of the World Intellectual Property Organization, participated in the inauguration of the new Costa Rican Academy of Intelectual Property, Thursday April 19th, 2012.

Majority of our Ministers do well to maintain the status quo this week, with Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama edging Minister of Justice & Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami out for the top spot.

Onyeama’s rise, interestingly enough, is due to something that might be seen as the purview or Malami, as he declared his unwavering support for whistleblowers. In the flurry of statements about percentages and billions, the one thing that has gone unnoticed (or at least unacknowledged and unmentioned) till now has been the subject of the safety of whistleblowers.
