Reacting on X, previously known as Twitter, with laughter emojis and memes, one person joked that even Nollywood stars didn’t have such large media teams.

Another person said “maybe this man wants to open a media production company to rival Universal Studios”.

In an angry comment, one tweeter asked how the governor planned “to reduce the cost of governance with so much advisers on media only”.

The state of people’s personal budgets is on the minds of many in Adamawa state and beyond as prices continue to rise. Last weekend, looters raided warehouses in the state capital, Yola, in a move that was seen by some as a response to the increasing difficulties that people are facing.
