    Degree No 3/2017? Is it in the governor’s oath to degrees as well? I hope you folks uses that degree, degree wisely! Otherwise, don’t degree your wife in the kitchen with degree No 0 to stop cooking. Think for the kids first!

          The ministry of finance Trade and Industry need a technical one who specialize in economics. but the current minister will indeed do his best to cover up the state economy.
          I think those who criticize this cabinet are not perfectly unifying the state government.

    The minister for finance Trade and Industry Mabior Mayan Wuol, will do his best as he is always competence in his task given to him.
    many thanks to Mabior.
