A method of collectively finding one to blame for a mistake no one is willing to confess to. Often occurs in the form of a meeting of colleagues at work, gathered to decide who is to blame for a screw up.

Boris (i.e Professor Babalola Borishade, the Aviation minister) has been making a lot of noise about sunday's plane crash. He claims the accident was caused by pilot error.
Boris was on a media offensive within minutes of the plane crashing. Trust naija man now, when your political future is at stake, you have to pull out all the stops to ensure that you keep your job. If it means blaming a dead guy for the rot in the aviation sector, so be it.

Boris has always had a hard time, when he was education minister, it was ASUU that was giving him a hard time. Now that he is in charge of aviation, all these bloody planes keep falling out of the sky.
But na wah for Boris o, when Sosoliso crashed he blamed God, (saying it was 'God's will'). Now he is blaming the pilot. So who will he blame next time another accident occurs, the one armed man??

Meanwhile i searched Google and was surprised to find out that Boris is actually a nuclear scientist, Osanobua!! its a good thing we don't have nuclear reactors in naija, can you imagine if this guy was in charge.

Anyway the blamestorming continues, the average nigerian couldn't give a fuck, more people die weekly from road accidents but no one cares about that..

update (from BBC news)
Nigerian aviation minister sacked
Nigeria's aviation minister has been sacked following the plane crash on Sunday in which the spiritual leader of Nigeria's Muslims and 95 others died.
Babalola Borishade swaps jobs with Culture Minister Femi Fani-Kayode, according to the president's office.

Swapping one fool for another fool...

Osanobua? Ovbi'Edo wekhin?
