Anambra State Governor, Mr Willie Obiano has appointed a 30-yr-old man named Mark Okoye as a commissioner in his government. Mark was yesterday confirmed as the Honourable Commissioner for Economic Planning & Budget Development by the Anambra State House of Assembly and is regarded as the youngest commissioner in Nigeria.

Now a tweet from Gov Obiano's official twitter account that links to a statement on a website announcing the appointment - described Mark as a '30-yr-old young and sound boy'. The term 'boy' attracted the attention of twitter users who found it condescending. See their reactions after the cut.
