    A very befitting burial and home-going ceremony given to him. Very well deserved. Good night Mandela.(

    Rest in peace the great man of Africa.Mandela’s footsteps are already embedded in the sand of time. This should serve as lesson to our Nigerian leaders. Good begets good. How can the entire world speak good of one man and speak in one voice about his deeds? The criminals we call Nigerian leaders are busy looting the treasury and denying this generation and unborn generations of a sustainable future because of the poverty that exists in their mind. May God punish any Nigeria leader that sees Mandela’s funeral on tv or in any media without turning a new leaf!!! I mean punish the leader a hundred fold. We cant continue clapping for bastards and indulging the fools we call leaders in Nigeria.
