    A man who once said that nigerians were not suffering since they weren’t eating from dustbins. He stuck around long enough to see them do just that. He leaves the world a fulfilled man.

    Bella! Wharisdis? My eyes hurt from viewing this new form of BN. I’m sure it’s just a work in progress but please make it snappy. Thanks.
    Back to the matter, Umaru Dikko, I have no words for you because I believe it’s not right to speak ill of the dead (except Abacha).
