    All this stealing by trick and giving them names and subject. That is why comedians and Musicians are wanting to enter politics. Easy money without stress and stealing without anyone to query you or arrest you.
    Mean while,some people cannot afford 2 meals a day and someone, somewhere is talking about customized plate and cutlery to eat WHAT………………………….
    God will judge these people on earth and beyond. Stealing and Corruption is so celebrated………………………. What is going on?

    This is what happens when all we do is put everything on God, instead of trying to let God use us to do something good. Most Nigerians have a corrupt mindset, because that is how society have shown how easy it is to steal and get away with it, as long as they are public figures and the steal big, they know their corrupt judicial friends will let them go, and that Nigerians will make noise about them being corrupt for a second and then let it go and leaves everything to God. Am not saying God is not important, but God uses people when they are willing to work. In Nigeria all the politicians ( I have three in my family and am very ashamed) go into politics to get what they can and when money is running out they want to get back into power. I blame Nigerians for not choosing leaders with integrity. The sad thing is that Nigerians are comfortable with kleptocrats in power.
