    DsTV next on the list! Looool
    Nigerians have endured enough in the hands of these unruly foreign companies.
    Don’t even get me started on non-existent labour laws in Nigeria which results in Nigerians being treated like crap right in their own country.

    The next place they need to put the spotlight on are all these Chinese and Lebanese companies.
    Una just start.
