      Senator of the year for what? Insulting a fellow senator or adding to the cars in his garage? I weep for this nation.
      Why are we always celebrating mediocrity ???

    Booby prize well deserved.

    A booby prize is a joke prize usually given in recognition of a terrible performance or last-place finish. A person who finishes last, for example, may receive a booby prize such as a worthless coin. Booby prizes are sometimes jokingly coveted as an object of pride.

    I would give him an award too if the price was right. Please there’s recession and I’m not about that Ponzi scheme lifestyle.

    Nigerians we are reactive not proactive!! the change we seek is in our hands!! If we keep reacting and not doing anything about it we should expect these kind of leaders aka empty barrels to keep messing with the citizens! embezzling our funds! rubbing it in our faces and daring us to do something about it!!

    This one makes some people here in America (clears throat as I am unable to type the name since I am at work) look like bourgeois and royal stock! Getting recognized for doing and saying really bad and horrible things. The YouTube video of him dancing did it for me. I was appalled (make I use big words like Seun Egbegbe or whathisname?) Serious shame.
