    With the condition of this country now ehn, I can see why someone can just lose hope. But suicide is never the best solution. God help him

      The absent president is fit as fiddle in U.K. ?? relaxing. Never in our history have we heard or seen this countless number of suicide and it’s attempts. I said it the last time that many Nigerians are getting hopeless but they called me names.

    Can’t they block the road and possibly secure the place incase he jumps … before their very eyes this man will jump and they will say we tried to talk him out of committing suicide.. mtchewwww.. Since ur talking is not making sense do something to at least prevent his death when he falls… why is my country slow in everything

    I am sorry to sound insensitive but this chap isn’t trying to commit suicide. He either has a mental challenge of he is just looking for attention. If he was truly trying to kill himself, there are many places he could have done without all this attention. I dont know that many suicidal persons, who would attempt to kill themselves by facing the billboard panel on a pedestrian bridge. Does he want to sniff the chemical on the material to death or plunge down 20ft below into what is not an abyss?
    A mentally disturbed man on pedestrian billboard panel is more the headline than suicide.

    Certainly not the way to go.I believe buried in us are potentials that are yet to be unleashed all we need to do is to discover who we are, what we love,work on it and success will come calling,it might not be immediate but it will come.Go out and seek for opportunities,look for your passion and train on it and you would have succeeded in chasing frustration,lack and want.
    On another thought,there is need for mental health awareness talk.Organizations that are working on mental health should really step up their game as so many Nigerians are really depressed.

    It’s just a pity what people are going through in Nigeria, in the midst of the abundance God has given to us, few are feeding fat while the majority are living in abject poverty.
