    Some people will be happy with this now, like someone that commented on the fuel situation a few days ago claiming the government needed to include the 24th instead of only 2 days as Christmas break. Reason because Muslims have more holidays than Christians. So somehow it is the government’s fault that you were either born or chose a religion with less holidays and now it’s responsibility to make up for your own choice in religion. Sense of entitlement mixed in with a huge doze of laziness. It is such people Mister man here is catering to. What will traditionalist say to all of these? We are divided as a country because we bring religion and ethnicity into everything. There really needs to be a separation of religion and State may be then we can at least know our struggle is restricted to tribal lines.

    Is this an achievement? The unimaginably silly things Nigerian political leaders….no, looters publicize as accomplishments is embarrassing. Salaries are earned by workers and should be paid MONTHLY!
    Properly paved roads, potable water, functional and adequate health-care etc are the rights of every citizen! Stop flaunting them as your banner of glory!

    So, who will provide essential services for the two weeks that civil servants are on vacation?

    Holy macro. !!! . Who does that? Two weeks holidays for Christmas? You’ve got to be kidding me. Okoroche has certainly lost his bloody mind. IMO State is in a big, big trouble.. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.
