    Wow wow wow. This government is so deaf. HOw can you campaign on a CHANGE mantra and then continue the status quo?
    No wonder it is a do or die affair. The ‘retirement package’ is enough to set you up for life.
    The other day Obasanjo was talking about corruption, but look at him benefiting from overblown retirement incentives. And This is just one of the many perks they get while Nigerians are hungry. I will be looking out for candidates who will campaign and pledge to eradicate these unnecessary expenses.

    Wretched souls and distasteful men…. you think you are rich whereas you are poor. Living off a country as you have no intelligence whatsoever to build anything..Even the ones you built was from stolen money.. Men who leave poor inheritance to their children because the children will definitely take after their foolishness as they have not been taught better. God will visit you all soon

    i have never been so ashamed to be Nigerian, people are on their death beds begging for donations on social media towards health costs (nobody to airlift them to Germany), kokun of Kokun foundation is trekking the lenght and breadth of Nigeria giving out 5k and food items to the poor,
    Workers have not been paid for months and months
    I am not even sure there is anybody still alive in Benue state.
    They are busy kidnapping doctors in cross rivers state.
    and then we have these ones…………………………………………………
