    Oga…go straight to the point and tell us what you are contesting for. I only famously remember him for this comments “The governor began to make very damaging public allegations against the government… allegations that have not been proven, after the president had sent him a presidential query about the finances of the central bank. The government has given a reason for the suspension and that was… to enable an investigation into the allegations against him.”

    Chai, BN i posted a comment and it appeared immediately
    this is unbelievable

    A call out to you guys…You dont have the right to censor anything in a public discourse
    Diversities of opinion is what brings out the truth, the ugly, the good, the bitter and the hidden secrets

    Allow people drop their opinions and stop censoring
    it is actually rude and a waste of time for me to buy data, visit your page, read articles, type comments ..only for it not to be allowed

    This is 2018 o, CHANGE
