    Am glad that the operation went well.
    Wishing you and the rest victim a speedy recovery
    To Fayose and his cohort. Your plans to eliminate the opposition member in Ekiti has failed.
    I heard Fayose was blaming the opposition member for sponsoring the hit man. How could anyone in his right sence make such a derogatory comments?

    At least we know that nobody is ever desperate to be a servant. It is always about looting the treasury. Thank God for your life Mr Bamidele that your life wasnt sacrificed on the altar of madness

    Why was he not flown abroad? If they like they should continue to owe workers, any Government that owes is a complete failure. Even if the salary is not much, let it be paid as at when due.Wishing him a speedy recovery.
