  1. Has he learnt any lesson? nobody should be surprised if he goes back to become the governor again. That is Nigeria.

  2. This is one of the corrupt criminal the nation has ever had who stole $250 million from treasury of the oil rich Delta State while serving as governor. It is really shocking to hear of his release from UK prison. This is a man who is suppose to remain in prison for nothing less than 13 years for his high class theft while in office. But what baffles me the most is how some nigerians in some social Media are cheering and jubilating as a result of his released from UK prison.

    This nation will continue to remain backward with this type of mental disposition. It is extremely deplorable to see jubilation among some nigerians who are openly showing full support and backing to this corrupt criminal’s freedom from UK custody. Now the question is,when exactly are we going to be wise in Nigeria? Those who engage in theft either on the streets or market places are often lynched so easily while we tend to rally behind those thieves in government houses who have deprived the masses of their basic needs and development. It is sad to say that the real development we solely desire in this country will still be more than 2 century ahead before realizing it unless we change the level of our reasoning.
