Oga chief of staff of kogi state, we are all working for our daily bread too and taking giant strides too. Our strides are even bigger because we are surviving despite whatnyou and your cohorts have turned the nation into. Leave matter for Matthias and ask ur boss to pay ur people their salaries instead of talking nonsense over the media!
