  3. Sometimes i feel that most of the news about Nigeria are out just to make people think that government is working but in reality,things are standstill.

    Nigerians don’t want to be hearing about this arresting and bailing, we want action on execution of corrupt officials or life jail term.

  4. W’v tired of all these lie-lie, government is claiming they are retriving money yet they still want to borrow, he shouldnt be they reserved embestle money for 2019 campaing
