    • Uncle, Nigeria would never become history. Let us pray to God to help us put an end to this menace while taking responsibility and encouraging others to try their best in stopping the spread.

      • What’s the benefit of keeping yourself in something that is not progressing? Don’t you think that Oduduwa Nation will do far better than this backward Nigeria and the same is applicable to every other Nation inside Nigeria…

        Your prayer should go on peaceful disintegration,let’s stop deceiving ourselves and keep on hoping against hope.
