  1. Bribing senators to approve the huge budget is out of order.
    This is Okorocha last tenure, I hope he will not ruin the state for them

  2. Bribing the legislature to approve his budget have some sinister motive behind it. I hope it is not for them to look the other way for him to steal the State treasury. It is now obvious that those who govern Nigeria go there to steal not to do the job of the people.

  3. That money will syphoned to okorochas Goldman Sachs American bank account but don’t you worry as trump will be waiting because all Nigerian money in USA account owned by politicians in Nigeria mr trump is going teach them a lesson that the never forget!!!!!!
