  1. In other words, they blew hot and swept things under the carpet….smh
    The youths will come for you all one day. The time is getting closer and closer.

  2. Fome you are right. What they should have done is to ask the DAD, IGP ARMY AND OTHER SECURITY AGENCIES WHY THEY DID NOT AND ARE NOT DOUNG THEIR JOBS. IMAGINE IGP CUTTING BIRTHDAY CAJE DURING THIS PERIOD AND NOT EVEN A MILESTONE BIRTHDAY LIKE 60 YEARS!! AGBAYA.

    • @iyabo u think we have IGP, if it’s IDP yes we have, many, buh that IGP seems like a mercenary himself; someone for whom about 19 seniors had to be retired just to make way for his emergence wont he be a card on their hands? Please get your voters card if you haven’t, and ask people around to do same: the voice of the people is getting louder in Naija…
