  1. @oluwafemi u are a bit ignorant of the iss on ground:
    Kogi governor RULES everyone in his state, even the police commisioner. Abi u didnt hear the he turned back the newly postes CP and IG had to retain the old, his paddy??
    Dino knows there are instructions waiting to be carried out in the cell.

    He has to survive first before we talk of court.

    With politicians there’s always more than meets the eye but I stand with Dino this time


  2. Nigeria don finish.. when we tell politicians to develop infrastructure dem no go listen.. see a whole senator on ‘wheel barrow’ All these guys don’t realise that ‘na everybody e go touch one way or another’ you can be greedy all you want but eventually your greed will catch up with you and you will pay for your misdeeds.
