  1. After giving all the key and sensitive posts ‎to his kinsmen and close friends from the parasitic north, he is now applying fulani divide and rule tactics by handing out crumbs to his minions and idiotic followers from the south.‎
    Tinubu,you see your life?

    • You are still basking in the old ways! Which position is crumbs and which one is juicy? You guys are the ones who encourage looting of the treasury! You better wake-up!

  2. I wish wailers will embrace farming to keep them busy.
    Okoroawusa is leading the way by declaring 2 work free days every week so that Civil servants can have time to Farm.
