On the other hand we have a man who didn’t not even take pension or gratuity nor did he have any property allocated to himself as governor, save money for the state instead of taking like Tinubu yet some people want to vote him in??! Jesus Christ!"

iam_aloziegeorge wrote in a long post: "Selfishness, wickedness, greed! Nigerians do not love each other! There’s no genuine love between the North & the South. From time immemorial, even before the amalgamation. How can one man be so greedy! Yet, you’re vying for the position of the president after all remunerations that you receive from our commonwealth! No be your papa money oh. Feb 25 will determine how docile we are as a people and if we’re really tired of the suffering and hunger in the land."

"If things go south, I’ll definitely support the reevaluation of this entity called Nigeria. On a final note, teach your kids morals. We can’t afford to repeat the mistake of not educating & teaching our kids right from wrong. This will go a long way in the future Administration of this country when we are no longer here. Remember, charity begins at home."
