  • The party PDP has a way of dealing with its party members when dey err.for ex-governor of bayelsa state,dis is just d beginning.no one perso is bigger than d system dat brought dem in.

  • Why Nigerians are like this? Why can’t we change 4 better? Why does the people who called themselves our political leaders can’t change 4 better. Does this system really reflects on the so called ‘transformation agendas’ by the president? This ex-governor is brought us now simply because he no longer dine and wine wit the president. How come the lootings dat goes on everyday even in the face of those who pretends to be the prosecutors are not made mention to the public how much more to prosecute them? The #1trillion that waz smuggled into the 2012 budget, where is it and where are the the people involved in this act. Maybe efcc is instituted against some political opponents. The ex-governor shuld face the judgement of his crime. But let there be high level maturity and impartiality in our actions in the country. The poor masses are really dying because of the mismanagements and lootings in the land.
