  • All they ever do is fly abroad for treatment, which means they know we have low standard hospitals in naija.well done politicians instead of working to improve the medical faclities at home, u all run away from ur duties

    • It’s not God’s job to watch Naija’s politicians. Wendy, it is ur job. You cannot delegate it to God. All his flat screen TVs were installed 2000 yrs ago and are not working. They warranty has run out. The people deserve the Gov’t they get. Nigerians fully deserve the crappy gov’t we get, with turn-by-turn electorates. pscheeeeeeeeeew

  • I wish we have a law that forbids all political and government office holders and their Children from flying abroad for treatment,education, etc our hospitals, schools, etc will never receive the attention it deserves.
