In the end, after all is said and done, Buhari, Saraki, Dogara, Ekweremadu, Kwankwaso, Tinubu, Oshiomhole, insert-name-here…will all remain billionaires. How much do you have in your 3 accounts combined. Use your brain people!

Don’t get carried away by all these defections. APC and PDP don’t care about us. Just look at the state of the country. It’s not only Buhari that messed up, it’s your senator, house of rep member, Governor even LG chairman. They all screwed us
