It’s Dementia – Nigerian Actress, Joke Silva Speaks On Olu Jacobs’ Illness
Someone somewhere is turning the screw on this guys... Recently, all the hard-core self acclaimed first class citizens are now talking about equality. Hmm,somehow. It's either they're up to no good or someone is stepping on their 'nepotinistic' ideology Rubbish! Nigeria belongs to the colonial powers who created Nigeria and have exploited it ever since with the help and support of colonial agents such as Tambuwal. That is the simple truth, the fundamental reality which Tambuwal must hide or obscure to protect his elite status.
The actions need to speak it out not voice all the time. I am always astounished by the comments from the Northern Governors on Federalism and comments such as Tambuwal it reminds me of Aesop fable The Ant and the Grasshopper.Moral lessons about the virtues of hard work and planning for the future!! In an ideal situation, True! But not what we have today.
