    1. Mtcheeeeeeeeeeeew, what you could not give them when they were alive.

  2. Money cannot and will never replace a family member, may God grant them all the heart to bear their lost.

  3. Back then in 2004, I.G Taffa Balogun gifted my mum and other widows a million naira each. Although no amount can replace the dead but the money went a looooooong way, ensuring my sisters and I did not drop out of school.
    Congratulations to these ones jare
    Who no go no know

  4. That money is so small... That means each family cannot get up to 1.1m... and things are so hard today..

  5. Very welcome development. It won't bring back the lost loved ones but it will go a long way in these harsh times.

  6. It's quite commendable. A few needs will be met at least. God will comfort the bereaved

  7. In the wake of accusations and counter accusations of Police officers offering bribe to get promoted to the next rank. Wrong?
    Damage control. Wrong?
    I hope this one here is true. Right? 🙄
