  3. He's not representing his people in Nigeria. He's a British citizen which is why he could even contest election. Its not a global parliament where people represent others. Nigerians can jump on success anyhow🤣 A bike Dabiri, always quick to embarrass these "former" Nigerian citizens. People like her won't ever give people like this a chance back home.
