  1. This man is just being problematic. Why not verify their appointment processes and carry out other due diligence . Why all this power play??? Unnecessary!

    1. Didn't you read where it was stated that a committe setup by the past administration gave the resolution that led to the Relieving of the workers. Go and read again

    2. Then hire them back legally. Or does the governor wants to turn the affected employees to hoodlums?

  2. If it were possible, this man would erase Rochas family from the face of the earth.

  3. The Charles Orie! Hmm!! Hope is now going after Rochas daily and weekly.

  4. This Governor hates Rocha's like say tomorrow no dey.

    1. He too will leave power one day. Maybe his successor will jail him.... what goes around comes around kapish
