  1. All southerners and northern Christians! But if it were an appointment, you'll hear Sanusi, Mohammed, Muazu,etc.
    Nigerians never know wetin dey jam yet. Mr Lifeless is worse than Satan. Worse than all demons packed together. This ride is just starting. By the time this guy is done with us, all the people that facilitated his coming to power will be forced to engage in Seppuku out of shame.

    1. You noticed also.

      May Their souls Rest In Peace (and seek vengeance on whom so ever is behind this). I’m sorry but this is going to be part of my prayer point going forward.

    2. Hmmmmmmm!
      And I thought I was being insensitive.
      Thank goodness, my gut feeling wasn't wrong at all.

  2. ACM adewale was going to get married just next month😭

    1. Piyo was my childhood friend, before he joined the service.
      When I saw 'RIP' on our friend's status yesterday, I couldn't believe it.
      Can't even believe I'm using 'was' for him now🀦🏾‍♀️
