  1. Mikel Obi, onye dot ibe'm. I know you love this appointment. Congrats to you!!! One advice to you. Make sure you keep your hands clean and your record intact as not to be rubbished on the long run. Whoever serves the Nigerian government always end up indicted and regretful.

    Never ruin the good name you got for yourself.

    1. like how many teenagers.many of those politicians are suffering from the 'sins' caused by many of you in the virtual space.the many of you rant at politicians eh,if one of them should contact any of you and desire to transfer 1million to your accounts,the way many of you will forget your harsh/spiteful words...odiegwu.but if they happen to forget that same promise to will still forget your joy and revert back to spiteful criticisms.pls,give good advice and forget about those facing indictments.some of you are equally facing same in your churches...albeit silently/unknowingly.#advicelevel#

  3. Congrats to him, one Nigeria. But he should know that his kinsmen are daily slaughtered by this demonic, hateful, genocide hungry regime.
