    1. God please deliver Nigeria from this daily bad news oooo. my tired is tired

  2. NANS carried out their threat after all. The govt should better do the needful before this whole thing gets out of hand.

    1. Only when it affects the politicians directly, that's the only time one will see them running kitikata to solve the issue.
      Bakers threatened strike, e no affect them. Today, bread na rich man snack.
      Water cooperation threatened strike, e no affect them. today, even pure water is now luxury.
      Periodic rise in inflation no even concern them, for the fact that they still control their corruption links and the money keeps entering their accounts. To them, the poor can go to hell.

      Our only hope now is Peter Obi taking over come 2023!!!

  3. #calloffasuustrike, there's also news of undergraduates blocking the road leading to the airport. Come and see people trekking to the entrance, area boys help carry boxes for a token; no be small thing.
