  1. End time doctor, how can you be drunk while on duty, I pray the newborns get justice.

    The hausas are very cunny and know their way around politics, the Yorubas should watch their back.

  2. Any evidence for the alleged plot? Such an accusation can cause the country ti be further divided more than it already is

  3. Bad news everywhere. *sipping my orobo coke*

  4. I will not stop praying for this country cos truly Nigeria needs help.politicians who are suppose to let the youths lead are so greedy despite their health condition,they still want to rule a country as populated as this

  5. Stella Chelsea have parted ways with head coach Thomas Tuchel as a result of that match and their poor start to the season.
