  1. That father is possessed. God forbid

  2. We all know wher Lagos, ogun and osun allocation fly to

    1. Truly, the state government and some LGA officials are pocketing the allocation remittances to their various states. But that doesn’t mean that some people on the FG levels are not packing up the nations funds. Don’t distract us from the seemingly obvious please.

  3. All passengers in an 18 seater bus were reportedly kidnapped.FG insecurity seem to be on the rise again.

  4. Oga Okupe, kilode naw? This is not good at all.

    What kind of flogging could have led to the death of a 3-year-old? What's wrong with some parents these days? RIP little girl.

    My prayers are with the passengers of the 18-seater bus who were kidnapped in Kogi state. God, please intervene on their behalf.

  5. we see now that if only obi is the good person in his team he can't achieve much ..Nigerians stupidly believe that one man can change Nigeria ... we focus only on president and allow the others run riot and do whatever they like has to be top to bottom or else one calls out LG chairman ,or councillor ..your road I bad you shout Buhari your school is bad you shout Jonathan

  6. Ngige should be sacked.l think he's a hindrance between FG and ASUU settlement.
