  1. nigeria has no leaders just a bunch of doomy.one day one of their family members most share from ds boko haram bombing.fellow nigerians take note no one is safe!

  2. It was too much of a coincidence for a transit lorry at the instant of sighting Gov Adam‘s convoy to suddenly lose control and veer off the road heading straight to the Comrade Gov‘s car which escaped head on collision by a hair‘s breath. But still rammed into other vehicles in the convoy and causing casualties.
    Methinks this is a master-minded act of a desperate opposition politician who wants to eliminate the Comrde Gov.
    Fortunately the Gov survived the assassination attempt on his life. But unfortunately 3 journalists were killed instead.
    This dastard act of an accident nust be thoroughly investigated and the culprit and cohorts made to pay through their anus.

  3. Oshimole should go for more prayer because Obasanjo visit is unwelcome one. Le him move quickly before another disaster will happen to him, That blood sucking monster will not suceed

  4. Thank GOD there are stil wondaful youth who use dere brains and eyes.
    The lorry driver should be interrogated cos dere are stil more stories behind dis assasilation planned mission dan just a break failure.

  5. Azazi has said it all. PDP (Peoples Destroyer Party) is behind every crisis and mishap in today’s Nigeria eg reckless killing in d north, assasination attempt on our Comrade. They may deny but we know.
