    This is one of the reasons why every Nigerian should shun the reign of P.D.P. Insecurity may continue to dance around the nation as long as unpatriotic elements remain in the mantle of power. Nigeria head is prolifically ill. With the help of almighty Allah and sentiment free vote that will stop this nonsense.

    OBJ was at EDO state to see Gov Oshiomole in private. Oshiomole did not disclose the reason/out come of the PDP/ACN meeting. It looks like he has forgotten about the mystery of the murder of Bole Ige and Dele Giwa. Keep off from all PDP Boko haram people everywhere.
