    Thief don catch thief today…she can afford the money its too small for her…if she cant the government can since dey cant provide jobs for the kidnappers well then they can giv them the $1billion dollars to start up a business…“When Obasanjo left office in
    2007, he left $27 billion in excess
    crude account. That money could
    have been used to give us critical
    infrastructure. If you engage $2
    billion to extract electricity from
    Mambilla water, you will employ
    not less than a million people,
    both direct and part-time
    employment. If Obasanjo has
    used $10 billion for modern rail-
    line, it could have engaged over
    10 million Nigerians in the rail-
    line construction only. When it
    starts running, it will engage a lot
    of people because each railway
    station is a new town. “If they
    have used one billion to develop
    coal deposit in Enugu, Benue,
    Kogi and Gombe, it will not only
    produce electricity but it will
    engage over a million people.
    But the corrupt minds of our
    leaders wont allow Nigeria to
    So thats how we get the kidnappers getting back at the government.

      The main kidnappers is the devil, who kidnaps the loves for one another, there by causing hatred, greed’s,killings assassin, terrorism and all others social devises. Not until we all go back to the genue love of God for one another, we are only postponing the evils day.If actually you love her as you love yourself you will not make such a comment, Love covers multitude of sins.
