    our trust and hope should be in God and not man. Fashola is trying and should continue the good work; and he should provide an alternative accommodation for the displaced. No matter what, these people are human being and their children too constitute the future generation of this country Nigeria.

    o God help your poor children, by using the Government to help them look at the little suffering innocent children. Those children you see there who knows they are the potential leaders of the nations, why not save them today to avoid the violent they will cause tomorrow because of what they passed through. May God help us and help our Government. Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    This is quite pathetic. The government should endeavour to provide an alternative. Please let’s think more of those small children. God bless Gov. Babatunde Raji Fashola for providing a succor. I’ve always believe in him.
