  1. Since the day Tinubu made Lagos state his empire.

    It’s always fire outbreaks from one market to another.

    Whichever market that was engulfed in flames automatically becomes Tinubu’s unending property.

    Wherever you see calamities, Tinubu sees opportunities.

    Certainly, if there’s a beneficiary of fire outbreaks in Lagos markets, pointedly, there’s a motivation for arson.

    The Police in Nigeria are so useless they couldn’t effectively conduct investigations that could nail any high profile politician.

    What a country Nigeria has become under clueless and clannish Buhari.

    What a country. I take a stroll. Nonsense.
