  1. OBJ, Are you OK?
    Have you ever visited any part of KOGI to see the lack of development of that state?

  2. Bello’s abysmal record as governor is being touted as commendable? The guy who owed civil servants salaries for more than six months and had to be helped across the gubernatorial cross-line with emergency bailout funds is suddenly a presidential potential? What a sick place!

  3. Why not open the door? Re you guys gays? Abeg, nothing is secret ion Nigeria. Governor Bello went to dash Baba something. And Baba himself thank him. Shekina!
