    This country Nigeria is weird. Nothing has changed. How many times the FG,led delegations to one or the other part of the country on a condolence visit.To add insult to injury them delegation will arrive well dressed,nice very expensive shoes,suits, agbada), etc etc …….
    The situation in Nigeria is like a roller coaster, then afterwards another killing,kidnapping will happen,the FG will send not the senate president as being done now, the speaker of the house on another visit, it goes on and on, …. it’s a disgrace.
