  • Spoken word

    If they like they can go ahead and impeach all the APC governors and have a one party country. Then PDP will not have any excuses for their abject failure in this country.

    • Uju

      Impeachment is a legal means to topple an elected office holder when he goes astray. Al-Makura should face the panel if he feels his hands are clean . . . . . . but no, he would rather take to propaganda because he has loads of skeletons in his cupboard

      • John green

        Jonathan Is using such to save his own skeleton after long looting from his own end without any justification but pardoning series of looters in this nation. If people should start judging and crucifying, it shouldn’t be PDP whom have brought this nation to it knee

      • donwei

      • John green

        You are confused guy who should be ignored because you are just a pig boy been played by PDP to come and cause confusion online. Your party will soon weep for the tsunami that will soon fall on them comes 2015. GEJ has no way again

    • Mck

      What do you think impunity means. The state assembly is exploring constitutional means to impeach the governor and you are there shouting, or whispering impunity.

    • Psalm 35

      Impunity ? Your brothers record has not yet being broken yet even though your brother was impeaching with 6 members against 21 like he did to Joshua Dariye and DSP Alamieyieseigha

  • Moses Musa

    Let the Governor answer them to the best of his ability, if they are dissatisfied let them go ahead, dais God oo

    • John green

      The worst is about to hit PDP in 2015, they believe what they are doing now will save their head but obviously it won’t because people are more wise conpear to the goodname been used to decieved the common man

  • John Matthew


    • Spoken word

  • Integrity group

    Nigeria oh Nigeria…
    They have ripped you apart
    All in the name of money politics
    Where did we get it all wrong?
    Was it the foundation?
    How can we remedy the situation?
    How can the common man in Nigeria find his voice?
    The elite class has perfected a plan to keep the ordinary Nigerian in poverty…while they share our common wealth.
    How can the ordinary Nigerian understand his rights without quality education?
    How can a common man vote according to his conscience when he can’t afford a half bag of rice?

    It is a simple plan by the elite to keep majority of the citizens uneducated and poor so that they could continue to remain relevant in the society

    May God heal Nigeria

    The well deserved political tsunami against apc is just gathering steam and they are crying! What will they do when it peaks?

    • Psalm 35

      When it peaks ? They will go into oblivion, let me paint a picture: – Under the cover of darkness,vermin congregate under dark alley ways,holes,pits and all sorts of hidden platforms but when light is shone into their midst they all especially the rats and cockroaches run for cover.That is the powerful effect of light and light has been shone bright into the darkness called apc
