    Joe, God bless you my brother for your piece on this mad man who has no brain, who is a thug like fani kayode and his father during the Western Region crises, fayose is not a human being but a lower animal who deserves to live in the bush with wild animals, the evil boy called fayose knows that when GMB becomes President, he will be impeached and will go and live with wild animals in the thick forest of Ekiti. jonathan is the cause of fayose having relevance because he knew that fayose is under indictment by EFCC and while his case was going on, they plugged him to run for the governorship. This is another failed policy of jonathan and pdp who continues to shield criminals and bring them back. jonathan and pdp deserves no mercy come March 28th and April 11th because they have criminalized government and governance. GMB AND APC ALL THE WAY IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

    I doubt if Joe igbokwe is in any position to determine who needs to see a psychiatrist or not,bcos reading thru his write up and the earlier comments before mine, I dare say that all of you are the same as their is difference btw 6 and half a dozen,whatever Gov fayose is doing is a game Mr igbokwe and Lai Muhammed are well versed in.they have used and are still using every unpardonable adjective in the dictionary to commit sedition and denigrate the office of the pre. For me as a rights activist it’s never been about GEJ but about the lack of regard and any sense of decorum for the office of the President of nigeria,must u insult the office of the President to Marshall Your points,as far as I am concerned they started the macabre dance of madness so they have continued together with Gov fayose so they should continue,no wonder some semi imbecile lawmaker from south Africa had the effrontery to insult the prez,he had indirectly insulted Nigeria. Whatever has been started now will not end even if GMB gets into Power,and let’s hope he will take it quietly like GEJ but aftermath is that the office of the prez and Nigeria as a corporate entity will continuously suffer the brunt from the rest of the world. You can’t keep saying what u like bcos TALK IS CHEAP
