  • Malik Isah

    38 billion naira could have built more that 5 cancer treatment centres in Nigeria and would have benefited everyone in need.

    • CeeCee1818

      How selfish some people are! To think a woman who should be motherly and sensitive to suffering of children in the country! Shame shame shame!

      • Malik Isah

        na wah o, soo very callous, now she wants sympathy and sadly, some people will cheerfully give her

    …once I prayed a prayer on this forum that any alien who has stolen even a kobo from my Niger Delta resources whoever they may be and from whatever tribe, should be afflicted with Cancer of the throat, eat, breast, broukous, stomach, eyes, legs, liver, heart, Kidney, hands, neck, back, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, inner left abdomen, inner right abdomen, upper and lower jaws, small and large intestines etc.

    I rejoice for answered prayers. One Police officer already down from India and 6 feet below. One down in London and seeking INDEFINITE sick leave…and now another on d..th row. There is progress my people. let us increase the prayers and let our God who answers the prayers of the poor ans oppressed rain down incurable diseases and afflictions on these heathen who parade themselves as public servants who run away from the hospitals you and I attend to seek treatment abroad. May they all never return alive becos we who are here are confined to die in our poorly equipped hospitals. They wish us death, so I wish them same. It is 1 – 1 goalless draw.

    • CeeCee1818

      Karma is a *itch! She’s getting paid back by cancer!

      • think2Wice

        Are you with me or against me? U no have no WAEC certificate in English grammar.

        • CeeCee1818

          I’m agreeing with you, they steal and get paid back by cancer! Sorry I should have been clearer.

    • linkhadj.

      I was told that your Bible says whatever you wish for others will become yours. Wishing anybody evil is not Islamic. So receive your wishes in Jesus name. Somebody shout Amen!

  • CeeCee1818

    Whenever they’re caught they get inflicted with cancer, boggles the mind.

  • Dogo

    Like useless president like APC politician. Why not die in the Nigerian hospitals that the rest 190 million Nigerians attend?

  • Ayobami001

    Cut off the breast. That’s all!

      Oga Surgeon is N38 billion do for the job? Very funny 🙂

  • CeeCee1818

    What’s FFK’s role in this? The guy is always in some kind of trouble, not a year goes by.

    • Dagashhh

      I thought you claimed sometime ago that you are a South African but you sound more like one ogbologbo from Agege. Could it be that you are from the South Africa near Apapa….. the one they call Soweto Avenue.

    • Say the truth

      Good that you ask that question. This people are just obsessed with FFK name. His name has become the tool to sell papers shame.

  • Nkem

    This woman and Fani-Kayode recruited a group of young people (about 20 of them),to work for the Jonathan campaign office. In the end they refused to pay them. How much? The money all put together was just about 2 million total. They came to me to help them tell their story in the media. I was there the day the poor young men and women were begging Nenadi on their knees for their six weeks hard earned wages. But, no, the greedy woman would not budge. By that time FFK had taken off with his own share of the loot to his hideout somewhere in Asokoro.
    WICKED people!

  • Du Covenant

    We should not allow these people continue to insult our intelligence. Too bad she now has cancer, let her go through what Nigeria has to offer its citizens in terms of healthcare services. Many more of our citizens live and experience the harshness of our healthcare system, why should the same people who created such terrible conditions for all of use be given different treatment?. I am for Nigeria to create a cancer fund where every citizen struck by such illness should be flown abroad for treatment no matter how down trodden one is, we are all citizens of the same country!. As we know cancer affects all regardless of how highly placed you are in a society. She should never be allowed to go out of Nigeria for any treatment, let her die like other Nigerians do on a daily basis!!.

    • share Idea

      Did you suggest same for your president that is in UK

      • Du Covenant

        No, because the current President is a man of integrity and is the only man standing in Nigeria today with the guts to fight corruption. Can’t you feel the conspiracy of silence in the air especially from the governors, senators, local government chairmen etc?. Why is that, the fight against corruption is only fought at the federal level?. If not for Buhari would Nigerians ever had known how public funds were shared among the so called elite?. Do you really believe Nigeria was brought to its knees by the current administration?, can you honestly look yourself in the mirror and say yes?. I know what our fellow citizens go through in the current healthcare system in Nigeria, how comes every high profile thief caught in Nigeria suddenly has one ailment or the other that needs treatment abroad?.

        • share Idea

          According to you Buhari is fighting corruption by clearing indicted SGF and Magu. Please keep deceiving yourself if you think this administration is fighting corruption

          • tundemash

            ShareDunce, who indicted SGF and Magu ?

          • share Idea

            The SSS report that your demi-god used to raid judges houses also indicted Magu while Senate report is in public domain.

          • tundemash

            Mor0n, is SSS superior to the C-in-C. You are so d@ft !

          • Du Covenant

            I did not want to respond to you but…… It is really unfortunate you fabricate stories because Nigerians are generally too lazy to think and look for correct information. None of these individuals have been indicted for anything to the best of my knowledge so far. To clarify, it is only Buhari that has the guts to fight corruption in Nigeria today this is why he is trying his best at the federal level while the other two level have conspired to stay mute on this issue because if you are a true Nigerian, you know what our governors and LG chairmen do. I strongly believe in Buhari’s integrity considering the positions this man has held in the country. I cannot say the same for the other members of his cabinet. It says volume about Nigeria that despite Buhari’s attempt to get a few good men and women to join him and manage the country better for once since independence!. It si so terribly sad this is why I have no sympathy whatsoever to this woman with clouds over her head to allow her to go for any treatment abroad. Let her die in Nigeria, many of our fellow citizens die daily for no fault of their own but for those who squandered our commonwealth in the reckless manner not seen anywhere in the world!.

  • Otile

    Imam Buhari cannot demand indefinite extension of medical vacation in an undisclosed location. If he is incapable of doing the job let him resign, Nigeria cannot continue to go downhill because Buhari.
