    Welcome Sir. Cut as much grass as you can; Insurance covers you.

    • Suleiman Alatise

      Rather continue to block the ledgislooters from funds access for ghost projects christened constituency projects as did Babachir.

  • Arabakpura

    Babachir Lawal out, his first cousin Boss Mustapha in; Glory be to corruption! Sai Baba Corruption!

    • Kallah Bature

      You too believe the “fake news”being circulated?In any case what is most important to Nigerians is good governance, not government of corruption as was the case with our previous experience with past regimes.We remember the case of DUMBO and his looting sister.

      • Arabakpura

        That’s why we are shouting to forestall the public being taking for granted! The moral of it is that it could have been a negotiated settlement between Buhari and Babachir to stop him from squealing; he had to nominate his cousin! Hope you catch the drift now!
