    Let’s restructure before Christmas. Tear down the current status quo that is benefiting the parasitic North and enslaving the whole South. All that the South wants is be equal partners in a united Nigeria.

  • Jon

    Does Donald Trump order States to pay salaries? Hell no. That’s why Nigeria needs restructuring so that States can generate their income and develop at their own pace. Hausa/Fulani North is dragging the South down. Tear down this unitary system and devolve power to the states. The South cannot continue to tag along with the parasitic Hausa/Fulani North.

    RESTRUCTURE NOW or De-amalgamate. Choose one – you parasites.

      Do state Governors in the US steal and misappropriate workers’ salaries?

      Expect a barrage of attacks from yorotouts hired by Lair Mohammed. The insolent touts will be led by Kay Soyemi(fake lawyer), also expect @woman_leader1 to join him when he gets low on insults.

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        You posted a clear hour after mine, yet you still have to display your lack of intellect.

        Where is the insult apart from the one between your ears?

        • Otile

          Fake lawyer Kayode Soyemi,
          Is ‘…your lack of intellect’ your own kind of complement? Everybody knows you are an insolent yorotout, if I did not pre-empt you, you would drag @woman_leader1 and other touts to join you and poo poo the atmosphere.

    They will not pay. But they will turn round later to blame Buhari for their recalcitrance.

    Not paying workers their entitlement due for them, to me it is a great disservice by the governors. Let watch,they will squander, divert and mismanage the fund. Nigerian workers are in soup. May Allah assist our leaders

  • Buharin daji

    Please someone tell me who cursed Nigeria that we are still fetching water from a tao with a basket full of hole’s…how would you give 35 thieves money to pay civil servants when you know too well they have embezzled the first and second tranche
