  • The Revolutionary

    Where else will be set on fire if not the accounts office?
    Stealing is the problem with Nigeria – and, stealing is addictive.
    Until a deadly force is deployed by a revolutionary group,
    to seize all stolen wealth in Nigeria and kill off the official thieves,
    Nigeria will keep going through the motions without any progress.

    This is why most of these ‘uncivil servant’ and top ‘government non-functionaries’ will fight tooth and nail against computerization of their processes. They always say ‘we are not ready for that yet, we need to put measures in place first’. Oh, these are the measures.

    Whenever there’s fire incident in government agencies, it ll either start from 3rd floor or fourth. Why? I wanna know. Why not ground floor

    They have burnt the place simply in order to cover their tracks. The fingers would be pointed to the two cousins that are fighting over that office (Maigari and Umeh). That’s always what you get when cousins are fighting, Fact! 1. In Nigeria: Hausas and Igbos 2. In the middle east: Arabs and Jews 3.During worlds 1 & 2: Germans and the Anglo-franco europe
