    Interesting. Very interesting. Suddenly Facrook is charged. Things are changing gradually.

  • Do we still have FG in this country? Has corruption spared any tissue in their brains? This must be a joke. We’re not excited because at the end of the day, Facrook will be given 3 days in prison or a fine of N150 only. Besides, the case may never see the light of the day. Its business as usual, until when God will send us a Messiah. Our FG is corrupt, and they are shameless. The international community is watching, waiting and laughing at the facade that this is expected to be. I pray they find it entertaining enough.
