    With all the oil money they steal and amass, they still die? Why won’t others learn that nobody lives forever, and do something tangible for the country, instead of hopping on the train wreck? I have no sympathy for people who had/have no sympathy for the poor, helpless, hopeless, voiceless, masses of Nigeria, who have suffered heavily under the burden of their institutionalized corruption. They can die fifty times over, for all I care!
