    Some governors have no liver to change their cabinet since they came on board in May 2011, for purely selfish reasons

  • Danlami

    …..very soon the governor too will be changed.

  • Foresight

    Only four more months left for the governor to be sacked as well by Nasarawa people

  • Foresight

    Do you remember the Hon. Innocent Lagi that jumped over the House Of Assembly’s fence to serve a court notice to House Members in his desperate attempt to save the governor? He has been fired by the governor! Lesson: Do not serve the devil; for the devil does not reward his faithful servants

    Majority of readers may not be able to understand my contribution. It is not for every Jack and Harry. It for those “who he foreknew …” There indeed are some people chosen to come out of carnal and worldly systems like politics and religions – especially as organized by the global elites. They will see the Testimony of incorruptibility – i. e. if they come out of those systems.. That Testimony is the Divine point of contact for raising up a new creation headed by the Lamb of the Almighty Creator, the Resurrection and the Life.
