  1. How much is she giving to them. Go to her home town Okirika and see poverty and squalor and she has thirty something million dollar for medication. Don't you know what we are talking here, she is one of those who milk Nigeria dry. There is God ooo.

  3. When Jonathan was eating & drinking with the former minister of federal capital Abuja we warn him to remember what happen to General Ironsi. His trust, and carefree to the north and that will consume. He gave them power like a f**l instead of restructuring the nation. He wants to answer good boy. Now buhari is about to rubbish your wife / ur govt and leaving those behind. When u are president u treated them with golden hands, acting like a f**l. Now they are after u, leaving the other head of states. Let those criminals around u from the north come out and talk. Your regret for life.
