Corruption in the North and south

You forgot Peter Odili so soon. in the course of defending Nigeria we should not be bias. All the Governors in the SS and council members are thieves using NDDC as a magnet. No roads, no health care, no proper learning facilities at the watersides yet the SS collect fat allocations as oil producing states.
I urged the youths in the SS to go after their leaders for eating on their heads instead of imbacilitingly complaining about the North while must cannot not pay thier children school fees.

INVESTIGATE FORMER OKENE LG CHAIRMAN, ALH. YAHAYA KARAKU

Alh.Yahaya Karaku looted and committed a lot of crime during his tenure and after he left office. He was the brain behind the two soldier that was killed by unknown gunmen in Okene having killed about twenty christain worshippers in Otite area of Okehi local government,as a device to distract the security operative from the main town. Karaku's case with EFCC has not be resolve but he has promise of buying his way out.

Our judiciary has been

Our judiciary has been compromised. More than 50% of our judges are corrupt.

CORRUPTION HAS HEAD IF THE HEAD IS CORRUPT THE REST OF THE BODY.

Corruption in Nigeria is in its highest pick which involved all, we of Christ Commanders have to find out the head of corruption and uprooted it. If the Churches and Muslims are corrupt them being the head of God and his Word even from Rome to Saudi Arabia, England and USA. Who is Nigeria to stop corruption without the true study of Christ. There must be a Change of Head, Word and Faith. We are operating under the power of the Father with Baptism of fire on the head which is power of head knowledge and Madness of the Prophets and 24 Elders of Israel and Arabs(Rev 5:9,10)The Universe of ideology of idealistic which killed the power of the spirit and truth. From knowledge in the Book of Revelation 12 Chapter, the true Christ The Son of Woman was a refugee in the house of God, like Moses in the house of Pharaoh. Is this true Christ not Christ of Africa of equal rights and grace?

Nigeria a "1st Class Honors" in Corruption Nation

Sometimes I wonder what I am doing abroad. When I look at the people running the country dry financially, I wonder if they can even read the alphabets A-Z but they do know how to steal in a big way.

DAGURMA SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED

EFCC SHOULD VISIT OKEHI LGA OF KOGI STATE AND SEE THE LEVEL AT WHICH THE FORMER CHAIRMAN LOOTED AND SQUANDERD ALL D FUND ALLOCATED TO HIM DURING HIS TENURE. HIS NAME IS ABUBAKAR ZUBAIR A.K.A DAGURMA

EFCC SHOULD VISIT OKEHI

EFCC SHOULD VISIT FOMER OKEHI LOCAL GOVERMENT CHAIRMAN ABUBAKAR ZUBAIR ADAGU OF KOGI STATE AND C THE HIGEST DEGREE OF LOOTING

The rate of corruption in d

The rate of corruption in d country is so high and untill the proposed capital punishment is promulgated corruption will continue in the country.

SH.....Investigate Obasanjo farms & his scams

SH.....Investigate Obasanjo farms & his scams.

You will be amazed how big a rogue the continent of Nigeria has in that Ottv chimp.

So SH has finally moved from Warri to Northern countries

Ok.

Now, I am aware that all northern states spend over 5mgamonthly on abattoir maintenance. Maybe SH can investigate Katsina, Gombe, Nassarawa, Sokoto,Kano,Zamfara, Kebbi & Northern Kaduna. These poor countries embezzle the oil money from my SS & SE to buy Honda cars & marry new wives as well as patronizing the ashewos at pubs under cover of darkness.

What do the countries of the North contribute to continent Nigeria? Just name one thing they contribute? Here are the only ones I can find:
1. Corruptn eg IBB, abdulsalami, Farouk,Suntai etc
2. Terrorist eg Buhari, BH, Senator terrorists etc
3. Riots e.g killing of christains, burning of chu
4. Killing of Corpers
5. Filling up Lagos, PH & Warri with beggars

Verily verily I say unto you, Nigeria is not a country but a continent.

Long live the United States of the SS & SE

Sure, How About OBJ And Co.?

AS usual, they will go after the small fish. EFCC, what about Abudsalam Abubakar, Mr. Obasanjo, "Dr." Orji Uzor Kalu, Lawal Farruk, Mr. Bankole, etc. Go after these men if one has to take you serious.
