@Suitzio: “Rather than them after a long consultation, we’ll be connecting with our kin in the coming a long time to know precisely what they need, as it seems Nigeria is floating off kilter. For the present we encourage our kin home and abroad to be quiet and work for the harmony and progress of SE”.
@Stevedameze: “Who are these “Southeast Governors?” Do we truly remember them? I don’t know whether they realize that they don’t represent the Igbos. They’ve lost any believability and a demonstration of majority disapproval has been passed on them. The supposed lead representatives don’t have their very own expression”.
@Nj99625368: “A grown-up needn’t bother with the assent of his parent to turn into a Gay/Lesbian. The supposed Leaders should comprehend that their assent is never required for us to have an alternate political assessment. It’s classified “Right to pick similarly as they have picked which gathering to have a place”.
@KennyAry1: “When was the last time any of our legislators paid attention to the longing of individuals and followed up for their benefit? The if I’m not mistaken these men have been addressing themselves and not their kin. What do you all expect when decisions in dark countries aren’t ‘political race’ yet ‘determination’.
@CharleslyObim0: “This is unimportant. Have they at any point upheld #IPOB #MaziNnamdiKanu. Pioneers that attempted to kill their own child by welcoming the adversaries to kill him and numerous others in his dads compound for the sake of python dance.”
