    All this money are shared to themselves and family. The government keeps saying they have shared this and that and I am yet to recieve a kobo, it’s been almost 4weeks now and nothing yet. When will this corruption end in Nigeria. Some countries have not spent up to the amount Nigeria government claimed to have spent and all their citizens are smiling, observing the lockdown with comfort, here in Nigeria we are still crying for hunger.

    Nigeria politicians do not even think of eternity, they dont think of death. In other countries people join politics to make good names for themselves and to be remembered with, in Nigeria it’s to steal and loot public funds. God will punish all of them, they will account for all this and all their children down to their 10th generations will suffer for the sins of their fathers.
