  1. One of the clownish jokers. I had earlier classified all these petty political businesses into groups and you can go back and check how my prediction and opinions over these non SERIOUS goons treats with levity the highest office in Nigeria.

    ANY MORE WONDER WHY ASUU IS STILL ON STRIKE WITH THE FUTURE OF NIGERIA STUDENTS IN JEOPARDY. WITH THESE KIND AND MANNERS OF CLUELESS IN CHARGE OF ANY NIGERIAN AFFAIRS.

    More obnoxious CLUELESS idiots will still reveal their most ill personalities, trust me. Because their are still more foul senses attempting to take us on another PURPOSELESS ride. Taking us for fool’s.

    Meanwhile they stand in the way of purposeful people who mean business for serious governance for the good of the people and the country.

    Chris Ngige is a clown and a disappointment and the people of Anambra may have been justified in attempting to oust him from office by a mob cum jungle approach.

    PEOPLE LIKE Chris Ngige DO NOT DESERVE ANYWHERE NEAR ANY OFFICE THAT OVERSEES NIGERIAN AFFAIRS.

    Good riddance of bad rubbish out of our lives, when he resigned from the cabinet.
