AY told us to keep the same energy we used against Funke Akindele and husband, for throwing a house party in the lockdown. Over hundred people went to Abba Kyari burial in Abuja without exercising social distance, but seems the authorities are now blind and courts closed. Smh

Everyone that attend Abba Kyari burial should also face the same punishment as Funke Akindele for not observing social distancing.
But the question here is who will arrest the Government? 💀

Funke akindele Got prosecuted for not observing social Distancing for a party not more than 50pple. But at Abba kyari's burial the whole north gathered there and it's not an offence cos its a burial.
The Government is our number 1 problem in this country 🤡

Funke akindele is trending cos politicians gathered at the burial of Abba kyari and are practicing zero social distance.
Think about it from this angle; if the virus spreads to all of them present there then that's a wipe out of some % of corrupt politicians!
Isn't that good?
