“If the world is watching, you should be embarrassed to be a journalist of some description who struggles with basic English vocabulary.”

In 2015 he campaigned for Buhari, expecting a position but got nothing, He cried n sent an open letter to Buhari he was ignored. Since then he has been zuzu.”
@opebanwo wrote: “On this one, I disagree with you my Egbon @DeleMomodu @PeterObi supporters did NOT introduce social media abuses though they will return abuse back to the sender in excess, according to the law of the seed. Buhari’s Sai Baba movement was WORSE. I know because I was there. So stop it, sir.”
