    Comments from citizens are of no use to those who lead Nigeria.In normal business if you payout an allotment to a regional leader,governor ,district manager ,there must be an audit trail for a feedback.Only in Nigeria is a place where there is no feedback as a apart of the accounting procedure. Right now the senatorial election is being rigged front and back.The leaders are not afraid of going to jail,because there is no jail. See the founder of Boko harem is being considered to chair a major political party. No body seems to show any concern for what is going.The governor of Imo state may have done similar thing several times and nobody cared. He could run for reelection and still will win.Who knows what you will hand over to Nigerian children at the end of the life.As person, I can not share drink or respect any person of that level of behavior.
