    It is no longer a news to all Nigerian that former President Goodluck Jonathan gave Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, $37m( N4.7bn ) cash to prosecute the June 21, 2014, governorship election in the state.
    It is a news that Jonathan was facilitate the Rigging of Election in Ekiti state. This is what Nigerians should expect when a mumu is the President of a Zoo nation called Nigeria.
    Nothing will happen nor anything come out of it.This is Nigeria.High court Judges that will hear the case have all been bribed before case will be heard like that of Wike of Rivers state

    The desperation of some Nigerian politicians is so unthinkable. I belief Aluko is frustrated because of the past. My question is why now
