In reaction, @Raylegend121 wrote; I commend your kind gesture. But how on earth possible that a newly appointed SSA is moving around with 2 jeeps with one worth over $50million naira?
@OfficialAWO1; Little things matter. Imagine if this is done every three months by different SSAs or government appointees, the level of poverty and hunger will gradually reduce. Our society is crime-proned because of hunger. May Allah reward you accordingly. Amin. Even if na the governor give you to use for this journey you for turn down the offer and choose smaller vehicles.
@IfeLove42552937; If you get plan to fight this guy or do jazz against am, you better have a rethink today. Because you see those people wey just pray for him, na God dey always fight their battles. If you fight their benefactor, you fit lose your life o. My two cents 🙇🏾
@gbaskkii; Special adviser my foot. Nigerian government is so unnecessarily wasteful. Where I live even the prime minister does not have a special adviser. He has a red and blue light lol.
