It’s only in Nigeria that I will be sent to jail after writing this for saying the truth. But before I proceed to prison, let me remind our people that…

Four years ago, they promised you positive change and better living but ended up impoverishing you, ended up offering you negative changes, If the change they provided was positive, we would have agitated for more and even request for CONSOLIDATION OF THE CHANGE, but NO, they are now ashamed of their own CHANGE and are promising you NEXT LEVEL.

Next level of what?
Sufferings and unemployment, propaganda and blackmails, grand corruption, dictatorship and violations of rule of laws, killings and kidnappings of your children, massacre of farmers and seizure of their farms, closure of universities, hike in petrol, food prices (essential commodities), herdsmen rampage……

Please Nigerians don’t make the same mistake twice for once beaten twice shy.

A Patriotic and selfless Nigerian
