  2. Indeed there has not being any other discourse bordering on how to better the lot Nigerians. If half of the energy utilized by the PDP is used in championing needed reforms and institutional frameworks that would leap-frog the development of the country, we would have achieved something tangible in terms of social and economic development. Sad.

  3. The PDP is reputed to be a party of individuals whose common goal is a grand rip-off. They struggle, contend and engage in bitter contest to milk the country. There is virtually no difference between the ‘new’ and ‘old’ PDP. They are hell-bent in finishing our patrimony. Rogues all! Nigerians are more sapient now!
