Hmmm. The guy will rest from bashing the president. Let's see if the system will not change and swallow you too. Some much criticism about other people, Mr Tolu, can you make a difference. Time will tell.

I am happy for the recognition of his talent. But honestly I would have preferred he doesn't entangle himself in Nigerian politics.

Four Media Advisers/Assistants, NO Chief Economic Adviser. No wonder propaganda is up and the economy is down! Mr. President, get economic advisers. You need them more than you need propaganda! Media Advisers

Anonymous said...

He is Getting More Media Advisers Because he has to Keep the Propaganda going which is what most Foolish Gullible Nigerians want to be Hearing. Which is how he got Here in the First Place. #FakeJournalism, #SouthWestPropaganda, #FakeSouthWestActivism.
