No substance! Can't boast of a single talent,industry or otherwise. Jollofing with looted money. I bet a ticket cost at least $200,000. Shameless thieves, trying to buy their way mingle with industry achievers. Don't envy their kind..

You're very correct Stan,Nigerian leaders(i mean rulers)are very incapable of tracing where they should start or what to do to make Nigeria a better place.What they know how to do best is to Loot and be at places where they're of no use or any reason to be,instead of taking their time to think,trace and sort out the terrible situation of a country they're ruling.Last time it was with 50cent(what a hell is the wife of a senate president mingling and posing with American musicians,doesn't it sound very odd?)
The president on the other hand keeps on touring the whole world on nigerian Expense,and his wife as well on the other side.These are people who call themselves leaders of a nation when their country is on fire,they're busy touring the whole world and being at places where their presence is irrelivant.smh for Nigeria

To all haters who are pained that Mrs Saraki was invited by the American 1st Family, work hard on a humanitarian cause and see how you too will become relevant globally.

To all alleging that she is spending their money on her travels, did you read/hear that she flew on Official Plane to any event? She is the daughter of the renowned Ojora. Hence, she needs not a dime of yours.

If you can't stand successful people you can simply not read such news or keep your pain bottled up inside you.

Bolaji said...

Ogbeni Capitalism
Firstly, what did Kwara state have that could be milked?
Which authentic and evidence-backed proof do you have on your money laundering allegation?

Envy is a dangerous vice which destroys whoever it indwells.
Gate crash event kooor.........window peep event ni...

Grow up and learn how to post decent comments on Social media cos all these abusive rants ain't benefiting anyone; it only shows your level of jealousy-consumed reasoning.
