Foolish oyibo. Foreigners r taking over their land and they r all watching just because they prefer to give birth to one or none at all. Let's watch it, US will elect a Muslim president soon. Meanwhile congrats on to my Nigerian sisters

Everyone is happy. Congratulations to them. They are ambassadors. They are Nigerians but are big influences in Britain. Which one of them would have won a seat in a state house of assembly. Do not talk of the Senate, non of them would scale through . So we see. That we are the architects of our misfortune. We cannot impregnate a goat and expect it to give birth to a cow..
