  • Fellow cross riverians, i wanna use these medium to implore all well meaning Naijas the appreciate the Lord God Almighty for His goodness towards us during the passed general elections. For enabling us violence-free-election. May His Name be praise.

  • Imoke should pay up salaries n allowances of workers…..so we can complete our courses n leave the university for him to run. It would be a shame coupled with disgrace to be a PDP leader of no heart for the people. There is nothing he has done that people has felt immensely. I pray for health for him because the cry of the workers is on his HEAD.
