“The kind of leaders we have in Nigeria. They can not upgrade the hospitals in the country, instead, they go abroad for medical treatment with the taxpayers' money and allow Nigerians to die for lack of good medical treatment. It shows how much they love their country and the citizens.”

“London is where they go for medical attention even if they have headaches. Remember the president is equally there. All their children are there either for education or for medical reasons. Yet you and I are here shouting their praises, fighting each other on social media over their suitability to rule this country.”
