@aycomedian said:

“It doesn't make sense at all. He came back home with the fullest intentions to serve his father land. Some you here have failed in your various responsibilities in life. Begging money online or expecting others to take care of you is failure. Your inability not to take care of yourselves at Iwobi's age is failure. Coming on line and trolling him is also a result of your failure. If una get work una no go get all the time. Fail fail.”
