  1. ...see how them dey create poverty. Na mass wedding go provide for the family needs or for the children's upkeep? See clueless people! This is why poverty will remain endemic in many parts of the north. It is a pity!

  2. Hope the government will continue to feed them. These people from the North are complete parasite. all they do is consume and waste as if there is no tomorrow yet they come out to talk trash. if only this country will go back to the principle of derivations, we will know if this their madness will continue. The other day one sent out bids for the building of mosques.
