  1. Dino melaye have put himself into a gloomy shame, Nigerians need proper and othentic investigation and punishment if found guilty. Nigerians should open their eyes and open their ears on how DSS will scream legislators those that have been accused of curruption ,for 2019 general election.

  2. I think we should raise the bar in the screening of candidates for elections in Nigeria. The criteria beyond the basic constitutional requirements should be published and publicized. The "integrity test" for example needs to be included.
