  1. Trying to reap from where we didn't sow. PMB made us an offer of 2023 presidency by supporting his 2nd term bid which we rejected. We are simply what we are. We voted PDP cos we don't believe in PMB. And now we are making demands. We shouldn't expect to sow cassava and harvest Grains. We are in no position to make demands. Rather we pray that he includes us in scheme of things. God bless Nigeria.

    1. I totally agree with you.. Igbos keep making the same mistake every four years
