Reactions From some Nigerians:
Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu isn’t renamed “Billboard Governor” for no reason, as he only performs in billboards – here is one put up for his daughters’ wedding today. Publicity has no admirer like this disastrous Pharaoh. Just a wedding of his daughters, Minna was shut down; various roads were blocked for residents who were also openly harassed by a battalion of conceited soldiers.
Okada riders were asked to get down and push their bikes at various junctions. No, this is aside from the facelift he gave this dead town just to cover his failures.
He installed streetlights, patched our potholed roads, renovated our central mosque… All for this wedding. This man has no shame, this fraud won’t make heaven! – Gimba Kakanda
A height of narcissism – Abdulaziz Ahmad Abdulaziz
