The majority of my companions and nearest relates originate from the southeast and just yesterday, I said something and said look, on the issue of the president, we are in any event, searching for competency.

Along these lines, this announcement is originating from wickedness producers and whatever they are doing will be uncovered by God’s effortlessness when the opportunity arrives. However, on this, I am not part of it and I will never be. Remember I wedded from the south. How might I have gone that far to start to fabricate hatred among me and my kindred Nigerian siblings?
