A lazy president has been unable to travel around the country to know how Nigerians are suffering. Since 2015, he has been to only 5 states on working visits, but he has traveled more than 38 times outside Nigeria, and his medical checkup, abroad, has kept him away from office for 160 days.

Buhari and Miyetti Allah, the audacity of impunity, arrogance and dishonesty

The world belongs to people of knowledge no doubt but knowledge without wisdom is what is called foolishness.
