I'm in a Good mood today so I'm not gonna say more abt the TOAD. But if you've been to Delta State, you'd understand. Delta should ßξ the 2nd Richest State, yet there's nothing on ground to justify the huge allocations...

Let's not derail the thread any further... Has GEJ fulfilled the promise he made when he came to ur state during the 2011 campaign??
