Interesting.

And the only young one among them, the Kogi Governor is really misbehaving.

He is just making people not to entrust young people with power.

Him and the other young Senator Dino Maleye. They are clueless on anything concerning Governance and Legislation.

Am not Suprised at their Ages, even when that Man at Also Rock is 74 years Old. They are following his footsteps.

The fact they just passed a bill for a younger generation to rule won't change much in the next General elections. We will still have Some old fools ruling us again.

shocked

My only interest is Rochas Okorocha


Only students of Cheiro or adherents of Numerology can relate to this;

22/09/1962=
4/9/9=
4

Rochas is a complete opposite of everything the Number 4 stands for.
With that said,


I can authoritatively say that Rochas forged his age.
BECAUSE NUMBERS DON'T LIE

Even the oldest among them is still very young to be a president, judging by the standards we have in Nigeria today.

One would think that with the recent clamour for young leadership, the youngest among them would be the best performing. Age is just numbers indeed!
