Osinbajo dont reply children of hate anymore

As much as they hated and vowed to evict Awolowo's grand child Dr Seyi on a mere Reality Show Bigbrother naija because of their envy for yoruba's , they failed woefully...

Is it now a Vice President, A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Pastor of God and a Professor Of Law they, a man God saved twice from and helicopter crash, they would use fake news to impeach

The Harder they hate us, the more God blesses us and relegates them from national political relevance

Why always cow?

The attention on cow and cow herders is just too much, if half of it is given to power and economy I'm sure things would have been better.

If the whole of the best, most fortunate, and celebrated of your ancestry are combined, and they can never amount to 20% of osinbajo in life.
