Naija which way na

When will we stop looking for inappropriate short ways, which can endanger lives undecided

From adding paracetamol to meat to soften it faster, to adding whatever to palm oil to make it redder, to making original fake products, etc

O ga o

Everyone wants to cut corner just to cheat people and enrich themselves. Tell me, who told you that if Garri could be as "dudu" as Amala, people will not buy? At least, that could have made it GarriVita. Stop deceiving pet with chemicals, you won't end well o.
I have spoken my own sha, let those whose ears have not been sacrificed to the devil listen.
