Tifnubu now has probable cause to redeem his image by donating ₦50m or more to the victims of the inferno. At least that would be him giving back to the people from whom he and his accomplices have stolen from all these years!

Sorry for their loss. Let's await what Tinubu would give them this time around as he started his charity from outside in Katsina. Or is he just going to please his masters in the North only for his ambition

Its a pity but if you look at the estate beside it, you will agree with me this is a ploy by that estate or possibly the government to evict the illegal settlers, reclaim the land without a fight and build another estate for the bourgeoisie.

If you are a talakawa in this country, you are at risk, your home is at risk and even the air you breath is threatened.

May all our legit hustle pay ...
