  1. Good Afternoon, Please I Want To Ask A Very Good Question. Does Our Constitution State That Irresponsible People Should Hold Public Office’s?
    Why Should A Man Like Barrister Otonye Briggs Who Has Got No Family Responsibilities, Who Has No Wife, An Only Son He Turned His Back At Simply Because He Got Him Out Of Wedlock, Be Made A Special Adviser On Infrastructure Development, What Can A Man Who Has Not Developed His Own House Develop In The State?
    Politics And Power Has Made So Many Forget They Have A Home And A Family To Build, Nothing Can Be Compared To A Good Family.
