  1. He would have waited for the out come of the investigations from the ethic and privilege arm of the national assembly before heading for court. Or is he apprehensive of the out come.

  2. See dis yeye man instead of you to admit u didn’t do NYSC u re trying to proof foolishness… Lemme start posting on my wall with my NYSC cloth before they say I dont finish school…

  3. Wait o, i thought youths corps service is meant for regular student, what about Distance Learning students(DLS)? Pls no insult i just need to know.

  4. Sahara reporters lacks credibility. Their reportage is full of yellow journalism. They are not reporting to stay in the business, maybe, they want to go with this administration.

    • Is not the issue, the issue is for them to be objective in their reportage, no matter who is involved. But, to you as a learned person, do you see anything wrong in this administration? If you have not seen, maybe, you don’t want to say the truth.

  5. I was among the 99 set at Black Gold orientation camp kilometre 16 Kaduna express way. And I must tell you sincerely Dino served with us right there. He was even the one that makes our camping very interesting with his jokes and other things. If i’m not mistaken he was in platoon 2 then.He was everywhere at the orientation camp then.He even taught us some song in Hausa language. So what are saying.
