Oga, do you remember the three important questions one need to consider when taking about development? Those infrastructures u saw were actualized at the detriment of the people, it’s more of bourgeoisie oriented goals. Allah Ya bamu mafita cos the vast majority are dying!!!

A fellow whose governmental policies are anti-people? Who with immunity destroys legal properties without compensation or who build walls to block-out beggars on the street rather than provide life-sustaining alternatives for them?
Well done Garba. Well done.#RedefineNigeria

It is a wicked travesty that we celebrate infrastructure which can fade tomorrow, in the midst of wanton killings of helpless citizens, rising poverty & blinding ignorance. My Africa rulers – PEOPLE FIRST. May God give u a heart to love the people.

I agree with you sir, he achieved everything but the security of lives and property is missing.

“…i saw what eyes could not believe “. This is coming from those who we expect to give us a better Nigeria? While I applaud @elrufai for what he’s doing in Kaduna, I’m “shocked” that your eyes couldn’t believe it? So, what do you expect from persons in government?
