Some reactions from Nigeria
mansherry_YOMI: Ma’am, I plead with you to convince the FG NEVER to make the mistake of evacuating those Nigerians that deliberately went to enrol for enlistment at the Ukraine Embassy, Abuja for the ongoing war in Ukraine! Let them face their music squarely and dance to it fully! I beg you
Temitope: To God be all the glory, and well done to all who are working behind the scenes to make this possible. Just watching NTA, and a review of the happenings in Poland, Hungary, etc to relieve the pains of the people. It’s not perfect, but it’s a commendable effort. God bless Nigeria
Nasiru Danlami Ph.D: Without making unnecessary noise and hijacking of credit @MaxAirLtd has delivered on the assignment as initiated and paid for by the Nigerian government.
nurudeen lawal: Good morning ma pls ma am in need of a job, I believe in u, ma is not that I don’t have a job but they pay is very bad,can’t feed my family for the whole month, Debt everyday. Thank u ma
osmoses_I hope you, the FG will not waste our money to bring back those queuing at the Ukrainian embassy to join the war back when they start crying?
Jab Casab: Pray that what is happening to the Ukrainians will will not happen to you! There is nothing wrong with those who wanted to go and fight for Ukraine from Nigeria, it is human feeling of cheating by Putin bcos of his military power, God & man will fight for Ukraine people.
