He is a good example of rotten school of law in Nigeria and the law certificate they spread everywhere. A lawyer distorting the constitution. Nigeria and it’s products are terrible

I like Wike honestly, A person of his character should be Nigerian President.
The in action of the current leadership is largely responsible for all the nonsense happening in this country.

He has no right to do so. This is against their fundamental human right. Freedom of association and its chargeable offence.
@Muhammad Sabiu Jibril –
I see nothing to be happy about, we have lost the sense of reasoning,we lack clear sense of patriotism, we are more after regionalist than nationalist.
When something bad happened to the north the southerners are happy about it and when something of that nature happened to the south the northern are happy about it instead of thinking the way out of these atrocities that happening in Nigeria.
If you said you’re not a Nigerian just take your agitation to any level but respect other people’s lives and properties.
When time came for the actualisation of your dreams none can be a stumbling block to stop it.
But as for now we are all Nigerians. We should learn to live in peace and tolerated each other.
