“Whoever thinks that taking money from a politician and not voting them is smartness is just really dumb, why do you even need money from someone you don’t want to vote into power? That’s greed, shows lack of integrity, and exactly how we got here.

“This same hunger mentality is why young girls date multiple men, faking love just for the money. We’ve successfully killed trust, truth, and commitment in Nigeria and we dare talk of a better society?” She said.
