@GraceIta “He didn’t obtain them, they invited him to their once-a-year conference. Next, some of these men are worthy of it, they got wrong facts on what it indicates to be King. For them, it is about revenue. In the course of campaign arrive and see how these monarchs fight mainly because of dollars, Gov Wike is just baring his intellect.”

Ajimobi will do this even to Yoruba KingsTinubu went to Ataoja of Osogbo’s Palace & boasted that even the full point out does not match him in prosperity. Wike was mistaken, but Yorubas have comparable lousy eggs as well.”
