    he should have helped some Nigerian schools too, to make them up to standard like those foreign schools he’s sending his children to. we need to start realising that in order to enjoy this country like we enjoy other countries outside it, we need to make it as good as those countries else, we’ll keep putting our money into other countries to develop them while ours will be wallowing

    He is from Borno state that US and other Eu countries are donating monies for after the boko haram attacks. FGN is also looking for money to execute projects and a country man donates 4.2B naira to US Uni. Bros tell him that Uni Maidugiri needs less than 4.2Bniaira to be equipped.
