    AND IT BEGS A VERITABLE QUESTION. WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND OF THE PERENIAL PEACE ACCORD. INCLUDING, WHAT HAS THIS USELESS BODY ACHIEVED OR HAS TO SHOW FOR ITS DEBUT AND SINCE INCEPTION?

    Aside the fact that ABAT was ably represented by his VP therefore into the time-wasting venture that has not offered anything reasonable to usher in peace to the polity. Where is the much desirable peace the country has ever needed like never in the Nigerian nation?

    WHY DO THESE PEOPLE CONTINUE TO DECEIVE THEMSELVES AND INSULTS THE COLLECTIVE INTELLIGIENCE OF NIGERIANS.

    Tinubu misses nothing not being in the photoshop charade and the optics for cheap publicity of a political NONSENSE.
