Peter obi going to ekiti to campaign for Labour party is an exercise in futility because the party has limited resources geared towards 2023, and we all know that the APC l'd do everything possible to win so as to demoralise the movement of the youths…let's cut him some slack

Peter obi going to study the Egyptian model is a welcome development.
If Nigeria can humble herself and learn we wont be were we are today.
We all read books to learn, we can also travel to learn.
I'm rich today because I went to a friend and learnt what changes my life..
