The School Cert. Drop Out Nigerian Leaders.



The School Cert. Drop Out Nigerian Leaders.

 

The thoroughgoing failure of leadership in Nigeria can be traced to those behind the political machines called NPN and PDP. I can only attest to events of the second and third republic. Nigeria favoured these evil people, when it was time for them to pay back, they refused. Now, how else do…
