According to her, they were not bothered about the problems ravaging the country at the moment, rather they engaged in political permutations and fake campaign speeches mostly to the detriment of the country.
She wrote: “I went back to listen to a speech of 2014 and if you’re not told the date it was delivered, you’d think one was speaking today.
“A country unable to free itself from the endless cycle of arrested development. Nigeria and Nigerians exist for the Next Election”, she added.
