  1. If this is true then I think it’s high time we stop the abuse and limitation to of our right to freedom of speech and if this is not complied with we should involve in a hullabaloo if the government act against our words… It’s tantamount to stupidity and not in accordance to the laws of democracy… Instead of them doing what we put them there to do they are busy diverting their attention and instead to consider things that are meant to be factual and ethical but they end up criticising… God help Nigeria

  2. dis is shameful to nigeria democracy da person o beg should no be relected bcos e canno dfend is people

  3. The man is just a coward, going to kneel down and beg cos u said the truth, wat a national disgrace, if ur my dad I will disown u wit immediate alacrity. Dumb ass politicians. Just like one guy dat was intervied he said dey should do mass burial for our bad leaders, dat would have been nice.

    • My sister, What an old man sees sitting down, you can not see it, even when you climb on a tree. Is like u have not heard of assassination before or even blackmail. Only the wise will understand.

    • Bros forget ur proverb, this one na national disgrace, if him just beg am nah diff tin but, to com kneel down dat one na fuck up, Even God wey own our live, how many times we dey kneel down ask for forgiveness? The man don mess up end of story.

  4. That shows what our leaders are after…… Their pride is more important to them….they did not even address the issue he talked about o buh are quick in punishing the man…. God save dis country

  5. We no get freedom of speech. Infact fundamental human right…which kind of human being will ask a fellow man like him to kneel in public????? Wickedness amongst so called leaders…. So far, I HV only been seeing abominable acts like ds in buhari regime… Mtchew
