They should eat and fatten up....while the masses starve to death and wallow in penury.

God rewards every man according to his conduct and according to what their deeds deserve.

Last year was 1bn naira and this year is 517m naira. I am sure the fall in oil price is taking its effect gradually. With time they will start drinking garri and groundnut. Nonsense.
