This is beyond sad! Some people said I should just pray and not call government that it’s just an accident. This is exactly the kind of reasoning that’s keeping us where we are! I’m even too tired and heart broken to explain. Good night. #RIP #PrayForNigeria #DemandAccountabilityFromGovernment #StayWoke #StayWokeFam

May all the departed RIP. #sigh Please make roads safer for us. If it's not dangerous potholes, it's traffic robberies, if it's not traffic robberies it's kidnappings, if it's not that it's SARS, if it's not SARS it's containers falling, if it's not that it's tankers catching fire...surely, more must be done.
