  1. I actually don’t know how to feel about her tagging CNN and Time Magazine. I mean, I’m not outraged by the mentions. Perhaps if the international media focuses on the government, they’ll be shamed into doing their job right. And those people that are saying the givernment shouldn’t speak on every death, abeg they should shut up. There are tragedies you can’t simply ignore or act like they didn’t happen, especially when they are brought on by public infrastructure. And releasing a statement acknoweldging the tragedy is not such a cumbersome task, is it?

  2. Who indeed is this government working for? Cattles? Aliens? Mscheewww Abeg #NigerianLivesMatter
    If it s aBoko Haram strike now, they will rush and condemn, just condeming all day long.

  3. Omotola is our nigerian Gwyneth Paltrow. She can’t seem to catch a break for whatever seemingly good thing she does.

  4. She’s clueless. Oh! She’s clueless…

  5. You Nigerians are the problem. The few among you smart enough to hold leadership accountable, you try to keep them down. Mscheww.
