    1. Why must people drink bleach for God sake? Are they normal? I could remember during Ebola period how some Nigerians bath salt and even drank it, hmm may God help us in this confused country

    2. Nigerians, such an amazing crop of humans.
      Whenever they hear carry go, to hear stop dey always hard them. But what do u expect them to do when u did not provide anything for them and u ain’t making any effort to remedy the situation?
      Imagine other countries number of cases is reducing but the “giant” of Africa own is increasing like sokoto desert sun??

    3. I wonder, why is it that in this country whenever there is an outbreak of a virus people will be madly in rush taken unnecessary substance as a cure to that particular disease.. we really need to wake up and realize our mistakes oo
