Atiku Abubakar, had a very interesting chat with some journalists on political issues. Excerpt:

the best for Ikere town.

Even though some individuals would like to tie down time and prevent themselves from ageing, thinking of a means for achieving such only amounts to living in a fool's paradise. No matter the level of cosmetology therapy you accord your body, your internal organs would tell you: ”you are only joking”. The facial ridges and furrows would betray your ”smartness”.
