Nigeria what direction?

@Chuxugo “This doesn’t involve custom/religion, subsequently the rule that everyone must follow ought to supplant some other convictions/social standards. In the event that I was the FG, I would quickly arrange the NCDC to uncover all the bodies and do COVID-19 tests right away. We have to realize the underlying driver of these passings in Kano.”

Entitled northern legislators need everything accomplished for them by the FG. Northern companions, see your mate joining forces associations to make the best decision.”
