APC and the Season Of Hypocrisy - By Reno Omokri

It is no longer news that we have a draught of men of integrity in Nigeria. However, what is new is that never in our history have we had such a profusion of men and women who speak from both sides of their mouths as we have today.

Look at Babatunde Raji Fashola who said that the only way to have regular power is to vote out the PDP. Today, the PDP has been voted out but Fashola is delivering regular excuses instead of regular power.
