    when you rase the poor and teach him how to fish that makes you a rich man. But, when you have this thing you call money and discurage your fellow besiness men, you crash business because you want to be the only one that makes you a poor man.Give young business men the ahance to do business. dont use your politicaln influence to discurage people.


    It a pity!! People ar after wealth nd riches 4 themselves and their families WHILE a lot of Nigerians ar suffering I mean 3-quarter( 3/4) of Nigerians ar suffering nd 1- quarter(1/4) ar very rich nd wealthy. GOD HAVE MERCY ON NIGERIANS!!!
