It is painful and unbearable when a man deceives his step-children while still marrying their mother PDP has lost shame and has continued to steal from it’s children.
“The party loves those who will blackmail other party members for their selfish reasons while rewarding sycophants whose praise-singing begins and ends on social and print media.
