  1. This is shows that the governor and his cabal are criminals, they could have allow him to depend himself in the court and let the court decide, but went ahead and sacked him, Yuguda and his cabal should start preparing facing judicial committee of inquiry , EFCC, ICPC by 2015.

  2. He really should sue. How does a Facebook note constitute a crime? And the government just confirmed that it is guilty

  3. This is absolute rubbish, so a citizen of a state can't question the governor if he/she notices any fowl play. He should sue the head of service and the governor.
