  2. I congratulate Asiwaju Tinubu and his wife on their conferment of the chieftancy titles. I wish the duo the best of everything in life. Amen. May i know what the likes of Senator Tinubu and other leaders in ACN are doing so that their Govenors dont take irrational decisions like the one(sacking of trs)took by Chief Akande in Osun state which made AD then to loose Osun state to PDP. You Papas are trying and anytime your party wins at the national level, all what these mediocres say is impossible, try to achieve them. May God bless Nigeria and keep those who will make it great in future. Amen
