What puzzles many is that those who are top in the crocodile tears are the same people who had spent many years in the PDP, joined in the operation that led to the destruction of Nigeria and then jump fence to seek refuge.
The All Progressives Congress is now a safe haven for corrupt politicians who intend to jump prosecution in the PDP as many who had brought the stolen wealth to the NOW ruling Party are actually praised, given the opportunity to lash at their former criminal colleagues on how they (PDP) stole the country died.
Nigeria is a country where criminals yet to be caught publicly ridicule the criminals caught, a country where in the past, officials were accused of corruption but recently, under the administration of Muhammadu Buhari, corruption is now made official.
