These numbers angered area fada, Charlie Boy who lamented that the priority of youths have been misguided.
“A practical reality of who we are as people and where our priority lies as citizens. The funny side in all of these is that we still go to bed, have a good sleep and wake up with the hope to meet a Nigeria we didn’t create. Mumu Nigerians! Mumu Nigerians!! Mumu Nigerians!!!,” he captioned a post he made on Instagram.
Charly Boy, a controversial entertainer, is popular for making bold statements. He is fond of calling out the Nigerian government for bad governance.
