He wrote: “Food inflation is global ohh. This small bottle of palm oil is sold for £20 pound sterling, i.e. 38k naira. Hair cut na 45k for London.
“The good news is that it is projected that global food inflation will drop by the end of this year. So cheer up my people.

“There is no perfect President or perfect democracy, let nobody fool you. forget the noise, your presidential candidate could have done worse.”
He emphasised that President Tinubu is working hard to find solutions to the problems he met on the ground.
“President Tinubu is working hard to find solutions to our problems created over decades of Mal-administration.
“Let us have faith in our country and our leaders and offer solutions rather than insults,” he wrote.
