Do I blame him in a country where agbero dey live for Ikoyi, living the life of luxury and graduates had to beg them for job…awon ore omo prezdent ilu wa. He shouldn’t have gotten to this though.


That is just a certified paper. The original certificate is in us as a person, your ability to use your senses well is your certificate.
