@Truthfully83 In the game of Nigerian politics, greetings are never a sign of love or respect. But a mandatory show for the cameras and onlookers. No permanent friends or enemies, but permanent interest is the Hallmark of any Nigerian politician. That is why they cross carpet any day anytime.
@halil_in Dino: Ranka ya dade Mr President
Buhari: Dino mazan famaaaaaa
@OrisEmmanuel3 Dino you..remember sa your cane see dey my hand…
@KabiruMisali Have you notice how @dino_melaye gleefully smiles to @MBuhari? He quite know full well that it’s new senate — more matured, responsible unlike the 8th assembly where ‘rogues’ dominated it.
