    A good advice from my lovely governor,and pls listen to advice may God Almight Allah guard and protect you.Amin

  • This is good 4 nigeria because Babatinde is a dedicated footballer. He performed beyond expectation during the recently concluded world cup. The advise given by the gov is good but Quatar is not a footballing nation. I would rather prefer he goes to Europe to ply his trade
