    What is the meaning of this entity called Nigeria?Imagine what we call governance in Nigeria. A state government (comprising of Muslims& non muslims)using the tax payers’ hard earned money to wed Muslim couples! So the Buhari led Nigerian govt has succeeded in Islamizing some states in Nigeria and some useless and scrupulous elements are deceiving themselves with one-Nigeria slogan. In time the whole country will be islamized. 32milion! For mass Islamic wedding with christian funds?what a nonsense! What the less privileged Nigerians need as assistance are job creation, quality education and food production not useless mass wedding.we are tired of this evil yoke called one Nigeria. Enough is enough! They are bold enough to publicize this in the dailies,to tell you how desperate these beings are to rule over those that are better civilized than they. If this Present govt doesn’t probe and prosecute this gross misuse of public fund,then we Nigerians will know what anti-corruption crusade is all about.
