” I will die for this government. They play me up and down, sending me here and there. I am ready to die now,” he said.
” You were not here on Tuesday( telling his colleagues ). How will a man call himself a leader and he comes out from his office with what belongs to you and he will demand that you go to His Excellency the governor and collect a letter before he attends to you.
“I am ready to die in this office. I have chosen it to take my life.
I lost everything. I was there living my life and they called me to make an appointment.
