  • Your tenure as Prime Monster is to enrich your circles, family members and spoon fed to those who suck up to you. Constantly throwing goodies here & there to gain votes and popularity while behind the scene you took the nation wealth as if the funds belong to you and now you have the cheek to say this statement.
