The disturbed girl, lingering from the pain of treatment of her mouth, began to transfer aggression on to whoever comes her way even her mother. But, what then is the #picstoryline? It’s simple. Immediately the other little girl approached her who happened to be her friend, she quickly stretched a spoon full of pap towards her mouth as you can see. What do you think might have happened?

Stop punishing Oyo pensioners

It is disheartening that the Oyo State Government has turned deaf ears to the cries for the payment of pensioners’ gratuity in both the state and local govt services. The worst hit are the teachers that are being owed pension allowances for several months under the guise that certain people have robbed the pension treasury. It is funny that such a government is seeking a re-election bid. Will the families of these pensioners vote for such a government? Time will tell
