I know I spend a lot of time encouraging you spiritually but in honor of mental health awareness month I want to check in to see how you are doing in this area too?

PDP Youth Leader Adeyanju Says Former President Jonathan Is Broke And Always Complaining

Former Director of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, New Media, Deji Adeyanju, has revealed that former President Goodluck Jonathan is broke.

Adeyanju, who made the remark in an interview with Saharareporters maintained that since leaving office, the former President frequently complained of experiencing paucity of fun.

The former PDP youth leader also insisted that though Jonathan was incorrupt, most people around him were corrupt.

According to Adeyanju, “I don’t think that the former President, Jonathan, was corrupt but he had too many corrupt people around him. He was a simple man, had trust on people.

“His problem was that he trusted so many people but they did not leave up to expectation. He gave them room to operate and now he complains that he don’t have money.

“If a former President can be complaining all the time, which he does frequently; he starts raising the issue of people that stole so much money and he just shake his head.”

The Presidency says no date has been fixed yet for the signing of the 2017 budget by the acting president, Yemi Osinbajo. Some media platforms earlier today reported that the 2017 budget would be signed into law by the acting president tomorrow Thursday June 1st.

Former Gov Donald Duke Wants To Be Nigeria's President

The ex-governor spoke at a programme, “The Nigerian Symposium for Emerging Leaders,” held in Lagos.

Duke said though he once aspired to the position but did not emerge the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he would still contest for the highest office in the country at the appropriate time.

He further explained that it was because of his preference for the presidential seat that he did not vie for any federal legislative seat after serving out his terms as governor.

He said, “I do not have the flair for the legislature; standing up and sitting down at the chambers to raise a point. That was why I did not contest for the Senate but the presidency, after serving out my term as governor.”

“I have contested the presidency before; I will still give it a shot when the opportunity presents itself. I believe I still have the energy in me,” he said.

He, however, canvassed …
