Reflection

The actions of the private sector are commendable and show their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is shocking to see them respond swiftly to a government many have described as ‘witch-hunt’ and ‘draconian’ using the EFCC and other measures. At a time like this, even the opposition party supports. This speaks well of us. Does it tell a story of love or fear? What do you think?
