Lagos State governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola bringing hope into the lives of children orphaned by Dana Air plane crash on June 3, 2012
Outside the one hundred and fifty three people that lost their lives in the Dana Air crash of Sunday, hundreds of peole on ground may have also been sent to their early graves, when the aircraft slammed into their homes. The Airline actually renedered three children of the same parents orphaned. The children escaped death because they had gone on an errand for their now parents Mr.Jeremiah and Mrs. Josephine Okechukwu. They returned minutes later to find their parent buried under the rubbles of their crumbled building.
Since then, the children namely Joel, Chison and Esther Okechukwu all under the age of twelve have been wandering around the neighbourhood, until help came their way through governor of Lagos State Babatunde Raji Fashola. The governor as soon as he got wind of their plight, commanded his aides to take them to the government house in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria for proper care pending when their parent`s relatives will come for them ;Timeline of fatal plane crashes in Nigeria

You are equally a wicked and disgusting human being. Look at how you attack people on here left and right (including celebs who don't give a baboon's hiney about your miserable existence). Who cursed you? Did someone use your brain and senses for ritual? Maybe one of the people you offended cursed you and that curse is the cause of your constant misery (you and your crew Anna, Lolo and co... I won't be shocked if you are all the same vagabond). Here you are hollering wickedness is evil yet you are up front and center when it comes to wickedness & evilness. Please shove a hot rod down your throat and take a dive into an inferno...rotten, filthy, f**ktarded swine.

How can the President and his so called rulers sleep at night when Mr. Jonathan bought 3 new presidentail jets, and passengers planes in the country are not properly maintained.
The Bible says" Surely, I come quickly". May the Lord pays all of you leaders and families for your wickedness. Reply this thread

Thank you Baba Fashola for rendering help to those orphan kids. What a sad story for all those who lost their lives in the Air Crash and those sitting in their home and lost their lives too for nothing. God have Mercy on Nigeria and Restore the Country to Her feet again. Reply this thread

All these are just the results of a failed nation where greed is the talk of everyday,money goes ahead of human lives.This nation will never stop going through hell until things fall apart,and disintegration take's place.This failed entity called Nigeria is never meant to be one in the very first place,if with all the churches and mosque in every nook and cranny,with all the prayers we believe they are praying and things are still like they are,what happens without the prayers.Even the church is no longer a safe haven,most of them churches are just there for there private and personal agendas,many call on God with their lips while their hearts are really faraway from God.Ka Chineke mezie okwu.

That Fashola took this kid in is nothing spectacular but because this happened in Nigeria, it is ! In a developed world, govt is responsible for displaced pple whether they are children or not. There ought to an instition responsible for children who are affected by diasters such as this- even those caused by Boko Haram. Nigeria does not want to learn from itz mistakes. There are more Black Berry users than basic infrastructure/social amenities; we know how to immitate fashion and tech but are yet to immitate good governance. What will happen to other kids orphaned by this plane crash ?What happens to displaced persons and those who lost properties? Why 3 days of national mourning instead of taking a critical look at how to develop sustainable diaster management in the name of immediate re-housing , compensation, medicare , employment and taking stock of kids orphaned ?! I WEEP FOR MY COUNTRY ! Reply this thread
