COSON chairman, Tony Okoroji.
Very soon, we will celebrate the one year anniversary of the historic 2015 elections in Nigeria that swept away the presidency of His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan and turned the fearsome PDP behemoth that practically owned Nigeria into a very weak and maybe confused opposition party.

Nearly all the top pastors in Nigeria were dollarized and they spoke in tongues. The media was so dollarized that my otherwise very professional friends at AIT became more Jonathan than Goodluck. Even Nollywood was very well dollarized.
