Understanding Diaspora Activists and Irrational Demands

By Elijah Attah I would start this article on a high pitch because of the activities of some supposed Nigerian activists holed up somewhere outside the shores of Nigeria barely surviving and waiting for that opportunity to make a living through ignoble ways, including selling their conscience for a plate of porridge.

The Diaspora And It’s Negative Influence On Our Democracy
