Complaint(s) from the public

#iKUWEiKUWE has nevertheless received complaints from a section of the public most of whom missed out in the Assembly recruitment and have subsequently missed out on this one. One such complaint reads;

“It is unfortunate that the recruitment exercise has been characterized by nepotism, favoritism and outright favor towards slay-queens / kings. We who don’t have godfathers recently missed out on the Assembly recruitments under such claims now this recruitment is seeing the same vices being practiced with a lot of impunity”
