Samson Siasia should have moved with me to APC. But he chose to remain where he was, now he has been banned for life. Same thing @officialEFCC planned to do to me but for my Uncommon escape to APC. Come into @OfficialAPCNg all ye who are burdened with guilt. #FridayThoughts pic.twitter.com/d3L0wYHgqq
