The road is always busy. When people were looking for me asking for where I was? I only could relate to Ozumba Mbadiwe road. I am just as busy as Ozumba.I am busy working on myself. Unfortunately, the shooting of the peaceful protesters happened on this same road. It just makes sense to talk about what concerns me and concerns all of us.
