Hello I’m Samuel Okizou by name, I’m giving a testimony about Dr.Sule the great Herbalist, he has the cure to all manner of diseases, he cured my HIV disease, though I went through different website I saw different testimonies about different herbalists, I was like: “Many people have the HIV cure why are people still suffering from it?” I thought of it, then I contact Dr.Sule via email, I didn’t believe him that much, I just wanted to give him a try, he replied my mail and Needed some Information about me, then I sent them to him, he prepared the CURE and sent it to me via UPS courier service, they told me that it will take 3-4 days before I’ll get the parcel, 3 days later I received the package and I started taking the medicine as prescribed by him, after 7 days of taking the medicine I went for check-up, I was tested HIV NEGATIVE… IF YOU ARE SERIOUS YOU WILL BE CURED!!! contact Dr Sule on whats-app +2348162447651.

  18. Yes the students may be wrong but setting on fire the national treasures is treason. The hostels do not belong to students and they burning the very same amenities that will serve their own children pali unthu apa! I now quite agree with Shakespeare that when emotions are heated reasoning always lacks . If it’s true I’m very sad.
