Just like the popular saying “with greater power comes greater responsibilities”, many Nigerians do not know that political offices come with their own “Palava”. One of such responsibilities is that you are expected to control your temper and to act modestly even when you are angered. Unfortunately, this is definitely not the case with one Local government chairman in Adamawa State that was recently caught on camera assaulting a “poor” auto mechanic.
