Cool FM On Air Personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as ‘Freeze’ on Tuesday criticised Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia, for his ‘generous’ act of giving N1,000 to an elderly woman.

A photograph of Ikpeazu, giving the elderly lady a thousand Naira note, flooded the social media and many people praised him for being kind to the old and poor.

However, freeze took to his Instagram page to express his mind.

According to him, the money was too small and would hardly make an impact in the poor woman’s life.

“Hmm, firstly, how is this going to affect her life over the course of the next one week, one month, and one year?

“Secondly, How much is that again in dollars? Thirdly, why take a picture giving away 1k? And fourthly, are Nigerians ever going to see the big picture?”

He continued by saying “some people give out millions every day in school fees, for surgical procedures and don’t get their ‘pictures’ in the media.

“For instance, Gov. Ayo Fayose, would have at least come down from that vehicle, help the woman to cut her fish or peel her oranges.

“And then give her some money, instead of giving just 1k from the comfort of his SUV and the protection of his guards.

“I am not impressed; Nigeria needs more, Nigeria deserves better. We voted you In Sir.” (NAN)
