    Does Nigeria really have a military/. do they really have an Army?. Nigeria has certainly become the laughing stock of Africa. Any one can see how corruption can destroy a society and bring it to its knee.
    I propose that Nigeria should be handed over to a consortium of African, America and EU countries. They will manage the country for 5 years. Clean it then organize democratic elections and hand it over.
    Good Luck Jonathan and his government are completely short of ideas. To him B.H is northern business and while the Northerners continue to kill themselves, there is nothing he can do rather than take more Naira and stock in his accounts as much as he can before the bubble burst. So, better remove him and serve more lives than watch him fold his hands while B.H continue to cause havoc in Nigeria.

    This government are just fooling the masses. they claimed to be fighting the militants but indirectly they are the people sponsoring them just for their selfish interest. If this administration is serious this problem of Boko-Haram would have been history by now. How do u expect this problem of insurgent to stop when top government officials are making billions out of this. By the end of the day they will lied that billions of naira was allocated to the security sector after looting them. I’m not judging u o! But the wrath of God will surely fall upon u for taking the lives of innocent citizens. May the peace of the lord be upon this nation Nigeria.

    The whole thing is complex.Their must be some black sheep in army uniform providing intelligent and weaponry backing to this callous and illiterate extremest.Those moles ought to be fished out from Nigerian army.Secondly going by their invasion and killings, foreigners are among them trying to destabilize the peaceful co-existence of Nigeria.The financiers of this terror must be from outside of Nigeria and within.Therefore it calls for a united effort from all Nigerians and those in the diaspora to join hands in the combating this ugly menace.

    “Due to their huge number and sophisticate guns”. Does the BOKOHARAM produces Guns; are the guns not sold the global arm-market? Why is it that the military doesn’t have some sophisticated Guns….

    The mistake many Nigerians are making is that they think God is responsible to settle scores with these BOKOHARAM. You people are still sleeping in foolishness…. it will come upon with the speed of a striking snake, if you don’t wake up to the realities now before it goes too far..
