  1. buhari is finished. you will not get one vote from the east that is if there will be Nigeria after the election. obasanjo forced you to take his brother mmmmmmmmm ok we shall see. we are back to Jonathan.

    • Obi, this is exactly the problems of devisive and political irrelevance the people of the East have been grappling with in decades and, it seems the further Nigeria moves towards political emancipations the more the front of the people of the East gets devisively widened. It is a well known fact that the East never unite for anything politics in Nigeria just, as the Igbo man from Imo State thinks differently from an Igbo man from Enugu or an Anambra Igbo person, that is the bane of the Eastern Nigerian politics and is never going to change in the next election. It is time the Easterners begin to recaliberate their political orientation and begin to realign their positions in Nigerian political equations. The ideas of tribal raivalry to achieve a political end for the East has never worked and will not work. The East is heavily disadvantaged politically in many respect and if an Igbo unifier is not discovered sooner; the Eastern Nigerian political status quo will remain for a long long while.

      • what do u know about east politics.dnt say what u dnt know, i c u dnt understand 9ja politic, and y are u insulting d igbos of money mongers, so na only igbo pple like money 4 dis country? igbo man never rule dis country b4, una wey no like money and has been ruling dis country since independent, where una keep 9ja money, please make una tell us where d money dey, we like m, atleast we could use it put a stabl power supply, road, water, etc. ok we collect money, una dey collect rice to vote a criminal in, remember ekiti!

  2. @ Obi, can the Easterners speaks with one voice? Even if an Easterner is chosen, some of you will vote him/her out because of money.Lets wait and see how GEJ will be defeated by GMB.

  4. This is a great news for all true lovers of our young democracy. This shows that General Mohammad Buari is truly committed to delivering good governance and dividends of democracy to millions of suffering Nigerian people. In my article titled,”Open Letter to General Buari: Pick Your Running Mate Carefully. ” on this media some weeks ago, I advised this great Nigerian citizen to pick any competent running mate outside Nigerian politics either from our universities or colleges of education. I’m very pleased with the General choice of running mate in the upcoming election next year. President Barack Obama of the U.S was a former professor of law at Chicago University in Illinois, former president Yaradua was a former professor of chemistry before venturing into politics, Dr. Nnamdi Azikwe was also a PHD holder, and even the most incompetent president Nigeria ever had – president Jonathan is also a doctor of Zoology before venturing into politics.

    It is now very clear that General Mohammad Buari will become Nigerian next president after the 2015 general election. He will win overwhelming all the 19 northern states with about 99.9 % of votes, he will win all the Southwest states with about 99.9 % Of all the Yoruba votes including Edo state, Delta, and Rivers state. Then he will win about 70-80% of votes in the East with a clear win in Imo state where Gov. Okorocha of APC is very popular and competent. He will surely win some more states across Southeast and Southsouth of our nation. This is a winning tickets for a clear victory over a failed president of the past six years. The upcoming election should be based mainly on the Candidate’s Competence, Characters, Visions or Ideas, Experience and their credibility. But it should be based on their tribes, language, culture and religious. No matter how hard this criminal and corrupt president try to rig next year election, president Mohammad Buari will easily emerge as our next president. We have tried president Jonathan failed policies for almost 6 years with no good results for the betterment of millions of suffering Nigerian people, so therefore, Nigerian people are fully ready for a change come 2015.

    I believe that the U.S government and other European countries are sending election monitoring teams to supervise the 2015 general election. If the election is conducted in a free and fair manner, General Mohammad Buari and professor Yemen Osinbanjo will emerge the president and the vice president of our beloved nation. I sincerely want to congratulate General Buari, APC delegates across the country, and most importantly, Nigerian people that have been calling for a change of direction in our nation. I’m fully in support of this great pick by our next president – General Mohammad Buari of APC. Finally, there is hope that Nigeria sinking ship will be rescue from president Jonathan’s leadership failure, corruption, mismanagement, unpatriotic agenda, money laundering operations like never before seen, election fraud and insecurity posed by his siblings – Boko Haram terrorists. May God bless Nigeria our father land. Amen.

  5. I never knew that Yar adua, Obama were professors. And. our great Zik was a PhD holder! Nigerians can paint a badly constructef mud house with colourful paints and expect you not only to believe that it is 5star hotel but for you to lodge in without giving a thought to your feelings

  6. Now that an RCCG-Pastor has been nominated for a Vice President position; We shall see the level of wisdom that would be applied to the presidency. Do not be yoked with unbeliever says the scripture.

  7. that very day jonathan did not have anything to say other than,we are handling it-ASUP nine month old strike then.He lost every respect i had for him.Let him settle all the arrears he owes us,ASUP Member shall surely vote for him.This stipens is nothing compre to what minister of petroleum is using to fly aimlessly all around the world or what mr patience jonathan is using to counter AMECHI in river state politics.GONE ARE THE DAY OF SYMPATHY BLOCK VOTE FOR jONATHAN,NOW HE CAN AFFORD MANY SHOES,HE CARE NOT FOR WHOEVERE THAT CANNOT AFFORD ONE.

  8. No place like home, welcome back to my Father’s Land, a big thanks to all my brother’s and sister’s in christ overthere, thank GOD for his mighty work in that special prayer @ghana, may his work speak forever(AMEN).
    The word of GOD say’s”And now i say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will to nothing: But if it be of GOD, you cannot overthrow it; lest perhaps you be found even to fight against GOD.”

  9. Some these Nigerians can never stand on their ground; they are like the wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. Nigerians voted Buhari out in three consecutive presidential election which he sworn to make the seat ungovernable for the winner and he succeeded in his treat, surprisingly has now become the most qualified president to rule Nigeria. Is this not a shame to nigerians? well all I can say is that let the will of God Almighty be done. Man propose God dispose.
