  1. Something is seriously wrong in Nigeria today. Imagine this man was military governor of a state at 27. Today, a 27 years old is still a boy and has nothing to show in the community in nigeria.

    The same old people keep recycling themselves. I want Buhari to win second term due to lack of sincere contenders come 2019 and that should end the end of those babas. I am sick of them

    • Amanda the reason why I prefer Buhari second term is because most of youths are not serious. We cant just assume that Buhari is not competent and we cannot provide a viable candidate who can put things in places instead most of our youths now are lining up behind those old politicians for position endorsement. They want to toil the same part of their old predecessors and there is no way we can have a change in this Country in this process Take a look at that guy Tinubu is backing now Jide Sanwo Olu. To me that guy will only become Tinubu errand boy if he becomes the executive Governor.

      My believe is we need to change from old system of politicking to modern politics when a leader can focus more on people’s need, addressing issues facing the masses rather than breastfeeding their pocket. The point i’m trying to make is that our youths are crying foul of old people but they are not ready to solve the problem and will even do worst if given chances but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be given a chance to try. What we need now is a sincere leader who can solve people problem.
