    I don’t blame them.

    How I wish PMB is in his 50s to be bale to handle madness in nigeria?.

    I will continue to support him but i just wish him to retire from politics for his own health related issues.

    That’s the only condition that holds me back.

    I support him bcus during his election campaign, I can tell he wished the country good. That time i was visited by a so called uncle of mine in the US who lived with me for 3 months. The man wished Buhari never won. He worked hard to achieve this but failed.

    What he said that time gave me a clue that nigeria has a long way to go bcus there are nigerians who dont wish the country any good. The so called uncle said, after Buhari won, that he would be killed if he cut off those illegal means of making money. Reason he said this was bcus he was dealing with a governor who wanted to buy brand new latest Toyota Jeep (2015) for his friends and girl friends. About 100 of them. According to this uncle who deals in car auction in the US, he would charge the governor $100k for each vehicle. Vehicle that only cost about 40k each. That’s 60k profit on each. And he said governor already signed the deal in the middle of presidential election but he was too busy to execute the money transfer to foreign account to be paid to my uncle. He said the governor didnt even dispute the price. shaking my head.

    This is how they wasted money. So this silly uncle tried hard to get the money but they couldn’t conclude whose account in the US money would be transfered. He talked to me to give up my bank account. I was like hell no. Where do you want me to say i got the money from to IRS?. So he tried other people and the deal was almost reached when Buhari won. Buhari quickly made move to block those avenues and shut down the deal. This silly uncle cursed the hell out of Buhari when the governor told him he can’t move the money bcus new govt is scrutinizing everything. That’s how this uncle lost the deal.

    The stupid uncle owes me 5000 USD and still doesn’t pay me back. Now if this man could do this, imagine how many more of this was going on at that time?. This is how they ran down economy. Nigerians are greedy and I am not entertaining any visitors at my house anymore from nigeria.

    Nigerians, at least many lack patriotism. Too much of I don’t care attitude.
