    Buhari please just die and go so that Nigerians can live. What kind of person are you? Imagine, in the wjole of Nigeria ONLY one cancer radiotherapy machine exists (working) and it is at a private facility (Eko Hospitalm Ikeja Lagos)…and this is a country with 200 million people earning billions of Dollars in revenue. But you can go to London to receive treatment while the rest Nigerians die with poorly equipped hospitals. Not so? Mumu dey smell. Shame on you now and for ever more. Amen.
