2015 Election: Buhari leads Jonathan in poll organized by presidential aide

On October 15, the day former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, declared his intention to run for president in the 2015 election, news website, Sahara Reporters, activated an opinion poll asking Nigerians to indicate who they would vote for if the election were to hold that day between Mr. Buhari (as candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC) and President Goodluck Jonathan ( as candidate of the Peoples Democratic, PDP).

The poll lasted for only 24 hours, and out of a total of 15,435 persons that voted, Mr. Buhari got 12,246 votes, representing 79 percent of the total votes cast, while President Jonathan got 3189 votes, representing 21 percent of the total votes.

However, ostensibly to counter the survey conducted by Sahara Reporters, Mr. Jonathan’s Special Assistant on Social Media, Reno Omokri, also set up a similar poll asking almost the same question posed by the news website.

His poll, which is still running on his blog, “Build Up Nigeria” posed the question: “If the Nigerian Presidential election were held today, who would you vote for between President Goodluck Jonathan and General Muhammadu Buhari?”.

Mr. Omokri’s poll began a day after Mr. Buhari declared to run, but unlike the one ran by Sahara Reporters, which has since closed, the one by Build Up Nigeria is still running.

However, the result of the poll, as at 18:32 p.m. on Saturday, showed that Mr. Buhari was also leading by a wide margin.

While Mr. Buhari has 6,411 votes, representing 69.87 percent of the total tally, President Goodluck Jonathan has 2,455 votes, representing 26.75 percent of the votes cast.

Three hundred and ten persons, representing 3.38 percent of the total votes, were undecided.

For the polls, while Sahara Reporters used epoll platform, Mr. Omokri used poll daddy’s

Below are the two poll results:

      AS LONG AS THE POLLS ARE FREE, FAIR AND CREDIBLE, LET THE WILL OF NIGERIANS BE DONE

    • Alcindo Satori

      remember Obama 2012? Romney had it all in the polls ‘member?!!

      • WWBlogger2

        Was Romney really ahead “in all” the polls?

        • Alcindo Satori

          even karl rove was in disbelief as the real numbers rolled in during the 2012 election. Doubt it? Google it bro… just don’t live in a fantasy world.

  • lonegreen

    It is the true reflection of how 2015 election will go, I voted for gej in 2011 but was totally disappointed with his woeful performance, this time I am for buhari 100% because if for nothing else he will confront corruption headlong. Just my opinion though

    • tuco

      Fully in support.

    • Wähala

      Only if Reno Omokri will tell his client the true result of the poll. He will probably tell Dumbo he’s miles ahead of Buhari just to keep milking him while the going is good. Dumbo and his PDP big wigs were a collective No-Show at today’s TAN rally because of low turnout as their crowd would’ve been measured against the crowd Buhari drew just days ago at the same Eagle Square. However, this early polls are presumptuous as not all the candidates have declared who intend to vie for the ticket with Buhari… sha, so far, so good. #AnyBodyButDumbo2015 na my logo!

      • WWBlogger2

        Good talk, fair assessment.

  • Omar

    Apc will truly lead in every poll u conduct, haba body no b wood Nigerians hv seen it all thru ds years is time we stop playing with our feature change is d answer in everything we do so as we gte it rright

  • Robinson

    “When Mr. Goodluck Jonathan said he did not ‘give a damn’ about declaring his
    assets, some people pretended not to understand the implications. The truth is that

    a man who does not give a damn about leading by character or accountability cannot

    inspire success or productivity. As a result, Jonathan leads a system where his key people

    are free to pursue their own conquests; a system where merit does not count,
    and evil is not punished”.

  • Owambe

    On a good day even Jonathan will vote himself out. The guy knows he’s dirty. But wait o; Omokri survived the Wendel Simlin scandal, will he survive this? Is the guy finally tired of his thieving boss and seeks to humiliate him?

    • u s man

      I luv ur.

    • Tunsj

      I couldn’t have said it better myself. A real change is needed in Nigeria.

  • Bishop

    All we ask is for a free and fair elections, by February 2015. PDP will be disappointed when the results are all shown, this has proven to them that it’s really Time for change. APC will beat them.

  • TRUTH MASTER

    This Omokri must be living in a dream world. And he is got some nerve! Going ahead to conduct a poll means he somehow believes, deep down, that his boss, our President, Goodluck Jonathan, is doing well and is on the way to re-election in 2015. Now that he has got an unintended result, will he be honest enough to admit it? We wait!

    By the way, this is some piece of good reporting!

  • Ekwekwe

    What stops Sharia Reporters and Propaganda Times from starting the swearing ceremony of Buhari as president right away? Based on the irrefutable fact that the samples used for those studies are representative of a large majority of Nigerian voters – who are known to have access to computers and the Internet – the result of these studies will be a carbon copy of the 2015 presidential election. Why waste Nigeria’s scarce resources to conduct an election? When will Buhari be sworn in?

    • Enemona

      It is an unscientific poll, the sample is quite small and unrepresentative of Nigeria as a whole, they’re both casual polls. They don’t tell much but the handwriting is on the wall. I can glean two ominous signs from the poll:

      1. Even if it is unscientific, given that it is on the internet and given that one of the two websites is staunchly pro jonathan and the other is somewhat anti-jonah, one expects some close contest but no, the gap is crazy; too wide. Does this mean all internet users, all of a sudden hate the president, what happened to the pro-jonathan crowd? Don’t they have access to the internet? Don’t they have phones?
      2. The shellacking on Omokri’s website says more. Omokri would have expected victory since he feels the visitors to the website would be pro-jonah but what he has forgotten is that they may be pro-jonah but have since been disappointed by his performance and true character as a leader. He was seriously wooped in his own domain.

      This points to one fact, the people are disappointed and are ready to vote against this government. He enjoyed all the goodwill in 2011 because he was relatively unknown and he had a huge backing from OBJ. Buhari had no platform yet garnered 12m votes, the propaganda against him were huge, religious and ethnic sentimentalism which has since been seen as big lies by Nigerians. The so-called ‘men of God’ who backed him have all been rubbished in huge scandals and do not have the credibility anymore, they’ve been found out. Be worried, be very very worried!

  • TRUTH MASTER

    At my watering hole, amid gulps of Heineken and bites of Nkwobi and other delicacies, I told my fellow revellers pre-2011 election that a vote for Jonathan will be a vote well wasted, for a few reasons, including:

    1. He never earnestly sought the office of President and was not prepared for it
    2. Nothing in his antecedents pointed to a man who swots to achieve greatness
    3. He dodged a debate with his opponents
    4. He said little as his then Godfather, OBJ, piggybacked him across the country during electioneering campaign

    Well, sentiments, religious and ethnic, prevailed and most of them voted for Jonathan.

    Today, they are so angry anytime anyone mentions Jonathan because, they say, he has disappointed them. They are now fiercely pro-Buhari. This is the way it is, I am sure, in many other fora and joints. Therefore the outcome of this poll is not a surprise.

    Back to my watering hole, I have swallowed hundreds of centiliters of my favourite Lager….mostly paid for by those who now appreciate my warning pre-2011 to keep Jonathan at arms length!

    Let’s not make the same mistake in 2015. Let’s vote wisely. Let’s vote out this directionless, corrupt, inept, callous and purposeless FG!

  • Sword of Damocles

    I am excited , but NOT about the 2 polls referenced in this piece, after all they are NOT SCIENTIFIC. the reason i am excited is that in a free and fair election, Gen Buhari would wipe the floor with our crooked President, REPEATEDLY. Only fools who have LOW ESTEEM for their father’s name would vote for that BETRAYER of 180 million people. Nigeria has suffered enough, millions of long suffering citizens have had ENOUGH of the national/international DISGRACE, the frenzied looting of the treasury(federal,state, local), the lies, the LACK of common amenities taken for granted in other lands. We just want these treasonous lot OUT!!

  • Efe1

    I am waiting for TAN to conduct or commission their own poll even among their own members, Buhari will still carry the day. Most of the tanners are there for what they are paid. Did you watch the disgrace in PH? Look at the grand finale in Abuja, GEJ must have gotten some pre information about the possible poor turn out, so he did not turn up. There is so much money can buy. If you are senseless, you are senseless. The level of corruption is just too much! The man has fail but just because he lack the capacity to see his own failure and take the right step, he is walking straight into the biggest disgrace ever suffered by a president anywhere in the world. The worse part of it is that GEJ is surrounded by sub humans like Reno, Abati, and Okupe.

    • WWBlogger2

      TAN is a completely 419 racket run by the serial 4i9er Ifeanyi Uba.

    • Enemona

      TAN reminds me of Dan Kanu of the YEAA fame; Remember “Youth Earnestly Ask for Abacha”! That sharp guy suffering in the diaspora that came up with the fraud ran away with millions, he simply duped Abacha, by the time Abacha knew, it was too late… same here and now!

    • One@One

      GOD Blesss you now and forever.

  • sammyctu ode

    What Nigerians should know and realize is that if pdp and jonathan loose the 2015 election, WE THE PEOPLE OF NIGERIA ARE THE REAL WINNERS OF NIGERIAN DEMOCRACY. If APC wins the election, Nigerians have made a big statement, we have freed ourselves from slavery since 1999 and we have told the whole world that if APC DOES NOT PERFORM, WE NOW HAVE THE GUSTO TO VOTE THEM OUT OF POWER AND THAT WILL TELL ALL THE NIGERIAN POLITICIANS THAT THEY SHOULD NEVER TAKE THE NIGERIAN ELECTORATE FOR A RIDE ANYMORE.

  • Screw-em

    Deri aka dracula; Wendel Simlin ; and Reno Omokri….emmmhh ….e bi like say water don pass garri oooooh!!…Nna, which kind poll be this? wetin u eat before you conduct this “unscientific” poll….abi na too much sapele kaikai steer you into this “nonsense”?.. you for Just leave the soja and 20naira boys rig your man in come 2015, then everybody go know say your benefactor Dumbo GEJ dey walk on water….lol….The unfortunate state of our dear nation cannot continue along this path as this time around our VOTES will and MUST count……The current occupant in ASO Rock.should please engage a Moving Truck Company soonest, as we all will ensure his kind NEVER smells the corridor of power ever again. Aso Rock must and will be fumigated after the otuoke clown/Jester is disgraced out of of office come 2015

    • Screw-em

      Folks, I’m of the view 9ja’s Humpty Dumbo GEJ may just do an about face and announce to everyone’s dismay that he wont be running for re-(s)election come 2015. By Dec. 2014, the 5000 thieves holed up in their respective “mansions” will all develop catarrh and start heading out of 9ja to foreign health centers for “treatment” aka “ebola flu shot”. President Buhari…I will suggest you shut down all air and land borders/entry points to ensure they all face the wrecking Buhari train coming straight at these bastards. All bank transfers above $10,000.00 must be approved by the emasculated EFCC, and all privates jets grounded indefinitely.I swear this fight will be No Holds Barred…wetin happen to the forensic audit of slutty Diezani’s NNPC now?….lol…..roforofo all da way!!!

      • WWBlogger2

        And maybe Buhari will also sack the bank manager who approved 27 million naira loan just because one big man wanted to purchase nomination form from his political party.

        • Screw-em

          “Oga” over 60,000 showed up @ Eagle square on Wednesday. With a pledge of less than $3.00 about N500.00 each, the cost of the nomination form would have been defrayed. Go figure!!

          • WWBlogger2

            Let’s not get emotional about this. I am not a jonathan fan. (didn’t even vote for him when all the ethnic and tribal bigots were voting in 2011). I am just saying that lets put every body to the same test come 2015. That is the only way we can be prepared to respond to anything that come our way after 2015.

          • Screw-em

            My crystal ball or tea leaves never fail me. The hand writing is already on the wall, Humpty Dumpty GEJ is FINISHED aka blown to smithereens. You can’t slice this potato anymore, The He-Billy Goat is DONE!!

          • Enemona

            Apologies for a part of my response above. This response actually shows you’re not just maligning the man.

        • Efe1

          People get loan for all sort of reason, the most important factor is if you can repay the loan.

          • WWBlogger2

            No wonder we have so many non-performing loans in our banks – because “people get loan for all sort of reason”, including for elections. And when they can’t pay back (remember what Ekweme said about his expenses in his party primaries in 2003 and how he went broke because of it?) the poor depositors who went to the bank to save their kobo kobo would be the ones leaking their wounds. The big man walks away scott free because it is a country of impunity.

          • Efe1

            Like I said, it is based on your ability to repay. The bank must have made a business driven judgement.

          • WWBlogger2

            He said he called his FRIEND, the manager. This clearly does not imply due process. It is like we are forgetting that it is this same kind of paddy paddy banking that got us into a huge mess the last time.

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            WWBlogger, I understand the point you are seeking to make.

            But in the real world, if you can’t get your bank manager to be your friend, you can’t win his trust.

            Like Enemona or Efe1 had stated in one response, the relationship with your bank is purelyon trust.

            If at any point mybank manager changes and i don’t get a call from his or her replacement within two weeks, I normally ask the bank to reassign my account to someone else who can relate with me.

            If your bank manager trusts your ability to repay, i.e. your integrity, there is always a business case to be made, even for a trip to the moon.

          • WWBlogger2

            So what’s Buhari’s ability to repay 27 million naira “short-term” loan (or overdraft)?

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Is TY Danjuma still alive?

            Are there no Nigerians who believe in GMB to the point of contributing monies to defray a N27m loan?

            I believe the underlying position of the point you raise is that GMB does not enjoy enough goodwill to have people who could, and would, step out to help him.

            I am one of those who would happily contribute monies to help him defray this cost, whether he wins or not.

          • WWBlogger2

            And I would too, if I have any money in addition to the N2,410 delicately arranged on my table right now (this is no joke). I absolutely believe that Buhari would receive a personal contribution from a million Nigerians if he opted to. But for reason I can’t fathom, he chose the bank option. I hear for instance that he is living in a posh accommodation in abuja paid for by el-Rufai. So why not simply ask the guy for the money? Maybe he doesn’t want to be seen in PUBLIC touching ‘tainted money’. And this worries me even more. And, which one is better – taking people’s money (deposits) from some other person (bank manager) whom the money does not belong to, or asking the people (Nigerians) to give you the money directly?
            There is also a second, very dangerous message from Buhari with this bank business: If, in a Buhari presidency, politicians start taking money left right and centre, would Buhari have the moral strength to wield the big stick???

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            I can only fathom it was because of time factor.

          • Efe1

            I will therefore urge you to question the judgement of the bank manager to grant the loan. You will agree with me that everybody want a loan, but it is the judgement of the manager that separate the needs from the want, the financially viable from the not so viable. My friend GMB sort a loan, and it is the duty of somebody to judge if that loan should be advanced. This decision are based on set standards. In this instance, let say GMB met the requirement and was granted the loan.

          • Shehu Monguno

            Loans for political activities are expressly ban thanks to Sanusi lamido Sanusi

        • Enemona

          He did not take a loan, he took an overdraft. That is allowed for people who banks trust, there was no loan contract or whatsoever. He simply asked the bank to make the amount available since he did not have up to that in his account until he gets back home to refund it. He issued a cheque that was beyond what he had and the bank manager knowing him and his integrity made it available. I have businesses and whenever I ask for such overdraft, no matter what I am using for, my account officer and his manager make it available for a short-term, a day or two. At times, I might be overseas and need to make a quick payment and they do this for me. It is not wrong, it becomes an issue when you refuse to pay back.

          Do not turn facts over its head because you are afraid of a honest man becoming the president of your country. All your attempts to hang a corruption case or scandal on this man has failed woefully, the more you try, the clearer it becomes that this guy has great integrity. Obasanjo tried very hard, he probed ordered for his probe, the result came out clean and he asked for another probe, it came out clean again. How many of these other clowns can survive such verification. Buhari’s work and time in office is the most investigated, so much light has been beamed on him but nothing truly incriminating has been found. It reminds me of what the republicans did on Obama, they beamed their search lights everywhere and could only hang on to flimsy things, mere rumours and outright lies, same here with Buhari. He will win but continue digging and you’d find nothing!

          • WWBlogger2

            Hmmmn! I can see that this matter is going to be a difficult one for the Buhari campaign organisation to explain! See how you have to explain a simple matter in so many words. I hope the PDP people do not latch on to this and make it count for them. I am beginning to regret that I ever brought it up in the first place.

          • Enemona

            Fault my explanation not my many words.

          • WWBlogger2

            First, an overdraft, by whatever name, is a debt, a loan; it means you have borrowed what you don’t have to pay back later. In the camp of Buhari, I do not think we should be engaging in the kind of technicalities that these 419 lawyer use to defend white collar crooks. It is like Jonathan saying ‘corruption is not stealing’. Secondly, you said an overdraft is a short-term facility. I do not know how much Buhari receives as pension that he can pay back over 27 million in a ‘short time’. I can go on, but like I said, I regret bringing this up, so don’t push me. I hate to sound like a pro-Jonathan against Buhari. Seriously.

  • Wähala

    #AnyBodyButDumb2015…
    There’s no way evil can triumph over good. Look at the caption picture and judge by their true colors. Black and White and the choice is an easy one, no gainsaying it. Left to me, I would advise Gen. Buhari to promptly publish his latest assets declaration form, then, challenge Dr. Dumbo to follow suit… that would be the 6inch nail in the head of the Otuoke-born criminal. With such a huge lead at the polls, Buhari must consolidate on it by making a Mrs. Fayemi, Dr. NOI or an Igbo man his running mate. That would swing the women voters and wake the mumu Igbos from blindly backing a losing horse. But that is secondary, most importantly, to secure the loyalty of all his well wishers regardless of region and religion… to flush Dumbo into the soakaway is a national call to duty: #AllHandsOnDeck!

    • Owambe

      Respect for the first part #AnyBodyButDumbo2015! The criminals must be in slumber to think the ride will continue unchallenged. My trouble is with the Ngozi hype. The Ugwashi-Uku woman is a criminal full stop! I stopped seeing her as an intellectual and truly she’s not. She leads this abracadabra economics of Jonathan. Any sane intellectual cannot serve in this corrupt govt. Did you watch her yesterday flanking Chidoka at the TAN rally in Abuja. Ngozi is a lost soul, I’m sorry man… seek a new mentor.

      • Musty

        Completely agreed on that lady. It is too unfortunate she is the “PRIME MINISTER OF NIGERIA”

      • Enemona

        Wahala and I are almost always on the same page but one thing I have always disagreed with him on is NOI. He is obsessed with that woman like I was too in the past for her achievement and natural intellect. She has messed all that up by blindly working in a corrupt government and even going as far as defending corruption. Before anybody attacks me, I still respect her and always will but I am disappointed somewhat.

        • WWBlogger2

          Madam is now a big time politician. I don’t want to make allegations that I cannot substantiate, else I would have said maybe she has tasted the national cake and discovered that she had wasted all those years at the World Bank scrounging for peanuts. But, like I said, what do I know?

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Enemona, can you imagine that I was one person who would truly have loved to see NOI as our President?

          But that is in the ancient past.

          If anything, she has proven herself worse than even Ribadu!

          • WWBlogger2

            Honestly, I do not believe that Ribadu has done anything wrong. In fact when they gave him that panel job, he went there to expose them. Experience has thought me that the party you belong does not expressly make you a friend or enemy of Nigeria.

        • Wähala

          Are you a prophet… how can you tell who I’m obsessed with?
          Like I asked every Thomas in the past: ‘How many times has your mother been Finance Minister?’
          How many other ladies do you know that are better qualified in their capacities than her… list them!
          What if I refer you to a comment where I strongly disagreed with her? You know nothing about me man, biko, stop trying to predict my obsessions… before I explode on you!

          • Enemona

            I do not know you even as I lay claim over agreeing with you on some issues, I do not need to know you nor am I even interested in knowing you. I aplogise if my use of the word ‘obsess’ got to you.

            I also make bold to say you were darn too harsh and streetlike in your response; nobody who wants respect brings another person’s mother into such issues especially in an African context where disrespect for others’ elders equals disrespect for one’s own elders too. I also am not afraid of your ‘blowing up’, it has no implication here. I’d only advise you tamper your emotions and embrace decorum, you surely overreacted to my comment.

      • G4

        She is not a criminal, if she was not there the gluttony would be worse. The way I see it she is making the best of a bad situation, you cannot fault her for that.

        • Owambe

          The best of a bad situation is for her to pick her pieces and go home… and apologize to Nigerians for deceiving them that an economy that has not yielded any job is Africa’s biggest. The best of a bad situation is for her to show Nigerians the 1.6 million jobs she created….

          • Wähala

            Suggest a replacement!

        • Wähala

          Stop watering stones on fanatics… she remains head & shoulders above everyone in Dumbo’s Cabinet

      • Wähala

        I will not seek a new mentor, she’s just one of many ladies I admire… shikena!

    • Mohammed Yahaya

      Wahala this ur post na bai Wahala wo, dere is God wo

    • Rico

      That’s an insult on Dr NOI as suggested that she should be considered as a VP, don’t you know that she is the current prime minister of Nigeria, a VP is too low for her.

  • tulampa

    Nigerians it’s good to rejoice this victory if for nothing at all, at least it shows that Nigerians are ready for change. But most importantly elections are not won on d pages of newspapers. We must all register n ready to vote out this tyrant called Jonathan

  • Gbo_lee

    Slowly but surely,the movement is gathering momentum…Jonathan will be a goner by 2015 if the people are allowed to vote in a free and fair election and this is clear…because while Buhari is winning supporters who believe in him,Jonathan is buying support groups…change is close!

  • Guguru

    I really do think Jonathan’s political future is in trouble.

    • Mr. Abdin

      You are right.

    • Alcindo Satori

      remember Obama 2012?

      • Guguru

        He is no Obama. He has nothing in common with Obama. Obama is not a corrupt politician.

        • MrFesh

          Lol. Tell Democrats that and see yourself laughed to score.

          • Guguru

            Can you point any of corruption under Obama? If at all, which one rivals that which we know under Jonathan?

          • MrFesh

            Keep to your clime kid. Don’t extrapolate to countries you are not conversant with their operations so you don’t make a lot of as* of yourself. Again, get a Republican and ask him that.

          • Guguru

            You were the one that brought democrats into this, did you not? LOL! Extrapolate? Who taught you those words?

            I’m happy you are learning fast.

        O boy stop deceiving your self, Jonah na intelligent???

  • Alcindo Satori

    yeah yeah premium times and sahara reporters. Just like Barak Obama in 2008 and 2012, Jonathan understands that winning is all about galvanizing the grassroots; not winning some online straw poll?!! And besides, none of these online voters will vote come feb. 14

    The problem for me is that are all those who took part in the polls leaving in Nigeria and would vote in 2015? If you see the numbers that these politicians always turn out in the rural areas, you would bow. In these places, with little electricity and no internet, the people simply vote for whom the local political lord tells them to vote for. The rest they just rig. Sadly, the foreign observers and the noise makers are usually not found in these places, period!

    • Olutola

      You are 100% correct. Majority did not know that a 2kg bag of rice is a world to some of these rural dwellers. I went to the village and gave an old woman 1000NGN and her countenance was so lightened as if I have given her entire universe, then I was told they still buy a meal for less than 100 at local restaurant/kitchen and can make a pot of soup for 300NGN and it will last them the rest of the week. Rather than stay overseas and cities in Nigeria and talk, if you want to rescue Nigeria please use your phone, if you are overseas buy calling card, if you are in Nigeria sacrifice even 500NGN recharge card and make up your mind to call at least five people and encourage each of the five to at least reach out to five other people, then we can win this battle over Nigeria.

      • WWBlogger2

        And we can do more, and it doesn’t have to be because of election. The truth is that while life in the villages is nasty, even more brutish and much much shorter, the rest of us in the cities who can afford internet and a pen are busy abusing those who can afford the big big cars and the massive mansions that we cannot. Then these people give them the opportunity to ‘come and chop’ and they start singing a new tune – like Abati them; like Chris Anyangwu them. See Oshiomole, the moment he became governor, he started asking them to sell the refineries that he was up in arms for. What of that Mallam Shekarau, that poor teacher who became governor while claiming to fight those in power?

        • Sword of Damocles

          T. Hobbes huh? Nice. you are right, WE can all do more, and not just right before an election. But this election cycle is different, in that it portends an opportunity to start that proverbial “journey of a 1000 miles” with ONE BIG STEP.

      • ogechi

        DONT BE FEAR, IT’S THE REASON WE ARE HAPPY THE OPPOSITIONS HAVE MERGED THIS TIME AROUND; WE KNOW IT’S THE ASSUMPTIONS OF PDP THAT MAJORITY OF NIGERIANS ARE POOR&BUYABLE, THATs WHY THEY THREAD&STAMPEDE EVERYBODY WITH IMPUNITY!!!! With GMB’s INCREASING POPULARITY,GEJ’s DWINDLING IMAGE plus THE CURRENT FINANCIAL&MEMBERSHIP STRENGHT OF THE OPPOSITIONS, I am sure even with OBJ’S lame support to PDP they will still be defeated roundly…..OSUN ELECTION WAS AN EYE OPENER&THE PDP CANT EVEN MOBILISE THAT KIND OF STRENGHT IN every STATE FOR THE GENERAL election.

        READ THE CRITERIA for presidential election; THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN TO THE OPPOSITIONS IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS A STALEMATE/RE-RUN (and opposition always win a reRUN)

        PDP SHOULD BE READY TO SPEND ALL THEY V STOLEN SINCE 1999& STILL LOOSE THE ELECTION. …..

  • True Nigerian

    Maybe Buhari will be another fraud or folly on Nigerians when he wins. But any other “fraud or fuul” will be better than Jonathan. These polls reflect nothing but the truth. In 2010, I marched on the streets to protest in favour of a Jonathan Presidency, not because I believed for a second that he was the kind of leader Nigeria needed at the time; I did it because it was the right to do in order for the law, justice and good conscience to prevail.

    Today, I don’t know if there is anyone in the entire world that feels as utterly embarrassed and horrified as I feel about the bottomless incompetence, public defence of stealing and senselessness from Jonathan. Having lived in 5 foreign countries and seen how smart Nigerians are considered to be in all spheres of life whether in business, medicine, technology, law, sciences, finance, and even the politics of some foreign countries, I struggle to reconcile that fact with the rather ridiculous fact that such a bunch of brilliant Africans would have such a ridiculous character as Jonathan as their leader. Sometimes, I look at my country and weep. I look at the Niger Deltans and feel sorry for them about what Obasanjo did to them by foisting Jonathan on them and the rest of Nigerians. Niger Delta has many smart competent and brilliant chaps who could transform this country across every tribe, tongue and religion if they were in Jonathan’s position today. But today, Jonathan makes Niger Deltans look as if they are all “idyots”. Jonathan is an idea that has worked for nobody in Nigeria except the few criminals and animals that are sucking the system dry because they are his cronies. Today, a Niger Deltan has made history as the very worst leader in Nigeria’s history, and it reflects badly on the Niger Deltans. I know many people today who have vowed that a Niger Deltan will never get their votes for the presidency again. And it is not just because of President Jonathan’s failure, but because of the way in which he has succeed in using some misguided fellows from Niger Delta in voicing ethnic bigotry each time someone rightly criticises his government on grounds of verifiable and obvious failings. It’s either they are vowing to go to war against any removal (even if a lawful removal) of Jonathan or they are childishly vowing to take their oil. Meanwhile their own governors are getting N22 a month (bigger than the annual budget of some countries) and doing next to nothing for the impoverished and abused people of the Niger Delta. The debate on leadership has never been so low in our history. I mean, Northerners produced leaders that ruined this country just like Jonathan. However, at no time did we hear from Northerners responding to criticisms of such horrible leaders by making any threats such as the ethnic madness we’ve heard from Niger Deltans in the last 5 years. Some of the most ferrocious critics of Obasanjo were Yorubas. And even when other Nigerians criticised him, Yorubas did not make any threats. In fact, Yorubas wept because they said that giving Obasanjo the presidency in the name of giving it to Yorubas was like robbing the Yorubas. That is why Obasanjo and his candidates lose in every election in his own ward, local govt and state. And had he not killed Bola Ige, his Presidency would never have survived beyond 2003 as the AD – well supported by the Yorubas – would have dealt with him at the 2003 polls, which was why he killed Bola Ige who would have been wholly supported by the Yoruba people. But today, even when Jonathan comes on national television to stoutly and bullishly defend obvious corruption and stealing by a minister that has 5 official indictments for stealing of public funds since 2007, you would hear Niger Deltans saying “leave our son alone or we will take our oil”. It’s simply too low. Meanwhile, the ethnicists from Niger Delta are also victims of the same incompetence that they are defending. Who would have thought that Bodo Community in Niger Delta would be condemned to seeking justice from UK courts when their own son is the Commander-in-Chief? But they know he signed away their oil block (OPL 245) to Mohammed Abacha and Don Etiebet for a paltry share of the heist. Even as a Niger Deltan, Jonathan is busy planting serious ethnic rifts and fissures in his own region by using his Presidential office to rob some parts of the region their oil wealth in order to transfer the property rights of those assets to his own preferred communities. So I don’t know any right-thinking person who would consider the Jonathan Presidency a good thing for the long-term well-being of Nigeria. Enough is enough, he has to go, unless we want to look even more “stoopid” in the eyes of the world. John McCain is telling us that we don’t have a government under this guy named Jonathan. And that was the only reason he started looking for the Chibok girls whom he ignored and mocked. Even when he decided that he would look for them, he needed a plea and a visit by a foreigner to beg him and convince him to visit or meet the families of the children that his failure and the failure of his army chiefs delivered into the hands of disgusting murderers who call themselves boko haram. Enough is really enough! Jonathan has been one terrible nightmare for me as a Nigerian.

    And this is not just about Buhari or Jonathan. In a democracy, there is no other way for the people to command the respect of their politicians other than by showing the politicians that they can actually fire a ruling government. Sacking Jonathan and his arrogant goons in 2015 would send a clear signal to APC that nobody will take rubbish from them too.

    • tuco

      “Even when he decided that he would look for them, he needed a plea and a visit by a foreigner to beg him and convince him to visit or meet the families of the children” – in addition, he needed a small female child, a teenager and foreigner for that matter to come all over in order to beg and convince him.

      Thank you my dear brother , your comment and analysis gives me hope and restoration that at lest we still have a few people left with brain and guts in this our country that has been raped and bastardised like never before in her history .

    • Rico

      A balanced comment and well presented, honestly, there is nothing else to say more than this, there are far too many sensible facts in it than to quote just one, this is a piece that should be kept for reflection and with your permission for repost, especially the last paragraph.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      True Nigerian, I know I should be in Church as a Christian at this moment in time, instead of reading about Nigerian problems on PT.

      But I am sure God would still hear my prayers nevertheless – “May you remain ever blessed and favoured in God’s sight for this undiluted outpouring of truth. Amen”

      Like you, I marched and carried placards for this person, but never believed in his competence for a moment – it was just a question of principles and natural justice.

      Once the majority of Nigerians gave him their votes, I wished him all the best and kept my fingers crossed.

      Now I have to keep my legs crossed so as not to wet myself in public every time I log on to read Nigerian news – of course, we all know it is only bad news that has been coming from this Goodluck government!

      What an irony of names!!

      Aptly put, better than I would have since I curse the mumu with any opportunity and every in line…
      Jaja Dumbo started off with a mentality of ‘our-turn-to-chop’ and surrounded himself with wachos from the Naija Delta. Their ferocity was why I call it “Naija Delta” as the oil belongs to all of us. From their so-called elders (Clark & Anenih) to street urchins, they threw away decorum and have attracted nothing but venom and despise to your region. But, calm down, Nigerians are not all “stoopid” and know quite well that a gift from the devil can only be of evil. Dumbo is Obasanjo’s jinx on Nigeria and we must break it come 2015. Someone good can still come out of ol’ Brass Region… RESPECT!

    The poll is a true reflection of yelling of Nigerians. Let’s the polling booths be open for us to demonstrate our desire for true change. As for our corrupt leaders, I hope they have packed their luggages, ready to go to exile or to prison, because Buhari must bring them all to justice.

  • charles

    It’s foolhardy to suffice that these two different online poll did not reflect the reality on ground…thats living in fools paradise…truth be told Nigerians have grown up…now know what the truth is all about…no matter how bitter and have now been galvanised to stand for a change…thats what you are seeing…thats exactly what you ll get come Feb 14th next year…its the ultimate outcome of a negative fed. government score card…a hard lesson for future would be leaders!

  • Shehu Monguno

    I just hope this poll wont be like the one in Ekiti State that gave Ex-Governor Fayemi 80% of the vote only for Ex-Governor Fayemi to loss in his own local government. To rest the validity of the above poll I tried voting several times. I have been able to vote for President Johnathan and General Buhari 52 times each form the same computer. In Polls run by serious polling agencies someone can not vote twice from the same computer

    • Preye

      all the polls in ekiti state showed fayemi was losing …. even the APC conducted a poll and the result was the same … stop trying to rewrite history

      • WWBlogger2

        Now, I am getting real confused. I thought we were all surprised when the Ekiti results were announced.

      • Shehu Monguno

        The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has been rated as the best candidate to win the June 21 gubernatorial poll.
        The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate scored 85.29 per cent to beat other aspirants in a poll conducted by Ekitipanupo, an indigenous and influential network of Ekiti people at home and in the Diaspora.

        The co-ordinators of the poll and leader and secretary of the forum respectively, Professor Akin Oyebode of the University of Lagos and Mr.Kunle Oladele said the poll was conducted as a milestone intervention in the sustainable development in the state.

        In the poll which was conducted by the secretariat of the forum and in which members participated by voting online, the aspirants scored as follows – Dr. Kayode Fayemi of APC 85.29 per cent; Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele of the Labour Party 11.76 per cent; Mr.
        Ayodele Fayose of PDP 2.94 per cent and Mr. Kole Ajayi of Accord Party 0 per cent.

        The group said the poll became necessary pursuant to the role of Ekitipanupo as the indigenous Ekiti people’s parliament. The result of the poll also showed that 51.61 per cent voted YES for continuity of the progress recorded so far while 45.16 per cent voted YES with amends where necessary in order to avoid past misdeeds and 85.29 per cent voted in favour of endorsing Dr.
        John Kayode Fayemi for re-election for a second term as Governor of Ekiti State.

        Coordinators of the poll, Professor Akin Oyebode and Mr. Kunle Oladele, Leader and Secretary of the group respectively, they said, “Ekitipanupo, as the foremost, all-inclusive Ekiti socio-political group and indigenous intellectual roundtable that
        parades the best of the indigenes as members, representing most of the 131 towns in Ekiti State. – DAILY INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER

      • Shehu Monguno

        A recent opinion poll conducted by a local research company, Brand Surveys Ltd, has rated incumbent Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, as the preferred candidate by a majority of registered voters in Ekiti State. The poll result made available to
        newsmen in Lagos and signed by its Managing Consultant, Olaniyi Ayeni, showed that the study was conducted last month (May) across the 16 local government areas of Ekiti State.

        According to the result, a majority of respondents representing 68 per cent of the people interviewed via questionnaire survey using multi-stage random sampling technique, across the 16 LGs of Ekiti State want the incumbent governor, Fayemi to continue in office to consolidate on the different spheres of his 8-point agenda, adjudged as touching the lives of the Ekiti People. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Mr. Ayo Fayose, was preferred by 28 per cent of respondents while his Labour Party counterpart Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele scored 4 per cent in the poll. – THISDAY NEWSPAPER

  • Enemona

    I just can’t wait to cast my vote against this very corrupt government. No quarter goes by without, at least, one scandal. This is the government that has rubbished many of our important institutions. The judiciary was rubbished, impunity carried the day, judges are beaten in their courts, court injunctions and orders are not respected. The military was disgraced and weakened and this is the Nigerian military that has been touted as one of the best in Africa in terms of ground combat. EFCC was made to chase only petty thieves like bank looters who loot, at most, single units of millions and petty thieves who steal small amounts, not that these ones should not be brought to justice but it is wrong if people who steal huge amounts running to billions of Naira walk free on the streets and are given national ‘merit’ awards.

    I can go on and on but I will stop here. I have scouring the internet on anything to show my anger by casting my ‘vote of no confidence’ on this government. I am fed up of it. This a government for which I had high hopes for but I am extremely disappointed. My disappointment quickly turned to anger and now it is a huge outrage and the only way I can help myself and my two beautiful daughters’ future is to boot them out for someone who, at least, from past records, can restore Nigeria’s institutions or lay the foundation for a better Nigeria.

    Make no mistake, I do no think Buhari is te best Nigeria can offer but he is the one we need now. A corruption-free individual that is not entrenched or fully vested in the thieving elites. A man who is not gaining from the rot in Nigeria, a man who has the clout to fight the people holding back the country, someone who has nothing to lose. A man who has a pathological hatred for corruption, a man who has lived a spartan life and has shunned excessive acquisition of wealth. The political space is full greedy people who are out to maintain the status quo or even milk the country further and I need not look too far to see someone quite different from the crowd.. Buhari is my choice and I do not owe anybody any apologies for this, I will vote for him irrespective of the lies been peddled around to derail him. I will vote for him no matter his religion and where he comes from.. I will vote for him for the “content of his character” and not where he comes from, his tongue or his creed. You can say what you want, my mind is made up! I am voting against the current government and for Buhari.

  • gbolly

    please read this and be informed that GMB is tested and trusted. @ all if u are in support of GMB forward this to as many Nigerian youths as you can.WHO IS AFRAID OF BUHARI?
    This is written because of millions of
    Nigerians who are below 30 and who
    constitute a significant chunk of our voting population.
    This is the ICT generation that is largely ignorant about the events of the Buhari era (1983-85) and so can be
    misinformed and misled by needless
    propaganda. Many in
    the under-30 bracket and those slightly above who only have faint recollections
    of the Buhari era and the level of
    ignorance about that era is amazing. They only think of UEFA, la LIGA and WWF!
    Before being MILITARY Head of State, Buhari had been Governor of one of the Northern States (under Obasanjo’s Military government) as well as Minister for Petroleum. He later
    served as Chairman of PTF under Abacha.
    Please consider the following unassailable facts:
    ·He birthed and supervised the
    establishment of our existing refineries.
    ·There was no religious crisis while he was Head of State. It started under his successor, IBB!
    ·In his time as Head of State he reduced inflation from 23% to 4%, by fiscal discipline and a homegrown economic
    team (not achieved under any other era, even military).
    ·JJ Rawlings of Ghana took over 2 years before him, and killed all the corrupt leaders, while Buhari only sentenced the corrupt leaders here to prison.
    ·Under his watch as PTF Chairman, what he did in road construction in that
    short period hasn’t been matched by 12 years of the PDP.
    ·Hospitals and universities around the country never witnessed as much
    benefits as they got from the PTF from
    any government after or before his time.
    ·Despite serving in senior capacity in
    the oil sector, first as Minister for
    Petroleum and then Petroleum Trust
    Fund, Buhari has no petrol station, much less a rig, refinery or an oil block like so many of our leaders.
    ·He could have retired into nauseating opulence like an IBB or Danjuma or even OBJ, but didn’t.
    ·Instead of hobnobbing with the high and mighty, he has cast his lot with the ordinary man most of who follow him out of hope and belief in his values. People who know him have said of him, “All I need from Buhari is his word, I can take it to the bank”.
    ·He is the only politician in the North today who fills rallies without renting a crowd. The Kaduna rally of 2nd March is eloquent proof!
    ·He refused to collect an allowance
    while serving as Chairman of the PTF
    because he said since he was already
    drawing a pension from government,
    his conscience would not allow him to draw another salary from the purse of the same government.
    ·He is the only former head of state
    that does not own property or land in
    Abuja.
    ·Every attempt to rubbish him through
    probes in time past eneded up vindicating him! The man who was asked by OBJ to take over the running
    of PTF before it was scrapped with the
    aim of probing and indicting Buhari, was the one who ended up being prosecuted
    for misappropriating $100m of PTF
    funds! Buhari again, was vindicated.
    ·He has OPENLY challenged those who
    accuse him of religious fundamentalism to come out and show proof. No one has till today, taken up the challenge. His personal driver of many years is a
    Christian from Plateau State !
    ·His government initiated the War
    Against Indiscipline that has made
    environmental cleanliness, queuing up, not urinating by the roadside, etc
    features of our national life even till
    today Does it then surprise you why
    corrupt people would be spreading such heinous rumours about Buhari? He is a threat to them and they know what he is capable of doing to corruption and corrupt people when he comes into office! So shine your eyes and make the right decision. If honesty and probity are the things you want for
    Nigeria, now is the time to choose right. When you cast your vote for BUHARI, you would have cast one vote for a honest man.

      • Tonnero

        Agreed. But we have to find ways to make sure the rigging does not happen whether at the polling centers, the collation centers or at the point of announcement. We also have to watch out for systematic disenfranchisement as happened in Anambra. Any ideas?

    Besides being divisive and dangerous to the nation, I had cause to warn that the religion line being pushed by PDP and the President’s men may turn a boomerang. What if the North, with a more dominant Muslim population and more tolerant of religion in their social life (as evidenced by the tolerance of the Sharia), believe them and pour their votes for the “Sharia Man” but the South is less convinced of any “janjaweed”? But what do I know? I am definitely not a communication guru!

  • tsunami1earthquake

    Very smug feeling here. Campaigning has not even been formally declared open and here is Sahara Reporters conducting an opinion poll. Is it opinion poll as a copy of what is done in the USA? I don’t root for any of the men but, all the same, this is only academic. Maybe Buhari would be popping open champagne bottles now but he must remember he still has many rivers to cross. Firstly, his political party has not yet declared him the presidential candidate of the party. Secondly, the resurgent hostility initiated by the Boko Haram will surely deal a deadly blow on Buhari should he emerge as the APC’s presidential candidate. Buhari must try to use all influence under his care to rein in on these bastards, the Boko Haram, otherwise he should forget everything about being the president.

    • endingNaija

      But Reno Omokri alias Wendel (the main sponsor of most of the fictitious online PDP/Goodluck Jonathan names) is a paid employee of President Goodluck Jonathan. Reno Omokri alias Wendel is a paid advisor of President Jonathan on New Media and Facebook. And Omokri ran the same poll on Buhari ati Jonathan noooooow! Abi which one you dey? So if Sahara did it, it is wrong. But if Wendel Reno Omokri does it, it is right? Why do people think the way you think? It does not make sense. ah ah ah!

      How come you didn’t see or comment on the poll being conducted by Reno Omokri ? Obviously corrupt leech like you are scared of Buhari and you should rightly be so !

  • MrFesh

    At the moment it is buhari 49.45 and GEJ 48.13 undecided 2% . Just look and see how GEJ will eventually trump.

    This is characteristic of Nigerian journalism : rushing to press with half news cos it reflects their views/bias at that point.

    We are watching.

    • endingNaija

      How many times did you vote?

      • MrFesh

        Once. You can’t even vote twice without going to elaborate pains kiddo. It takes into account your browser and MAC but an illiterate like you will tell yourself there’s is multi voting cos you dunno how IT works . When GMB was in the lead earlier there was no issues. Hopeless guys. it’s simple, GEJ voters were alerted and they went in and voted. Don’t be too mad. Watch as GEJ soars past GMB and then gently go and swim in the lagoon. Don’t touch any transformer. We don’t want a mess.

    • Maria

      With multiple votings… the poll is not credible.

      • endingNaija

        But MrFesh has not answered the question how many times he voted on Mr. Wendel Reno Omokri(President Jonathan’s new Media and Facbook adviser) site? MrFesh how many times you vote NoW since Reno Omokri site is a reflection of the kind of voting President Jonathan’s PDP organizes-vote as many times as you want-Ekiti State style? So how many times you don vote? And when you dey go back to re-vote? Dis una PDP sef. I don tire for una party. Nigerians don tire for PDP!!! You voted many times and you came running that your candidate Goodluck Jonathan is “winning” Na wa for PDP ooo

        • MrFesh

          I voted once. Over and above that I let me people know about the voting so those who wanted to will join in. Now how many times did you vote?

          If I’m able to vote twice for one candidate then I can as well be able to do it for the other so quit that puerile ‘double voting’ excuse.

      • MrFesh

        Did you vote multiple times?
        If GEJ voters did multiple time how won’t GMB voters do same?

        When it was GMB in the lead it was uhuru for some people. The same group cries foul when the poll got more traction and the real picture emerged.

        Quit whining. Same thing will happen in 2015. You can’t call a winner until the votes are all in. That’s common sense.

        • Maria

          What did you mean by did you vote many times? Does allowing multiple voting give credence to the socalled online polls? The poll by reno omokri is not credible because it allows multiple voting… period.
          By the way, in this online poll, who determines when all the votes come in? Keep deceiving yourselves… Jonathan is finished…he cant win northwest and he cant win south west… that I can assure him.. no matter your planned rigging…we shall resist you.

    • tundemash

      Fraudulent poll organised by crooked GEJ ide, Reno Omokri that allows multiple vote from same PC. How many times did u vote crooked MrFesh ?

      • MrFesh

        Forget the ‘Reno Omokri’ handle talking thrash there. It is done APC maniac up to that. Anyone can take any handle they want and day whatever they want to say. Follow the poll and get the picture. You can also see ‘Patience Jonathan’ there too. Don’t be over gullible. Even a primary school kid knows this.

        • tundemash

          You are d@ft and that is typical of the GEJ e-rats. If not, just go to www dot buildupnigeria dot com. The poll is there and check the About menu and see hwo owns the website. Hope u would come back here and display your ignorance again Mr. da@ft

          • MrFesh

            I guess it takes a d@ft to identify another. Kudos.

          • tundemash

            Mr. d@ft …. have you been to the site ? The info is there; Stop displaying your stupidity. You claimed, as usual, the poll was APC organised. Clown !

          • MrFesh

            Prove your lie. Paraphrase where I said that. That’s a dare. Use a screen grab with power+vol down on a droid or capture screen on your PC keyboard. Wipe your shame. You have a chance. Just this once.

    • Elnas

      Hahahahhaaa….if u have been following the poll, you will realise the initiator is not intent in getting an honest result but an engineered outcome to show to his boss. First of all, online polls are not meant to last more than 24 hrs. If u want to establish consistency, u can carry it as much as u like. This poll has been on for about 3 days now. The result of the 1st 2 days is very revealing. This is not a poll done by region, so it will be highly questionable for Buhari to lead by such huge margin in the 1st 2 days only for Goodluck to speedily catchup in the 3rd day. I still dey lafff!!

      • MrFesh

        A goat will declare a winner when votes have not been fully cast. Bad belle. This is how the victory will come come 2015. The diary hours and moments of voting is not the dealer making time. Premature ejaculation is a problem so don’t think it is normal.

      • MrFesh

        I for one didn’t even know of the poll until almost 48hrs and no thanks to premium Times. That’s when I voted and told friends too. Do you see how one can be in the lead one minute and trumped the next?

        Forget the double voting crap. The servers take into account your ISP and MAC address so good luck with double voting.

        Tell us all here is you were able to vote twice let’s hear you.

    • Enemona

      Mr Wendell Simlin at work. Having found out the shellacking the result has already changed so drastically in less than 24 hrs. The internet rent-boys have been put to work. Rigging has started in earnest.

      • deji

        Unlike the Sahara reporters poll that you can not vote twice from the same computer, this Wendell smith poll allows one person to vote as many times as you would like. Jonathan and his gang of thieves are nocturnal animals. They thrive and operate in darkness, being children of lucifer that they are.

      • MrFesh

        Keep deciding yourself. Try voting twice and come back and tell us how you succeeded. When it was young and buhari in the lead you goons were making noise. Now that it had gotten traction and now people become aware and gone in to lend their voice the true pixie if coming on and suddenly it is wrong! Get a life punk!

      • MrFesh

        Keep whining.
        Same way it will happen in 2015.
        You call a vote when the results are in not before.
        Simple and common sense.

  • Wise Head

    This is another prelude to disaster, something that would fire Buhari up to instigate violence if he loses again. Some of these actions are irresponsible considering the volatile nature of Nigeria: Who would vote for Buhari in Nigeria when he has been too arrogant to try to remedy the horrible image his alleged religious intolerance has given him, or tried to apologise for the mass deaths from the violence his statements are believed to have caused? How many of the people who would vote in this election have ever visited Sahara Reporters, let alone bothered about the so-called poll? Any group or body with enough idle hands to go round can easily arrange to “win” such a poll. And we know where the idle hands are in large numbers.

  • Daddy

    It was even out of context for Sahara Reporters to compare Buhari with the President. Buhari is not yet a presidential condidate. They would have compared him with Atiku and Kwankwaso to see whether he will floor them in their primaries. It was just a yellow journism to carry out that poll since no body knows whether Buhari will get the ticket of his party. For several elections, Sahara Reporters and their likes have been deceiving Buhari that he has acceptance in Nigeria. They should know that the acceptance of Buhari in the North West means acceptance in the whole country. Enough of the decepts of the likes of Sahara that has always been costing the lives of innocent Nigerians anytime Buhari does win elections.
    Sahara reporters should concentrated their polls on knowing whether Buhari is more popular in APC than Atiku and Kwankwaso.

  • Sarah Samuel

    What is transformation? “is the mark of change in appearance or character ” AND what is Change? “the process of becoming different” base on the comparism and definition of the two words above APC should redefined their purpose and stop replicating PDP agenda

    with the stated clearity above, if APC said PDP are bad and corrupt party then they to are corrupt and bad why because they are replicating PDP
