Buhari meets former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, in London

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday held a meeting with a former Prime Minister of Britain, Tony Blair, in London.

Mr. Buhari met Mr. Blair in company with Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, and a former Governor of Kwara, Bukola Saraki, who tweeted a group photograph of participants at the meeting.

“Just finished a meeting with @Govsia @ThisIsBuhari and @tonyblairoffice,” Mr. Saraki, an incumbent senator, wrote.

It is not clear what Mr. Buhari discussed with Mr. Blair at the meeting.

Mr. Saraki apparently tweeted the picture to challenge tales being spread by supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party that Mr. Buhari is in the United Kingdom for medical reason.

Mr. Buhari’s campaign had on Friday announced that Mr. Buhari had departed for the U.K. on a short working visit.

The statement said in the course of the visit, Mr. Buhari would hold meetings with key members of the British political establishment and interact with some global institutions with interest in the affairs of Nigeria.

“General Buhari will hopefully give a talk at the prestigious foreign policy hub, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House in London, the spokesperson for his campaign, Garba Shehu, said.

But shortly afterwards, the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, issued a statement, accusing the APC of lying about Mr. Buhari’s itinerary in the U.K. and alleging that the candidate was in London for medical treatment.

Mr. Fayose, a core loyalist of President Jonathan, has continued to spread tales that Mr. Buhari is sick and incapable of governing.

Mr. Buhari has however continued to insist that he is well and fit to govern and that the health and death of everyone is in the hands of God.

The APC presidential candidate had on January 23 cancelled a visit to the United States, which would have seen him speak at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, CSIS, which invited him.

The organisation’s Director of African Programme, Jennifer Cooke, told PREMIUM TIMES at the time that Mr. Buhari cancelled the trip because of a change in his schedule.

Messrs. Buhari and Jonathan, both frontrunners in the coming presidential election, were invited by the organisation to speak on Nigeria’s future.

    After Feb 14, it has since become a child’s play. this one say, this one say. It’s so painful to see this thieves playing around with state funds. What has a governor and senator that are supposed to be at work following Buhari taking pictures to shut critics up. Na wao, too much money. Wicked politicians

    • Progress

      So meeting opinion makers is not working?

    • Mrtao

      But, is perfect for GEJ to keep looking for endorsement up and down the country?

    • segun

      Oh! Ayo Fayose ati Goodluck Jonathan, so after seeing the photograph which shows how vile and indecent you Goodluck Jonathan and Ayo Fayose can be, the step is to change the issue. Right? I think it is more honorable for you Goodluck Jonathan to insist on the health thru your pathetic cronies like Ayo Fayose. Goodluck Jonathan, you are a dishinest person for changing your line about Buhari’s trip to UK after you saw this picture. Goodluck Jonathan, you are incurably dishonest. This is the reason Nigerian voters will ask you to leave in March.

        Tony Blair is not a British government official anymore. His anointed successor, Gordon Brown, lost woefully. Is this a club of losers, the espirit de corp of political failures? One would expec these people to meet with visionary politicians and learn about success than with those from whom they will learn how to fail.
        But, a detailed forensic look shows what could pass for a cut and paste photo job, similar to Buhari’s WASC “equivalent” certificate that went viral. It seems a Tony Blair’s head was transposed and pasted over another white person’s body. An Amosun must have had all the time in the world to be fully dressed, with a tie on. But e Bukola Saraki slipped hurriedly into rumpled clothes, forgot a tie…. in the raw English winter weather.
        We can understand why Buhari cannot have suit on. Going by rumors that the man has prostate issues and wears a urine bag, suit would not be the best idea; it will expose the bulgy bag fitted to his ‘abuna’ by a catheter to contain his uncontrollable urination.
        . Although quite thoughtful, it is no surprise that Saraki -a medical doctor- is in the entourage to help with the management of Buhari’s immediate medical needs, such as keeping the urine bag in place.We wish then every luck.

  • Garden-City Boy

    Oh my God!!!!! A man is so sick, so drain, but Tinubu and his henchmen will stop at nothing to run Buhari aground. Amosun and Saraki be warned. You took this man out alive; make sure he returns standing his two feet, not in a body-bag. There has to be a limit to this mischief act. In as much as we hate for Buhari to be President and despise him for his indiscretion, corruption history, fraudulent, and innumerable inadequacies, we would rather have him alive and coast naturally to his finish line, than for band of self-seeking musketeers to run him to his untimely death…in order to make hay.
    Nigeria owns Buhari, not Tinubu and Saraki. Should he give up the ghost in these circumstances, these men have serious questions to answer. High profile ‘;gbe omo- gbe omo’ is about to unfold before our own very eyes. Tinubu and his boys must not do this to a mediocre -a 3-time reject and a hard sell they know that is unelectable. Their sinister motives must not prevail.


    Saraki should also tweet from the clinic in Cavendish square if indeed he wants to be honest to Nigerians !!

  • Tufiakwa

    Is this the change they are speaking about? For Bokohari’s information, Tony Blair, as of today, has zero reputation in British politics because of his war crimes in Iraq, his dealings with Ghadafi and other shady business dealings around the world.


      Well for Buhari the ex tyrant and prolific human rights violator,any personality would do .The Brits still remember how he planned the kidnap of Umaru Dikko from the streets of Croydon,they have a long memory so most members of the British establishment would rather avoid being associated with such brutal and blood-thirsty ex-tyrant !!

      • tunji

        I am sure your father stole and Buhari jailed the bastard.

    • Life is Good

      Tony Blair unlike your unknown ancestors left Britain as one of their most remarkable leaders in history, you must be a baby as at then. Your brother Jonathan will be leaving Aso Rock come May 29th as the MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT EVER ON THE PLANET!

    Buhari is supposed to be taller than any of these gentlemen in the picture regardless of any position of photographer. It doesn’t look like a real picture. He could not have been the height with Tony Blair. Buhari looks a short man

  • Kanoute

    Why is Senator Bukola Saraki taller than Buhari in this picture?

  • BlackieUmukoro

    For long APC was on top of the game of spreading falshood truthfully, now Fayose has beaten them to the game and they are now scampering for cover. Tony Blair is expired, buhari should meet with happening guys, before he can be taken serious

    • Maitama Tambari

      Umukoro, you are always a lier and a cheat. Ayo Fayose only ridiculed himself with his paid photographer Agent in London because if you notice the photo taken of GMB, unless you are not a visitor of London, which I sincerely believe from your reaction you are not, the HEALTH CONTROL sign is always at the exists of Heathrow and Gartwick Airports. Look at the photo again, you will see Air Hostess standing by the entrance. Clinic or Hospital are not as distinct as you thought it might be and Ayo Fayose Agent could not get any photograph because Fayose is a dommy, confused and afraid of what will happen to his stomach infrastructure investment before the Supreme Court, reason of his following and backing President Jonathan as his savior. Clinics and Hospitals in London look normal with other residential houses, you dummy Umukoro? GMB Has stolen the show, and pulled the rug right under the PDP who are busy with one false idea on GMB or the other. Shifting of election or forming Interim Government. Nor end, PDP is so confused that its Presidential Candidate commissioned some Navy Boats and said the end of BH is near when BH operates in the far North, desert area where the only water of any consequent to the Boats and the Navy is Lake Chad, the only body of fresh water in the World because it has no connection with the sea or ocean where the President commissioned the boats. PDP President, embarking on commissioning uncompleted projects, commissioned an electricity project for 750 MW and claimed fulfilling his promise of 2011 for adequate power supply. What is 750 MW when the city of Dubai in UAE was consuming 2500 MW in 2005? Nay. PDP Presidential Candidate now said for Nigerians to have adequate light we have to wait until 2018 which he told us in 2011 that electricity would be his priority. I am now sitting in my living room sweating and the family outside sitting under a tree. CHANGE! YES WE CAN.

    Before you vote for a muslim, consider what revered former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill wrote about Islam:

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die: Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. [5] Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome”
    If you search on Google, you will find that same article on hundreds of web pages.

    Boo hoo! The picture above reminds one of a certain forged certificate with fictitious grades superimposed along a juxtaposed photoshop. Indeed a botched piece of work meant to impress minions and silence critics.

    In real life Mohamed/Muhammadu Boohari is taller than all those politicians meant to be standing with him. Despite the fact that the devil is a liar, he ca still testify to APC members that Imam Boohari is taller than Mr Blair. Let APC chieftains allow the man to rest in the hospital has has already paid for.

    If he actually met with Mr Blair, what is the purpose? It will be like traveling all the way from Nigeria to US to meet with Dick Cheney, Mitt Romney, and Farouk Abdul Mutallab. Useless.

    • Omo Akin

      You are confused. What is Tony Blair’s height? The angle from which a group photographer takes a photograph can affect the head line of the people in the photograph.
      It became necessary to publish this because your Fayose was saying that Buhari was not on a working visit to UK but in a hospital. Do you now get the purpose?
      For Fayose and all of you who are wishing death to Buhari, all of you will receive a full measure of what you are wishing him now and not later. Buhari will outlast all of you.

    • August January

      Paining you so much that PDP and Jonathan are history already! The statement issued by APC about the trip, did you believe it, just because one mentally impaired person called Fayose came up with his usual despicable lies? Gullible fools!

  • endingNaija

    I thought Goodluck Jonathan changed his New Media Adviser-Reno Omokri. The posts here by members of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Team are still pathetic and un-intelligent. These posts do not reflect a change. It may just mean that Goodluck Jonathan said he was changing his New Media Adviser Reno Omokri because he-Reno Omokri had acquired notoriety. In other words Goodluck Jonathan’s sectional and sadistic message is still the same but the messenger might have changed. I am just wondering if Goodluck Jonathan knows that he lost the 2015 election right from about 2013 when his online posts started appearing under names such as Mani_kay, mpitikwelu, Peter 2000, Gideon Orkar, oleku deri, etc. Those posts have the message “Other Nigerians are lazy, we own the oil, it is the sweet oil in my backyard, amalgamation was a mistake, amalgamation ended etc” I am just wondering if Goodluck Jonathan who is presently desperately running around the country especially the western part of our country now desperately and dubiously looking for votes know that he-Goodluck Jonathan- lost the support of Nigerians from about two years ago 2012/2013- through un-intelligent, sadistic, sectional, tribalistic, offensive and regional posts of dead and resurrected names we see here now. I am saying this because some of the new boys hired in the yahoo yahoo cyber cafe by the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Team may not know the depth of the rejection of Goodluck Jonathan and may not be able to explain why. Even Goodluck Jonathan himself may not be able to explain why. Again, with the posts here which are no different from the Goodluck Jonathan posts from 2012/2013/2014/2015, I am just wondering if Goodluck Jonathan knows where the rain started BEATING HIM. Whoever has a sense of history among the defenders of Goodluck Jonathan
    should throw their minds back to the miserable Goodluck Jonathan
    posts from 2013. I am offering a historical view here with a broad stroke just so that we all know what we are dealing with. With the kind of posts we are reading here by Goodluck Jonathan no decent African country (no to talk of countries beyond Africa where governance standards and vision are very high) can and will ever have Goodluck Jonathan as president. With these posts here by Goodluck Jonathan, Goodluck Jonathan represents the worst calamity and plague in governance that has ever happened to any African country. This is the reason, Nigerian voters are devoted to the exit of Goodluck Jonathan.

    • endingNaija

      I conclude by asking again: DOES GOODLUCK JONATHAN REALLY KNOW WHERE THE RAIN STARTED BEATING HIM? IS GOODLUCK JONATHAN INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN THE RAIN STARTED BEATING HIM? I am leaving this as an open ended question because of the dramatic and abysmal nature of the radical failure of intelligence in governance in Goodluck Jonathan’s presidency.

    “Buhari meets former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, in London

    Does the APC think that this meeting with Bliar is a good publicity
    for Buhari? Well, they are NIGERIANS, ignorant as usual.

    Bliar is so hated in the UK, not many UK politicians would want to be
    seen with him — as least not in front of the camera.

    • Lenz

      Yes, they are as ignorant as GEJ’s campaign that has recruited felons and persons of questionable character including know mental patients (Alameseigha, Fani Kayode, etc.) as chief members of their political campaign staff…

      I’m not sure very many Nigerians (besides the ‘clueless’ one and perhaps your honorable self) want to be seen with such people either – in front of a camera or otherwise..

      • thusspokez

        You NIGERIANS love your silly assumptions very much, don’t you? You need to broaden your small binary mind.

    • Tayo

      If you don’t realize what Tony Blair and Bill Clinton represent in the realm of liberal political thinking you are at liberty to say what you wish. There are things more important than just one election. Today if any of the candidates pose with Bill Gate, he is villified by people who hardly know a thing about him. Anyway your appraisal of great men say more about you than they say about those men!

      • thusspokez

        “…represent in the realm of liberal political thinking

        What does this mean? Tony Bliar is not a Liberal — more of a centre-right politician when he was prime-minister and has since moved further to the right since he left politics.

        Further, I hope you are aware that “liberal” is interpreted differently in US and Europe. That is to say, that they are not the same thing.

  • Opobo Kingdom


    Do you see what I see? Bokohari can’t even stand properly. The 2 men are lending him a helping hand to keep him on his feet. They should allow Pappy to rest. This is not fair.

    31 yrs ago, Duncee introduced kidnapping to Nigeria when he endorsed a state sponsored kidnap/terrorism on British soil. The event: An attempted kidnap of Umaru Dikko who was alleged to have embezzled some money. But Maggie’s eagle eyed policemen were smarter and they mission by Duncee was botched. The crooks were arrested after they had drugged their target to coma. Britain should take a deep bite now and prosecute he who once directed a Kidnapping ring.

    PT shud stop this propaganda. Since yesterday where has he been? He was seen at an hospital & you re saying nothing about that? Is it Buhari meets Tony Blair or Tony Blair meets Buhari in Hospital? By the way, what is the relevance of Tony Blair? Is he afraid of the current YOUNGEE British PM who is the age of his Grand Son?

    This is a face saving gesture by apc. They know they goofed by saying buhari would be speaking at an event when he really went for medical treatment .They did not tell us he would meet with Tony Blair, what they told us was that he would speak at an event. Besides Tony Blair is the last person anybody vying for a political position should meet. Tony Blair is this close to being charged with war crimes for the part he played with bush to invade iraq, he has been summoned so many times by the British parliament.He is the worst prime minister in history, he left with the worst rating in history, Tony Blair has no political relevance in the UK let alone in Nigeria, exactly what would tony Blair help buhari achieve?

            Your ranting is incoherent, pdp is the ruling party, your imaginary friend may tell you otherwise but it does not change the facts, if apc was so sure of themselves, why did they insist in going ahead with the election when 23 million has not collected pvc and lagos that is supposed to be tinubus stronghold recorded just 40% pvc distribution ?

          • Festus

          It is a shame the length GEJ and PDP has gone in desperation to hold on to power. Jona has been going about worshipping in different churches weekly during this campaign, including our own church, places he never thought of going all these while.God is not mocked.Even when Chibok girls were kidnapped he didn’t feel he needed God for assistance. Fayose went to the extent of public advertorial to wish Buhari dead. PDP went to the extent of forging ABUTH medical report against Buhari. So who is manifesting desperation between PDP and APC

          • evi

            You are concerned about chibok girls that shettima planned with boko haram to abduct but you have forgotten the youth corpers that Buhari sent his supporters to kill in 2011 because they refused to allow children and illegals to vote. You have forgotten that Buhari was always on hausa BBC and different mosques and Muslims gatherings advocating for Islam and implementation of sharia .buhari has even joined recently Jonathan to start attending church events, the same Buhari and apc that criticised Jonathan for going to church has copied Jonathan, Jonathan is a christian and he is always invited for programmes ,so he should not go because of you and don’t deceive anybody here that you are a Christian,you are a terrorist like your buhari. Buhari is the one that collapsed at calabar,he forgot the name of his running mate in owerri,he cannot stand and talk for five minutes, so you guys want to take us back to the Yardua years?apc is the one that paid Jega billions to disenfranchise 23 million voters from the south to give victory to buhari through the back door,who is more desperate here?

      Why don’t you direct this question to the criminal ruling us.

      • evi

        There is no criminal worse than tinubu and buhari who hid all his loot abroad and is pretending to be poor .where are the 53 suitcases containing hard currencies belonging to buhari that was intercepted at the airport when he was head of state? Where is the 25 billion that he stole through his wife’s brother when he was PTF chairman?

        • August January

          Paining you!

          • evi

            What is paining me? A result forger quota system general, that is reaping all the atrocities he sowed? That rather that retire to his village and face the prostrate cancer that is worrying him,wants to die in his quest to rule Nigeria .Buhari is even suffering more from the consequences of his tyranny than the prostrate cancer and if one does not kill him, the other will. He cannot escape God’s vengeance

          • August January

            Your BP is rising already because of the disgrace God has brought upon you again! The way you’re going, you and Fayose may even die before Buhari — that is part of the mystery of death

          • evi

            You are the one suffering from BP because you are the one that is allover the place, posting inane comments, you have nothing constructive or intelligent to post .you don’t even know why you support buhari other than he is your fellow terrorist brother. Buhari will not die now, death would be an easy way out for him. He would be alive to face ICC and go to jail for crimes against humanity when he was head of state and for war crimes for supporting and sponsoring boko haram

          • August January

            Don’t worry. God still has more disgrace in stock for you. Go back to the drawing board with Fayose and cook up more lies. God is fully awake to give you more of the disgrace

          • evi

            God’s vengeance is already upon buhari, that is why buhari is ready to die in his quest to become president instead of him to face the prostrate cancer upon him,see how long it took buhari to start paying for his atrocities,he dint know that God will wait for him to be almost close to the presidency and strike him with a terminal illness and make him face his atrocities when he was head of state and his support for boko haram and their cause. God is already involved in this matter and buhari cannot run away from God’s wrath.

          • Arrest warrant

            Buhari could sick as any of us use to be,HUMAN NATURE ,That’s life my friend..GEJ is a drunkard, recently hospitalise for overdose,is he also drunk to say CORRUPTION IS NOT STEALING..this is the worse Christian president ever in Nigeria..

          • evi

            First of all,you are a complete illiterate like your terrorist brother, buhari, am sure both of you went to the same school.i prefer a drunk anyday to a blood thirsty, terrorist like buhari who jailed and sent people to firing squad without trial,someone who incited his supporters to kill youth corpers because they refused to allow children and illegals from niger and Chad to vote, someone who went ahead to hausa BBC to vow that should he lose again,both the blood of dogs and baboons would be soaked in blood. Someone who said any attack on boko haram.was an attack on the north. I will give you an example of corruption that is not stealing, now sleeping with a fellow man like you is corruption. Forging a statement of result like buhari did is corruption ,lying under oath like buhari did is a corrupt practice, their are lots of corrupt cases that is not stealing but what does it mean to an illiterate like you?

            You will die of hypertension by the time buhari loses again. This time you and buhari will not shed only tears,you will shed blood. You guys can dish it but you cannot take it. When you have nothing constructive or intelligent to contribute, you resort to inane and useless comments. My health status is definitely not like buhari’s who is suffering more from God’s judgement on him for his atrocities than from the prostrate cancer ravaging his body

          • Rudeboy777

            LOL this thing is really ‘paining’ these Jonothing o…First time in history that the West is endorsing the presidential candidate of an opposition party…If this doesn’t tell you JoNothing’s anything, then nothing will…LOL. Even you principal Gej knows the game is up, it’s too late now. There are certainly more of us than the JoNothing’s…Keep shouting from today till March 28th it won’t change the outcome of the elections, GMB will win with a landslide not because he’s the best candidate but because GEJ is more useless than a monkey so even APC had put a dog as their presidential candidate they will still win…Jonothing’s need to be very scared o…GMB is coming…as per ‘Oyel blocks’, the WEST already have Shell, Cheveron, Mobil etc so Blair doesn’t need an ‘Oyel block’. common sense.

          • Guest

            ….hmmm, you are on to something! last election people all over Nigeria regions voted overwhelming for President Jonathan, this coming election Nigerians will vote against him, anyone but Jonathan!

          • evi

            Tony Blair does not represent or speak for the West .tony Blair is fighting to even be politically relevant in his country ,he is under investigation for war crimes after invading iraq under false pretences, his party is not even the ruling party. tony Blair does not own shell or chevron or Mobil. Apc thought they had perfected their plan with Jega to disenfranchise 23 million voters from the south, that was why they insisted on Feb 14 election when even lagos recorded just 40% pvc distribution ,that was why they were making noise about buhari winning landslide but their plan is up in flames .if Jonathan is useless but is your president ,you that think you are useful, what have you achieved in your miserable life, if buhari that you are following blindly has lost three times to different candidates and is about to lose the fourth time, ain’t you the one that is useless and following a serial loser?

          • Rudeboy777

            HAHAHAHAHA You don’t know me so you can never know what i have achieved, its just paining you Jonothing’s that GEJ is going loose…Tony blair does represent the West, even the secretary of State in the US went to Nigeria to visit both Candidates, it has NEVER happened before, if this doesn’t tell you anything then i guess u know NOTHING about international politics…The elders in Nigeria have abandoned GEJ, the international community has abandoned him as well…his ONLY support base is in the South-south and South-east, he cannot win the election without the votes in the South-west, unfortunately for him he’s not getting the South west votes nor will he get the northern votes…GEJ has lost its better you and your goons accept the reality on ground and start planning how you will start addressing GMB as President Muhammadu Buhari the better…Keep insulting people it still won’t change the outcome…the most sensible thing is for you and your goons to ‘appeal’ for votes rather than insult..cos you know what? you are loosing more votes with all your silly insults…get sensible.

          • Tayo

            So the 60% that will now collect PVC in Lagos will vote PDP! The worst desease is delusion. It is incurable.

The darkness that surrounds you and your family has no way out for you because you support evil and abomination. People like us belong to the future where the younger generation are in charge of their destiny,our future is bright and we have refused to hand our destiny over to half dead and archaic buhari who has one foot in the grave .you can continue to live with buhari in the stone ages. We are going forward and not backwards.

      • Pause

        criminal, parasite and corrupt is Buhari who participated in skewing the independent structure of Nigeria thereby weakening our institutions to enable them to continually engage in impunity. Buhari and his likes will do anything, including mortgaging Nigeria’s future as they did with Bakassi, to hold on to their corrupt skewed Nigeria structure. Transformation is the way to go and not change to impunity.

    In recent week things appear to have turned sour for APC & Buhari. Their four-year support for BOKO HARAM to destabilize Jonathan’s administration apparently did not work and his PLANNED RIGGING OF the ELECTION by disenfranchising 30 million voters without PVC failed woefully.

    At the backdrop of all these, the desperate Buhari has gone to London to seek help of born-to-rule Islamists’ BRITISH SLAVE MASTERS. Allegedly, he did not even tell Professor Osibanjo and others to debate whether he should travel to London. To that I say sorry to Osibanjo and others because when your SLAVE MASTER calls you, you rarely have a chance to consult even with your immediate family.

    Observers expect that on the way back from London, going by Buhari’s itinerary and born-to-rule Islamists antecedents, Buhari will proceed to Saudi Arabia to seek the help of born-to-rule Islamists’ ARABIA SLAVE MASTERS.

    Born-to-rule SLAVE MASTERS have used international press to destabilize Nigeria for Buhari in the last one year. They have used the LYING Australian mole, Dr. Davis, but it did not get traction. They used Amnesty international, Reuters, AP to write lies and spread human rights abuse falsehood against our security services while providing coverage for Boko Haram to kill innocent Nigerians and it did not work.

    Unfortunately for APC/Buhari, more than EIGHTY-FIVE PERCENT of Nigerians are not born-to-rule Islamists.

    Given thal Buhari lost to Jonathan in 2011 by more than 10 million votes, Nigerian PATRIOTS will give Jonathan 15 million more votes than Buhari as a message to BORN-TO-RULE ISLAMISTS, BOKO HARAM, BRITISH, SOUTH ARABIA, & all others from abroad.

    • August January

    Buhari is meeting with the wrong person, publishing photos of meeting Tony Blair is of no use, anyone in Nigeria can meet blair, its no news nor does it add any advantage to his chances in Nigeria. Come home and meet with stake holders who holds pvc to cast votes.

    • Abdul

      How is that your problem? Just leave Buhari alone, he is doing his thing and we his supporters are loving it.

    • Peter Perceival

      You are the mischievous people that said Buhari went to London for medical reasons. Now you have seen that he actually went to meet people that matter. Now you are wondering why he is meeting Tony Blair? Keep fooling yourself – carry on! The worst type of deception is self deception.

      • You can meet them too. they are not like Nigerian Leaders. This is not a credit to Buhari. You can drink beer with Mayor easily in UK and take picture with them. They enter train with you.

        • Peter Perceival

          It is not about giving credit to Buhari. It is about getting people to think straight. Why should anyone think that a trip by Buhari to the UK is on medical grounds? Let’s even say it was on medical grounds. Are you telling us that our current leaders – Jonathan, David Mark, state governors, etc. do not all go on at least an annual medical trip to an overseas country – a European country or USA? And does that mean they are about to die?


            Fair enough,there is no law banning Buhari from a medical trip abroad however,as a presidential aspirant,such information need not be hidden away from voters and Nigerians in general. The state of his health is a national issue as long as his name is on the ballot.

            We all remember the constitutional quagmire of Yar’adua’s demise and most Nigerians believe that he may have lived longer if he concentrated on his health. Having made my point,we all wish the old dictator speedy recovery if indeed he is ill !!

          • Peter Perceival

            So, how many times have you told Nigerians of the overseas medical trips undertaken by our elected officials? When did GEJ, Sambo, state governors, and other elected officials announce to their constituencies that they were going on medical trips abroad? Think straight and stop thinking evil about other people just because they belong to a different political camp.


            We are talking about democratic norms and standards,these sentiments are uncalled for !!

          • Peter Perceival

            What sentiments? And what “democratic norms and standards” require a presidential candidate to tell the country he is going on a medical trip, but does not require the sitting President, his Vice and state governors not to do same?

            Look my friend, I have been reading your posts here and see that you are one of those paid minions planted here, not to use your brain but to just be a nuisance in the hope of bringing down Buhari. It is quite sad that you accepted such a dirty job just for money. You are definitely intelligent, but then once one takes you down the road of a logical discussions, you lock up your brain in a suitcase, become a nuisance, and dismiss logic as “sentiment”. Do you listen to yourself?

            I knew exactly where you would take this particular discussion. I deliberately chose to engage you to again show how confused and illogical you are. You demand from a presidential candidate what you do not demand from the incumbent elected officers. When your irrationality is pointed out, you say it is “sentiment”? “Goodluck” to you! (No pun intended).

          • GbemigaO

            i slightly disagree with you on why we do not hold both candidates to the same standard. If Buhari claims ‘ change’ , then we do not need to follow the norms ! As a Presidential candidate, he is public property in a sane clime. Ditto for Jonathan. That Jonathan is not doing the same does not mean that we should not hold Buhari to the same standard. By the way, I am a supporter of Buhari. We just need to ensure that we hold our candidates to the high moral standard that is required .

          • Peter Perceival

            We can agree to disagree here, and that is ok. I believe we should hold all candidates to the same standards, otherwise we become partisan. The change Buhari canvases is not about informing Nigerians about their medical trips. It is about addressing the real issues facing the country.

            Overall, I think we are chasing shadows here. Is this the real issue facing Nigeria? Men in their forties drop dead suddenly. That a man is in his mid-seventies does not mean he is about to die. I am in my sixties and I have lost friends much younger than me who appeared always healthy but who suddenly dropped dead. So, let’s stop playing God by suggesting that a 73-year-old can only travel abroad on medical grounds.

      • GbemigaO

        I still do not understand this kind of argument ! He could as well finish his medical check up and then go for the meeting so your defence is not really tenable. And I do not really see anything wrong in Buhari going for medical check up. I do medical check up yearly and it does not mean I am sick

        • Peter Perceival

          Please read this whole thread to get my point. I agree with you that Buhari could well have had a medical checkup in London, but it was not necessarily his main reason for going to London. It is mischievous to assume that if indeed he had a medical checkup, then that was his main reason for travel. Follow the spirit of the discussion.

    • Dont mind them, they think UK leaders are like them that ordinary man can not exchange greetings with., Yeye man

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Why did blair grant the animal called Buhari, audience? I’m sure APC paid for the photo op as they did when Bola Tinubu falsely claimed he was invited to the Democratic Party’s Convention sometime back, when in actual fact he bought the invitation for $50k. APC is a party of scammers.

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      I used to respect your views, but to now refer to a fellow human being as “animal” is completely off the mark for a credible blogger. Maintain your sanity in the midst of this madness. We are supposed to educate those who are less endowed with the information at our disposal and also avoid dragging good discourse down the gutter. This country is presently delicately perched at the tip of a cliff. We also have a responsibility to ensure Nigeria does not tip over. If we, by our words, encourage its destruction, I want to predict that we would be somewhere many years after, rueing our losses and wishing we had done things differently. Respect…

  • dembo

    Of course Tony Blair must have been very diplomatic, telling Buhari what he wanted to hear. But this is what Blair must have been thinking about Buhari, which was written by another former British Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill:

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die: Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. [5] Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.[6]:248–250″

    For goodness sake what has Buhari got to tell the civilized British people? that is no longer Islamic extremist – he is now born again christian/moslem ……….. that he has since been delivered of the spirit of tyranny …………. that he is no longer a kidnapper or crater of his enemies ……….. that he is now a democrat who believes in majority opinion ………. that since NSO and Alhaji Rafindadi are no longer functional he can no longer detain people indiscriminately ……….. that since Tunde Idiagbon has died he has lost the strength to do evil ……….. that he will not ban importation from Britain………. that he will use his rich connection to rid the world the menace of the ISIS and the Boko Haram ………. that he is too old now to detain journalists ……………………..???

    Buhari Is An Irresponsible Liar!!!

    It is regrettable that Muhammadu Buhari (73), the Presidential candidate of Nigerian first Islamic Party, the APC will descend this low in his act of dishing mountain of lies to Nigerians.

    On Thursday, the former Military dictator was flown to London for medical attention. He was admitted at a Private Hospital at Cavendish Street, Cavendish Square, W2 London West End, London.

    Buhari and APC denied that he was sick and hospitalized and according Hope For Nigeria, APC released pictures of Buhari taken on March 05, 2013 and labelled it, “Buhari strolling on the street of London on Friday, February 20, 2015”. What a shame!!!

    Buhari and his party were not satisfied when we bursted the first picture, they went ahead and shameless through the indicted former governor of Kwara state, Senator Saraki, who tweeted a group picture of himself, Buhari, Gov Amosun (who was campaigning in Nigeria), and Tony Blair (who was in Gaza, Middle East.

    Like the deciets of Buhari’s school certificate, below, according to Hope For Nigeria was a phone Interview Buhari had with Thisday Newspaper to cement these lies.

    Question: THISDAY: They said you were hospitalised in a London hospital?

    Answer: Buhari: “I am in London with Senator Bukola Saraki, Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State for a short working visit.

    “I just finished talks with the former Prime Minister of the UK in his country home.

    “I would be having another meeting with the Awujale of Ijebuland soon. Apart from this, I am also visiting some friends. As you can hear from my voice, I am hale and hearty with some of my friends around me”.

    As you can see, from the picture attached by Hope For Nigeria, Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is on Peace Mission across the world in the last 4 days.

    Blair was in Belgrade, Serbia on a visit to their PM, Aleksandar Vucic. He later visited Rwanda till Saturday. The former British PM left Rwanda to Israel en route to Gaza, Palestine.

    One wonders why Buhari who claims to be the oracle of integrity, will lie to the world that he visited Tony Blair’s country Home and APC announced that they visited Tony Blair’s office. sadly,Tony Blair’s office was closed on Saturday. We are demanding more explanation from the self claimed anti-corruption crusader, Buhari.

    Buhari has not been able to attend two official engagements and the major events in his claimed working tour of United Kingdom’s itinerary.

    Lies must be seen and treated as lies. Buhari is very dishonest and will not be trust. It is a shame that Buhari do not have the courage to apologise to Nigerians for the chains of lies his dishes out day-in-and-out.
