Buhari wins APC presidential ticket

Muhammadu Buhari

A former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, has emerged the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He defeated four other aspirants to win the ticket by polling 3,430 votes at the party’s national convention held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

A former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, scored 954 votes while Governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso of Kano State got 974 votes.

Governor Rochas Okorocha scored 624 votes while the Publisher of Leadership Newspapers, Sam Nda-Isaiah, got 10 votes.

Sixteen votes were considered invalid and were therefore voided.

A total of 7,214 delegates were accredited to vote at the convention attended by the leaders of the opposition party.

Mr. Buhari, 72, was Nigeria’s military leader between December 31, 1983 and August 27, 1985.

With his victory, Mr. Buhari, a retired military general, will now face President Goodluck Jonathan, whose adoption was ratified by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at its special convention in the early hours of Thursday, in the February 14 presidential election.

It would also be the fourth time the former military leader will be running for president. He lost in all three previous ones.

In 2003, Mr. Buhari contested on the platform of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, against former President Olusegun Obasanjo of the PDP.

He polled 12, 710,022 votes representing 32.17 per cent to Mr. Obasanjo’s 24,456,140 or 61.94 per cent.

In 2007, he ran again on the platform of the same party against the then outgoing governor of his home state, Katsina, Umaru Yar’Adua. He secured mere 6,605,299 votes or 18.72 per cent to Mr. Yar’Adua’s 26,638,063 or 69.82 per cent.

A few months after he and some of his loyalists dumped the ANPP to float a new party, the Congress for Progressive Congress, CPC, in 2011, Mr. Buhari threw his hat into the presidential ring again. He contested against Mr. Jonathan but polled 12, 214,853 to the president’s 22,495,187 votes.

The February 14 presidential election will therefore be a replay of the 2011 electoral battle as both Messrs Buhari and Jonathan will also feature again in the contest.

  • Uturu Mgbagbu

    Buhari for President of Islamic Republic of Yemen?

    • greenlight774

      Be ready to run because Nigeria must be better.

      • Tobibs

        Amen

        • Bidemi Lukman

          Ameen. May GEJ go back to Otueke 2015 to continue his mere stealing in his village

          • Tunsj

            He will be a Pastor in his village in 2015. He is already packing his bags and SHOES.

          • Bidemi Lukman

            Thank God he has stolen enough to buy shoes. His excuse for contesting then was that he had no shoes. If we knew then, we would have bought him enough shoes including boots for farming rather than alowing him to steal more than he needed for shoes.

          • Tunsj

            Spot on!

    • Preco01

      Wallow in your ignorance while Nigeria is preparing to move forward

    • abbakar

      Point of correctio wé are in Nigeria not yemen yeye

    • tundemash

      It is a sad day for you and your household … isn’t it ? No more “awoof” stove and bag of rice !!!

    • Bidemi Lukman

      To answere your question, No, Buhari is President of Nigeria come 2015 by God’s grace. We are tired of a man who sees looting as the Nation’s fund as mere stealing and not corruption.

    • Tunsj

      Nonsense. You meant to say GEJ President of Corruption and Buhari for President of Nigeria.

    • Tonnero

      When he becomes President, you can move to Corruption Supporting Republic of Biafra.

  • Uwadiegwu

    The more you look, the less you see. This report says: “A total of 7,214 delegates voted at the convention attended by the leaders of the opposition party.” It also noted: but the three of them (other candidates) have 4,384 votes to share and are most unlikely to overtake Mr. Buhari.” How did you know Buhari, who scored 3430, won if you had 4,384 votes outstanding. It is beginning to sound like December 31 1983 to me.

    • Olusegun Olawonyi

      Why is it that your comment makes no reference to the other parties that did not allow for presidential primaries in the first place. When we see signs of development and progress, it behoves us to say so. APC has beaten the PDP to it as far as the issue of internal democracy is concerned.

    • Rico

      Don’t be a dull, he already had 50% of the vote amidst four contestants, how will another person surpass him? At this stage, you don’t need to go further into counting, it’s done like final football penalty.

    • Tonnero

      Keep looking.

  • Elijah Moses

    Editor Premium Times,

    THE BUHARI-TINUBU TICKET NOW CERTAIN

    The APC Buhari-Tinubu ticket is now definitive. Nigerians have their work cut out.
    Nigerians still need ammunitions against rampaging Boko Haram Islamic Jihadists.
    Now they’ll need more than those with this explicitly Islamist party bracing for power.

  • Olusegun Olawonyi

    My congratulations to the APC for conducting a transparent and open presidential election primary. This is what democracy is all about. And my congratulation to General Mohammed Buhari for winning this election. I am beginning to fancy a Buhari presidential ticket. But lets wait and see who his vice presidential candidate would be.

    • Tonnero

      We are not waiting. Even if his VP is a dog, we will not vote to return the thieving duo< Jonathan and Sambo, and their coterie of thieves to the Villa. He can rig to get in but HE WILL NOT GET OUR VOTES.

      • Olusegun Olawonyi

        Seriously???
        No, Tonnero you really do not mean what you said. You will vote for Buhari even if his VP or deputy “is a dog”? I don’t believe anyone can talk like that, except a paid agent. This is a classical case of “flight of reason”. Please hope that he comes up with a good VP and wish him success. Thank you.

  • Uwadiegwu

    Buhari, the coupist, would look great sitting side by side with Mugabe of Zimbabwe as they belong to the same generation.

    • Onike24

      Just like Jonathan it seems you can’t subtract 92 from 70!

      • Uwadiegwu

        Mr Know it all, what is a generation? Meanwhile your man the coupist will be 72 on December 17.

        • Bidemi Lukman

          The age makes Buhari more suitable just like Mandella

          • Egwuatu

            Having Buhari, a murderer, and Mandela in one sentence is a heresy.

          • Tonnero

            To you Igbo, every Yoruba or Hausa man is useless. You may need to ask yourselves why you think that.

          • sharp shape

            Mandela was a lawyer and humans

          • Bidemi Lukman

            Just as Buhari was a Military officer and human

        • Onike24

          Mr know nothing, perhaps you can tell me?

        • sharp shape

          That’s just official age the man is somewhere around 78 nigerian factor nko !

    • glo

      you must be a bastard child of ignorant Jonathan! Your game is up for all you devourers!

    • sharp shape

      Thanks

  • Spoken word

    Congrats to APC.change is coming.

    • sharp shape

      Nonsense change to what ?

      • Spoken word

        Change for the better. You have been blinded by failure.shine your eyes.Nigeria can surely do better than our current dismal state.

  • warry

    In 1983 Buhari, IBB, Abacha, Abdul salami, Overthrew Shagari saying his Govt was corrupt using the press and opposition politicians to prepare the ground for that coup.With benefit of hindsight who is more corrupt?

    • Realnigerian

      IBB, Abacha, Abdulsalami

      • Bidemi Lukman

        Including Jonathief Badluck

      Hahah same tin is happening, and funny enough they are the same animals causing this bokoharm

  • Guguru

    APC primaries was simply excellent and democratic.

    • Udom

      “Primaries was” Hmm. English harrro (hard o).

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        But you got the gist of his message, Udom?

        Didn’t you?

        “Communications” is simply defined as a two-way exchange of information.

        @Guguru imparted, we received!!

        What else, aside ‘refinement’?

    • PROF

      Buhari is perpetually unelectable : Elrufai.

      • Tonnero

        Now you quote El Rufai. Elsewhere you say he does not know what he is talking about. Make up your mind.

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Tonnero, he has no “mind”, unless it is dictated by Reno.

  • Roland (Journalist)

    Muhammadu Buhari won the APC presidential primary by 57% of total votes.
    That’s resounding victory for any presidential candidate by any standard.
    Buhari will be going into the 2015 national election with a cohesive party.

  • the truth

    Congrats to Buhari. You are welcome to the race. I wish you Goodluck and Patience as you seek the precidency. And may the Umbrella of love, togetherness,continuous transformation, nation building and corruption free governance engulf you in 2015.

  • adnoy

    Buhari is a better candidate than Jonathan. Jonathan has been there for some time now and his government has no direction. In Physics his government can be likened to a vector quantity.

    • Tunsj

      I couldn’t have said it better myself. This guy has been in office for six years and nothing changed. Now, he wants another four years to destroy the whole country and steal more.

      • John Tanimu

        Couldn’t have said what better? His gaffe of ‘vector quantity’???
        Nawa o!

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        …and this time, he can’t claim he has no shoes!

    • Tonnero

      Actually scalar quantity is the one without direction. Vector quantities have direction.

  • adnoy

    …..his government cannot be likened to be a vector quantity.

  • MushinSpeaks

    The change we want has come; its time we send the GEJ govt packing.

  • boliatepa

    Now what?

  • alhajizakka

    The incorruptible General welcome on board,,Congratulations

    • boliatepa

      Where were you when the Emir of Guzo was smuggling dollars into Nigeria in 1984. Were you alive in 1996 when Buhari was the head of the Petroleum Trust Fund set up by Abacha? The PTF became an organ of corruption. Nigerians need to look beyond these recycled garbage in Buhari or Jonathan. You are in mental and intellectual slavery.

      • alhajizakka

        haba! must you vilify me to pass you message Across??…This Man was PTF boss and never own a filling station when he was in office and after office….Good name is better than wealth that was what made him to scale through in the just concluded primary held at Lagos..Now can you enumerate any of the present official that has never engage in one or the other scandal????

        Buhari is the Right man that the cap fit..

        • The Pink Panther

          My brother, this is a very very ignorant comment. What you attempt to use to Buhari’s credit is actually his albatross.
          If you don’t know, Pls ask those who do! While Buhari was BOSS at PTF, APC(the consortium which handled the PTF projects) headed by salhijo Ahmed was a CESSPOOL OF CORRUPTION! It was so bad that when Obasanjo decided to probe the PTF activities, the heat was too much for salhijo who died suddenly!
          What is the benefit of a leader who is ‘not corrupt’ if be allows those he directly oversees to carry out corrupt acts of monumental proportions??
          If he could not curb the excesses of the APC-consultants, how will he control it in a country as large as Naija??
          Remembering he(Buhari) also said Abacha was a saint who never stole a kobo???
          Something is wrong somewhere..

Incorruptible? …and he was a an employee of draconian and serial murderer called Abacha…in fact, he was a caucus member of the Abacha govt and was there when Wiwa & others were hanged. He was part of that decision to kill 9 civil rights activists. If he wasn’t, he could have elected to resign. But he sat there enjoying my oil money @ PTF….and you come here to write about ‘incorruptible’…You think people dont have brains to remember? Nonsense.

    Blood of Jesus, thank you for making this day possible. We have defeated this religious bigot before and we will “trash” him for good. We will repay Buhari for all the carnage that members of his association Miyetti Allah Cattle have done. We will pay him back for every rape and every bullet they fired at innocent farmers in the MB and in the South. By the grace of God we have not forgotten how this bigot cancelled the Lagos metro Project because of his hatred for the South. We have not forgotten the extra judicial killings of the Southerners. How can we forget how he put Shagari under house arrest and sent Alex Ekweme to Kirikiri.

      Obama was adopted as the Democratic party sole candidate in 2012. So your attempt to fault PDP in adopting a sitting president as its sole candidate hold no substance please

      • Chris1408

        When you compare Nigeria to USA, compare it in every category of human endeavor not just on one flawed aspect as you see fit. Can you compare Obama to GEJ? GEJ is a woeful failure

        • Frank

          Oga, you and the other guy were discussing the issue of ‘election’ and ‘adoption’ which you raised. From ‘fortBs’ comment, he was able to show your comment was pointless. Stop chasing shadows.

          • Chris1408

            You just woke up. Go back to sleep. Obama didn’t payoff or blackmail anyone to to get the democratic ticket. There’s difference between democracy and LOOTUCRAZY

          • Sword of Damocles

            If that is the conclusion you came to……clap for yourself???. But in the whole sphere of things. its means ZILCH!! Unlike you & “killabee”, i found @Tonnero’s take to be quite compelling, we shall all await the canvas and see kilo shele…..

        • GrantUK

          As perfect as Obama is both in personality and policies, he has lost both chambers of the National Assembly.

          • Chris1408

            That’s the beauty of democracy. It’s a process of election, not selection. The people voted out those not worthy of running the affairs of the country. There’s a difference between election and selection

        • FortB

          Your opinion of course. But that does not mean the rest of Nigerians hold the same opinion as you. The elections will determine, just like it did in the US when majority voted for Obama’s second term.

          • Chris1408

            Hopefully it’ll be free and fare just like the election in USA, devoid of violence and unnecessary killings. May the best candidate that can move Nigeria forward win

      • Kabiru Shehu

        End of discussion!
        Nigerians are too sentimental. Makes them make very wierd comments lacking substance.

      • Tonnero

        Did Obama also force Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and other senior democrats out of the party as Dumbo did to Atiku, Nyako and the other nPDP governors so that no one will contest against him? Did Obama use the CIA and FBI against democrat governors as Dumbo did to Lamido of Jigawa and Babagida Aliyu of Niger so that they will not contest against him? How many children of Democrat governors were being pursued by the FBI so that their fathers would not contest against Obama like Dumbo arrested Lamidos son? It is amazing how dishonest we can be. It was clear to even the blind that GEJ orchestrated his sole candidacy first by hijacking the party machinery through Anenih, Akpabio and Tukur. His attempt to takeover the governors’ forum for the same purpose was foiled by Amaechi. Then he ostracized anyone who could challenge him. Atiku, a former VP suddenly was not getting invitations to the party BoT and was cut off from all party activities. He ended up forcing 7 PDP governors out of the party. Then he chased the two that were left by harassing them and their families with the EFCC. Finally, he bribed everyone in sight and assured thieving governors and senators that they would return unopposed if they endorsed him. Does this sound like what Obama would ever do to you? You can keep deceiving yourself. Everyday for the thief, one day for the owner.

        • FortB

          Wow, you speak as if you are the president personal assistant which gave you insight into all these statements you made. But what I see are merey speculations except you can substantiate any of these allegations with incontrovertible evidence that the President actuall did all you enumerated in your post? I guess you cannot. Mere speculations hold no substance unfortunately.

    • Ekwekwe

      WRONG. Buhari was adopted by one very corrupt man – one ugly bat, the graduate of “University of Chicago,” Idumota campus.

  • Chorister

    All i want to say is General Muhammadu Buhari must NOT pick a Muslim running mate.
    A Muslim/Muslim ticket is un-acceptable in Nigeria today and it has no single benefit.

      GENERAL BUHARI AND HIS WORLD VIEW

      “(General) Yakubu Gowon filled his government with Christians. Buhari/Idiagbon were Muslims,
      Nigerians voted Muslim – Muslim with Abiola, maybe time has changed now. I have not absolutely
      closed my mind to picking a Christian or Muslim as running mate if I get the ticket. Because I firmly
      believe that Nigerians, having gone through what they have gone through, realise it is not a matter
      of religion but a matter of Nigeria.”

      ………..General Muhammadu Buhari
      [December 7th, 2014]

      “Sharia should be introduced in full across Nigeria. I will continue to show openly
      and inside me the total commitment to the Sharia movement that is sweeping
      all over Nigeria. God willing, we will NOT stop the agitation for the total implementation
      of the Sharia in the country.”

      “It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria,
      to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims in
      Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote
      the full implementation of Sharia law.”

    BREAKING NEWS!!!…ALL BABOONS & DOGS GO INTO HIDING IN LAGOS
    ===========================================================

    The Associated press has just reported that Lagos streets have been free of Dogs since early hours of today. So many Dog owners have gone to the police stations to report and ducument the sudden dissapearance oftheir Dogs. One Zoo in Badagry and another at Aja and Ikorodu have reported that all Baboons in their custody have refused to to leave their cages. This it was gathered might not be unconnected to the APC primaries and the possibility of Bokohari losing.

      @ JonathanPHOBIC,

      Yours above is the best post i have read here this year!!!!

  • FortB

    At the national level for a country like Nigeria, a key regional leader in Africa, whoever aspires to the office of president must have a solid foreign policy trust and plan based on solid/clear understanding of the complex dynamics in the international system.

    Who among those contestants fit this bill? None I can see. It is time young, dynamic, exposed leaders start showing greater interest in our national political issues and contest for leadership positions. In today’s world, the world is a more complex, ambiguous and volatile place that require astute leadership for a nation that wants to be counted among key players in the international system. The Elumelus, Agangas, etc must start contending for the highest office in the land, not some analogue leader with no idea of what it takes to lead a nation like Nigeria in the contemporary world.

  • djay

    “It is a legal responsibility which God has given us, within the context of one Nigeria, to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia wholeheartedly. What remains for Muslims in Nigeria is for them to re-double their efforts and educate Muslims on the need to promote the full implementation of Sharia law.”…..(August 27, 2001)

    Sharia as it is, is the killing of non-Muslims as being witnessed with Boko-Haram, who are Buhari’s brothers in Islam. It is a legal responsibility which Allah has given Boko-Haram, within the context of one Nigeria,to continue to uphold the practice of Sharia killing of non-Muslims wholeheartedly.

    Non-Muslims should start planning their funerals should Buhari emerge the winner of 2015 election.

      Too little too late. Your propaganda did not stop the APC delegates north, south, east and west from choosing Buhari as their party’s Presidential candidate and it won’t stop so many Nigerians from effecting a change after 16 years of looting . Go check al submissions online since yesterday and you will realise no propaganda can stop this CHANGE.
      Keep up with your copy and paste job; it won’t last more then Feb. 15th !

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        I noticed how you vanish from cyber space after each election defeat,you did it the last time after the last GEJ victory……this time, be brave enough to eat your humble pie in public !

        • tundemash

          Cl0wn ….. lies are your trade marks … since Buhari won the APC Presidential primaries, it’s been woe has betide you and your household. I leanrt Dumbo is on binge drinking now.
          My advice: start coaching Dumbo how to speak in public and debate, we would not accept the m0ron debating Dbanj instead of his co-contestants as he did in 2011.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            The problem with Buhari’s Fulani accent is that only Fulani people who went to school can understand it,for instance “government” is pronounced “GWAFMENT” and “Colour” is pronounced “qualar”…it’s gonna be an uphill task for him to communicate what more of debate !!

          • tundemash

            thanks we like am like that !!!! Better than a thieving d@ft PhD Otuoke m0r0n.

            Go ask the delegates from all over Nigeria who voted for him at the primaries how he communicated to them.
            It’s obvious these are desperate times for you so any excuse will do .

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            You mean Jihadist delegates ? they do not represent Nigerians,they are extremist nutters who operate on the lunatic fringes of the Nigerian political terrain.

        1. PDP politicians. Will become more religious

        2. Rogues and thieves will reduce their shameless show of wealth and opulence…

        3. Judges will become bolder in verdict…

        4. Pastors will make phony prophecies…

        5. Executive orders will be defied and even challenged…

        6. PDP will try everything to appease the Nigerian populace…

        7. PDP will begin to preach peace, unity and Love…

        8. Churches and Mosques will have a field day as bigwigs will become more religious…

        9. INEC and Co. Will defy and disappoint PDP members…

        10. 2015 elections will be violence free… and PDP members will flee Nigeria….

      • Mr Randie

        In Nigeria every one loots, the greatest looter wins. When i was a corper in Yobe State 2010/2011, we were forced to register underage children in order to inflate the votes for candidate Buhari to win, they campaigned that all shld vote for Buhari that they cant stand an infidel ruling the country. What they didn’t know is the North alone cannot guarantee a win. So quit the ranting that PDP rigged. They all rigged, the boss rigger won!

    • segun

      I have some questions for you: What was your grade in the course HATRED 101 which you took in college? And since Asari Dokubo of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force said he would spill the blood of all Nigerians if President Jonathan is defeated in the election, shouldnt all Nigerians begin to get set for this?

      • Maria

        No need to ask him any question. I have noticed since Buari has been reported as favourite, people like him have lost their peace.This is why they run from pillar to post, posting moronic comments…They don’t know that Nigeria has moved beyond their primordial mentality.

    Loyal pdp stalwarts should be proactive enough to hire trailers with shoe racks to help evacuate all the many new shoes for early transportation to Yenagoa.

          Kindly show us just one proof. No speculations or “go find out” syndrome allowed ooo!

        • Olu. Oluwadare

          Buhari:

          Myopic: Thinks its better to and paid all Nigeria’s debts even when IMF kept pressing that loans are the way to go. Boosted Naira to 2:1 USD from 3+:1USD. He resulted to trade by barter when Nigeria was banned from WTO.
          Even when other ministers had foresight to steal so much and use their good office to get oil blocks as ministers of petroleum, he worked so much and forgot to get himself one. The other person without foresight like him is Tam David West.
          When GEJ approved N33M as pension for past heads of state, he tought it is fraudulent to Nigeria and refused but opted for 3.2 instead

          A bigot: His driver, cook and steward for over 10 years are christians. He helped sponsor the education of the driver’s child.
          Gave his staff permanent off duty on Sundays. When his muslim staff asked for rest on fridays, he replied: “It in the bible that they rest on sabath/sundays. Show me where it is in the Quran that you should rest on fridays”

          Tribalistic: Gave his first daughter’s hand out in marriage to an Igbo man.

          A hater: Build the first Nigerian Refinery in Port-Harcourt as petroleum minister. He fixed more roads in Nigeria (through PTF) more than all fixed in the 16 years and yet no sign post showing “PTF road”. But today, all we see “Sure P” and “Ferma” signboards all over complementing our bad roads.

          A failed relic from the horrible past:
          He failed to get Umaru Dikko (who is now PDP’s Chaairman Disciplinary Committee) to account for what he stole while in power. He finally gave him contracts worth hundred of millions as PTF chairman and after successful completion, refused to pay him sayng part of our loot have been collected through the contract. How horrible.

          So negative…dont you agree?

          What a CV

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Gen Buhari’s horrible legacy cannot be painted in any bright colours no matter how hard you try to erase the grotesque nature of his impact on our everyday lives,you will continue to look and sound more ridiculous .

            1.As Petroleum minister,$2.8 billion vanished and has never been found,he denied having a foreign account but that was later found to be untrue.

            2.Gen Buhari was possibly the second most brutal military dictator in Nigeria’s history,he plotted a coup to remove a democratically elected government through the force of arms.This act is pure treason for which he should be made to answer for and lest we forget Brig Bako lost his life in that coup.

            3.The destruction of our national image on the international scene can be traced to the orchestrated botched international kidnap of Umaru Dikko from UK on his watch,an illegal act which relegated Nigeria to the status of a rogue state.That failure has to be answered for.

            4.The extremist Islamic credentials of the General is not in question,he publicly asked Muslims never to vote for a non-Muslim.His political followership are mostly extremists who unleashed bloody mayhem on Christians in a post election orgy of violence which cost scores of lives,he actually bailed them from detention. He banned the importation of barley to undermine beer breweries leading to the closure of many breweries and loss of jobs, in line with Sharia requirements. He also made sure his deputy was a Muslim .

            Buhari’s ethnic bias is indisputable,he imprisoned Alex Ekwueme and other southern politicians in maximum security prisons but left their northern counterparts in government guest houses.He looked the other way when 250 suit cases stuffed with millions of dollars and other foreign currencies was intercepted by security agencies at an international airport,the money was released to the Emir of Gwandu but Fela Kuti was imprisoned for a mere $215 dollars which was meant for airport taxes as he was heading for a concert abroad and Mallams were openly trading on their currencies while southerners were harassed for the same act.

            Buhari clamped down on free speech and civil society in a most brutal manner,in fact Tai Solarin was refused his athsma medication while in prison which led to his death eventually.Obnoxious anti-free press decrees where enacted.

            Buhari executed 3 Yoruba young men accused of drug trafficking via a retro-active decree,another murder which he has to answer for.

            Nigeria does not need the polarisation which this General is bound to introduce into the polity,he is a staunch member of the Fulani born-to-rule oligarchy notorious for their power drunk and winner take all machinations….HE WILL BE DEFEATED !!

    Are there 10 million more Nigerians earnestly yearning for Buhari,
    than those who voted for him in the 2011 election where Buhari lost
    with a staggering 10 million votes to the same Goodluck Jonathan?

    • SenatorD

      Yes! From 2011 to 2014 over 10-million Nigerians have become newly eligible to vote and they are now wiser including those who voted in 2011…

    • Cattlerancher

      Much more than 10 million….

  • Otile

    The result is a foregone conclusion. They know that Imam Buhari would sue the pants off of the other four APC chieftains if he lost. Everybody is also prepared for his heading to court in February when he loses big. What we are ot prepared for is how much blood will flow when they announce his staggering loss. This time people must be prepared to fight back. It will be blow for blow.

    • SenatorD

      Was ist da problem mein freund? Why are you crying more than the bereaved? Fine, they have lost and Buhari has gotten the ticket so? Allow us hear word with your analysis of possible Buhari’s action. After all in 2011 PDP eon the case against him. Do not worry when we get to the 2015 bridge will shall cross it…

      • Otile

        What I am saying is that you don’t wait for the truck to run you over then you copy the plate number. Each time Buhari lost big he has headed to court and violence followed. This time is not different. Be prepared to defend yourself from Islamists and violent people, especially now that Muslim women are bombing people here and there.

  • Chike

    Honestly, na Isaiah me I dey feel for.

    I hope the bloody Christian has realized that you don’t go close to an Islamic party and be bold enough to contest election with that Biblical name. Isaiah! You see, the North did not bomb too much when OBJ was there bcos OBJ was wise to drop his Christian name given to him at his Aladura Church.

    Only 10 votes for the Christian Isaiah. I hope he now agrees with Fani Kayode who ran away very early from the Jihadist camp.

    • SenatorD

      Religion yes does play a vital role in Nigerian politics but please how many Christian billionaires have given hope to poor Christians in Nigeria? Kindly, please focus on the person and character of Buhari and not his personal belief… I guess he has his fundamental tights too just like you and me…

Even if that person is jukum, so long as he has the right qualities. Then we pray for their victory and success. Let us move towards Nigeria now not tribes. Let us just unite and send away all these thieves hiding in PDP to defraud Nigeria.

    • Olu. Oluwadare

      Buhari’s first daughter is married to an Igbo man. He is not as tribalistic as we is painted to be. Please find out. He will not make such mistakes. Remember, he discovered and polished late Dora Akunyilli into what she later bacame.
      He was a real soldier and all real soldiers of their era are trained to be nationalists.

  • warry

    We must not allow ourselves to be bombed into submission.Now who is the man called Buhari?He was a Governor of N/E Nigeria.What was his vision and service delivery there?the same region that is the home of radical islam in Nigeria.He was a former petroleum minister.now what was his innovations there?They say there was and is corruption there.He was a former Head of State and that he fought corruption the main selling point of those who convinced him to return to politics because power must return to a section of the country now. How did he perform on this score?people where bundled into jail for as long 250years and after a year or two,must of them were released.On hindsight we know that most of them were not as corrupt as painted then by the press and opposition politicians which was the basis for his coup.The military regimes that follwed were worse in corruption and derailed the progress of Nigeria.
