    It is because of incidences such as this that patriotic citizens are calling on buhari to show patriotism and love for Nigeria by resigning his position as the president and C in C so that Nigerians can hold osibanjo accountable to his duties when such a failure of leadership occurs,buharis insistence on holding on to power when his health and mental conditions can not allow him to function anymore, is a big set back to governance in Nigeria.
    Buhari is been paid by Nigerians to guarantee security of lives and properties of Nigerian citizens, but buhari had failed to use the resources placed at his disposal to do his job ,Nigerians are been mowed down from the east,west,north and south ,and yet the man who campaigned with provision of effective security to Nigerians,and was voted based on his campaign promises ,which he used as his selling point, is no where to be found.
    It is the failure of buhari to provide security to this innocent Nigerians that is at the root cause of their untimely death, whether they were murdered by their traditional ruler,father, mother, Hausa,Fulani or Yoruba etc is immaterial.
    Buhari should be ashamed that since 2015 may 29,more Nigerians have been murdered in cold blood by murderers ,than at any other time in history.
    Buhari have shamelessly failed on economy, food security, power, infrastructure, maintenance of peace, unity and security of lives and properties. Therefore he should show that he is a man of integrity by resigning so that more competent Nigerians can show him how to lead.
    It should be an act of wickedness, lack of integrity, lack of patriotism, and shamelessness for buhari to insist on hanging on the seat of power when Nigerians are facing the worst of calamities, pain,hunger, sorrow, death ,as the result of buharis incompetence and lack of leadership credentials.
    May God give buhari grace to resign so that Nigerians shall live in peace, progress, unity ,love ,safety and prosperity again.

    Our President in diaspora, how’s life in the refugee camp? Make you die quickly Buhari so Nigeria can move forward.

    • Abu-Abdurrahman

      No one has control over death except almighty God the creator of all.He has appropriately and individually given life time to all the creatures and no one will die until he reaches that time whether sick or healthy,I am optimistic that you have witnessed so many deaths of healthy individuals while the sick were alive.There must be no haste in demanding somebody’s death as you may die before the one you are demanding for.
