    Excellent write up Dahiru. Buhari has become a plague to Nigeria.

    Excellent piece Sir. Glad there are many Northern Muslims who do not see things through tainted glasses of religiosity or ethnicity but rather stand by the TRUTH.People like you give us hope for a better Nigeria. May God bless and reward you abundantly Mr Dahiru

    The issue of merit in PMB’s appointments is also devoid of logic and common sense. A region which is classified as educationally disadvantaged, whose students are given admission into higher institutions by lowering national standards and not on merit, but quota system, so that they can catch up with their Southern counterparts, cannot also benefit most from key appointments based on merit. The president’s actions have substantially reversed the gains made in the last sixteen years at national integration and unity.

    Good piece….now let’s try to ‘walk the talk’…are you now a newly converted WAILER or still a SAI BARBARIAN? If the former, could you encourage more SAI BARBARIAN to convert to WAILERS?

    Not that I am begging for it but the way things are going Nigerians could begin to literally STONE APC people if nothing changes within one year, actually by December.
