    What is really wrong with this Muhammed Buhari? How can you be commiserating with people in other countries several thousands of kilometers away whereas you refused to commiserate or send any condolence message to the families of the 28 Nigerian females who drowned in the Mediterranean attempting to cross over to Italy while fleeing the comatose and harsh economic environment created by Buhari

    and his clueless band of confused people.
