    I said that Buhari will lose Plateau state, now they want to bomb the people of jos into fear . Nigeria i hail thee

    • Blessing Ekpere Ogbu

      So, employing your own logic, it follows that GEJ knows he will lose in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Kano, etc so he decides to bomb those people into submission?

    All we can do is wait till May 29 2015 for the new APC FG.

  • ikenna

    APC at work. Boko haram or other terrorists has nothing to do with any leadership issue later the are fighting for they twisted own ideology of Islam. Please ask yourself why a Doctor in UK or USA will leave his good paying job and go to Syria and flight for Islam. Do you consider that poor leadership? Please wake up from your sleep, these guys are fighting for Islam and not even Buhari can stop them. They are fighting for they Islam.

      Ok assume we all agree with you. Then what is the solution ? Stories, blame or what ? Jonathan is weak we need who will solve he problem not pointing fingers at people. Surely no leader can rule successfully without enemies, what matters is how you deal with them not coward stories. He rule with fear and weakness using sympathy to get support and many problems continue. You are supporting him not for performing but for sympathizing with him that “they hate him because he is this and that”. Is he best the Christians can give ? Is he best the Ijaws can give ? Kick him out of he can not stop this carnage, we are not after failure and weakness but a leader can change our lives.
      Ikenna, For avoidance of doubt, Muslims dies more than Christians just few days in Kano over 500 hundreds dies.
      Open your mind to understand Nigerian politics ! It’s a problem for all, and solution is at the hand Jonathan but is busy creating hate among people and gaining from others.

  • amazing2012

    Jonathan laziness at work ! We all believed the enemies are at work but is Jonathan doing to protect the citizens ? He rules with Weakness and sympathy not courage and decisiveness. Who ever that is doing this is not our concern but who fail to stop them. Surely no one can rule without enemies what matters is how you handle them. We have passed the stage of blame what we need is action or to vote Jonathan out for someone who will stop the carnage !

    We should not inadvertently create the impression that violence pays in Nigeria.If we suspect that the present Gov is faring well in its development efforts but its being sabotaged by security concerns we must rise to condemn such and not to compensate such persons with what they are fighting for
