      C.A.N ORITSEJIAFOR’S AND BIAFRA IHEJIRIKA’S BOKO HARAM WERE FORCED OUT FROM MAIDUGURI YESTERDAY AND ONLY FOR THEM TO GO TO BIU AND CONTINUE THE EXECUTION OF THE KILLING AGENDA OF GOODLOCK JONOTHING. AFTER 29 MAY ALL WILL BE HISTORY. #28MARCH4GMB

        There is no truth in you. For goodness sake, did you see the crowd at Maiduguri yesterday, and there was no bomb blast?. I believe strongly that shetima has questions to answer as regard boko haram in the north east. I now believe that chibok girls were stage managed by borno as claimed by waec.

          How can there be a bomb blast when their Commander in Chief was in town It is impossible. It only resumed when GMB and his entourage departed. Yorubas wise up as you are being led to the slaughter slab by Awusas. This is ISIS in the making who intend to take over the whole country

          ASK C.A.N ORITSEJIAFOR OR BIAFRA IHEJIRIKA.

      You make me laugh. Nonetheless, I cannot vote for a president who believes being corrupt and being supportive of corrupt officials are the ways to stay in power. In fact, the mere fact that Buhari is very popular now is an indictment on the rulership bent of GEJ. For people to be preferring a lapsed dictator to a sitting president says so much about the poverty of reasoning that has characterised the GEJ regime, especially taking into account the prominently negative role his wife is playing, and, of course, GEJ’s mediocrity in handing over economic governance absolutely to Okonjo.This last instance explains apparently his nitwitism about governance, a fact that makes people to impeach his doctoral degree. Even as a person in the humanities, I know so much about economic ideologies these days as to be able to discern when it is right to increase petrol price. If not for Nigerians, tru the House, that forced into existence the subsidy probe,all the PDP thieves involved would not have been known. In Jesus’ name, after May 29, 2015, Goodluck, Ebele [Azikiwe] Jonathan will not be Nigeria’s President. Then take this: with revelations of the PDP mountains of corruption that will be unraveled by GMB after the exit of GEJ, PDP as a party will die because none of its members will be morally strong to say he/she is a PDP member. Many of them will languish in jail while many like boy George, as he rightly said in today’s Punch, will flee the nation.

    So long as BokoBuhari was in Bornu, no explosion will rock the State.
