    Where are the mouthy APC members? They claim to love Nigeria so much. Buhari can still do is own part to help the army if he claims he does not support Boko Haram. Since he is a devout Muslim why can’t he send his followers to fight back wearing their own explosives to deal with Boko Haram. He knows the enemy hideouts, he can send his APC boys and girls to carry out suicide bombing on them too. Instead he continues to unleash his minions to attack PDP and those of us who don’t belong to any party.

    Still wondering why the bombs keep coming? The jobless & irresponsible Terrorist vampire politicians need to explain. Pollution in Ogoni land continues unabated as it is everywhere in the Niger Delta as the irresponsible environmental terrorist oil companies continue to decimate and threaten the existence of the Niger Delta nation…How much long will the Niger Delta tolerate Nigeria…How much more will Nigerians have to tolerate incessant acts of destruction from the terrorists of the North & its so called leaders who are obviously not seen to publicly condemn these demons?

    In Belgium, France, Egypt, Kenya, Germany, Australia…and now Czech Republic, the entire population including the opposition teams up with the Govt of the day to condemn and fight terrorists, but only in continent Nigeria will you find the exact opposite. Only an irredeemable mumu will believe that Nigeria will survive this. I pray with all my heart that the useless British arrangement breaks up into as many countries as possible so that we all can have peace and a bomb free society bcos this stigma which the North has brought on the whole Nigeria is affecting Nigerians at international entry points as we move around. RESTRUCTURE Nigeria NOW! Let those who no longer believe in it go their separate ways.
