  • Gbofia Lunar

    Is this in retaliation to Obasanjo’s rather successful birthday football tournament or the failed Buhari Health allegations by PDP…?

    • Awarawa

      @ Lunar, the presidency don’t just plan such an outing within a day. Preparation has been on for weeks. It is the APC who are trying to revive their floundering campaign that hurriedly put out a one million man march together for tomorrow.

      • Wähala

        Keep fooling your fellow urchins, why wasn’t it announced weeks ago if it’s not a copycat event? Didinrin!

    • NoMoreKindergartenPresident!

      Yes, OBJ is always waking GEJ up from his slumber.

      • Philip Musa

        Better late than never! See as APC is already counting their loses after months of big talk. Now, the Nigerian army is routing boko haram, PDP has regained solid momentum, and buhari ran to London to clear his head due to the handwriting on the wall!

        • Joe

          Are you saying it was deliberate that he waited all these while. If only you know that the blood of every Nigerian is as important as that of the president you would not have posted this comment. It is devilish to play politics with life.



    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Brilliant cartoon!

  • Philip Musa

    Oya, Buhari where are you? Make sure you join them in the rigorous exercise oohhh! We need to measure your endurance level; aso rock is very demanding as you know naa.

    • Maria

      But he doesnt have to since you have said he is not going to win, so why testing him?

    • Wähala

      Buhari was first to challenge Dumbo (or anybody) for a walk until the sun sets… why didn’t the Otuoke thief accept? Comparing a drunk with an ex-soldier is like comparing agidi with akpu… if you don’t know what ‘akpu’ is, ask any Igbo man. Stuupid Aborigine hiding under fake aboki name. Inferiority complex is your sickness… Drunkard!

      • Jack

        This Wahala na real Wahala, you wan try am? The guy posts na killer, i really like the guy sha!

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      Buhari is original. Certainly he cannot clueless drunken fisherman

  • Wähala

    Mumu President… never has his own ideas or visions. Copycat exercise because Baba Iyabo played football on his 78th Birthday celebration. Why hasn’t Dumbo been jogging every morning like President Obama does in the US? They only refer to the US when it suits them to steal or waste our common wealth. If this drunk is serious, he should walk with his obese drum wife, obese Doyin Okupe, obese Asari Dokubo, fat Pius Anyim, fat Alex Badeh and all those Tombo Generals who only run when the Boko Haram shoot into the air. Clowns!

    • Dumbo

      Uncle Wahala na you fit these clowns. You deserve a place on the media team of the next government led by #Buhari/ Osinbajo.

    • Jack


    • Mosaku 147

      I don talk before say na you go kill me with laff. Buhari don show,Jona don start im jogging back to Otuoke.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      “Sports personalities expected to participate in the physical training exercise and solidarity rally include Mary Onyali, Austin Eguavoen, Kanu Nwankwo, Joseph Yobo and Chika Chukwumerije, amongst others.”

      No sports personalities from other parts of Nigeria?

  • Maria

    His brain dead wife must also join him in the endurance walk… yeye people.

    • Wähala

      Hahaha… you wan commit manslaughter? Abi, in this case, Hippo slaughter!

  • Jones

    There is nothing original about this Port Harcourt doctor. He is busy copying everybody but never getting any right.

  • Sams

    Yes woo.. We need a physically fit president not mentally fit lol

  • Jack

    Goodluck go soon know the real meaning of abakaliki! Lol..Ogogoro master! Chei! Nigeria don die! How this pafipafi even become our President? Shockingly embarrassing

  • Mosaku 147

    Obama will be jogging on Pennsylvania Avenue. Expected at the solidarity jogging is magic Johnson,Larry bird,tiger woods,Donovan and other top American sports personalities. The event will start at 7am (GMT) and will be televised live on NBC,CNN and FOX news.

  • taiwo

    APC e rats and noise making,here they are abusing our amiable president for giving them freedom of speech,calling the best president we have ever had in Nigeria names just to try and hoodwink people.IF IT PAINS YOU GUYS THAT MUCH THAT OUR YOUNG AND ENERGETIC PRESIDENT IS GOING FOR AN ENDURANCE WALK AND EXERCISES THEN SIMPLY ASK YOUR OLD CARGO EVERY YEAR ASPIRANT WITH NO SUCCESS TO TRY THE SAME LETS COMPARE

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      Did GEJ learnt that from Obama? Did Obama do it because he wat to win election like our Otuoke clawn?

    • abc

      Hey you animal, we are born free, and nobody got any right to temper with our god given freedom of speeches.

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    The clueless is trying to lay his hand on anything. He has just remember after 6 years that physical exercise to good for Nigerians. Jonathan is a mistake that we would correct on March 28

  • taiwo

    Even the sight of boobuhari on track suit is enough to give children nightmare and yet crumb eating e rats from the stable of Liar Mohammed are here dishing out insults and hate speeches like it is going out of fashion.Daft set of people,They don’t even realise that people are being turned off by all these abuses from useless boys with fake aliases planted by the APC to write trash

    • logmein2nite

      Even more fake aliases paid by PDP dishing out insults on Buhari abound. The fact remains that the potential for presidential performance has nothing to do with who is younger or who can physically outrun another.

  • Divine West

  • Uzoma John

    GEJ wants to take a walk for the first time in years and it becomes news and campaign issue. Go check out OBAMA and CAMERON who jog week in week out. Nonsense. All we are saying is corruption must stop. You must go back to Otuoke. GMB, our President.
