Why I refused to debate with Jonathan – Buhari

APC national party chairman John Odigie Oyegun, APC Presidential Candidate Mohammadu Buhari and Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar

The Presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu has said, if he wins the March 28 poll, he will ensure strict adherence to the constitution, saying he is now “a converted democrat”.

Mr. Buhari made the pledge while addressing a media parley in Abuja today.

“I want to assure you that Nigerian constitution will be adhered to,” he said.

He reminded the audience of the controversial Decree 4 promulgated in 1984 while he was military Head of State.

He said there will be no such controversy should he win the presidential election.
“I cannot change the past but I can change the present and future. Dictatorship goes with military which made possible decree four.

“I am a former military leader. Note the emphasis on former. But I am now a converted democrat.
“I give full assurances to Nigeria media will be free under an APC government,” he said.

Asked if he was prepared to apologise for jailing journalists as military ruler, the Director General of Mr. Buhari’s campaign and Governor of River State, Rotimi Amaechi, prevented the former general from responding, saying “the general has said he could not change the past”.

Mr. Buhari said he was not ready to participate in the presidential debate with President Goodluck Jonathan, standing for re-election as the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party.

He argued that there is no basis for debate since the record of the PDP and Mr. Jonathan in government is public knowledge.

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar attended the media event.

    TO QUALIFY TO DEBATE WITH PRESIDENT JONATHAN,
    YOU WILL NEED TO FIRSTLY DO THE FOLLOWING; VIZ:

    • Truth

      Welldone

      can we move on , why still in the past. even fayose and FFK have moved to other aries….

  • (Buhari goofed when his purported results or certificate bears KATSINA STATE for a certificate of 1961. For the records, by 1961, Nigeria had no states let alone Katsina State. The phenomenon called state came into Nigeria’s record on 27th May, 1967, when General Yakubu Jackson Gowon created 12 States. Even then, there was no Katsina State. Buhari became a head of state between 1983 and 1985. Then there was also no Katsina State in Nigeria; the former Katsina province was by then under Kaduna State. Katsina State was created in 1987 by Director General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, it was Katsina State and Akwa Ibom State that were created on 1st October (Independence Day), 1987. So how did Katsina State appear on his certificate of 1961? What a world! This is the true side or character of our ‘incorruptible man’.

    Buhari, the ‘incorruptible man’ ‘who will come to fight corruption’ stated in his last press conference that the late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua was his classmate in Secondary School. For the records again, Late General Shehu Musa Yar’Adua joined the army in 1959. The one million naira question is How then did he become the classmate of Buhari who purportedly graduated or finished his secondary school education in 1961? Is it loss of memory due to old age or clear blatant lie of General Buhari or only desperation for Aso Rock or did he fail and failed again and then graduated in 1961?Furthermore, the certificate of General Buhari for whatever its worth indicates and himself in his press conference alluded to the fact that he finished his class 6 in 1961. For the avoidance of doubt, class 6 was introduced into Nigerian academic calendar or curriculum via the 6-3-3-4 system of Dictator Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida’s Education policy in 1990.)

      You are a complete mumu,keep deceiving yourself!

      • djay

        lol,no he has suffer head syndrome.

    • The truth

      you are an educated illiterate. What you saw was the statement of result prepared in 2015 from the 1961 result master sheet from Cambridge and that explains why it was katsina that appeared otherwise it would have been a fraud. The statement was not a photocopy of old result but a new one prepared by the current principal. Are you saying the principal should have signed as if he was there in 1961. Nigerians, please think

    • Datti

      Buhari did no wrong by using the new name of the school. The school has a new name and that is currently the legal name which must appear on all letterhead. Make you, this was a reprint and it couldn’t have had the old name. If your old school changes name, any new document you require, including a re run of your failed WAEC results, would be done on the new name. The onus is on you to prove that the names belong to the same school. Ask your lawyer friend

    • Chinedu Don

      so at your age you dont know that no institution issue same certificate twice. At your level of academic exposure you dont know that when you lose your certificate, you can never get it back. what Buhari presented was statement of result and thats exactly what you will get when you lose your own.

        Muhammadu Buhari: A profile
        2015-01-26 15:30
        Muhammadu Buhari was born on December 17, 1942, in Daura, Katsina State. He went to Primary School in Daura and Mai’adua from 1948 – 1952, before proceeding to Katsina middle School in 1953. He attended the Katsina Provincial Secondary School (now Government College Katsina) from 1956 – 1961.

        On graduation from Secondary School in 1961, Buhari went to the Nigerian Military Training School, Kaduna in 1963.

        In October of the same year, he was sent to the officers’ Cadet School in Aldershot in the United Kingdom and was thereafter commissioned Second Lieutenant in 1963 and posted to the 2nd Infantry Battalion, Abeokuta as Platoon Commander in 1963.

        It was at the Abeokuta Garrison that the real traits of a great soldier were identified in the young man. From 1963 – 1964 he was sent for further training on the Platoon Commanders’ Course at the Nigerian Military College, Kaduna.

        In 1965, he went for the Mechanical Transport Officers’ Course at the Army Mechanical Transport School in Borden, England. He went to the Defence Services’ Staff College, Wellington, India in 1973 and to the United States Army War College from June 1979 to June 1980.

        In August 1975, after General Murtala Mohammed took power, he appointed Buhari as Governor of the North-Eastern State, to oversee social, economic and political improvements in the state.

        In March 1976, the then Head of State, General Olusegun Obasanjo appointed Buhari as the Federal Commissioner (position now called Minister) for Petroleum and Natural Resources. When the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation was created in 1976, Buhari was also appointed as its Chairman, a position he held until 1978.

        In 1983, Major-General Buhari and Major-General Tunde Idiagbon were selected to lead the country by middle and high-ranking military officers after a successful military coup d’etat that overthrew civilian President Shehu Shagari on December.

        In 1985, Buhari was himself overthrown in a coup led by General Ibrahim Babangida on August 27th, and other members of the ruling Supreme Military Council (SMC) ostensibly, because he insisted on investigating allegations of fraudulent award of contracts in the Ministry of Defence.

        Between 1995 and 1998, Buhari served as the Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), a body created by the government of General Sani Abacha, and funded from the revenue generated by the increase in price of petroleum products, to pursue developmental projects around the country.

        Buhari contested the Presidential election as the candidate of the All Nigeria People’s Party in 2003 and lost to former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

        Again, he contested under the ANPP banner in 2007 against Late Umaru Musa Yar’adua of the PDP and lost.

        In March 2010, Buhari left the ANPP for the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), a party that he had helped to found.

        Buhari was the CPC Presidential candidate in the 16 April 2011 general election, in which he lost to incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

        He is currently the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential elction.

      “I have been a professor since 1974, when I see a PhD holder I know… I have looked for my brother’s Thesis title and I cannot find it. I have sent people to look for it and the person came back to say, ‘Oga, I no see am’. – Prof. Tam David-West.
      Dumbo is no PhD material and does not have one. OBJ confirmed they (PDP) found out Jona did not complete his PhD and dismissed it as irrelevant. Looking, listening and gauging by his public utterances there is nothing PhD about the Otuoke clown. He cannot even speak in standard 6 English, very elementary with his articulation of answers to simple questions. Very local. Looks like a drunken landlord with sacs under his eyes. Side-by-side, any intelligent person will choose Gen. Buhari over your mumu crook from the creeks. A tout that failed WAEC twice. Go Sitdon!

        As you can see, the staunt from people like you with regards to GEJ’s thesis could not fly. I had mine in 2008 in UI, Ibadan and it cant be found too but I have my certificate. This is as a result of th e poor record keeping habit in Nigeria. Your point cannot hold water.

  • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

    I am really sorry for Buhari. He doesn’t belong to this crowd. Problem is, to get to rule a largely corrupt country like Nigeria, it would appear one needs to ‘strike deals’ with all sorts of shady and dubious characters. Such men/women abound in both PDP and APC. I shook my head when I read what transpired in this press conference. Buhari true to his forthrightness, decided to come out clean and mke a break from his the parts of his past which every genuine democrat has issues with.
    It is good he claims to be a born again democrat. Also commendable he said he can’t change the past but can change the present/future. It was heart warming to hear him say decree 2 ws only possible under a military dictatorship.
    THE LOW POINTS HOWEVER WERE:
    1. Why did Amaechi have to come out and spoil a ‘confession session’ that ws going in the right direction?? The issues Buhari talked about have been the sore point of his presidential ambition. The way Buhari ws going, he ws probably going to apologise to journalists that wer affected by the obnoxious decree! Does Amaechi feel any mortal is too big to apologise?? AN apology wuld have reduced the negatives PDP has to hurl at him.

    2. His claim that ‘there is no basis to debate’ is tragic! Only blindly partisan APC minions will accept this. No sane honest person will waste time arguing this.

    Amaechis action typifies the sort of problems I envisage Buhari would have if ever sworn in(i doubt it): Buhari might have good intentions, BUT THE AMAECHI’S TINUBU’S, ABUBAKAR AUDU’S, SARAKI’S, SYLVA’S WILL UNDOUBTEDLY SHOOT THEM DOWN! SEE WHAT HAPPENED WITH PTF CONSULTANTS AFRI PROJECTS CONSORTIUM??

    After all said and done, Buhari has too much baggage to rule a multi ethnic, religious and cultural nation like Nigeria. His unguarded comments on sensitive issues in recent times have been anything but Nationalistic!

    He can’t have his cake and eat it.

  • Salisu Dan-Gombe

    I WORRY ABOUT ATIKU …………………. What is Atiku doing with Buhari ?

    Atiku should be preparing for his Presidential Election Run in 2019 which I am confident he would win insha’Allah.

    Atiku should know that he is destined to be the next Sarduana of North and Nigeria’s greatest President ever.

    Satan is merely using Buhari to stop Atiku from what Allah has ordained for him.

    • Northerner

      Keep trolling u clueless SOB!
      Atiku is with Buhari whether u like it or not. I’m surprise u are bashing Atiku perhaps because he exposed GEJ yesterday when he went to his house @2am thinking Atiku is a cursed human being like him!

      • August January

        Imagine! President of Nigeria! Atiku said he was already sleeping. I doubt if Jonathan would survive the trauma that would come with his rejection on 28 March

    • TrueNja

      Keep dreaming until your eternity. Atiku can never be the president of Nigeria in his life time b’cos of his corruption. Nigerians do not want another GEJ in office.

      • Salisu Dan-Gombe

        The tag of corruption on Atiku is purely a vindictive Obasanjo invention and has no basis whatsoever.

        Nigerians now know better !!!

        • Mallama A

          Shut up!! Bloody faggot!! Birds of the same feather flock together. Atiku ass kisser! Your lover WILL NEVER BE president of Nigeria!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • OMO SANGO

        Are u minding the bloody fag dreamer? He thinks Atiku will become president? Ha!ha!ha! Maybe in his grave! Atiku the desperate sell out!!

  • Rems Onuoha

    A true democrat will appreciate that Nigerians want a debate. A true democrat will appreciate that there is a laid down process for completing INEC forms and adhere to it. A true democrat will attach their WASC certificate to their INEC forms a required by law. Sometimes its not about your way or the high way, sometimes its about the people’s way and this is what Buhari just cant seem to get. On March 28th Nigerians should in the words of Osita Chidoka select “Democrat by Instinct” Jonathan Goodluck and consign this so called “converted” democrat to history. The evidence shows that Buhari is anything but converted!

    • tundemash

      I guess Dumbo wasn’t a true democrat then since he refused to debate in 2011.

      • Guest

        so because for whatever reason the candidates could not reach an agreement in 2011, then we should further undermine our democratic evolution by not granting a debate in 2015? How can a man hoping to be President choose his positions based on childish tit-for-tat? We are trying to elect a President of 2015 Nigeria you know?

        • tundemash

          Which cacdiadtes could not reach an agreement …… only Dumbo was missing and he chose to debate Dbanj instead. Other candidates debated without Dumbo in 2011 why is Dumbo not debating other candidates without Buhari in 2015 if he really want to debate or is Buhari the only Presidential candidate?
          Go and vote whomever you want to without debate !!! And please do not use cloned PVC cards as card readers will be used.

        • Wähala

          Since 1999 the PDP have declined debates with various candidates, why the sudden emphasis on a debate now? If they have achieved much in 16yrs, they wouldn’t be clamoring for debates to highlight them, their record would speak for itself. Buhari Campaign are organizing Town Hall Meetings and taking questions directly from the electorate, the PDP should make Dumbo available to ordinary Nigerians who would ask pointed, unprepared questions to your moron. For now, Buhari is “indisposed” to charades and silly ridicules.

        • August January

          Mumu!

      • MrFesh+Ifebuche+Paschal

        • tundemash

          ha! ha!! ha !!! Yeah right …. he showed up to debate with Dbanj ….

    • Northerner

      U should’ve post this cr@p in 2011!
      U dumbbb creature!

    • Wähala

      A true democrat would not stage-manage his press conferences. A true democrat would not have debated DeBanj alone. Let him go and debate with Nollywood artiste, Nigerians have heard enough from both campaigns to know who their true democrat is. Dumbo is a fraudulent democrat, don’t vote for GMB if he doesn’t debate your crook… shikena.

  • TrueNja

    I’m sorry for our amiable Nigeria Mandela, General Mohammadu Buhari (GMB). He does not belong to this crowd sitting along side of corrupt Atiku. May the Good Lord deliver GMB from the bondage of these devilish corrupt people.

    Pastor Tunde Bakare just said he trusts Buhari but not his ‘environment’. The only holy pastor has suddenly become a demon being bashed by APC zombies for criticizing Lion of bourdilion, the biggest landlord of Nigeria. Buhari’s environment includes an Agbero who would not allow Buhari to answer questions posed at him in the public but preferred to answer for their hostage.

    BOKOHARI : Thank you very much…but pls learn to refer to me as General Buhari or Imam Buhari. Ok?
    QUESTION : Ok! To start with, how old exactly are you? Bcos @ 80+ you don’t have a single white hair

    BOKOHARI : Who told you that lie? The streets are not soaked with blood yet.
    QUESTION : What is your position on Sharia…the cutting of limbs as punishment etc etc
    BOKOHARI : Let the Muslims bother about that. Is it your limbs that are cut? Let the muslims whose limbs are cut bother and not you.
    QUESTION : You arrested Fela bcos he sang a song that you did not like. You asked that he be beaten and thrown into jail. Do you regret that action?

    QUESTION : Ladies & Gentlemen, may we now take a commercial break. The General’s answer has made our transmitters to begin to overheat. We’ll be back in a moment….

      Drag Yoruba elders and Obas into political jeu is misleading, unlovable and totally unaccepted to yoruba nation,democracy is not the government of elders or Obas but is a government of the people, so it is not acceptable to the Yoruba nation,for any politician to humiliating our elders and Obas for the cause of politics.
      Obas are the father of the nation every citizens are welcome to Oba palace any where in yoruba land,all the political parties and the politicians belong to Obas ,therefore it’s unacceptable for any office holder to force Obas for their endorcement.
      In the past, during Abacha,it was then Oba Awujale that disclose the embezlement given to obas in presidiential villa.
      The politician should sell their political propaganda to the people not to Obas. Oba palace is superior than the office of president in anywhere in the world.
      If at all the president visits any Oba in yoruba land, he must obey our culture…….He must lie down to greet Oba not with arrogant,for Jonathan to sit down and Obas standing arround him is unacceptable to yoruba nation……for Jonathan to put on his shoes in palace of Obas is arrogant and unacceptable to the yoruba people. We see the same Jonathan knel down in front of pastor. Then what Jonathan did for yoruba and yoruba culture to deserve the Obas endorsement?,we will not allow Jonathan to disrespect yoruba culture for his political ambition.
      Those yoruba that are selling the yoruba culture for politics must desist.
      I here by call on Jonathan and pdp to go and play their polity elsewhere.
      Long live Yoruba nation,long live Nigeria.

    Everybody is claiming to be a changed man. He is just been a politician, a useless and clueles one at that. This man lacks the vigour to leads us now. How can he come back to leads after 32 years of destabilising this country. He was asked a question and amaechi interrupted citing one useless thing.. this man has demonstrated it in umpteen time that Nigeria is too big for him. Let’s retire this man for good come march 28. Vote GEJ.

    • Tunsj

      There is no question on my mind that you are describing your hero. Jonathan. PDP has been so despicable and disrespectful since Buhari was nominated by APC. Anyone in their right mind ought to know that Nigeria is going in the wrong direction. PDP leadership is old and their ideas are antiquated and you know it. Also, you know that Jonathan, a PhD holder without thesis. represents the problems not the solutions and this guy lie so shamelessly and brazenly. Keep on voting against your own best interests.

      • samuel

        U are the one voting against your won best interest.. nigeria has grown a lot more under this regime, we became the best economy in Africa and cNN money market said that we are the next best thing. Women are now going independent in nigeria and a lot more.. u just fail to see the good in the leadership of a healthy man.

    A COVER UP SAGA might have been put in place. yes! another saga! Nigerian must be very figilant than before!
    Visiting the southwest and the Oba’s by the presidency might not only to ask for support or endorsement but to use the visit for election rigging cover up,you will agree with me that the meeting have been intensifying now and several close door meetings announce daily, beware Nigerian, not to be drag into ivory coast aftermath election system in which the Inec organise election and the executive declare the rigged result! and the cover up support and endorsement documentaries face up to claim victory. they are capable of doing everything to save their head!

    Grand pa you have nothing to answer at the debate, is it you that don’t know the full name of your running mate or you that don’t know the full meaning of INEC conducting the election you want so badly. I wonder what you will respond to when asked questions on critical issues that is affecting the country. Leave politics to the younger generation and don’t allow Tinubu and his selfish interest send you to an early grave.

  • Reality

    Nigerians I hope you can now hear from the illiterate GMB that he has nothing to offer the country.

  • Acosta

    GMB could not participate in the debate because his intellectual acumen is dilapidated. He has no meticulously planned agenda and all his manifesto are hoax.
    He is yet to tell us how he intends to fight corruption….
    By not prosecuting Tinubu and Amechi I guess
    APC is the worst party ever.

    • Papashango77

      How else do you fight corruption if not to allow the law take it course without interference from the top. Na somebody go tell you how to discipline your children wey they thief your money?

  • Acosta

    Too late for excuses.
    You don’t know the names of your VP, the meanings of INEC and your Party APC, how do you expect to coherently and logically answer any questions asked you?

    Look at a clueless who sombody have to tell him whether to answer a question or not. Imagine if this dictator has his way, I bet you, you will be stripped off, of your human right he will jail more journalist should they speak against him. Remember he has warned media several times. Taken ait and nta to court using BH against channels. Imagine if he wins. Thank GOD for GEJ he is winning. I like my freedom

  • Otile

    Imam’s reasoning for dodging the debate is laughable. He is telling us that he can’t debate Jonathan now but will do so after the elections.

    He is saving his voice for now. After the elections he will find his voice again in court arguing that Janatan cheated hm.

  • evi

    If buhari does not have any respect for the press to the point that he not only refused to debate Jonathan, he even accused and insulted the press organisations that organised the debate ,then bihari will certainly do worse if, God forbid, he is elected

  • lilian ugo

    Nigeria needs a seasoned leader. One that can bring about serious change that will help cushion the negative effect of long period of military dictatorship and deprivation. Such a leader must not come from the military circle or seem to posses questionable educational qualification. In fact there is need to review the nation’s instrument. The basic educational qualifications for various political aspirants need to be reviewed. Nigeria for now with Jonathan is well positioned for that change. But that desired change can only come in a peaceful and violence free environment.

    • Scalywag

      With his PhD what value has jonaTAN added to governance and democracy in Nigeria? His carriage and poise and diction and logic betray the problem with the Nigerian educational system. People bribe their way with sex or money or goods to immoral teachers in exchange for marks. This will NEVER happen under “illiterate GMB”. Infact it is doubtful if the university passed through him

      Well, since Goodluck Jonahan is even worse than Buhari, we have no option than manage the better Buhari. Jonathan is not only a liar, he is more clueless and more desperate. He is now using militias – OPC, MASSOB and valueless traditional rulers after bribing them and sharing the country’s dollars to cause confusion in the coming election. He had worked for 6 years as president and pull Nigeria to greater valley of poverty. He will give a promise he will not fulfill because he doesn’t have the ability. This is why he should not be voted for a second term that will make him and the thieves around him to totally ruin the country.

            If you are less than 40 years of age, you might not know Buhari very well. My opinion about Buhari is what I experienced. I was in secondary school in 1983-84 and had been following the politics of Nigeria from 1979. If in the next 20 0r 30 years and you are giving account of what is happening now in Nigeria, only those who are matured enough to follow politics today will agree with you if you are saying the truth then.
            Whatever you say, TRUTH is TRUTH. You might be ignorant or you have relations benefitting from this government or you are privileged to have a good job or business today in Nigeria or you are just sentimental about APC and Buhari. God will pay everyone accordingly.

            You are ignorant. I was a youth of a common man when Buhari was a military Head of State. The lifes of common man abroad is what Buhari wants for every Nigerian. A right to life for everyone rather than having some people well privilledged while some with their hardwork, intelligence would remain poor as long as they are not connected to help them to get job or for financial assistance to start something.
            The reality is that if all jobless youths and those whose incomes keeps them too poor vote in a free and fare election, it is Sure Buhari is Nigeria’s next president from 2015.

          Most times people say experience is the best teacher. Did you experience Buhari’s Military Regime? Law was made that anybody guilty of Hard Drug trafficking will face dath penalty; why are you hard working now? are you planning to be hard drug trafficker? Buhari only jailed the corrupt politicians of shagari regime while Jerry Rawlings of Gana killed all the corrupt politicians. Why is it that some races are full of sentiments even with their education and exposure? No man is 100% perfect. Challenge me and research by comparing Buhari’s achievements and intension towards the living standards of the common man with the little penalties attached to those drug traffikers and robbers and the journalists who did not dig deep in their information before publishing. also when sinners are suffering, there may be a few innoscent who will be affected,
          Check the internet and see many who suffered under Buhari’s regime and now dying for Buhari to be the next president of Nigeria so that all of us will enjoy our hard labours in whatever fields we have chosen for our living.

          If you 40 years of age downward or you are one of the privileged ones in Nigeria you may think in this way. I am privilledged in this country but my support for Buhari is because I was a youth in secondary school when he was the Head of State. He is the man for the masses. When I look at many less-privileged troubling me for money here and there, the best is to pray for a government other than what we have now, So we need CHANGE.
          A rich man among 10 poor friends is also a poor man, except the rich man is selfish. But why must I be eating when many are hungry. Buhari did it for the common man in 1983-84. He will do it again.

      PEOPLE SHOULD READ ABOUT THE STATE OF NIGERIAN ECONOMY DURING THE SHAGARI REGIME BEFORE THE ARMY INSTALLED BUHARI AS THE HEAD OF STATE. IF ANY ONE WOULD DESIRE SUCH AN ECONOMY.
      IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SAY THAT BUHARI TRUNCATED A DEMOCTARTICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT, BUT TO ALSO EXAMINE THE FARING & WELLBEING OF THE PEOPLE BEING BEING GOVERNED UNDER THE DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED GOVERNMENT.

I DID NOT READ THIS IN THE MEDIA. I EXPERIENECED IT.
      IF THE VISION OF BUHARI FOR THE LIVING STANDARD OF THE COMMON MAN IS ALLOWED IN A DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM, THEN SOME DAYS TO COME, MANY NIGERIANS H=WHO HAVE RUN ABROAD WILL HAVE REASONS TO COME BACK HOME. SAVINGS FROM FIGHTING CORRUPTION COULD BE USED TO ESTABLISH INDUSTRIES.
      I URGE EVERY ONE TO LOOK FOR THE POSITIVE THINGS BUHARI HAD DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY AND NOT USE THE ACTIONS THAT ARE MILITARY TO JUDGE HIM. BUHARI WAS THE MILITARY LEADER OF THAT REGIME AND PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED HIM FOR WHAT HE DID NOT DO ALONE. WAS DAVID MARK NOT PART OF THE MILITARY REGIME?
      LET’S REMOVE SENTIMENTS FROM OUR JUDGEMENTS AND LET THE LIVES OF THE COMMON BE OUR CONCERN. WHEN THERE IS GOOD VALUE FOR LABOUR FOR EVERY CITIZEN (AS IN UK, US ETC). THERE WILL BE HIGH LEVEL OF SECURITY AMONG PEOPLE.
      WE THE YOUTHS, WE GO TO SMAE SCHOOLS AND FOR YOUTH SERVICE, YET WE LOCALISE OURSELVES BY BEING TRIBALISTIC IN OUR THINKING AND ACTION. WE CANT MOVE FOWARD IF WE CONTINUE LIKE THIS.

    General Buhari said he is now a converted democrat, but if he insists not to debate his opponent, he will lose the election. #DebateNow

    You can only debate with a performing government not one that has relegated the Presidency.

    At least 40% of former military men are now in the Nigerian government in one position or the other. The senate president was a former military man, who has ever questioned them of what they did when they served in the military. President Buhari took over power because Nigeria was in the same state that it is today, where elected rulers were mismanaging our resources. Our country needed a disciplinarian, and a drastic measure was needed to put us in the right direction – that was why he did what he did, and most Nigerians were happy with that. Most of those accusing him now were for him then, and some of them served in his government: time has passed and the chameleon has changed. He did not imprison people by choice, heads of panels found them guilty and then recommended imprisonment. Those where not found guilty were set free. Now we have forgotten how people lined up to be served at banks and petrol stations, how our environments were clean, how civil servants report early to work, how bribery became a taboo, how our economy was heading in the right direction, etc…etc. I have not yet met this man in person, but I have met him through his good governance, good policies, and his dedication and love for our country- Nigeria.

    Buhari is not the problem, Nigerians are their own worst enemies . The 21st Century has removed the lies of Chukwumerijie and Ofonagoro if any one remember’s them. Nigeria is a mess and we are all fiddling out thumbs and playing religion,Ethnic politics. By the End of the year irrespective of who wins the economy that has been advertised and published as transformed will reveal it true color. A pregnant woman does not need to advertise. The man GEJ will not be a manager in a multi-national company,let alone continue as our President because he lacks everything a leader needs to have.The NIS employment saga, people should have been jailed for manslaughter but we excuse it and explain it away. Brothers and Sister the issues that face us are so serious and I wish all Nigerians the grace to bear the suffering and hardship we all are going to experience once the elections are over. Finally I Love Nigeria but can’t say I am Loving Nigerians in the season

    Buhari hiding behind his party’s lies to try to win. If he were the democrat he pretends to be he would refute all the slander that has been told and face his opponent in a true debate based on facts and vision for the country, not shy away from a confrontation, hoping Nigerians will believe the lies instigated by the APC and vote for him.

    Come on! We all know how senile Bubu is. In a debate he wouldn’t stand a chance. He can hardly memorize a linear speech, let alone a whole debating logic. No, rather than dragging him on TV to be crushed, let him see doctors to see if the poor old man’s prostate caner hasn’t worsened.

    with the recent pulling out of APC from de forth coming presidential debate, with reasons best known to them. one would ve succumbed to reasons being shared around on social media DAT the teeming supporters of APC would lose faith in the party and that it will affect de out come of the election negatively for them.
    but they ve forgotten so soon DAT GEJ did not attend 2011 presidential debate and no body cared abt it neither did opposition party cried foul.

    APC should be allow to make decision themselves without attacks from oppositions .
