  • Ha

    General my sincere appeal to you is that you should please and please not eat or drink anything during all these meetings up to 29th of May. Any time you meet them please tell them you are fasting, and if it is in the night please tell them you have already had your dinner at home.

      FETISH MIND…… You obviously dont understand the ruling class

      • Ha

        Yes. It was really out of the fetish mind and the misunderstanding of the ruling class that they shot Murtala Mohammed died, and poisoned Abacha and Yar’ Adua. Your brain is not a meaningless biological composition. It was created for you to think, reflect and pro-act. How could you eat from a group that wished you death and claimed they were tired of state burial, and even went on to publicize on newspapers? How could you dare eat from a group that publicly claimed that they prefer to hand over to military rather than to you? Please don’t Act without thinking like Orubebe or ridiculously like the Rivers Professor who could not read his own hand-writing.

          you don’t GETIT dope do ya? u never will.

  • Goodluck Jonathan

    It’s a pity Mr. President. I wish you could hold on to power. I have already placed a bet on your ass, because I thought you would not handover power to Baba. where are those who were deceiving you before the election?

  • statesman

    There is a battle ahead. It will be fought with courage. This conspiracy to
    kill the 1999 Constitution must be defeated and laid to rest in perfect peace.
    Let word go forth that a military coup is more acceptable than this daylight
    violation of our national Constitution. Whatever it takes we shall refuse and
    fight to refuse any nonsense inauguration of Muhammadu Buhari as president
    for his having clearly violated the 1999 Constitution and sworn falsely on oath.

    • JustMe

      Statesman or Robbie. The great internet warrior/ noisemaker. Kindly hug a transformer quickly before the inaugural day to save yourself further heartache. Otherwise stop the noise! We don pass that stage abeg.

      There is alternative for YOU jump into lagoon

  • Akpaka

    Though now too late, I believe Jonathan can learn a few things from Buhari about leadership and being presidential in discussions or responding to questions. The Please Help me Decide (PHD) certificate he obtained from Uniport is not enough. Buhari, please never trust a clueless man.

        • tundemash

          cl0wn ……. if you don’t pay tax then your d@ft post is understandable. Go to FIRS and Customs website and see how much they contribute to the economy. Ignorant f00l!

    • Good Smaritan

      There must really be lag in the manner some of us process thoughts. Did you really think the elections were about propaganda? The truth is, who ever is seeking Buhari’s disqualification on the basis of either the 1999 constitution or INEC’s 2010 electoral act, is only being a moron. The General, went to court to swear an affidavit that his academic documents were missing but records of these documents were available with the Nigerian Army for sighting.. Now tell me, how on earth has this contravened the 1999 constitution or the electoral act? However, since the military decided to become partisan, which was rather unfortunate, they have also made a u-turn, from their earlier stand, to confirm that these records were available with them. I will advice that you learn to employ the use of common sense whenever you decide to join the bandwagon. People like FFK and Olisa Metuh have all accepted their fate, talk less of your kind, who hates as a masquerade (Using social media as cover)

  • Guguru

    It feels so good watching the e-rats of the PDP foaming at the mouth like tired horses whenever they remember that Buhari, an honorable man, is now their President.

    “My Campaign Promises Can Be Changed”. – Buhari.

    **our promises of Change and APC manifesto, are not Quran or Bible, they are subject to change to meet reality.

    The President-elect Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has shocked Nigerians when he announced that the promises that the All Progressives Congress, APC, made during the nationwide presidential campaign which were contained in the Party’s manifesto were not words from the Quran or Bible, adding that the pledges are subject to change.

    Buhari who stated this during an interactive session with journalists on Television Continental, TVC reiterated that the party’s manifestos were subject to modification, as they are only made for election purposes only.

    The Buhari-led APC had promised fundamental political reforms and improvement in governance, more transparency and accountability.
    The party also promised to urgently secure the territorial integrity of the Nation. It said it will never leave the defense of the nation in the hands of hunters, children, and civilian JTF.
    The APC presidential candidate had also said that he would ensure that the Naira was equal to the Dollar in value, if elected president.
    During the interview Buhari emphasized that on ministerial appointment, the party has a great role to play.
    “I would ask Nigerian political observers to study our manifesto; it is not a Bible or Quran which you can’t change to meet reality.
    “Our manifesto was made by very experienced Nigerians but it’s subject to modification.
