    Why do you release a photo taken more than 13yrs ago? This is a Pyongyang style. This is pure FRAUD. When has Nigeria become a North Korea where official lies are fed to millions? But Nigerians are no fuuls. They know how a sparsely educated 75yr old should look. Oh my Nigeria! The blind leading the sighted.

    • Truthometer

      Still nursing your electoral defeat wounds? Please, crawl back to your cave in otuoke. Welcome to new Nigeria.

      Why are you so frustrated? Why stay miserable? Do something with your life that adds value to this world. The APC and its members are not your problem.

    • B.Messi


      No wonder someone called them APC; All-Photoshop-Congress!
      That was how fayose caught them when they packaged one room in NICON and claimed na London.

      I dey laff o!

      This is how you deceive yourselves. Which Nigeria is blessed with ‘abundant resources’? Is it Nigeria or the resources of the United East & South ? Tell me, which one resources can you point to in the North & West? Wasters and corrupt leaders of the North & West are back again, to loot the resources of the East and West, but the end is near. Is that not why you campaigned for elections from Sambissa? Why you tell us an uneducated 75yr old is the best fit for a Nigeria of highly intelligent people? There is a limit to deception and falsehood. In due course, Nigeria and its component counties will take shape. Water will always find its level.

      Nigeria shud be led by the best and not mediocres who are selected on the basis of such banalities as ethnicity and religion. Now, how do you expect performance in Waec exams to improve?

      • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

        What is a united East and South? Who or what are Nigerias counties? Who campaigned from Sambissa?
        It appears that you are off your medication. Stop speaking Gibberish, go take your medication, and put your mouth in the general position of STFU!! Imbecile!

        • Kareem

          Typical APC lowlife. Vulgar and obscene.
          Why are you all like your father wahala??

          • You sound like a typical looser.. Why not move back to your cave and continue licking your wound there instead of coming to the public here to display your psychosis

      • Where is this maladjusted moron from. It’s certain you know nothing about the entity call Nigeria. Or paherps you’re off your medication as gaga said

  • idama

    Messrs Buhari! See packaging!

  • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

    Osibanjo Should retake this picture and remove the ridiculous smile from his face, it looks like somebody is molesting him behind the scene!
    What is that filthy thing that looks like a flag behind Buhari? Replace it with the Nigerian flag immediately.

    • Marquis_di_Gorgonzola

      Uncle gaga, na now u dey talk!
      I was looking at that flag too and though it’s likely to be the APC flag, I think it’s rather inappropriate there.
      For official photos, it shld be the green/white..as the president of Nigeria.
      RESPECT Jor..

      • Otile

        It looks like IS flag to me.
