  • Victor

    Jona isn’t there for some reason

    • KBE

      He does not want to identify with hypocrite like Obj.

      • Victor

        Lolz! By definition a politician’s middle name is HYPOCRITE, Jona inclusive.

    • Arabakpura

      He was invited but 10 minutes into the drama, he called the current VP that he was attending an Egbesu ceremony in gbaramatu kingdom!

      • Victor

        Lolz. I no know about dat one ooo

  • Abidilagungun

    VIP, vagabonds in power. Fela died too early

  • ukoette ibekwe

    Nigerians deserve this mockery by so called ex-leaders.

  • Gary

    Please remember to take your choir to southern Kaduna to sing this song to the besieged Christians now facing genocide under Osinbajo and his boss.

    Una don chop belleful and dey collect pension and free cars, why una no go sing?

    • Höly Wähala

      Don’t mind those hypocrites… none of them has thought it necessary to even speak up against the carnage. Mtchwww!

    • Lanre

      Thank you very much. What a waste. May God, The Almighty forgive us all.

  • So oju abe niko

    This is beyond ridiculous.

    • Kamalu

      They have simply mocked Nigerians. Where are their Muslim counterparts?

  • Angry Niaja

    Silly old men, why must everything end up being trivialised into ethnic divide, and why is it Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba, the last time I checked there are a lot more ethnic people in Nigeria, why was Gowon singing in whatever dialect, is he no longer able to speak English, I beg, this wayo is enough.

  • Felicia Kamen

    This is beautiful! I love it! God bless our elders and give them grace to know Him personally.

  • obiora

    They are SLAVE Traders . That prove that they do not CARE. People are dieing because of Nigeria and they are Singing for Nigeria to Contienue.

    • musa aliyu

      Anyone who dies is patriotic death. They’re patriotic in songs. Both groups are clowns anyway.

  • Okokondem

    Does any of these men bear responsibility for why a country with so much potential, and so much revenue from sale of crude oil over the decades, is so behind in infrastructure and other areas of development. Do these men not have shame?

    Are these men not qualified, and do they not owe it to Nigerians to speak out against certain obvious questionable practices in the government such as the allegations about budget padding?

    Obasanjo condemned the practice in a recent interview, and I believe more of similar voices from these retired generals would galvanize momentum against the practice.

    Instead we have a group of men who cannot get enough of being in the limelight. What a disgrace.

  • JasV

    Well done guys. When it is sallah let the muslim leaders sing their own and we will watch. However, the one who connived with Babangida and Bachabacha to deprive MKO of the presidency won from the fairest election ever held in our country better be prepared to meet God and MKO to explain yourself.

  • Arabakpura

    Of all the voices that sang here, I love that of Jonathan! Well done chiefs!

  • princegab

    They “pee-ed and wee-ed” on Nigeria with last breath are spewing hot spit on the land.
    May God forgive them.

  • This is a first step in the public atonement for the destruction of great nation. Each one should apologize in their hearts to the Almighty.

  • kunle akindude

    Is this the best these idiots can come up with at this time of agony when many Nigerians cannot afford to eat or get salaries paid by their respective State Governments? What a shameful and ill advised group of people

  • Otile

    This is absurd, how can Pastor Osibande be singing from the same hymnal book with arena Gown, the mass murderer? What a bunch of hypocrites! Nigeria is headed for further calamities.

    • Otile

      …arna Gowon

  • Obande

    They don’t need a choir. They just need to be honest and truthful, and return all the money they stole during their time.

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      Most especially the gorilla of Ota, excluding Osibajo

      • Nkem

        The man did his best for Nigeria; arguably the best president Nigeria ever had.

        • Tunji Olarewaju

          Read Okey Idibe’s Culture of low expectations, i believe you are suffering from that syndrome

          • Nkem

            I write too. And although I don’t know what you are suffering from, I have also written about “The Tragedy of Complexes”. Maybe you are suffering from that one – waiting for someone else to think for you.

  • kumi

    What is wrong with is osinbajo na sing they come they sing for Nigerians that are hungry shame to you people una eat belly full to open mount sing person way never eat they sing

  • kumi

    People way take brom for hand take sweep all nigeria bank account and put people in poverty

  • Lanre

    Watched this because I am a Christian, no other reason. I am happy for the comments here. Bunch of hypocrites. Especially, that Shonekan. They could not even sing in harmony, all discordant. Waste!

  • raji

    Most of you that are criticizing this leaders are even worse more than them.

  • wode

    This is just a sign of sobering in the minds of the past leaders albeit it’s rather hypocritical. They have seen the effects of the worst they did and realized that things could have been done separately, as the past is being unearthed and new course is being channeled for the nation.

  • Decimator

    Definitely it seems we are there; Were among these not some of the men that claimed to have perfected the non-existing Unity of the Nigerian Enclave, by butchering millions of their should be fellow countrymen, now seeing their only hope at the end of their atrocities in God Almighty to keep the country they have proudly taken the credit of for keeping happily United, which accorded them their self-acclaimed patriots and lovers of their country?

    Citizens of the Nigerian Enclave; be ready for more wonders. This seems to be the beginning of what is still come.
