    Osibanjo is the kind of a leader that can take Nigeria to greater heights, detribalized, God fearing and efficient.
    Buhari is the curse troubling Nigeria full of hate,division, clannish, religious, ethnic bigotry. May God give buhari a long time conducive rest in London, so that Nigeria shall move forward.

      May you sleep this night and never wake forever.

    It is gratifying to note that proven Igbo Leaders of thought are now speaking out and exposing the madness that IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu represent. The best way to get a referendum in any Igbo enclave is for Nnamdi Kanu to form a political party or join one . He should test his popularity at the poling booth like Ojukwu did. That way, he would get to learn the difference between curiosity and support.
