    Thank you Pius. I quite agree with you on the need for Buhari to start doing things differently by retiring his campaign fund and how to repay the loan . I will also want to suggest that since some of the funds donated by the political office holders to the Campaign purse of GEj were public funds, the funding deserve to be probed.

    I quite agree with you on the two steps to be immediately taken as soon as GMB resumes office. But I don’t agree with you that punch was wrong on 2 trillion Naira. It was possible to take the same kind of amount in 2011 thru fuel subsidy scam and Nigerians were surcharged to make up the deficit thru removal of ‘fuel subsidy’. Presently the govt has no time to surcharge Nigerians, so asking for refund is the only alternative open to them.

    What is wrong with Piusmycin? Shouldnt you be ashamed of yourself? You’ve become overly guily of that which you accuse Punch of! Hear PiusMycin:

    “If you are close to Nigerian missions, ask them what has been happening but do not name names in order not to endanger people’s jobs….”

    If you don’t ‘name names’ wont it amoumt to the same “reliable source’ problem? This is how u all contribute to the problem of Nigeria. By the way, how you take know say embassy staff dey suffer? Your relations & village people full there remain abi? and that is why all of una dey want die foe useless ‘one Nigeria’. Nonsense!.
