UPDATE: 24 killed, 54 injured in Maiduguri bomb attack

File Photo: Scene of an explosion in Maiduguri on November 25, 2014

Twenty four people have been confirmed dead and at least 54 injured in a twin bomb attack that occurred in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital early Tuesday, health officials said.

The Executive Secretary of the Borno State Hospital Management Board, Dr. Salisu Kwayabura, told the state governor, Kashim Shettima, that the 54 injured people were admitted at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital and the Umaru Shehu Ultra-Modern Hospital, Maiduguri.

“Out of this number, 14 of them who were critically injured have been referred to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH) for proper treatment while 20 have been discharged,” Dr. Kwayabura said.

Also briefing the governor, the state’s permanent secretary in the ministry of health, Alhaji Sanda, said 24 bodies were taken to the teaching hospital morgue.

Witnesses and security sources who were at the scene of the minutes after the bombing incident said more people had died and some of the identified corpses were taken away for burial by the relatives even before the rescue workers arrived.

Mr. Shettima described the bombers as “wicked, barbaric and heartless”

“We are all shocked by this heartless and barbaric act of wickedness; what on earth could justify that act of choosing poor traders and children as targets of this heinous attack,” he questioned.

Two suspected female suicide bombers dressed in full hijab detonated bombs hidden under their garments near Maiduguri main market. Many of the dead were traders.

The explosions occurred at about 11:20 a.m. at a crowded Maiduguri commercial area called One-Way.

The bomb attack was the first in the city since July 2.

According to witnesses’ accounts, there was a first explosion that killed three women before the second one exploded and killed many persons who gathered at the scene of the first blast.

Abba Aji an official of the Civilian-JTF, told reporters that at the time he arrived the scene, 11 bodies were still yet to be evacuated, while many other corpses and several injured victims had been conveyed to hospital.

According to the Civilian-JTF official, the bombers were two girls dressed in full hijab.

“One of them detonated herself and about three persons – all women – were killed, and minutes after that when people came round to see what happened, another bomb went off after a girl screamed and many people, over 30 of them got killed.

    Now tell me what these blood thirsty criminals are fighting for? Killing your own people to create insecurity. Someone please tell this clowns to stop. Where are the condemnations? Sultan please issue a fatwa on this. Why is it so hard for the head of islam in nigeria to issue a fatwa on this act?

    • Wähala

      You are the clown here pal, because your idea of a fatwa is warped. Name one country in the world with terrorism threat where a Spiritual Leader issued a fatwa before their president went after the bad guys. Not in Syria, not in Iraq, not even in faraway Columbia with FARC… and damn sure not in Chad where Dumbo’s pal, President Idriss, effectively combated terrorists and won. Cameroon nko… is President Biya calling on their Muslim clerics to condemn Boko Haram or write them a letter? Serious leaders take their job seriously. Dumbo simply has no nuts to be Nigerian President, he doesn’t have focus and vision necessary of a leader of even my town’s union where I belong… Go-siddon!

      • the truth

        daft and clown you are. Education and reasoning is not for everyone as you know, and you qualify into that category. I have adviced you not to just stay in your parlor, sip odeku and pour out beer parlor discussions on this forum,. This forum is for educated minds.I employ you to go to global terrorism index and do some research. Fareed Zakariah a renowned harvard and yale educated government analyst who hosts his show on cnn, pointed out only 7% of terrorist uprisings are crushed by military might. And the other 93% are saddled into local policing and dialogue(integration of this militants into society)I never read the global index before i posted my solution to this crisis 2-3 weeks ago. That is a reasoning mind, not a daft who comes here to post bs. You mentioned America, let me again educate you. When the forces captured Baghdad they could not defeat the insurgents who did suicide bombing and road bombs, ieds and open militancy, but once they contacted sadr forces and the sunnis in saddams hometown of tikrit their was calm and relative peace, without firing a shot. For your daft head after over 10 years America is yet to defeat terror in iraq and afghanistan after invasion. Do you ask your daft head why? Until islamic radicalization is stopped at the mosques by your brothers and sisters who sympathize with you u cant defeat terror. shikena

I have told you to stay away from me, because lies can be proven to be false, but facts cant. I am of the school of thought who believe on empiricism and factual cognition as opposed to your personal insinuation dogma. Stay away from my discourse.

Ode!

    • tundemash

      and after issuing the fatwa .. what happens ? Or is this just same method of looking for someone to blame ? Now it is Sultan responsible for not issuing a fatwa? Do Boko Haram recognise Sultan ? Has Boko Haram not killed Muslim Emirs in the North so what stops them killing Sultan if they have the opportunity ?

      Can you tell us what Dumbo keep going to Chad to do every and then? Why has the Chadian President not been here ? If Boko Haram springs attack from Chad, why hasn’t Dumbo ordered the Nigerian army to overrun it ? Did America not go after Alqaeda in Afhganistan ? Who issued a fatwa before Bush/Obama went after Alqaeda?

      Mr. D@ft …..Keep waiting for Sultan to issue fatwa … whatever that means !

      • Wähala

        As if a fatwa is an order for all Muslims to pick up arms and carry it out. Talk is free, likewise fatwas. Frist, you have to catch Abu Shekau before carrying out the Sultan’s fatwa, a thug that is even looking for the Sultan to kill… but, who will bell the cat? Certainly not Dumbo!

        • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

          A fatwa is not symbolic in Islam,it becomes a duty once issued by the right authority. The Sultan should issue public condemnation like Emir Sanusi did recently,he cannot hide away in his palace and only appear to play cheap politics. This BH insurgency can only be solved by northerners. A typical case was in Iraq,once the Sunni tribes turned against the insurgence,they were defeated and that helped the Americans to withdraw.

          • the truth

            thank you bros, this guys don’t follow world politics or know anything apart from odeku bottle

          • Wähala

            You were not following world politics when Dumbo’ s hand was caught in the cookie jar of lies… share your views! The Sultan has said killing in the name of Islam is unIslamic… that’s enough condemnation and all the fatwas you need, you hear? Were Abu Zaqawi and Osama killed because of fatwas? Keep phooling your mumu, his/your days are certainly numbered. Just pray he doesn’t get impeached… Gbomojomo terrorist Ijaw President.

        • the truth

          Ask how the fatwa is used, you daft. As i said if you are not learned crawl back into your odeku bottle. When the supreme leader issued a fatwa in the hostage crisis and jimmy carters reign what was the result? wsn’t he the head of all shiite’s in iran?

          • Wähala

            Both you and Tawanda are quite stupiid. No sense watering stones with clowns hustling for crumbs. I said mention one country where a fatwa has been used to fight terrorism… abi Cameroon ati Chad no get Muslims? Who issued a fatwa before their armies went to war against terrorists? Shikena!

          • the truth

            f**l Shaikh Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri from Pakistan issued a fatwa against al qaeda.there are many fatwas. As i said i will continue to educate you.You are a clown with beer parlor discussion here. I will let you to post the other fatwas issued, do some research with this your coconut brain

          • Wähala

            Listen you misguided Aborigine, the Sultan or anyone else in Nigeria is not going to write the Boko Haram, he is not going to issue any fatwas before your Dumbo sends our Army to work… You can rant and curse all you want, the day of reckoning is at hand for your drunk… he will be impeached. Sssshh!

          • the truth

            So after research and me educating you, can you apologize to me on your earlier comment “Both you and Tawanda are quite stupiid. No sense watering stones with
            clowns hustling for crumbs. I said mention one country where a fatwa has
            been used to fight terrorism… abi Cameroon ati Chad no get Muslims?
            Who issued a fatwa before their armies went to war against terrorists?
            Shikena!” There have been hundreds of fatwas by reputable islamic clerics which include the grand mufti custodian of the holy dome(mosque),. I have told you don’t engage me in any discourse because your level of reasoning and factual coloration is really poor. I observe you (tundemash)post lies and nonfactual write-ups on regular basis but i ignore them, gullibles believe you and give you cheap likes not knowing they have been fed lies. I would advice you(tundemash) to use your coconut brain to do some research before posting anything.f**l

          • Wähala

            You have a thing with apologies don’t you? Didinrin. As far as I’m concerned, after deviating to banter with you and Tawanda bcos you were both Incommunicado during Abati’s lie-lie tweet, the topic still remains that the Boko Haram are again on the rampage after your moron visited President Idriss Deby of Chad… why? He (Dumbo) is blackmailing the NASS into extending his SoE so he can keep pocketing security vote to use in rigging elections. Let’s move on, discuss that if you want to read from me henceforth! Per apologies… go ask your mama to apologize for bringing a miscreant like you into this world, you hear? Ask your mama to apologize to me first… the ikpo nkwu woman!

          • the truth

            our mama should be the one to not only apologize to me but to all
            nigerians, for sleeping with a mogadishu(somalian) man and having you as
            a child. As far as i am concerned she thought u would not have his
            somali traits for terrorism, but indeed you did take after the
            chameleon. I will advice you(tundemash) to be on course with your
            history and one day travel to somalia and have discuss with your people. you will not apologize for intentionally abusing and lying to people. How many times have i caught you lying, and after i produce facts to show you are blatantly lying(which you admit)you stubbornly refuse to apologize, you as stubborn like your fathers kinsmen. Next time please go watch captain philips

          • Wähala

            Fraudster,
            I see, Reno just reminded you that you posted the same comment twice, that’s cheating. Thieves don’t trust each other that’s why the police always win. You tried to pull a fast one there and like Dumbo, your hands hanged in the cookie jar. Ole. Live a clean life… remains my advise to you!

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        The average Muslim listens and obeys the Imam at the Mosque more than the Governor…do not forget Sharia holds sway in those states. It is therefore imperative that the leader of the Muslim Uma ie the Sultan of Sokoto should take a more proactive and in fact confrontational role in the war against Boko-haram.
        The Sultan has been leading from behind unlike the late Emir Bayero of Kano who called them Murderers and criminals publicly despite his old age.

      • Otile

        Illah Illah Illah la Muhammadu ra su laaaa. I finally discovered how Abubakar cunningly came up with his internet name, tundemash. As I was going through the list of Federal Islamic APC chieftains,
        I saw one Tijjani Musa Tumsah, a devout Muslim. He happens to be No. 5 man in the party, the overall National
        Secretary. Gbam. If you know anything about cryptography, youwill quickly find out that Abubakar craftily coined tundemash from Tijjani Musa Tumsah.

        I was wondering how a true son of Oodua would add ‘mash’ tothe beautiful name Tunde to mess the culture up. The answer is; he is doing it for the moneyhe receives under the table moonlighting as the National Secretary of APC. What a wonderful world. Abubakar tundemash, is this who you are?

            i replied with a name of a fatwa issuer, an islamic cleric of high repute. Where is the sultan on this. To show you how daft and lack of research you encompass, you never knew many islamic clerics have issued fatwas on terrorism. Or Didn’t u know the grand mufti, the sear of the holy grand mosque issued a fatwa on terrorism in its hay day. So if the grand mufti can issue a fatwa why can’t sultan of sokoto. Please use your coconut head to do some research.

          • Wähala

            Your stupidity knows no bounds, your narrow mind could not expand on the meaning of my question. However you understood it, has the issuance of fatwa resulted in END TO TERRORISM in any of those countries? Has any known terrorists been killed by fatwas? That’s the broader meaning of my question. You can’t fight insurgency with 20,000 soldiers in 3 states and wait for the Sultan to issue a fatwa… we’ve been there before, when Dumbo was waiting for Buhari, IBB, and virtually every Northerner to condemn the St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Mandala bombings. So I’m not surprised at your folly. Do a round robin and ask every Imam and Emir to issue a fatwa… Ediot.

    I have said this before and I will say it again. We need to find out Jonathan’s relationship with the state of Isreal. Isreal has been his favourite destination not only for religious purpose, but for other things which we don’t know. Remember that he handed a huge contract to an isreali company to monitor the country’s internet activities. Isreal has suddenly become a ‘friend’ of

    I foresee a brewing rift between America and Isreal on the issue of Nigeria. Remember that the Obama administration doesn’t hide the fact that they detest the way and manner of Benyamine Netanyahu which means Isreal and the United States are not ontge same page. In other words – America wants Jonathan to go but Isreal wants him to stay. Why do you think outgoing President Jonathan wrote an article in the Washington post and paid an American firm some big money to launder his image in the USA?

    Furthermore, anytime I see Goodluck Jonathan travel abroad for some meeting or conference, I ask myself : “do we have a foreign policy at all”? President has traveled for abroad doing nothing but begging for support to fight boko haram. Is that the president we want beyond 2015? Hell no!!!

    All Jonathan’s shady deals like the money flown to SA could have been leaked by the Americans against the will of Isrealis. As a matter of fact, The Jonathan administration has never gotten the support of Barack Obama since Jonathan became President. This is also, not being helped by constant blaming of America for not selling us arms by the presidency. Why is the presidency and PDP not putting the blame on Britain? After all, Nigeria used to be a British colony. There are some dirty games being played by Goodluck Jonathan in the international community just because he’s fighting for relevance and support for his administration.

    Jonathan could have been wrongly advised to employ the services of the Isrealis in whatever capacity in order to counter the United States. But that is never going to work. Jonathan has shot himself in the foot many times.

    This argument could appear not to be true, but a discerning mind will grab the points and also research further.

    Jonathan has failed and he can never get it right. Let’s Vote him out in 2015. As fellow Nigerians, other political parties have the right to be in power. Let’s vote for CHANGE.

    • the truth

      You see how you reason “In other words – America wants Jonathan to go but Isreal wants him to stay” so america now decides who is going to be nigeria president. Or anybody america decides to be president for their own interest should be nigeria’s choice. You should be ashamed for this comment. And when people like you talk i begin to weep, because you have no clue but speak based on what others say or what you cook. Who says America is having issues with Israel? Who is America’s number one ally? didn’t you see the israel-Palestine rift just months ago? looking forward to engage you in a fact based discourse not insinuations.

      • King Carlos

        Let me tell you what you don’t know, Even though isreal is america’s number 1 ally, obama’s administration has not hidden the fact that they don’t support Isreal’s policies especially on the issue of Palestine. If you don’t know, the US congress is the biggest backer of Isreal in the American government. And that’s real separation of power not your GEJ that invades other arms of govt at will.

        America is a world super power, if your Jonathan believes America is not important to his government, then why is he shouting that USA didn’t sell arms to him? I guess you need to take classes in foreign policy.

        • the truth

          i am part of american foreign policy based on my job, so trust me when i tell you America and Israel have no rifts. I didn’t tell you America is not a super power, i am telling you America has no right telling you and i who needs to be our president. As i said i am neither a jonathan supporter or an apc supporter. It is the slave mentality that makes you feel america can tell u and i who is to be the next president. Obama has come out on so many occasions to condemn palestine and support israel. Which country do you think is still holding the vote for Palestine to be a member of the security council and a full fledged member of the un? IS it Russia, China , Canada or USA? Please do research before opening your mouth.

          • King Carlos

            Look at this illiterate saying ” i am part of american foreign policy” . Please tell us how ‘you are part of American foreign policy’. The State Dept has better hands to work with rather than hire unscrupulous people like you. You claim to be part of American foreign policy but you are rising in defense of a moribund foreign policy of the Jonathan administration. If you are truly vast in US FP like you claimed, you will be able to tell that Netanyahu has had problems with the White House since the day he ‘lectured President Obama on Isreali and Palestine land/settlement issues in front of the press at the White House. Bibi also campaigned indirectly for Mitt Romney before the last presidential election. These and many more has created problems between Obama and Netanyahu.

            Please go register for Foreign Policy classes. Any discussion that doesn’t have to do PDP/APC, Christian/Muslim/Ibo/Hausa is always a problem for you people. think BEFORE OPENING YOUR MOUTH to interact with intellects.

          • Peter

            Please read and comprehend and not just to conclusion. The Truth says “I am “vast” in American Foreign Policy”, and not ‘part’ of their part of their foreign policy. So please take note so that you don’t confuse others. Part of our problem today is the activities of those who say what they don’t know.

      Nigeria is home to more than 90 million Christians…..the Jewish state of Israel has been helping in projects in the Eastern and southern parts of Nigeria for more than 50 years,in fact they never turned their back on Biafra even as the world looked the other way as genocide was unleashed .
      The Jewish state of Israel holds a special place in our hearts apart from being the custodians of our holy land and nothing can break that bond,Ndigbo in particular can never be part any country hostile to Israel. As for your unsubstantiated conspiracy theory about the Obama administration and Israel’s Bibi Nathanyahu,all I know is that the bond between Israel and the USA is strong and unshakable !!

If you truly want your independent biafra why don’t you just renounce your citizenship and stay country-less till the United Nations invite Biafra.

          You displayed a very high degree of slavish mentality in your above comment,where are you from ?
          I have never denied Biafra and will never. Look here,Nigeria is a sovereign nation but unfortunately we are that only on paper.Those Fulani who jump from one embassy to another selling their so-called Nigeria are directly responsible for the obstacles this administration is having even in simple issues as obtaining weapons to fight a terrorist insurgence.
          The Fulani controlled this country for more than 38 years on a stretch but there was never a case of a southerner hopping into such unholy alliance with foreigners in a desperate bid to pull down the government.
          Anyway,the oil bloc review MUST happen ,no matter what they do they cannot continue to control 80% of Nigeria’s productive oil blocks,if they like they can assemble the whole western countries and most powerful oil lobbies of the world,the rule of equity,justice and fairness must prevail here !!

            This is arrant nonsense, you are blaming other tribe for Jonathan’s failure without mentioning Jonathan’s incompetency. North or no North- JONATHAN IS A FAILURE . Are the fulanis stopping him from giving Nigerians constant power supply? Did the fulanis pack money into Ayo’s private jet and send it to South Africa.

            However, My discussion here is about how Jonathan has performed poorly in terms of Nigeria’s foreign policy. I never thought he could go to Chad to hug and smile with Chadian President in Ndjamena after the fake and imaginary ceasefire they had with boko haram. There ought to be a body language from a president. Did you notice the body language between Obama and Putin when they met recently in China?, Likewise China’s Xi Jinping and Japan’s Shinzo Abe. World leaders send messages through their body languages. Jonathan should have gone to Chad with a stern face to show that he is not happy with the failed cease fire, how are we even going to know if Ali Modu Sherrif was not there. Smiling to Chad could be interpreted as meaning Jonathan is happy with boko haram activities.

            A government that has no strategy for its health care also has no foreign policy. This is not a serious government my people, JONATHAN MUST BE SENT BACK TO OTUOKE.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            You come across as childishly simplistic in your assessments . Can you please e numerate the successes of those Fulani who controlled and squandered the oil and gas revenue for 4 decades institutionalised corruption and left Nigeria crawling instead of racing with our contemporaries.
            Is your corrupt Tinubu,Atiku or brutal old fundamentalist Islamist Buhari going to do any better ? You expect Jonathan to start throwing punches at Idriss Derby at the Airport abi ?
            YOUR APC ISLAMIC FANATICS WILL BE DEFEATED FAIR AND SQUARE…no need,the elections are around the corner so just wait !

            Phool like you. I doubt if you have ever lived beyond your creeks. You had the privilege of an internet service and youi have chosen to abuse it rather than utilize it as a learning tool. PDPigs and Jonathan have brainwashed you, hence the clamour for his return. Jonathan is coming back to meet you in the creek on the 29th of May, 2015.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Those creek have fed you for more than 5 decades….you beggarly ingrate !!

          • King Carlos

            Seriously? Feed who? You think I’m a Nigerian that expects amnesty money before I eat? Wrong spot bwoy!

            Go find work and stop waiting for illegal bunkering biz before you eat. Paddle your boat out of the creek and see life beyond the river. Your leaders like James Ibori, Lucky Igbinedion and now Goodluck Jonathan have mortgaged you people’s future. They have joined hands with people from other tribe to steal your ‘beloved resources’.

            If Jonathan is a true ijaw man, what has he done to reverse the suffering of his people in the creeks? He has been in power for 6yrs and the only lelegacy he has is enrinching criminals like Government Ekpemupolo Tompolo, Asari Dokubo and co. He awarded them billions of dollars un pipeline protection contracts.

            That money could have been used to build schools and enrol illiterates like you. Jonathan could have set up a world class hospital in the creeks. He didn’t do that and your leaders like Edwin Clark didn’t call his attention to that.

            Oga my advise to you is to drop that bottle of ogogoro and think about what you want in life. Are you happy seeing Asari and Tompolo as your leaders or you want to see people like Ken Saro Wiwa at the fore front?

            Think my guy.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            If Ken was good,where is he and what happened to him ? Asari is a great hero so is Tompolo and all the creek boys who confronted injustice .This stance and position is firm and unshakable even in the future…..until you learn to depend on your region…….poor beggar !!

You became friendly with the captain and bought into his heart as you were always on hand to supply him gbana. You are operating under so many alias and hiding your real identity.

  • Sharia_Haram

    .Islam, Sharia and Muslims should be held responsible for the suicide bombing and the senseless killing of non-Muslims. Not until we start seeing revenge as an act of defense, Muslims will continue to kill non-Muslims.

    Again, my advice is to divide Nigeria along religious line. I will really love to leave in a Country like Angola where Islam is Haram. Muslims are forbidding in Angola. Just about 90-100 thousand Muslims resides in Angola with close monitoring. Angola is relatively peaceful because ISLAM is not allowed to thrive. I forbid anything ISLAM(terror).

        Well done!

  • GEJ indirectly killed this innocent people by insinuating in London that because Boko had not captured a new town in a week, he was indirectly winning the war. We did raise this point then and easily predicted the fact that GEJ was inviting a response from Boko. Could somebody there help seal this mouth to avoid future deaths.
    During the Sharia riots, Obj kept quiet and allowed them to practice their religion in a federation.Baba held on to his conviction until my Kentucky State University visit to Professor Omatseye, who then introduced me to a high placed Ghanian Judge. The Judge educated me that Baba Obj was operating at a higher pedestal
    than us.To him Sharia was very ideal and would
    help resolve a lot of political and criminal issues in the polity if properly harnessed.Baba knew it was political with the Zamfara Governor then spearheading the campaign.Baba knew that the average Northern muslim likes enjoyment to the fullest, ask Alhaji Dangote.It took Baba a little to
    expose the lies of the Fulani North for the riots to die naturally. Baba used the state secret services to monitor, blackmail with a view to exposing the
    Zamfara Governor’s penchant for carrying
    teenagers every weekend to Abuja.
    To be fair to GEJ, the Fulani North has not been fair to Nigerians.They are always playing one tribe against the other without necessarily improving the well being of their people and Nigerians in general.Today the Yorubas are in their kitty after usong the South South in the past against the Igbos and the Yorubas while oppressing other tribes and Christians in the North.
    Jonathan deserves all the shit he is getting because of the pole position that he placed Diezani, corruption and the stealing of USD$20billion. The average Nigerian Southerner is saying today that another 4years might mean thr Madam moving CBN to Bayelsa.A minister thst has changed NNPC MD 5times can do anything and get away with it.
    Buhari as a Presidential candidate along with Fashola will save this nation because Buhari is not thevtypical Hausa Fulani man.He isbeven avthreat to his tribe because of his independence of thought.

    And he’s waiting for another chance to win election before he frees the citizen of nigeria.

      I know you are an opposition media and that you have a definite agenda to serve the interest of your masters in APC. I have noticed that you turn blind eyes always to all the unsavoury remarks on the president of your country just because your preferred party is in opposition. You just blocked my comment some minutes ago, which is a reply to the above comment by @favourtalk. This your style is really not going to help. You know in your heart of hearts that your organisation is aiding to tarnish the image of your country when you recruit miscreants to perpetrate a slur on the president while you block those who give in their sincere contributions to correct such misgivings. May God help you to achieve your aim but bear in mind that God never rewards evil.

    If Jonathan is not performing then he MUST be replaced by a South South President bcos we (SS) will NEVER accept anybody from North or West too. From Benin to Warri to Brass to Patani, Bonny, Calabar, Eket up to Ogoja, with over 50m peoples, you should find someone. End of Discussion!!!

    Hijab wearing bombers are all over the country. Hijab is a component of sharia. You wanted it, Buhari urged all Muslim to continue to fight for full implementation of sharia. Now you got it. Innoccent people looking for daily bread were killed. I would say how has hijab wearing enhanced your security? Be careful of what you pray for. Boko haram killed both Muslim and Christian alike. How come Muslim still believe boko haram is for north. Buhari says killing of boko haram is anti north. Be the judge.

        Rotimi Ameachi- Stop hiding under the name Wähala. You are so much of a coward and I know this paranoia of yours will send you to political oblivion like Timi Sylva. You run your mouth foolishly on every issue whether it concerns you or not. Let me borrow you a kobo from the rule of thumb about power. ‘Never try to outshine your master’. If you do that, you will definitely fall. Atiku did that: he fell. Timi sylva did that; he fell. The list is endless. David was face d with difficult situation with King saul in the bible, but he did not try to outshine his master. he eventually became king. So what is your problem. Just imagine a local govt chairman insult you the way you insult the president at will. You can even imagine yoursellf as president and Jonathan as a governor insulting you like that. What would you have done. Jonathan is a weak president but he deserves some respect. The people(APC) you are following have a different motive for change. You want good governance but they want power by all means. Fulanis/muslims dont think the way you think. What I hear recently is that MURIC(muslims) are angry that Arabic incription was removed from the 100 naira note. They are now planning to push for the Buhari/Kwankwaso ticket. Buhari will rule for 8 yeras and hand over to Kwankwaso. Kwankwaso will hand over to Tambuwal. This is the plan and it is real. Be wise.
