    Saddened?! It’s not a time to be saddened, it’s a time to ACT, to get this thorn out of our flesh as a country…

    I keep asking myself if there is a sitting president in Nigeria. All he knows how to do is condemn the act and set up committee. Seriously Jonah? He let the dogs out for too long. I watched how an innocent man was telling Channels TV how he managed to escape and i wept! See burnt cars n bodies everywhere…jeez! All they know how to do is mount road blocks leading to federal parastatals and establishments. The masses nkor? And the fools that call themselves boko haram, only God knows their agenda. If you want to fight government attack Aso Rock and leave innocent citizens alone. Na God go kill dem n their sponsors one by one. The military should raid the entire north or better still make the country divide. The North should stick to their groundnut oil while the south stick to their crude oil. Gaskiya!

    Good luck you’ve failed us as a leader and a President.
    How many times are you saddened by the same notorious killings of innocent people?
    Getting sad is one thing, acting on it, is a whole different ball game.

    Rather than spending that huge amount of money on your daughter’s wedding, president; could you please spend that on keeping Nigeria/Nigerians SAFE! Guest don’t need to go home with custom made iphones while millions of citizens are suffering.

      +1. And BN posting pictures of the girls wedding as though it should makes us forget what a terrible president he has been. He doesn’t care about Nigerians or Nigeria. He just wants to line his coffers while president. Kai after 50+ years of independence we still can’t get it right. 270 people!!! How can the government allow (yes allow, I know they know who the perpetrators are) these people to keep killing us? Its because it keeps us distracted from the nonsense they are doing and the money they are stealing. As sad as it may be…in the recent months with all this news, it makes me wish the British never left. Our grandmothers and grandfathers became martyrs for our independence and look what we have done with it. Shame on you Boko Haram and shame on Jonathan and all his “yes man”. What will you say come judgement day?

      Your comment needs a “like” button. I worry that he still doesn’t understand the gravity of the situation.

    Typical Nigeria, medicine after death. He is tightening security? Is he nt supposed to hv tightened security in all states. Truth is our president is weak! His enemies knw dis and they are doing everything possible to frustrate his government, forgetting d sanity of Human lives. God wil definitely punish each and everyone involved in this barbaric act. May their souls RIP!

    THIS IS THE PROBLEM!!!

    A président so disconnected from reality that he communicates ‘his condolences’ via twitter through a man of questionable character he’s calling g his spokesman???

    He was SUPPOSED to foresee an impending attack in Abuja after all this time through his security advisers. Take abus ride from wuse to beger busstop and you’ll understand how easy it would be to commit this atrocity 10x over, much less once. The only secured places are government offices. What about the rest of us? Apparently we don’t matter if we can’t steam money bug enough to count

    Will this man ever take action? The next thing he will set up a committee to look into it. You saw this coming and did nothing, death rate has increased since you became president and all u do is set up committees. May God help us all

    President is Sad? Who cares!!!! hope that moppet called The spokes man understands that someday, it will be his relation who will be Bombed. i am Pissed, and Commenting here wont solve anything :(, so i have lost strength even on commenting on Fola’s life changing articles. How many more have to die ? how much more innocent Blood needs to be shed? Dear Jonathan, if you cant keep up with the Heat, Get Out of the Kitchen. SMH!.

    No jobs for young graduates but they are busy sharing gold plated phones..Sheer wickedness..After all, they will say ,they are not the originator of this crisis..A government that is never ready to accept responsibilities and own up to their mistakes..Always ready to pass blame…I just tire..

    i’m not sure why he’s sad. didn’t more than 200 people just get killed in another state. Abi their lives are not as valuable as Abuja lives.
