Buhari 2015 BN 3
The 2015 political season is going to be interesting!
Major political contenders are upping their PR game in anticipation of the general elections next year. Check out this photoshoot featuring Muhammadu Buhari.

    I so love this pictures! Buhari all the way!
    His credibility even speaks in pictures, he’s so cute in these variety of clothings so why won’t I want to flaunt him as my President.

    He looks very good, stylish and dapper. OUCH did a great job with the styling. I am just curious as to why it has taken him this long to try to re-brand his image especially through his dressing. All past campaigns he remained in his native Hausa garb. As fantastic as this new image is, it may still be too little too late. It is not by wearing outfits of different tribes Sir, unfortunately.

    In contrast, Atiku is a much more tribal all-rounder. He has wives from major tribes in the country, connects with the “yoots” effortlessly through his twitter handle. If only he is not still dogged by the smear of greedy corrupt person dating back to his days in Customs and when he was VP, I would actively campaign for him. In fact, I am a closet Atiku supporter and I was converted from observing his social media interactions. He is also very intelligent and on the pulse of what the upwardly mobile young electorate want to hear/see.

      I’m not sure why but i do not trust our generation, i fear we may be more deadly – also, i think we are half baked thanks to the poor education system those in power put in place, i mean it still baffles me that our parents who grew up in villages speak better english than some of us who went to expensive private school.
      I just pray teh right man gets into power, but if you ask me who, i will have no clue because they all look the same to me – and in a bad way

    • T.

      November 27, 2014 at 3:06 pm

      CK i agree with you about not trusting our generation- we’re indeed ‘half-baked’ and it’s not limited to the spoken English. Just take a look at our value system- this our ‘social media and fast life generation is more concerned with instagram likes, twitter followers, fast money and wearing designer items , we couldn’t care less about what’s going on in the day-to-day running of our country or even strive for change.All of us are guilty (including me). I have lost count of many ‘friends’ and peers who have told me point blank that if they get into power they would have their own share of the national cake and not feel guilty about it. So what makes us different then? NOTHING!!!

      I really doubt that we have the ability and capacity to lead at this time. Maybe in the next few years, we would.

      By the way, I’m not saying the old folks should keep ‘leading’ the country but if we don’t sit up and ‘chase’ them out, they would continue to be the only alternatives that we have and that is not good.

      Dear Bella Naijarians, I came across this link and to the best of my knowledge, it is credible. Please sign the petition, perhaps we can start from there.

      Taipan, the issue in Nigeria at the moment is not about whether a leader is young or old, we need a disciplined, selfless and honest leader. We need someone to clean up this corrupt system. Jonathan isn’t the man for the job if he’s not been able to do it in 7 years. Buhari is the alternative we need! I am young and I am happy to VOTE BUHARI. It’s the only way to secure the future of this country. Let’s be real and leave age talk.

      Unless U have a better candidate who is tested and trusted, please shut your yap. Today’s generation would actually do even worse than the current leadership, with the way we r soo materialistic and power-hungry. Leave Buhari alone. He is our best bet for a peaceful, self-sufficient and sustainable country.

    All of you shouting we need young men, did someone tie your legs or is anyone preventing you from running for office.
    @ Taipan, they are elected to “serve” not to “rule”. This is not a monarchy. If you were in primary school when Buhari was head of state, you should remember his government was extremely disciplined. You had to stand in queues every where, at the banks, post office etc. everyone, especially Civil servants were mandated to learn the national anthem and pledge. You couldn’t stand by the road and pee or throw rubbish out of your car window while driving. Nigerian universities were good and even had visiting lecturers and exchange students from abroad. Better still, we had a strong currency.

    • Taipan!

      November 27, 2014 at 10:22 am

      @Miss anonymous, did you say elected to “serve”? my dear if our leaders are actually serving us naija for dey like dubai. secondly we need just the basic amenities like good roads, healthcare, power etc, there are more innovating ideas and technologies now, unlike the old fashioned “war against indiscipline” and remember someone that have food in his stomach is naturally discipline.

    • Stanley Nwokocha

      November 27, 2014 at 11:36 am

      Good talk Taipan but you failed to realise that we can’t build something on nothing. Good infrastructure, a working educational system, technological advancement will not happen if those in power are corrupt, if there is no discipline. Discipline in public life will ensure that the common man ultimately gets the dividend of democracy. This is our CHANCE to effect the CHANGE, Taipan!

    • Stanley Nwokocha

      November 27, 2014 at 11:32 am

      That’s spot on! That discipline is what Nigeria desperately needs now. Discipline is an indispensable culture for any country that will be great.

  11. Sugar

    November 27, 2014 at 9:58 am

    Its not about his style revamp for me, its about the motive and plan they all have for us. Who truly and genuinely has the interest of Nigeria at heart is whom I pray wins. I’m yet to see a qualified aspirant.

    • Stanley Nwokocha

      November 27, 2014 at 11:29 am

      Sugar, please open your eyes and see! That’s the qualified candidate before you. He has no corruption record, he is selfless, he is a leader who has never stolen and will never steal, he loves humanity even though political opponents brand him as monster to mislead people like you and I. Let’s go for change at least for once. Even if this is a gamble, I’ll rather take a gamble with Buhari than Jonathan. Is anyone still in doubt about Jonathan with insecurity, rising corruption, youth unemployment, powerlessness and our prostrate economy?

    • NagosBigBoi

      November 27, 2014 at 12:35 pm

      Let us not say “he has no corruption record”. I like him a lot better than Atiku (I pity nigeria if Atiku ever becomes president) but there are still unanswered questions about money that was missing from NNPC’s Midland(?) bank account when he was petroleum minister. I do not recall that he has ever adequately addressed that issue. Someone please correct me if I missed his addressing the issue. I point every politician to how Sanusi addressed questions of corruption/wrong doing during his tenure at CBN – documented evidence put out in the public sphere.

      what are you even talking about? Buhari’s govt has been one of the most corrupt free since 1979…. we just say things blindly… I will take Buhari over GEJ but not over a fashola or Duke. but until those guys come to the center even if Buhari is 100yrs old i will vote him over GEJ anytime

    We Nigerians and our wash wash, plastic mentality.
    A man buys new cloths, takes pictures and he suddenly becomes the miracle worker. I lean to no political party but I still remember that a lot of PDP big shots decamped to APC a few months ago . I bet they didn’t suddenly repent upon that exodus. The same politicians and other old members of the APC, who are part of the old order, are all the political friends Gen. Buhari has now. A number of them are working hard to see him sworn in as the president on 29th May 2015.
    Let’s imagine for a moment he wins. Does anyone think the so-called incorruptible General will ignore those decadent politicians and resurrect all the Saints to help him turn Nigeria into Eldorado? Superstory!
    If the democratic government we had from 1979 was left to endure we would have had stronger institutions by now. And If the man who killed that government in 1983 wants to be a beneficiary of democracy now, he would do more than being an overnight natty dresser to convince me.
    GEJ may not not be the Messiah but it appears he is still the lesser evil. All the opposition do is criticise. Elections are few weeks away but all I see are pictures, criticisms and warnings of how all hell will break loose if they lose or are outrigged.

      Lesser evil that is feeding himself with 1billion naira. Lesser evil buying stove wey den no send am for 9billion naira. Lesser evil that boko haram has almost run out of the north. Lesser evil that released boko haram sympathizer. Lesser evil that has more Nigerian’s committing suicide out of frustration from. Poverty and lack of jobs. Lesser evil that has resulted in numerous strikes. Lesser evil that will rather spend 9billion on stove than on education or health care. Lesser evil that has billions of dollars of security vote but boko haram is still flexing. Lesser evil in which thousands of Nigerians have died during his presidency but still nothing tangible is being done. Matter of fact the soldiers are even committing suicide missions in the name of fighting boko haram because of lack of weapons. Lesser evil that is intimidating all opponents and arming criminals from other regions to disrupt the political climate for political gain. Lesser evil that disrupts the rule of law and even uses the security agencies like the sss and police to attack and intimidate others. Lesser evil that uses criminals like the militants as personal security to guard our borders. We are still looking for the $20billion dollars that is still unaccounted for. Or the wealth accumulated during his presidency yet we are running a 10trillion dollar deficit. Wealth that is more than all previous administrations combined. Is this lesser evil you are talking about not the same as the person that succeeded in ruining the economy to where the naira is 180 to a dollar? No matter what you are chopping to come and get the mind to spew this crap, biko Nigeria has moved past all this rubbish and you will know the truth by 2015. Lesser evil ko, lesser evil ni

    He looks wrong in the suit, or the suit looks wrong by itself. Looks nice in the traditional outfits – all of them. I can’t see myself voting for him as President sha o. Governor maybe, let’s see what he can do with a state. I believe he doesn’t know what’s up with modern management or development, at all, I believe he doesn’t have policy answers at all. Basically, appalling as a candidate for a MASSIVE and developing nation. But hey, whatever.
