      This is a very powerful moment. We the people moved our country forward. We revolted against status quo and we stayed with it. We will from now on move forward because we have set a new standard for our country and our future. If Buhari doesn’t perform-yes I said it, even me, I will demand and we should demand another change. Never again shall we be taken for granted. No one person is bigger than our beloved country.
      My work is done:)

      I am extremely proud of Nigerians. You guys took action. Democracy is for the people, gives right to the citizens. This is just the beginning. If buhari fails at his job, in four years he will also be replaced. I pray, God will guide him and give him wisdom to lead the country in the right direction. Nigeria will grow as a whole. And this will be beginning of good leadership, no more corrupt military leadership or incompetent civilians

      My first reaction is pleasant surprise that the renowned PDP machine failed. But, I have a strong feeling that the Nigerian elite is simply replacing itself for self preservation. I doubt that the fundamental problems of Nigeria would change, maybe a bit of window dressing here and there to make the optics look good, but we have not killed the monster which is quite simply – Empire joined disparate groups together for profits, when Empire left an oppressive elite system replaced Empire. Buhari’s win has not killed the oppressive elite system that is out to take, take, take and loot. By the way that elite system is from all the major tribes especially the North that has deliberately kept its people poor and uneducated

      YOU HAVE NOT BEGAN TO FEAR, WAIT FOR FEAR. WHEN HAS DEMOCRACY CEASED TO BE ABOUT INDIVIDUAL CONVICTION? YOU AS A YORUBA PERSON HAS YOUR VICE PRESIDENT WAITING IN THE CORNER AND BCOS I DID NOT VOTE FOR YOUR PARTY YOU NOW FEAR ME. SINCE WHEN IN THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA HAVE WE VOTED IN THE SAME DIRECTION. YOU PEOPLE DEMONIZES ANYBODY THAT REFUSES TO BE RAILROADED IN THE SAME DIRECTION. HAIL NO. WE ARE NOT SUBSERVIENT AND WILL NEVER BE, NOT IN THIS LIVE AND NOT IN THE LIFE TO COME. WE ARE WHAT WE ARE AND WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

      March 31, 2015 at 7:01 pm

      How do you know the commenter is Yoruba? When did Yoruba become the opposite of Igbo? We are all one o. Face the person squarely.
      On to the matter. Congrats to GMB. I will not be disillusioned to think he will be a miracle worker. Progress won’t be made overnight. I really doubt how much change he will bring.
      A round applause for Jonathan. This is truly the first free and fair election conducted in Nigeria. Cos we all know how easy it is for a ruling party to rig the elections. Jonathan has lost. I hope he conducts himself with grace.
      On a lighter note, I have this image in my head of Mama Peace shouting ‘I am not going anywhere. Goodluck can go but I will still remain First Lady!’

      March 31, 2015 at 7:18 pm

      You are too silly for words. How does your ignorant ass know the person is Yoruba? Get a life and accept defeat instead of blaming Yorubas like you Biafra goons usually do. The person could be any of the many tribe in Naija. The people that liked your post are just as silly as you btw. Abeg take your bad luck away with your GOODLUCK and don’t kill my vibe. Today is a good day for Nigeria regardless of the winner. These elections are free and fair but obviously that went way over your head. Smh.

      We need to stop voting along ethnic and religious divides, rather vote individuals that can move us forward as a nation, this is a man who only takes 10% of the salary they pay him, how many people can do that? We were just so tired of Jona and peace and their sycophants. They ran this country aground. No clue whatsoever, just to steal and steal, then steal some more.. #change #saiBaBa #saiBuhari. #oneNigeria

      @Wowza, what’s with the “you Biafra Goons” ? That’s very disrespectful to the lives that were lost during the Biafra war. As a Canadian that had to research and write on African civil wars, I must say that when it comes to history, wars and subsequent consequences of those wars, Nigerians are the most ignorant in West Africa. Based on your utterances (you both), your ancestors most be rolling in their graves. And as for the person attacking Yorubas, (I believe it’s a large ethnic group in Nigeria) it’s absolutely childish to attack a whole ethnic group. I wish you guys will realize that other nationalities read these blogs and see the insults you pelt on each other… not exactly a good image. On a different note, congratulations on your new president!

    • NaSo

      March 31, 2015 at 6:51 pm

      Hey pls no careless talks here….lets face it the north and south west voted on sentiments too especially the north……..SW were in d middle, some substantial votes went to pdp but still due to Prof Yemi (whom I love) the votes went to buhari…. as for the SE to be frank no one really cares much for jonathan over there but Buhari represents a time and era that does not sit well with the easterners so to them GEJ is the lesser devil hence the votes…..Withstanding pls don’t critic people just because the votes didn’t go your way…we can never and will never have the same opinion that is the beauty of being human, we tend to think differently…Nigerians tend to do follow follow just because you wanted your candidate to win badly doesn’t mean you should lose your senses……

      I and my Family didn’t vote…shoot me, lol…but we silently hoped buhari would take it..as I love Mr Osibanjo …Congrats Sir! The true test begins

    • NagosBigBoi

      March 31, 2015 at 7:23 pm

      @NaSo, I take a piece from your comment that hits the nail on the head!

      “……..as for the SE to be frank no one really cares much for jonathan over there but Buhari represents a time and era that does not sit well with the easterners so to them GEJ is the lesser devil hence the votes…..”

      That is exactly what elections in a democracy are: who voter considers BETTER, not the BEST.
      Personally, I see no reason why the younger generation should hold on to the biases of their parents and grand-parents. We need to BREAK THE CHAIN.

    • Busola

      March 31, 2015 at 7:25 pm

      In 2011 the Yorubas supported GEJ. Was GaeJ’s VP a Yoruba man? This isn’t about tribe or religion. It is about our dear country Nigeria. If the president isn’t performing then he will be vored out.

    • NaSo

      March 31, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      @Nagobigboi…Thank you. I totally agree with you, that the younger generation needs to start breaking the chain then again its a complex issue. The government has not really done anything substantial in the east, they take but do nothing (e.g. Rivers and Oil) so most easterners just care about their daily bread and how to hustle for a living. All these election wahala is just a case of who they think is a lesser threat but with Amaechi and Okorocha as Buharis campaign sponsors maybe they can at least do one substantial project there……I am just glad to see how Nigerians were so passionate about the elections gives me hope for the future

    • Osan

      March 31, 2015 at 9:04 pm

      Congrats to GMB, but most importantly, congrats to Nigerians. As a people, we have begun to think beyond our selves. The thought of 1 political party ruling a country for 16 years unbroken, is not healthy for any democracy

      As someone from the South South, I remember talking to some people in Delta state, just before the 2011 elections, saying I don’t care where the next president comes from. As long as he provides electricity, security, water, jobs and all the basic necessities, for all of us, Igbo’s, Hausa’s, Yorubas, Efik, Edo, and more, this is what should matter!

      But I understand the concerns of the Igbos and to be fair to them it’s not unfounded. An Igbo man will vote for anybody but a hausa man, and it is traceable to the Biafran war, amongst other things.
      However, a new generation of Igbos- the younger generation-who did not witness the war will indeed vote a Hausa man, if they believe he’s capable. It’s just like apartheid in SA and racism in the USA, it may never die completely, but, it took a generation of white people who did not participate in slavery to vote America’s 1st black (half white) president.
      Let’s not forget, that Buhari got thousands of votes in the South east (that’s not to say, all such votes were from Igbos, as there are non-Igbos living in such places)

      With regards the Yoruba/Igbo mudslinging on this blog, I don’t think its called for. Just look around you and see how many Igbo’s and Yoruba’s inter- marry. I wish for more of that in our nation. (more inter-tribal marriages that is).

      Perhaps the Hausa man in the person of General Buhari needs to extend a good hand of fellowship to the Igbos to prove that we all are better together (like Scotland and the rest of the UK), who knows, he (Buhari) might just change their perspective.

      Besides, I am not Ibo/Igbo!

      God bless Nigeria!

      March 31, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      Hi @Busola so sorry if I you misinterpreted my statement . I agree with you that GEJs victory in 2011 was a landslide and supported by everyone. I totally agree and did not mean to cause any insult. A lot has changed since then but my analysis was based on the 2015 elections. The elections left people confused, between a man with a poor regime and a former military man. Who does the public prefer? Lets not forget that the East just do not like Buhari due to his past and the military rule (hope he can show them otherwise) and well the north has not forgiven Joanthan for his unlawful dismissal of Sanusi, so most people that were true to themselves knew the deciding votes were between NC and SW
      thats why i said “especially the North ……… SW were in the Middle”
      Look at the Margin in the north between APC and PDP
      Look at the Margin in the South between APC and PDP
      the votes in SW were not so high a margin between the two parties …they had a good race which means that the SW region were less sentimental but when it came to choosing GEJ poor regime or Buhari who had a history as a dictator, they gave Buhari a chance not only because everyone is absolutely tired of GEJ regime but he chose a Great and Strategic VP, Prof Yemi Osinbanjo (I am a huge fan) and seeing his good records as well as his church. my dear I would say Prof Yemi and the help of Tinubu won Buhari Some votes in the SW..
      I didn’t vote so no bias here just seeing it from my analysis. If it was a fresh candidate then I wouldn’t go this far but the elections were basically the case of choosing the better of two past leaders. Nigeria is so much better than recycling leaders but at least for now we made the right choice and can only hope that as a country we keep improving and being united. Just my opinion, you can refute it if you wish, No insults please lol… #iloveyouall #lovemycountry #loveNigeria

      March 31, 2015 at 7:54 pm

      The Yoruba tribe is foolish and bigoted. I know they voted for Buhari just because they think that GMB would die and Osinbande… Sorry Osiganjo would take over.. insha allah, you people are dreaming.

    • Blah blah

      March 31, 2015 at 8:16 pm

      Yoruba people just won’t win today. Ekiti voted PDP and people said its because of rice. The remaining Yoruba States voted APC and you are saying its because we hope GMB will die and Osinbajo will become president? This isn’t about Yorubas or Igbos or Hausas. It’s about Nigerians!! Nigerians have made a choice and it’s not PDP. I support neither party and would have voted KOWA if I got my PVC.
      There were at least 2 Igbo presidential candidates in the race. You guys didn’t vote for them. Why?! I actually really want to know why.

    • Ade

      March 31, 2015 at 8:20 pm

      Argungu,

      Please save your insults. I remember clearly, in 2011, GEJ won because the Yorubas voted for him. Was he Yoruba? NO. Was his VP/Running Mate Yoruba? No, It was Sambo! So before you start throwing words you know nothing about, check your facts! Please please, drop your tribalistic attitude, and keep your frustration to yourself.

      Oh the name you couldn’t spell, is OSINBAJO. Please get it right!

      Signed,
      A proud daughter of the Yoruba land

      If the yoruba tribe is foolish like you said, how are they able to connive with the north to chase Jona out. I am not Yoruba but when it comes to playing politics, nobody does it better than them. Remember that a yoruba turn a state party into a national phenomenon in two years (tinubu), a yoruba man brought PDP to the limelight and choose his own successor (Obasanjo). If we can’t beat them it is better to join them. They are not so bigoted that they did not want an Hausa president and a south south campaign manager (Ameachi). The reason why they are good is because they know when to relax and when to be aggressive.

    • Cici

      March 31, 2015 at 9:02 pm

      What has this got to do with Igbo people, tribalist? Remember, there Igbo people that were also tired of GEJ’s passivity who voted for Buhari.

    • Iris

      March 31, 2015 at 9:34 pm

      Why is it okay that the north voted overwhelmingly for Buhari but it isn’t okay that the east voted overwhelmingly for Jonathan? I’m not a fan of voting along tribal or religious lines but such things are not restricted to one region please. We know all of you. You pretend to be objective but your derision of easterners shines through.
      I have mixed feelings about this. I still don’t think Buhari is the answer but I’m glad the PDP tenure has been overturned. It’s about time these people learnt that citizens put them there to work. If you don’t work, you should be fired.

      April 1, 2015 at 2:53 pm

      What did Igbos do to u? Why do u just hate them so much? When the Igbos voted for Yar’adua in 2007, it was not an issue. When Yorubas voted for Jonathan in 2011, it was not an issue. Now Igbos voted for Jonathan, it is now an issue. The victory of Buhari is now seen as the defeat of the Igbos, even when Jona is not an Igbo man. Why do u so much hate the Igbos! Yet u belong to one church or Mosque. Stop being a hater! Yaters die young!

      Then you went ahead to now say “I stand by my comment that BN shudnt disrespect Inec by announcing the results”
      My thoughts – pls go hv dinner or something, you hv no argument. If you are educated, you wud know that the moment GEJ made that call to Buhari, there is no greater announcement than that. Move aside for intellectual peeps to comment biko. Girl bye!

    Nope, sorry, not celebrating until he starts doing! We celebrated jonathan, ddidn’t we? What was the outcome? I don’t know when yoy people will learn! Don’t celebrate a leader until he starts leading. Now that he’s in the seat, the true colors will show, and this could be either good or bad.

      I think people are celebrating the process, the outcome and the realization that this is a positive step for our country and not necessarily Buhari as a person. That said, I agree that we must reserve final judgement on GMB until we see how he performs.
      From where I am standing, these elections, and the concession call to his opponent may very well be GEJ’s biggest achievement as Nigerian president.

Brands should see this, entertainers cannot influence the populace. Simply deliver votes with no monetary conditions involved they couldn’t let alone deliver customers to you when money is involved. Buhari contested with no single song or series from these entertainers and he is..

    Bella Naija you shouldn’t be involved in this kind of situation. The time is 6:31pm as I write this and you are fully aware that INEC (Jega) is still waiting for Borno to read their own results. Even though it is evident that Buhari has won, Jega has NOT announced the winner. You have many readers across Nigeria and Like I said, you should not allow your forum to start avoidable violence in Nigeria. You should be careful, considering what happened in Abuja partly caused by unofficial announcements.

    In other news I can’t sit still. So excited that it looks pretty certain that Jonah and Mama Peace are on their way out of ASO ROCK!

We just had to wait for our turn it took 50! Plus years . The fact that our voice was heard and how PDP acted this morning. The true winner was clear. Jega you will live in history as one of the greatest man Nigerian has ever made. Run for president I will vote die. Celebrate Nigerians your time has come.

    @true talker no don’t be afraid. Igbo people are very loyal and direct people. If they will not vote for you there’s nothing you can do. If you check, since Gmb has been participating in elections, he has never won a state in the SE. Nothing has changed since then. Igbo people in the SE do not like him. You can’t force them to vote for him. It is not about Gej. If Gmb contest against his fellow northerner, they still will not vote for him. I love my people. Very direct and straight forward people. No apologies.

      April 1, 2015 at 3:26 am

      Eziokwu thank you very much for this comment. When I saw the margins coming in from the SE I shouted Igbo Kwezuonu. Also our inlaws in Akwa-Ibom, Delta and Cross Rivers did not mess about. At all.

      I don’t care if all of SE votes APC or PDP or XYZ as long as they vote the same way.
      Why? Because when they want to kill us in the North, they will kill us TOGETHER. When they want to insult us (like in some of the comments), they will insult us TOGETHER. Nobody will ask an Igbo person are you Rochas brother or sister or are you APC. So when it is time to vote why will we not vote TOGETHER? It is not tribalistic, it is self preservation. Federal politics will never divide us. The impostors that were promising to deliver took the money APC gave for us and made Ofe Egusi with Ejune and stock fish so nothing was remaining to buy votes.

      PDP loss will bring Ohaneze Ndigbo closer and lets not forget that the country’s wealth still comes from the Delta region so whether they like it or not they have to reason with them. I wish Buhari the best. If he is smart, he will reach across the divide and form his cabinet wisely (OBJ tried for that area sha). 4 years goes by very fast.

So it’s all good atleast for the sake of peace, remembering that the U.S. predicted Nigeria will divide in 2015. So congrats to the new president, I hope he delivers.

    As much as I am happy For Buhari, I am not one of those that would insult Good lucks regime… Whether we admit it or not and as ‘much as Nigerians feel stupid for putting him in power, Goodluck was truly the change we needed….not in the sense of fighting corruption, providing amenities etc…BUT due to his calm nature, we the citizens were able to see how far gone in corruption we were as a society, we had freewill on social media so we were able to read things and form opinions, the people got involved in these elections and they have spoken, although we are not there yet, for the first time i can say we experienced a glimpse of what it means to be in a democratic society.
    So i say he was the change that the Nigerian people needed to wake up from their slumber and fight for their rights and from here on, I believe that it it is better things to come… So Sir Goodluck while your regime was poor, I say weldone and wish you all the best in future……

That we as a country can have a free and fair election is a major milestone at least in my own life time. The truth is GEJ could easily have rigged this election just like many other African leaders are doing but he chose not to and for that i have a new found level of respect for him. I might not agree with many of his policies or actions but for this I have to say “Well done Mr. President (GEJ)” now hopefully he completes it by not pulling a “Babaginda” on us.

This shows people are not subjecting their future to sentiments no more . It’s high time we take ourselves serious so international countries can take us serious .

    For those claiming Jona his humble blah blah …. please they played their rigging games but God passed them and gave them humility

    As for APC i know you guys are not saints but please do all with brain and pity our future . Turn Nigeria into a country those of us in diaspora would be happy to come back to .

    Buhari do not start muslim – christian war , respect that Nigeria belongs to a different tribes and religions .

      They aren’t as important as Fayose who is a Governor. He will have to bow down to Buhari. I expect a court case instituted by Fayemi and Fayose will lose. He will be dumped a second time.

    As an indegene of this wonderful nation, I would like to wholeheartedly congratulate Gen Muhammad Buhari. I did not vote for him: I have never liked him for what he did to my family in 1983. However, there is nothing wrong with second chances and if we do not forgive, God will not forgive us. As of this moment, I declare support for General Buhari as my president despite our different political ideologies. Nigeria has spoken and it is Nigeria that matters so for my good and the good of my people, I wish Buhari the very best. Afterall, if he performs as a president, my family and I will benefit because our living conditions will improve. I would also like to thank Goodluck Jonathan for the six years he gave to serving this country. I’d like to think he did his best but its rather unfortunate, it obviously was not enough. May God bless and protect him in his future endeavours. Under General Buhari, may a stronger, safer and much better Nigeria emerge IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!!! I never thought I’d do this but…#SAIBUHARI!! May God protect and lead you, AMEN!!

    This is a proof that mentalities ARE CHANGING…
    This time is for Africa: European, Americans and even Asian countries will soon don”t have any chance to RULE on our dearest continent: AFRICANS KNOW HOW TO RISE AND SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!
    I am glad that I have lived 28 years to witness this moment…Praying for wisdom over the new President of the powerful country that is Nigeria! As for President GEJ, I salute you because it takes STRENGTH and COURAGE to leave the spotlights when the time has come, may God grants you a peaceful return to a more common life …And I cannot forget to pray for my hopeful Cameroon…You have just show us the way!!!!

    Ups to GEJ! He tried but his administration had to go,, The backwardness was becoming a thing and it had to stop clearly! I’m very proud of Nigeria really, democracy at its finest thus far.. My prayer is that GMB does alot for the country, obviously he’s not going to start dropping money in people’s accounts, but slowly and steadily, he gives Nigeria the change it anticipates. This a lesson to all future leaders, “DON’T THINK YOU OWN ANY POLITICAL SEAT, IF YOU DON’T ACT RIGHT, YOU GET CHANGED, YOUR OWN GOAL SHOULD BE TO WORK TO REMAIN, NOT WAIT TILL 6 WEEKS TO ELECTION TO “TRY” TO EFFECT CHANGE”!!! Peace to Nigeria

    Congratulations to the APC…

    while we go about celebrating the victory have we taken some time to consider that the APC is made up of the founding fathers of the PDP, the evil we think we flee from is the same we run to, I am not bashing Buhari but change does not come from a man, it doesn’t come from a government, it comes from within each and every one of US as Nigerians… who are we as a people… judging from the comments on this blog we can see how divided in tribalism and selfishness we are against ourselves….

    The grass always looks greener on the other side till we find ourselves there, I wasnt a fan of either from the beginning and even up till now… I wish GMB the best but I do not believe he can turn Nigeria around in 4 years… congratulations to GEJ for bowing down gracefully…

I thank God almighty for this day, I congratulate Jonathan for bowing out peacefully, because of this act we can dance and say we had a peaceful election, I RESPECT you. I congratulate Nigerians for voting, for standing their ground, for DECIDING, lastly I congratulate JEGA for delivering a free and fair election as promised, your NAME will never be forgotten. I pray for the souls of the corpers, soldiers, members of the public who lost their lives in the course of this election, they didn’t die in vain. I am pro Jonathan but I am HAPPY because I know that if CHANGE that is promised us is not delivered, we’ll do what we do best irrespective of who you are. #God Bless Nigeria# #GMB may 29th#

    The fact of the matter is that hatred is like the call of nature, that is how God created human beings. That is why you see a raw white man hates black man, this type of hate is called rasism . There is also tribal differences in the creation of God , the type of hate obtainable here is called tribalism. Hatred has medicine it is fear and respect for God . If you find yourself hating people because they are different from you naturally know that you are far away from God .Congrats APC…God bless Nigeria.

    Oh pleaze…to those who are saying you are proud of Nigerians or this is history, what is great or historical about it? Even thouh i am tired of Jonathan, i can assure you that the results were already out before Jega announced them today. All the votes i saw online were equal to those he announced and yet he says he is not aware they were leaked?

    There is nothing great or historical about political parties influencing electoral results. Truth is a lot of votes did not count. All the same as i said, im glad Jonathan is out at the end of the day. I am also looking forward to his crew packing their load eg them greedy minsiters and co.

  73. nene+

    March 31, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    Waooo I have cried all day!
    How I wish Buhari was in PDP!
    I am more comfortable with them!
    It’s only in PDP the voice of the masses is heard! Only in PDP a thief is known and identified! Stella Odua bought car and she was not shielded, Fayemi of APC bought bed 50,million and he was called a saint! Mbadinuju, Amechi and Atiku are called progressives.

    I protested against N5,000 bill and it was stopped.

    Also against MAULAG and GEJ reversed it.

    I have also seen a protest @ Lekki phase toll and they were tear gased and arrested.

    Federal Govt have also said remove Lekki -Ikoyi bridge toll fee but APC adamantly refused!

    My hatred for APC is the hardship they make people go thru. They are not democrats in their attitude and practice!

    I demand to see an Obama type I have seen in New York and had a warm hug and smile and carried my children and asked my husband about his job. I haven’t seen Buhari smile let alone…………. I was just praying for a younger gentle man in 2019. and not an old wrinkled leader as always seen in Africa and Asia. All these leaders who don’t pay school fees any more never realise what modern world has become.

    Someone whom i can relate to and not the way Fashola and Tinubu have dealt with Lagosian. He does very little and goes blowing their trumpet! No portable water in till today in Lagos. Every thing about them is bogus without evidence! The Govt is far out of reach of people

    I travelled to my state and roads of several kilometers are tarred to the farms for free.

    Yet I pay so much daily to go thru lekki toll.

    I wish Buhari well but he. Should please provide his certificates if he has one! It’s very important that our chief driver is educated and the world has become very competitive and wouldn’t want a leader without this basic understanding! I have dealt with uneducated fellows and believe you me they are the most graceless set of humans!

    Lastly Buhari has lot to do and pull out of APC cult and serve as a president, show tolerance, it beats me that Buhari couldn’t say Igbo Kwenu. Which Nigerian can’t say Ekaro or Na gwo de?

    Northerners voted Buhari not necessary SW and I think it is a bit difficult for minority which GEJ suffered! I hope that the SW will not demonise SE and SS for being resilient on GEJ. We wanted a new Nigeria and not our past leader who exhume the past. We felt we can support another Northerner and not Buhari. Since power must return to the North for now, we will wait.

    Hopefully BH will happily stop, hopefully APC should not employ Olorunibe Mamora, Amechi, Mbadinuju or a hungry professor as new INEC chairman! I dare APC to appoint Professor Chidi Odinkalu an Ibo man and let’s try democracy

    For now let me pretend like it is a dream until it’s glaring!
    Cheers guys!

    By the way they are toddlers.
    Cheers and hope to meet some of you some day!
    I wish Nigeria the very best and please PDP don’t loose it! Go and re strategies and bounce back. Nigeria is on its way to greatness! God bless Jonathan for birthing democracy in Nigeria.

      You think the majority of the people who won the elections for Buhari in the north believe in any change? You think my brothers in the SE won’t suffer for this? You think the Yoruba people won’t enjoy out of this gorvernment because of their so called loyalty? You think the SS won’t go back to her woes? You think the SS won’t suffer in this new regime? My dear please go back and be realistic, Tribalism is in the sole core of this nations existence, and I will continue to defend my own. I am no INFIDEL. NIGERIA WILL NEVER BE ONE, this elections clearly proved it.

    We Nigerians now know the the sweetness of performing our civic duty.

    We did it. We did not reward 16 years of stagnation, corruption, impunity, disregard and clueless-ness with another 4 years of the same.

    We did it.

    We’ve spoken loud and clear to all corners of our Republic that never again will we be taken for granted.

    Yes, we did it.

    For all those (individuals, political parties, civil organizations, etc) that think that the typical Nigerian is laid back, lacks intellectual curiosity, doesn’t care, doesn’t mind and compromised – we say this to you – NEVER AGAIN.

    We’ve found our voice. We now know our worth. We now know the sweetness of casting and securing our votes.

    Never again will we sit back and congratulate treasury looters and corrupt public officials.

    Never again will we sit back and tolerate incompetence, lack of will and clueless-ness.

    Never again will we tolerate greed among our elected and appointed officials as well as our so called elite.

    We’ve spoken.
    We’ll speak again.
    And we’ll keep speaking loud and clear.

    Never again. Change is here. It no longer business as usual.

    APC – you have our mandate – take note. You must deliver or risk our wrath.

    PDP – go back to the trenches and reassess your manifesto for Nigeria. Then come back in the future and maybe – just maybe, you may prove worthy of our sacred trust.

    Long live Nigeria. Long live our beloved Republic.

    Bellanaija, how market? loool with all the volunteer to be a GEJite and the tacky PDP wallpaper you guys switched to. I’m glad to have my favourite shade of red wallpaper back.
    I’m glad Nigerians were allowed to decide this time around as we did in 2011. And to all the tribalistic commenters, your bitterness towards the SouthWest is unnecessary because back in 2011, it was the SW that wholeheartedly supported GEJ. This isn’t about ‘brothership’ or religious sentiments. Afterall, PDP had substantial votes in the SW this 2015 elections. You can’t blame northerners as well for the massive support of the General because they are the ones who have borne the brunt of GEJ’s weak governance. They lost so much in GEJ’s administration that it is understandable they rushed to vote him out.
    For the love of country, please do not further divide Nigeria. And I also think its very ‘handfalling’ for BN to publish tribalistic comments.
    To those prophesying doom to the nation just so they’d have the last laugh, isn’t that a special type of folly.

    If they like like them hate the igbo, my dear it does not matter. Igbo people are too fresh biko. The bible says the sunrises in the east. Which means no matter what happens, my people are well taken care of by the master of the universe. See how the igbos survived even after going through a bloody crazy war o. The whole naija against one tribe yet we came out still clean and healthy. Nna, leave that thing. It can only be God. Some did not even see a pint of what a whole tribe saw, they are busy screaming. I have said it and will continue to say it, the north will continue to suffer. They will be in power but yet will suffer so much. The blood of the people you have killed has taken over your lands and you will always be killed by your own. You have sown it and so shall reap it.
