      Olivia, 1st of all GEJ mother tongue is Ogbia language, y don’t you tell obama to learn and speak ogbia language let’s see the same poise? 2ndly GEJ is campaigning for his re-election and that process involved the Nollywood, do you know Obama’s campaign was all over the world? not only restricted to united states, so what will u say abt that? do you know Obama spends time with NBA stars and NFL stars? the point is most Nigerians are so dum that’s y they can open their eyes and want to vote for who does not have ordinary 1st school leaving certificate

      I’m sorry but English is supposed to be our first language, so there is no excuse for GEJ to speak it badly, otherwise he should speak in Ogbia and get a translator. Secondly if you were so much smarter than Nigerian, you will know it is spelt “dumb” and not “dum”. I just can’t deal with brainless people criticising others.

    The former military ruler is taking his fourth shot at the presidency since democracy was restored in 1999, and has tried to position himself as Nigeria’s top anti-corruption crusader.

    Buhari, 72, insists he will win this time, refusing to even discuss the prospect of another defeat.

    If Jonathan is declared the winner, Buhari’s actions could prove crucial in avoiding widespread post-election unrest.

    Experts say the predominantly Muslim north is a tinderbox that may explode if Buhari, the region’s favourite son, is perceived as having been cheated out of an electoral win.

    Buhari’s moves as the results come in will therefore be closely watched.

    The whole world is tensed and concerned for Nigeria because of one man,one man whose name is Buhari.

    Buhari is a man with violent antecedents. I urge Nigeria to reject Buhari and all he stands for.

    People chanting,killing ,roasting fellow humans alive, charring human bodies,tearing bill boards,burning vehicles,pouring water on streets to wash off Jonathan foot prints while chanting sai baba,sai buhari.

    Has people of North East ever ever voted a Southerner? Didn’t Southerners vote Musa Yaradua?

    We supported Umaru Yaradua a man whose name is not synonymous with violence but have chosen not to vote Buhari. A man of do or die politics

    I Pledge peace. One Nation,One Nigeria,One goal,One Success Peace.

      you are not a true Nigerian, stop promoting hate. It’s not your business who the next person votes for. All you should be worried about is who you vote for and ensuring your vote counts for something. At the end of this election, the nation won’t be called, Northern or Southern Nigeria, it will still remain, one nation, Nigeria.

    When the deadliest civil WAR breaks out all of us ranting here APC and PDP note that the elites you are fighting for on social media will survive with their families but you and i will be refugees in Benin Republic and other countries if we survive it,and they will still sit at a peace accord meeting somewhere in Ghana ,South Africa or the U.N to still decide your fate and fly back their families with their private jets to continue using those who survived,if i may ask where are their children? they are all abroad in safe keeping,Nigerian youths listen and listen good,we have only one Nigeria,what the RADIO did to Rwanda is what SOCIAL MEDIA IS DOING TO NIGERIA NOW,the worst CIVIL WAR IN THE HISTORY OF AFRICA AND MANKIND IS IMMINENT,we are all pushing NIGERIA TO WAR,there will be no winners or losers,Nigeria ,you and i will lose atlast,the U.S/ the West promised SYRIA and LIBYA better life where they would be free from dictators and corrupt leadership, today you can see how free these countries are,Iraq inclusive after Sadam,Americans are safe in their country happy and laughing over the suffering they have caused using divisive propaganda to destroy them,Nigerians be warned a great WAR is at hand all of us here might not be alive to tell the story but i bet you ,all the elites and their children will be alive to tell the story.You and i don’t own oil wells and private jets,then what are we fighting for.They want you to be counted as casualties so there would be a case .Please say no to violence if GEJ wins he wont feed his village if Buhari wins he wont feed his village,and nothing will change ,there is no time a govt will solve all your problems.There are more beggars and homeless people in the U.S than Nigeria even in Obamas backyard in Chicago homeless people queue up for food hand outs daily.STOP PUSHING NIGERIA TO WAR WITH SO MUCH HATE ON SOCIAL MEDIA BE WARNED OF WHAT THE RADIO DID TO RWANDA.

    Chai my Nigeria is now like a little child that other adults have to tell NOT to pee in their shokoto because they will NOT get a cookie if they do!

    Our leaders have to be cajoled to sign “peace accord” and begged NOT to cause mayhem in their country because it will be bad for the people???? Our “dear leaders” have sunk the image of this country so low because of their ignorance and desire for power.

    We need to snap out of this childishness kia, kia!!! because it’s NOT befitting of any nation that calls itself OR sees it’s self as the “Giant of Africa”!.

    Peace is a word that is very easily forgotten when men and women do everything within their power to have their own way….But Peace is what these men and women start to search for after they have destroyed all the hope they would have built upon. We have a country that still runs its affairs without the U.N deciding for it. Let’s not take it to a place where it would now require external dictatorship. The time has come when Nigerians of all ethnic group should be blind to the Tribe, State, Gender, Class of their neighbor and proceed to doing what is right. Tribal Blindness People, that’s what will save this country and I am a Tribal Blind individual. A good person is a good person to me be he, Igala, Edo or Yoruba while a bad person is a bad person whether she is Igbo, Hausa or Efik.
