    Hey fake transformation president taking a sprint to the finish line on March 28. Now, he is making last minute compensation to south west for votes. Wont work, you are going down with a landslide defeat. Whether or not you win, you are still going to Hague/ICC.

      He is inept so he cannt do anythhing right. Its too late for him to do his real job at the last minutes. So stop whining and take the critisism like an adult.

    @ madam Mabel…….what do you know about Hague , what did jonathan do to be invited to icc in Hague, you just think Hague is for all former african president, general buhari that incited his fellow Muslims to kill youth corpers has not gone to Hague ….I don’t understand how many of you youths reason at all….you guys just flow with anything that is trending, whether its good or bad u follow….since the people packaging General Buhari did that nice photo shoot for him in November giving that young boy a hi5, and photo with iPad, many youths have been confused on what change really is……

    Who is offering change, general buhari served under abacha government, he silently kept quiet under abacha brutal government, do u know how many people that were assassinated under that government, if you can’t remember let me remind u pa Alfred rewane, Ken saro wiwa, etc ….please tell him anyone that GEJ or is government has killed to warrant him been invited to Hague …..

    The problem with our generation is that we are too lazy to read or research, and we forget things too easily… wondering that all this people saying buhari is a very good leader today, did they not know he was a good candidate in 2003, 2007, 2011, why didn’t they vote for him, or was it that before 2011 there was not corruption in Nigeria , please let not allow all this politicians to deceive us what there own personal interest..both the pdp and apc are the same thing…please examine the character u want to vote for, no party in Nigeria is known for any particular ideology …..that is the only thing that should different the political party

    All this so called unrealistic promises apc making today, I believe they should have started it in Lagos, so we see that they can do it in a small capacity first,…

    @ Olawale as an international law graduate I’m pretty sure I know enough about the Hague and the international criminal court. Now if you calm your frayed nerves, you will observe that I was merely quoting a fellow commenter who made that comment. I wrote that to make the said commenter understand that it doesn’t work that way. That was the reason I wrote yeah right and etc. Next time read and assimilate.

    @olawale, you have spoken well (in pete edochie’s voice)
    but………may i remind you that Nigerians had faith in GEJ, we belived him because he came across as humble and sincere, we backed him up and he got a resounding vote.
    but, we are disappointed and tired of man who is cunning and obviously a snake in sheep clothing, GEJ goes about looking innocent like he has no idea what is going on in a country whr he is the no1 man.
    i believe most people voting for APC do not like Buhari but or believe their unrealistic promises (as you call it) but, its either him or GEJ and like i earlier mentioned we are tired of GEJ’s cunniness.
    i honestly wish, APC presented another candidate, but it is what it is.
    again, pls do not fail to acknowledge that Nigerians are getting bolder by the year, and i honestly beleive that very soon we will have the best leader.
    Come 28th, May the best man win.
    God bless Nigeria.
