      Na small remain make Amaechi run mad. The film has just started. All the media wash wash will not conceal it. Those of us from Rivers State know Amaechi is a disaster waiting to happen.

      How do expect him to sit and celebrate with the likes of Wike ? when Wike is hell bent on watering the seed of discord sown by that illiterate lousy market woman, Patience Jonathan.
      I wonder why Wike and Rivers State PDP can’t act maturely and stop the political witch hunting of their opponents. Politic should not be a do or die affairs.
      For me, I will rather be at a place where I am celebrated than hardly tolerated.

      Girl don’t mind them, Nigerians have lost it that’s if that ever had it. The boy looks like a typical Hausa boy..
      Well Nigerias’ notion of change is to hang up your military gear and wear your agbada and cap then you become the change they want that will move mountains. Like someone said, it’s just a recycle and return of the same principalities and powers so throw those promises out the window.

      Hey, I remember you from a pervious post, like minds think alike. lol..

    The new age of Dictatorship of Abokis and their children. It is well! See how their children especially that chick next to Yusuf Buhari is pouting. I bet you she is hopping that her name will be trending on twitter next as the most beautiful girl in the country. Dey dere they pout. Plus the guy in the other pic really angling face in the hoping to unseat Yusuf as the hottest guy in town. Keep raising face to the camera there

      The likes of Sen. Ngige, Gov Okorocha , Pat Utomi etc should be there are well.

    • ED

      June 1, 2015 at 11:14 am

      @Jik, it never ceases to amaze whenever I read comments like yours. Think collectively? What does that even mean? Does it mean that the sole political purpose of any major ethnic group in Nigeria is to make sure they are in bed with any political party that comes into power in Nigeria? If that’s the case, then they’ll be no opposition! Do you know the implementation of that for any ‘credible’ democracy? Even if an ethnic group is well represented in a government, how does it really benefit it’s homeland in present day Nigeria? That is apart from bragging rights online and in bars/beer palours, how do impoverished people on ground benefit? These people go into power and proceed to enrich themselves, family, relatives, random girlfriends, and if lucky, people from the same hometown. Now, how does that benefit you personally or Nigerians? These people encourage you to think this way to their own selfish advantage. As far as I know, it is the state governments who have actually brought development and alleviation within the reach of impoverished masses.

      I’m very proud that Nigeria has a credible opposition and not the laughable one party scenario we had in 1999. I reject, with the power of the holy spirit, any attempt to draw any remaining PDP law makers into APC be it by defection or alignment.

    My oh, my oh my! All you GEJites should get over this bitterness already. At least, even if you don’t like the new administration, there’s nothing you can do about it.
    GEJ has moved on and he’s celebrated but mba, his supporters still think hating will help matters. I’ll advise you to remain indifferent.
    And the Yusuf Buhari haters should just go and sleep. It’s not like the guy begged for the attention. He started trending courtesy of social media. Abi is it now a crime for your picture to be taken at the airport. He didn’t do anything extra ordinary to get the attention.
    I’m not saying people shouldn’t criticize, but let it make sense at least. This especially goes to @m

    This DJ Cuppy girl is everywhere these day. She was gallivanting all over the world during the election and gave no damn about voting. But right now she is the among the first to celebrate with the winners. Typical of Nigerian Billionaires, aka friends of anybody in Government. Immediately Buhari won, Dangote and Otedola neglected their darling GEJ and were the first to celebrate, wine and dine with Buhari. . Anyway it is called a smart way of registering and protecting their interests. They have a big stake in the corporation called Nigeria.

    Oya everyone tighten ya belt oh. All the big Contracts will to to northerners alone. I’m not into politics neither do I support any political party because I know they are all the same. The only worry I have with northern politics is the inability to divide power to all tribes as they focus to much on their people forgetting that it’s nigeria as a whole they are serving. Same goes to easterners .westerners and southerners are very open mined. So when they are in power person no go too worry. But you never know

    It’s a pity hw hating has become a normal thing, if u like call it anything it is still HATE u need deliverance. we re expecting change from the government we also need to change from those negative spirit in form of opinions/comments and attitudes if not we’ll always be busy looking for negative things in the multitude of good things so we’ll not even notice that positive change. But seriously in this situation that Nigeria is now, someone’s concern is that power has shifted to the north, Buhari’s son bla bla blah, the inauguration dinner was just hausa people. Hello! That was presidential inauguration dinner,was Buhari suppose to go and carry the peole on his head and bring to the dinner, were doors close to some people not to attend because they’re not from the North or APC? When people were treking from lagos to ABJ , (that one no be true sha) if u like no waka come sit down there and be waiting. More over all the states were inaugurating same day so the crowd was divided. Afterwards north, South,West east will all regroup and waka come, in short by the end of this year sef all politicians will move to APC.

  31. nene+

    May 31, 2015 at 11:10 pm

    Just waiting to see the names that will work with Buhari.

    I also tot that by now they would have used mopol to force petrol sellers to sell and jail all the fuel attendants collecting 500 -1k from people buying in containers for generators.

    I tot kwuruption will stop magically and the fuel attendant will be in jail by now.

    Back to the world and reality isn’t it taking too long to start naming Buhari’s team and they are still running it by the jagaban? Just saying!

    As for Boko Haram they had better stopped as no amnesty will be granted. Mtcheeeew.

    Meanwhile four Boko haram attack since Friday and no magic done?

    Saver Buhari (not Saviour)your magic wand is urgently needed as you had time to prepare since March 28th when you won election. Delay is dangerous.

    Dismiss the gala night and all the well wishing as maiduguri is on fire!

    No time for pleasantries and heavy make ups I see here! No time to wait till Monday to act on people who died during the weekend.

    There is fire on the mountain run run run.

    Want to see Buhari address us from Maiduguri.

    I havnt asked for too much I just reminded you of your campaign promises.

    Asset declaration must be publishedooooo nothing will substitute it’s publication!

    June 1, 2015 at 2:49 am

    Otedola and Dangote are the most shameless men in Nigeria. They could not even pretend… Acting like desperados the way they always kiss the asses of presidents.
    Buhari will share Nigeria’s money amongst the Hausas and fulanis. As far as I’m concerned, he is there to serve his people. God help the rest of us.

    • Morolake

      June 1, 2015 at 12:59 pm

      I couldn’t agree more. You’re right on the money. The man is there to serve his people, the Hausas/Fulanis that is. The rest that think they are smart aka master strategist will keep kissing Aboki’s behind for all it’s worth.
