    Please sir, I know eradicating Boko Haram is a major concern for your government because it is also personal to you, being from the North. However, before you start junketing about please announce your cabinet. This suspense is too much. A lot of activities with bearing on the economy, which as you well know is in dire straits, are on hold because people want to know the calibre of people who will head key parastatals in your government. This is taking too damn long, with all due respect sir, because I admire you and voted for you not just in 2015 but in 2011 too so this isn’t coming from a place of malice. Please do the needful asap. Tenks sir.

    Really? like seriously? What is Buhari jetting out to Niger and Chad to do?

    Osibajo also jets to South Africa?

    To beg for assistance to fight boko haram? I laugh in my dialect

    Tot he said that Nigeria military need no assistance that GEJ condescended too low to ask other African countries for assistance? South African macenaries GMB and Osibajo mock Jonathan!!!!

    And now two changers have gone to beg for same??????

    Iye me!!!! so they too are stooping low hmmmmmmmm . People of the world!!!
    Dont criticize people for doing what you do or what you will do!

    Meanwhile how many more days do we have to wait before the ministers are announced.

    Since March they won elections they are still on back and forth on ministers?
    Tinubu list,Amechi list,OBJ list,Atiku list drama drama drama-Just like it took ages to produce Osibajo.

    The only action Buhari has taken is to quash all cases against Timpreye Silva the APC chieftain. Appointed two media advisers to do same job?
    The other APC governor somewhere in the North appointed a special assistance for TIME KEEPING????? Breaking the promise of cutting down govt expenditure???????

    Do gala night,Do thanksgiving,attend Jummat,pose for pictures and a Monday gone past without action? So much so that both president and vice president are oit of the country to beg for assistance?????? Is it Tinubu that is in-charge now?

    So much of the fight against corruption and people leaving above their means-while blind over 11 million Naira wife’s wrist piece.

    Not mean on Buhari but why demonize GEJ and PDP when you are guilty of the same??????

      LOOOOLL Nene save your strength ooh cause 4years is a long trip and I doubt you’ll keep up.
      #Just an advice from a concerned BN reader#
      Has it ever occurred to you that Nigerian land territory has been compromised and that those countries are also victims of Boko Haram attack? Mind you during campaign and after campaign Buhari has always stressed it that he will work with neighbouring countries to comb out BH boys.#Do your research#
      As for the First lady’s watch.. Did she use the Govt money? if Yes! any empirical evidence?If No! how then is it your concern and why are you so pained about it?
      Now I see why Lai Mohammed said PDP should come for lessons on how to play opposition cause clearly you all suck at it. Just desperate to prove no point.
      #Let me tell you a small secret: all these unnecessary and senseless attacks will only make majority of the Nigerians who voted for Buhari love him the more and despise PDP#

      @missy J, Ur response sucks. Buhari is a tired old man. He will soon realize that 2015 Nigeria is not 1983. Ode man that allowed himself to be used by Amaechi and Tinubu. Well, we are waiting for the fulfillment of his campaign promises. The deceit is about to unfold. Buhari will realize that he is just a seating duck. “I belong to everybody, I belong to no one” Lieeeeee ur sponsors will demand ROI. How do manage dat? Dis no be military regime when u ask the Gov’s to jump and they say how high? Now the Gov’s will ask you to go **** urself. After some time, l see dis old EPA sleeping on duty while the hyenas around him loot. He contested so many times you will expect him to be ready immediately he was sworn in & hit d ground running. But for where? It is beginning to dawn on him dat to be President of 2015 Nigeria no be beans. The messiah for Nigeria is yet to come. Certainly not this FRAUD.

      You see how APC supporters live and breathe propaganda!

      El rufai blasted GEJ for going to Chad and accused him of going to plan another attack there. GMB openly condemned GEJ for going to neighbouring countries for assistance, and said he reduced Nigeria. Now he’s doing same and you’re all coming out to rewrite the story! He promised to crush BH within 2months, 5 days in over 100 dead and he’s condemning. Same things GEJ was blasted for.

      His wife wears 34k wrist watch and we’re told to mind our business, yet he could not afford APC presidential nomination form and he claimed to have only 1.5m in his account. Did you know that GMBS wife was investigated alongside Atiku for diverting PTF funds? Go and read Objs book, vol 2. It’s right there. We don’t read, we eat and drink propaganda and vomit same!

      The same man who talked tough on corruption: his first act as president was to get EFCC to drop case against Sylva and Nyako is back in the country roaming free. He boasted that’d he’d publicly declare his assets; now story has entered. Stay here and be chasing propaganda while they continue to take us for a ride.

      This is just the beginning… get ready to continuously defend impunity for the next 4 years ie if the Internet isn’t shut down!

      Lool…Relax, 4years is a long time for you to start getting agitated from day 1. Let them do their work how they think fit, we are here watching, nobody is trying to fight the government we just want them to do what they were elected to do. Its not about you and your conclusions or theories you develop, its about an entire nation, so relax let them do their job, without undue attacks, this attitude is bad for progress.

    @Miss J ,lies where detected. Mrs Buhari has been serving politicians wives ,girl friends,concubines and cronies.etc.

    The wrist watch and her 135million donation was not from a beauty palour.

    The truth is there is nothing new on GMB approach.
    Its not different from GEJ approach period.
    GMB should at least set the ball rolling before jetting out. or peharbs find an Idiagbon in Osibajo and let the country pick up.
    I am tired jare. The ministerial list is overdue

      Buhari has always been an absentee head. He claims to be incorruptible and in trying to present as such he distances himself and refuse to get in the fray. Which was why he let Idiagbon (Bless his Soul) do the hard and dirty work while he took all the glory. Unfortunately, he cannot hide behind Osinbajo. To do so would mean ceding leadership to Tinubu. We all know the voice of OSinbajo is the voice of Tinubu. It will be interesting really to see what role/responsibilities Buhari will assign to OSinbajo.

      God forbid Buhari should go the way of Yar Adua, do you think the Hawks and Buhari mentors in the North will reharsh the doctrine of necessity? That should be interesting.

      Tinubu wanted to contest as President but the APC knew he was going to be a hard sell. To ensure victory, Buhari who had sworn never to contest was cajoled to do so. Tinubu once again asked to be VP. But once again he was turned down but given the concession of nominating the VP. How come Fashola that is so “loved” that has performed “miracles” in Lagos was not nominated?

      Like Warizdiz said, Buhari is a FRAUD.

      May God bless Nigeria becos the next four years will surely be interesting

      Well, this is food for thot. Share ur views and not ignorance.

    It is a Monday … What has Buhari done today?
    When is he going to read out the riot act? When is he going to appoint a Chief of Staff? When is he going to take control of governance? When is he going to summon a meeting of Permanent Secretaries? Does he have to wait for wednesdays? Does the law state that FEC must only meet on wednesdays? When is he going to physically take the army to Maiduguri? When is he going to set-up a commiittee to investigate the corruption and crass indiscipline inhibiting the Army’s fight against BokoHaram? When is he going to publicly print out his assets in the media amidst speculations that his wife is stupendously affluent? If he is not ready to work…kindly create an idiagbon out of Osinbajo and let people start seeing something serious.

    I understand that we as Nigerians have to be patient, but how can we be patient when all you have done since Friday is state dinner and thanksgiving? Annoyingly you publicly declared that you have declared your assets…is that the same thing as publicly declaring your assets or do you think we are daft?

    Sincerely, I know it is too early to get mad at Mr President, but we all know what Yar Adua did the first day he came into power, he reduced both fuel price and VAT and the citizens felt a huge reprieve instantly. There are certain things you must do to make the country know that it has a new president…

    I also think it is sad that Buhari rushed to appoint two people into the same office of media and publicity. What is the difference between Special Adviser and Senior Special Assistant. Even OBJ and YarAdua never that. Gej only did it when he became the most abused and needed an attack what is Buhari’s rush? What is the hierarchy?

    I have realised that PHCN and in fact, all civil servants nationwide (including Airport Customs Officials and EFCC agents) have suddenly become over efficient in their services… This is only because of the picture of Buhari which they have in mind. I am very scared of what may happen when they eventually realise that the “idiagbon” behind a “timid” Buhari, was laid to rest ages ago.

    If Buhari doesn’t act now, and show that he is a tiger ready to devour…i reserve further comments.

    Since PDP (so far the most corrupt, incompetent and lawless party) has no moral right to criticise Buhari, the Onus is on us now (as Buhari Supporters). If we keep silent, thinking uur job is to defend Buhari, our hard earned opportunity to refocus Nigeria will be lost…the future is in your hands.

    Signed: Buhari Supervisor

    Ps: Can somebody pls tell Buhari’s kids to pls stay out of limelight? These are serious times pls and we don’t want distractions…
    Unless they are trying to tell us that the era of “do you know who my father is?” is not over.

      I flew home to vote and l voted PDP. Not becos PDP was the best, but becos the APC does not hold any attraction for me. The PDP lost no worries. Elections are over and all well meaning Nigerians irrespective of party affiliations must stand up and be counted. It is not about SILLY support for Buhari or Jonathan. Buhari is now the President of Nigeria and he cannot hide.

      May Tunde Idiagbons Soul Rest in Peace.

    People need to borrow small sense now.

    Buhari and Osibanjo declared their assets. Now their declaration has to be validated before results are released, Validation will take more than 2 days I reckon. By law it says 30 days. So if after 30 days we no see anything, then you are free to complian. Till then please be quiet.

    I just hope those of you shouting “we will see” reside in other countries. If not, it is a bit silly to be waiting to see when you are directly affected by Government decisions. Jonathan is relaxing in his house, his overzealous supporters are cooking up silly stories day in and day out. The current PDP stock are embarrassing. We all hoped that PDP would wake up and be a worthwhile opposition, a party to keep the Government on their toes but look at what is happening. Monitoring wrist watch and an inability to discuss sound policy. It is a shame but thankfully, educated APC in house supporters will play the role of “opposition”. I feel so much shame for the Nigerian youth, look at what you all are arguing about? You can not put two and two together on why the President would travel to Chad and Niger? The VP is headed to SA, do you think our economy can bounce back without strategic alliances around the continent? Go and read, get off instagram and have conversations about strategic governance. You can thoroughly analyze Chris and Damilola’s pictures or Bruce Jenner’s sexuality but when it comes to Governance, all you do is throw around insults that expose your tribalistic leanings and lack of exposure. It is a shame.
