      @polypoly ,misplaced priority!
      So its an achievement for Buhari to be junketing around the world and you are cheering? sad!
      We succeeded in voting a Western mole and the slowest democratic leader.
      Keep clapping for a sole administrator of the Republic of Nigeria called Buhari.

    Glad and I like this strategic move cuz the gist is that all these countries usa and europe have pledged to seize those looters money abroad and return to Buharis adminstration. So, those moron looters thinking that they are getting away are in for a rude awakening, not only is the money going to return to Nigeria, these countries plan on charging and jailing them for embezzlement. PPL think Buhari is not moving fast enough, shocker awaits the naive ppl cuz this man is meticulous and methodology in his governance.

      What about the Caymen Islands? You are extremely naive, if you think looters keep all their funds in U.S. And Europe. There is UAE, Russia, and China! Please keep cooling yourself. What do you think ISIS is successful in moving their funds from oil sales? Jokers!

    The U.S only care about their interest. They are fracking their freaking oil. You are child! They don’t need our oil. So why will they bother about looters’ funds. Obama and his government are just making noise. His is not doing crap!
