    Let me state the obvious, this obviously happened at the last Council of State meeting, so they’re not laughing while the bombs go off. That said, yes there should have been a press release condoling the victims of the recent bomb blasts, GEJ rarely did it, Buhari shouldn’t copy him.

    Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu………………those ones…………….slowly becoming liabilities.

      On the Femi Adesina and Shehu Garba bit; this thing of choosing journalists as spokesmen is crap. Get proven PR specialists.
      Femi Adesina looks lost and bereft of ideas, while Shehu thinks he is still on the campaign trail.

    Ibro is short for Ibrahim – Babandiga’s contemporaries and seniors in the military have been calling him that for years
