    Did he go there as a Tourist minister, Petroleum minister,President or what?

    This man must be overwhelmed with modern day leadership. Perhaps he tot presidency was about queuing at car park aka orderliness , execute thieves at bar beach etc. Unfortunately he is dealing with sabi sabi 170 million who know there economic right.
    Now he abandons Nigerians at fuel stations to Iran? Hahahahahahahhhahahaha change you sought, and you got.. He wants to discuss gas, has he stopped it’s flaring back home?

    Hassan Rouhani make una let us hear una conversationooooo. Hmmm mm I no fit shout.

      Honestly, that defines unintelligence for me – when a person can’t design a work process or flow that is feasible, when a person says in a big organization “i want to see every paper”, when a person can’t rest and delegate, i know i’m looking at a non-engineer (just to put it politely.) i get tired. Let him sha do his own and comot. God bless him.

    I’m yet to understand this world tour Buhari is on. What’s next? Going to space?
    All that money going into it, can you use it for something crucial at hand. The country is in a mess, people are suffering, waiting for their salaries, governors complaining it’s too much money when they are paying nothing really. I keep saying bella naija depicts the life of 2% Nigerians, average nigerian is suffering. Education, employment, healthcare, infrastructure, etc everything is broken.
    Address your country, the plans to build the economy, to make the country safer and hopeful. Buhari, your anti corruption, going after your rivals is not the only thing you were elected for. Don’t dump all your presidential duties in fashola. We need him to be the president one day, don’t use him up. I pray, for God’s wisdom, strength, and obama’s tenacity(in the midst of opposition) to make Nigeria better.
    Buhari, Sit your old mallam behind in your country and work on making it better.

      Obama’s tenacity? Girl abeg when talking about world leaders, don’t even mention that clueless man.

      I’m not talking about Osama, village geh. Looks like you are the clueless, actually very lost soul. Go read about Barack Obama, the current president of U.S. And yes, tenacity. If you follow politics which you obviously don’t, he has a nice temperment, diplomatic, tenacity especially when republicans bring their heat. Obama, will go down as one of the best world leaders.

  9. Whilst bombs and blood at home, flowers abroad.

    Who are exactly are the Iranian officials who met/welcomed him? The Iranian president is not in any of these photos. What is the rank of the Iranian officials who met this president (of a black African country) of Nigeria? Then we shall know just how “warm” the welcome is. The flower girl at the airport to meet him is clearly Nigerian and arranged by the Nigerian embassy there. The usual, normal custom, to give honor, is for a child who is an indigene of the host country to perform that country. But they couldn’t have an Iranian child/little girl perform that commonplace courtesy to a black African, president or not. Guessing the Nigerian embassy thus had to quickly step in.

    I wish our presidents and government officials, specifically the muslim ones, would wake up to the clod hard fact that these arabs (just like the West/USA/UK/Europe, China, India, Asia) are only interested in using us and our resources in whatever way will best serve their own interests, and only their own interests. It’s never about religious fraternity, democracy (for the West), human rights, whatever but always about power, territorial expansion, influence, oil, riches, resources. The arabs see black Africans as less than them, as slaves and descendants of slaves. They will play the religious fraternity card to the max as far as it suits them, even then, all the time, they still subtly, and sometimes not so subtly, disrespect and insult African rulers but yet, these will still fawn over and grovel and bend over backwards to them, especially since they believe they are all ‘brothers’.

      Tell them. So painful to see black Africans destroying themselves in the name of religious brotherhood. They fail to realize that these people don’t even see them as human equals.
      Every year, we gather the little money we have and spend it in the name of Hajj/ pilgrimage.
      When will Africans start reasoning?
      Now, in the name of Jihad, they destroy the little infrastructure they have, terrorize investors who are or planning to come to Africa.

      Sad, sad, sadddddddddd!!!!

  10. Flowers abroad whilst roses trampled on the ground and bombs and blood at home.

    November 23, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    In Paris, and at the gates of French embassies around the world, world leaders and ordinary citizens alike, can be seen with flowers in their hands, going to lay them at the sites where the terrorist attacks took place and lives were lost. The media is awash with photos of the French president going on various days at various times with various leaders to lay flowers, sometimes, not even bouquets but single long-stemmed roses in each of their hands. Up till today, this is still happening, even as he is busy vigorously pursuing strong collaboration with any and everybody, even Russia, that he can find to join with France to find and destroy every single person involved in the attacks on French soil against French citizens, French residents and guests and friends of France. The French aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaulle, was almost immediately deployed after the attacks and fighter planes/aircraft have been going to and from it dropping bomb after bomb on isis in Syria. Whilst doing all these, he also gave the order and French forces also, with US and Malian forces, jointly took on terrorists and hostage-takers just a week later in far away Mali in Africa.

    Contrast this with the photo of Buhari receiving his “welcome” at the airport in Iran.

    What does VP Osinbajo do?

    Is Kachikwu, is Fashola (Min. of Power) , or are Kachikwu and Osinbajo, or Fashola and Osinbajo not competent enough, or, even more competent to have gone?

    If Buhari must be Minister of something, should it be Petroleum? Why isn’t he Minister of Defence?

    134 killed, and Hollande stays in Paris and cancels plans to attend G20 summit of world leaders in Turkey. It takes place without him.

    21 killed and the Malian president hurriedly ends participation at regional summit in Chad (where he had been for less than 24 hours) and rushes back to Bamako.

    53 killed in Yola and Kano and Buhari goes to Iran.

    Cry the beloved country.

    And this is even more bizarre and inhumane with December, Buhari’s deadline which he gave by which boko haram would be destroyed and completely exterminated out of Nigeria, just a week away.

    It’s not so easy to wage the war on pages of newspapers anymore when he is now the one seating in the office he was waging the war against. It’s not so easy now when he now has to actually wage the war for real, against the real enemy.

    May GOD help us.

      You write beautifully. Funny, this is the first time I’m noticing you on these meme streets.

    LMAO….. Wait, why is it that when well-meaning Nigerians criticize Buhari for the slightest thing, the default answer of his supporters is to insult Jonathan? It’s gonna be seven months in office pretty soon, I am sure in these seven months the messiah has made some great changes to our lives that you can talk about when someone criticizes his born-to-ruleness. Please leave my uncle Jonah alone o, he is no longer your President.
