    Buhari is always and forever a huge scam! He got into Aso Rock by massive packaging and propaganda and he has been relying on same ever since. They went to package one yeye award from the backdoor. Very shameless and desperate lot!

    This is such a shame. A whole president being treated like this is wrong on so many levels. I am not a fun of Buhari, but I think its not fair to him to be awarded and then drag into it this. Not that this award does anything for his image in Nigeria or the Int’nal comminity.
