    I think it is high time all aspirants are also kept in a house for 3 months kinda like big brother, but, without the shower hour and all the other weird stuffs. Just people in a house and citizens testing their mental capabilities, social skills and initiatives so we can weed out the nonentities… Nigerians have suffered enough.

      See list of people that have indicated interest in running including Atiku at least 10 of them there are better than PMB… my dear this race is not only about PMB or Atiku… so don’t start with or Atiku or PMB we are not doing that style this election.
      My prayer is that there is a coalition of most of these people.
