      They are all the same people. But Buhari is a very dangerous man, never again should Nigerians vote a northerner. Their religion first before the nation. They are dogmatic and fanatics. 6000 nigerians slaughtered and he’s still rackling the brain. That’s more scary.

    Anybody that votes PDP or APC does not want the progress of this country. Aren’t there other parties instead of recycling…

    Joker Obasanjo! You didn’t know Buhari was bad news when you supported him against Jonathan. And now, you think you can defeat him. Hahaha, Buhari is not Jonathan. Ekiti should be an inkling.
