    Can this old man not just die already for goodness sake! I cannot believe he had the guts to contests elections AGAIN after such failure and spending half the time in hospital. Shameless in its highest epitome. BN last warning for you- not sure if you are testing this your new blog style, but it doesn’t work and your blog is going to suffer. So be a smart business person and keep your blog simple and competitive. How come you never even did a post to warn people of the “upgrade” (more of downgrade to me tho). During such a pivotal time as Nigerias election- I kept refreshing my page and googling to make sure I had the correct address. Only after days to realize that it was actually an upgrade. I’m taking the time to do this post bcoz you are an nwa-afo and I genuinely don’t want your business to suffer. The thing is all over the place and no one knows what is latest news and what is not. It is disorderly and disorganized. Pls take note and do something. xx

    Thank you, Jesus. I know he’s Muslim, but I prefer this man over the other candidates, let him continue. I find no terrible fault with him.
