    What is important now is for Buhari to step up in this 4 years, at least leave a good legacy and name for yourself sai Buhari! Leave nepotism and all the vendetta politics rubbish at the door and show empathy to the people you have been called to serve! The criminals are still there, APC & PDP are all one and the same so no need for long grammar, its simply just time for them to do good for and by Nigerians! The youngins can use the next 4 years to come together and start building themselves back up, grassroots politics is soooo essential in Nigeria and this time should be used to start sensitizing people to one group or party with young minds and to start building at the grass root…It is well! I know people who wanted to die on top Atiku matter and to be honest I always said neither him nor Buhari were an option, I would have gone for the Sowores or Moghalu them, either that or I wasn’t going to vote at all cause I knew this will be the case….and the case it was. It is done now so everybody buckle up and may God help us this next 4 years amen!
