Nigerian Wailers List 81 Failed Promises Of Buhari On Democracy Day 2017

A pressure group, Nigerian Wailers, has passed a vote of no confidence on the government of President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of the 2017 Democracy Day.


The group said this was with regard to the government’s failure to fulfill its campaign promises after two years in office.


A statement signed by Fasipe Oluyemi, its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, said Buhari’s government, which had given hope on many positive promises during its campaign, had not lived up to the expectation.

Nigerian Wailers added that: “We are aware of President Buhari’s ill health and how badly it has affected governance in the country. We hereby call on Mr President to resign from office on health grounds. The country is in a very bad shape and cannot afford a part time or invincible President.

“Further more, we urge the National Assembly to do the needful if President Buhari is unable to resign by himself by impeaching him. The country should not be put on hold because of one citizen.”

Do you know what demented means? Why are you people like this? If I say your dad is demented, hope it won't upset you? Meanwhile, we will all get old and it will come with different packages.

The Wailers are a bunch of jokers. When you list "to do ... iN FOUR YEARS" as a broken promise after 2 years, then you know the group is made up of jesters.

BTW, when did Buhari promise to build an AIRPORT in Ekiti State?

Buhari is Nigeria's albatross of course. This man hustled for 16years just to prove to us how much of a disaster he is.

APC is the greatest scammer that ever liveth. They have not even done 10 of the promises but instead adding more to our problems. How can a paint bucket of garri be N900? Shame on you APC members. No light sef make I no kill my battery.

Treasury looting is GEJ's only legacy.
PDP celebrated treasury looting for the 6 years GEJ was there.

Recovery of looted fund is becoming one of PMB's legacies.
APC should celebrate the recoveries and apply them well.
