Office of the President


  1. He go hot pass Vuhari of Nigeria. May be the Army chief campaigned against him.

    1. Guess you read only the headline, well he reappointed him as minister of defence pending senate confirmation.


  2. This is how a man who has a plan for his country behaves,George wear came prepared for presidency and not like Buhari that took 6months doing nothing before he could appoint his lazy and corrupt minsters & political appointees.


  3. #You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending*

  4. It seems he thinks he is a taking control of his country after a coup and not after an election. No need to state repeatedly “with immediate effect”.
