  1. Let the Boko Haram and the ISWAP continue killing themselves. In fact, they should keep up the good job. Awon omo ale jati jati.

  2. INEC Nigerians are looking up to you for a credible election.

  3. Boko haram killing themselves should not stop at all. RIP to the late 20yrs poly student. May her killer be molested from the anus in the prison.

  4. I don't understand Buhari's repeated statement on handover by next year. Is he also*"Not Aware"* that his tenure of maximum of 8 years will expire by next year on May 29, 2022?!
    See me, see wahala of unnecessary restatement of commitment to handover power.

    "President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday restated his commitment to handing over leadership to an elected president on May 29 next year".
