    1. Why the constant warning regarding the swearing in. If he truly got it as deserved, there is no need to send out warnings. A clear conscience fears no accusation 😉

  2. The bad/sad news in this country is worrisome. when will good news supercede bad news? O ma se oo!

  3. Oh my God what is again .

  4. Oh my God not again after what we are passing through.

  5. @anon 12.31. The warning is for those people who might want to try themselves before or on May 29, and we have seen some comments on social media. If you are not planning rubbish, then remain in peace.

    For the prophets giving prophesies they should kontinu.

    We have seen candidates that have gone to court but instead of waiting for the tribunal to do its job, they keep going around media houses giving interviews everyday talking about their so-called stolen mandate.
    Some are even using the NLC to threaten the judges, we are all Nigerians and we dey watch.
