  8. Nigeria is finished.How can the APC continue to win in elections despite the complaint from the citizenry across the states? Poor governance by the APC led federal government is throwing nigeria into darkness and hardship yet they are winning even when the masses openly oppose such victories. Nigeria is in trouble. Am not interested in parties but nigerians.
