  1. You wicked bigot.I denounce APC from this day you instructed the Military to kill innocent citizen in a Democratic era. The UK said they want to live EU and it was agreed with simple vote,they simply ask for referendum not fighting and killing them. I now understand voting any past Military President is the worst mistake we have made as Nigerians. What is worst than this than a genocide.Your administration is a terrorist administration. You are terrorizing and killing the citizens you promised to protect by your oat of office.

  2. I reject buhari. I regret supporting this foolish old man. I thought as an old man you will apply wisdom in managing the affairs of Nigeria. The blood of innocent biafrains will forever be on your head and your descendents. Shame on governors of south east states. You watch your people being killed for speaking up. You did not ban fulani herdsmen that have killed your people and destroyed lives and properties in stead you have cash compensation to them. Because you have state security around you therefore u don't care about others. Only time will tell.

  3. Buhari won't win a second term. Just watch out.
