  1. Th is really the most stupid post of 2016. Why? Because it is a personal opinion, dubbed a public opinion.

    1. Admin

      It might look personal to you but you will not deny the fact that these men in one way or the other are hated by some Nigerians if not all

      1. Ostyn

        Everyone, one way or another is hated including you the Admin.
        Note that in this life, when all people love you there is a problem cos it’s impossible and not cool. That explains why even God is hated by some!

  2. Efiok, E.O.

    Well,what can I say.These men are by any stretch of the imgination,highly controversial.They are the ones who demonized themselves.Gopaal

  3. Galadima Sambo badikko

    The problem with criminals is that they get disturbed whenever they hear Buhari’s name. I wonder if south south region and South East region hates Buhari is news .What do you expect from to love Buhari?. Until all the thrives from that region are jail for conniving with their brother to milk Nigeria resources in billions you will know that he is not Baba go slow. Change is coming gradually no rush otherwise you will repeat the same mistake. You have to weed out the criminals out of the system before you progress.

  14. fisco

    How can anyone call diz post a stupid one when it is actually d gospel fact?You ar talkin about Buhari not being too slow and also more clueless about governance dan Jonathan…wait until 90% of Nigerians die of hunger and poverty.Don’t tink u ar havin a good job now and it doesn’t concern u oo.Dnt forget dat juz yestday even d almighty Chevron sacked 3000 workers while Julius Berger is about pulling out of d country.So,wait until joblessness and hunger knock on every door den,u will see dat diz is d most reasonable post of d millenium.I could use my last penny to buy a drink for Buhari wen he won dat election bt wit d present hunger and human beings dieing in d hospital cos dey cudnt afford juz 3000naira drugs,many Nigerians won’t hesitate to gun him down if chanced.

  15. A.B
