Technically, 2019 Election Will Be The Easiest Time To Become The President Of Nigeria

The decision by President Buhari to seek re-election in 2019 is simply to tell those people, including former president Obasanjo, who dare advice or instruct him not to seek re-election in 2019, that it is within his constitutional right to do so.

And I believe Buhari knows very well that he will lose a free and fair presidential election in 2019. But as someone who is obsessed with Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari wouldn't mind becoming the second incumbent president to lose an election in Nigeria.

Boko Haram and Their Kidnappings: Like Chibok Girls; Like Dapchi Girls: Another Deception?

In April 2014, Boko Haram terrorists kidnapped over 200 school girls from Chibok community in Bornu sate of Nigeria. Well, that was the story given to the world by the Nigerian government. That incident occurred few months to the Presidential election held in early 2015.

From that day onward, the then incumbent president (Mr. Jonathan) was labelled as weak and ineffective. President Buhari who was in opposition then was hyped as a ‘strong man’ who would defeat Boko Haram and rescue the Chibok girls.

A Pastor Is A Motivational Speaker Than A Man Of God

I briefly found myself in a Church after many years. And it was exactly at the time the Pastor was delivering his sermon. The pastor was a vibrant young man, his eloquence was remarkable.
