this is why Africa would never go forward...sycophancy has taken over us...
It was still this Adichie woman that praised Bihari last year when he won the election, saying GEJ Regime had failed her and everything crappy about GEJ ...
She's now speaking against Because her tribes people are being killed....

let's stop this behavior and stand for the truth...we need writers like her and Soyinka to preach to Nigerians to see the light... what has Adichie done to effect moral and social development? apart from loaning us extremism of feminist ideas?

what the Fulani' herdsmen are doing is so wrong... but what did you expect when you supported a fanatic?
You didn't read the article, else you wouldn't have spewed such venom.
The issue at hand is not Buhari vs GEJ. Simply put she believed Buhari was the savior but unfortunately he failed to live up to expectations and faltered in key areas. For example there was no real reason for delay of appointment of ministers.

am sure most people will just read the headline and comment based on emotions. its a very insightful piece which as far as I know says that the only way Nigeria can move forward as a country is for the people themselves to realize the problems and be the change....stop blaming ....start acting

This woman is a terrible disappointment. As "enlightened" as you are Adichie, you welcomed the emergence of an ex-military dictator who almost destroyed the country?
There is no other country in this world where a former military dictator will contest and win elections twenty yearss after his exit from power except in this useless Nigeria, whilst having the backing of supposedly enlightened people.
Nigeria is the only in the world where people vote ex military dictators and we wonder why we are not progressing.

An average zombie won't even ageee with you on this.
You know why?

You are the terrible disappointment here!

We are discussing serious issues here. ..not some "isiewu joint", snake or Tonto Dike topic!
