you don't know what you are saying.

If one of your son use to pick money from your drawer, can you go to public and tell even your friends that one of your sons do steal from you?

Do you know the implications of that statement?

Any one of your sons could be the one, so When People meet any of you sons, they would not know who is actually the thief so They will treat all your sons as thieves.

Do you know the humiliation Nigerians are subjected to everywhere outside Africa

There are statements you should never make outside your home.
There are countries who are worst than Nigeria but they don't fight dirty in public.
We keep embarrassing ourselves everywhere.

Someone should train your president on how to answer questions??

he has really been messing up lately …

from calling some people 5%, up to this is bad image for the country.


And you stop politicizing everything, This has nothing to do with party. One of our problems is that we play politics with everything, even if lives is at stake.

Imagine you even brought up tribal sentiments, you really need help because you are the people causing problems in this country and you will always be the first to blame other people.
pls where did i mention party or tribe in my post?. Learn to read between the lines.

oga, your president needs to be trained on how to answer questions in public.
Every of his interviews, he commits blunders. from calling a section of Nigeria 5% to this one.

This one is worse

Some of u wil just be making comment for the sake of making op. The president is very correct to have come out even internationally to redeem our image by calling us to order. Go to common india the number of nigerian serving Jail term wil amaze u.. The president is just calling on us to be law abiding n if u can make a good living abroad come back home so we can mak d country great instead of tarnishing our image abroad. And from his briefing worldwide u wil realise he his d best thing happening to us at the moment pls. Let's us not lie; n that's why the previous regime made away our national treasury cos many of us in dis from share sentiments of liers which we're conversant with.
oga your president does not know how to speak in public,

go and train him well, he started by calling some people 5%, ill soon compile a list of blunders your president makes during interviews.

Can you compare crime rates of China and US to Nigeria
Do you hear the president of other countries say such concerning their country!!

you don't even know the implications of that statement.

When the masses rise in anger.......

So the brainlessness of Criminal-In-Chief, Criminal Buhari is beginning to bite right? You people should enjoy the change you clamoured for o!

1984 all over again.... Jubilations on the streets when as a military diktat, he overthrew the democratic government of Shagari and few months later, the masses were ready to go push him out from Dodan Barracks!

Exactly same scenario playing out today! Same bigoted ethnic actions, same brainless economic policies, some untold hardship on Nigerians, same uprising by the citizens against him, same.... I can't add the ending of 'same series' abeg! I no fit shout! But sure, the same after the 'unutterable same' is comforting; same abode: PRISON! Who wants to bet that's how Buhari will end up? He's been taken to ICC right?

"Buhari you open your rotten smelly mouth to call hard working people 'criminals' because they refused to be among your 'rankadede' crowd. People working 2 to 4 jobs to eke out a living whenever they are, you opened your mouth to call 'criminals'? People excelling in their careers and earning decent pays you called them criminals? Ok, manage these ones;
Buhari, you are an animal. A brainless goat. A fool. A demented bigot. A lunatic. A senile terrorist. Your are the epitome of unproductivity with your failed cattle farm. A silly illiterate who for 30 years that you were out of power couldn't have a pamphlet to his name! You are a common thief who, as a corrupt insecure dictator went to steal an unapproved PhD from Kaduna state in connivance with your imp 2 i/c, El Ruffian, the criminal in charge of Kaduna state.
Buhari you are a criminal! Till date, where is your certificate? Did you not via 'body langweji' accept the forgery below as your certificate? Did you not lie that you have only 150 cows and N3million Naira? So, where did the over N950million Naira on your asset declaration form come from?
Zara your daughter is the head criminal for single ladies. She schooled in London right? There you have it! It must have been stolen money by you criminal that she schooled with, money stolen from Nigeria that would have seen us having industries and schools that would have stemmed the tide of brain drain and 'emigrate by all means' attitude of Nigerians! That you trained your kids in London with stolen money is the reason why you think every other parent training their wards in London are criminals. Takes one to know one!
Your wife Aisha nko? Yes I'm dragging her into this because you said 'NIGERIANS', you didn't specify, hence its the men and the women alike. When will Aisha visit the US abeg? Your criminal wife name appeared in court documents of Halliburton scandal, same crime some people are in jail because of it. You are married to a criminal and instead of hiding your head in shame, you impugn on the integrity of other honest people.
Even your paternity is criminal too. Is your dad from Nigeria mgbo Buhari? Why are you always being linked with Niger? And hey, I'm not talking about your recent NORMAL show of brainlessness at a conference recently, I'm talking about why you ALWAYS support the election of Nigeriens over Nigerians for international positions.
Criminal Buhari, stop this inferiority complex that gives you oral diarrhea anytime you see Oyibo man" - Akin Yusuf

JONATHAN ADMISTRATION WAS PROTECTIVE OF NIGERIA AND NIGERIANS IMAGE.....BUHARI ACTUALLY ATTACK THE IMAGE

FG Summons Zimbabwean Envoy Over Mugabe’s Attack On Nigeria

The Federal Government on Thursday summoned the Zimbabwean Head of Chancery over remarks credited to President Robert Mugabe, which depicted Nigerians as very corrupt people.

FG Summons Zimbabwean Envoy Over Mugabe’s Attack On Nigeria

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Zimbabwean Head of Chancery, Stanley Kunjeku, in Abuja to formally lodge a protest.

The Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Dr Martin Uhomoibhi, described Mugabe’s comment as “vitriolic and denigrating on Nigeria and Nigerians”.

He said, “We were very concerned when we read that on the occasion of the 90th birthday of President Mugabe, he took off considerable time to vituperate about Nigeria.

What we consider to be a strong aversion of our country, remarks which we consider denigrating and un-statesmanly on Nigeria and Nigerians in general.

He was reported to have said Nigerians are corrupt people when he hosted service chiefs on his 90th birthday.

We want to present the strongest protest in that statement; not only does it not reflect the reality in our country, but to come from a sitting president of a brotherly country is most unkind and very dishonourable.”

Uhomoibhi said the Zimbabwean president’s comment was unfortunate, given the role played by Nigeria in the liberation struggle in southern Africa.

He said, “Nigeria had always stood with Zimbabwe shoulder to shoulder since independence and was one of the first countries to congratulate Mugabe on his re-election.

At the point sanctions were imposed on your country, Nigeria empathised with Zimbabwe.”

Later, the permanent secretary told newsmen that Nigeria’s reaction to the comment was not belated, given that it had been in the public domain since March 15.

“In our diplomatic parlance, we do not react the way people would want us to react; we have to verify and articulate our position,” he said.

In his response, Kunjeku said Nigeria’s protest would be forwarded to Harare.

Meanwhile, Uhomoibhi has condemned the reported attacks on Nigerians in South Africa last week.

Uhomoibhi said, “We condemn in strong terms, any acts of racism, xenophobia and discrimination perpetrated by whomsoever, including in that particular country.

We are appalled that these incidents occur from a country that we hold in highest esteem and which is a brotherly country to Nigeria.

We hope that due processes would be taken so that this does not happen (again).”

The permanent secretary also called on the South African Government to take appropriate actions against those responsible for the attacks.

He urged South Africa to abide by its commitment to international standards of behaviour and cordial relations between both countries.

On April 2 and 3, some wounded Nigerians were hospitalised in Pretoria after attacks by organised gangs in South Africa.

Also, no fewer than 25 shops owned by Nigerians in Johannesburg and Pretoria were looted by the South African gangs.

Quite agree with you , PMB should have set a standard and holiday in a place like Obudu if there isn't any hidden agenda. He can go further by mandating all civil servants to go on leave ( not monetize the leave ) and during the leave they should patronize local tourist sites as this will help build a vibrant tourism market.

They are the Wailing Epkas and were angry because Baba mentioned Drug Trafficking as one of the reasons Nigerians are regarded with scepticism in the outside world. They feel that line was directed at them. cheesy


So if you know the people behind it why not say it or are you one of the cowards who hide behind keyboard. Let me tell you i am one of those diaspora , let me make it clear to you that Nigerians may be in prison around the world because of drug trafficking but the major destroyer of Nigeria image abroad is corruption , 419 and boko haram of which all this are mainly carried out by Nigerians at home.. If i may say 80% of bad image Nigeria as a country has started from Naija. Again let me make it clear to you, here in America where i live i will proudly let you know that Nigerians has the highest percentage of university education in all American society and guess who are the highest Nigerians living in America the people you can't bring yourself to name because a coward will always be a coward.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Vacation

Presidents need many vacations for their jobs are very tough. If you knew how two young men Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama aged in four years and then four more years you will see how challenging the job can be. A 73-year old Buhari will need to catch his breath much more often than Clinton and Obama. Both had 2 months’ vacation in every year of their services. One in summer (usually in Massachusetts Martha’s Vineyard) and winter in Hawaii. Nobody should begrudge PMB of his well-earned vacation.

But why would a Nigerian president not spend his vacation in Nigeria? Why must he spend it abroad? This is where we show that we do not like what we have at home and do nothing to make what is abroad available to us in Nigeria. When we get sick we go abroad, we want education for our kids we go abroad and we get a vacation time we go abroad. 

This is a shame.

A country that is foreign exchange starved cannot afford to have her president and his entourage spend their vacation times and foreign exchange abroad. I had thought that PMB was opposed to foreign junkets while a candidate but he seems to have become his own foreign secretary and now spends his vacation abroad. SS has very many wonderful resorts in Obudu Cattle ranch, and Calabar is a very holiday friendly place. Enugu has Nike Lake resort and there is the old Jankara Game Reserve. Or why did the president not go back to his village in Katsina and play checkers/draft with his old buddies? These would make him live as Nigerians live and make him feel like ordinary Nigerians.

I have lived in USA for a little while. Over these years I am yet to read of a foreign head of state spending his vacation in US. Why do we snub our things, always searching for things abroad? Would other Nigerian who want to enjoy their vacations abroad get the foreign exchange to do so or is PMB above the law?

God save Nigeria

I am not saying dont complain about SaiChange's vacation, but at least speak to the issue that was raised here, not some other issue that is completely tangential to the argument. all the people that are saying why did buhari say what he said, wait until you get to an international airport and you have been thoroughly embarrassed before you say your bit, biko. only then can you understand the plight of the law abiding nigerian in a foreign country...

It's politicians that have destroyed our reputation @home and abroad, not hard working people that have gone to seek greener pastures abroad, not for themselves mind u, but to take care of their families back home. To make something of themselves in a land where merit is respected not federal character. As for crime, we no thief reach oyinbo people. Disparaging your fellow citizens can never be mistaken for rebranding anywhere in the world. What Mr president has done is the same as a father calling his daughter a prostitute in the presence of her potential suitors, and at d same time being confused when they refuse to continue courtship.

I wish there was a way to like your comment a thousand times. Kudos bro. Well said.
