All the happenings in Nigeria is really taking a toll on us even psychologically, i am a patriotic Nigerian but would you believe i just scrolled down to about number 50 without checking the ones above, and started looking for Nigeria from there,i became conscious of my subconscious condescending action thereafter.We really all have to change our thinking towards our dear country and one another regardless of tribe or religion,its one of the first steps in making this country great again .i believe we would get there.As a man thinketh so is he, a house that is divided cannot stand.God bless us all and God bless Nigeria.

By the time buhari finishes with Nigeria, Nigerians will seek asylum in Somalia.

We Are not a war torn country but all the indices are pointing to the fact that we live in a failed state with a president who failed maths and economics but passed Arabic.
