Stop sounding ignorant. It does not take much for world powers to render a developing/3rd world country useless, am sure you do not know there was a recent increase of 240 percent in fuel prices in the so called mugabe country. They have not been smilling over there for close to 20 years.
I think you should stop arguing ignorantly. Zimbabwe had nothing to offer any Western country. Nigeria has too many ties to be fuccked with.

Also, what is happening to Zimbabwe after Mugabe's exit is even worse than was she experienced during his terms.

Since the Western influence, after the new idiot, Emmerson, assumed office and allowed policies that they tried to handtwist mugabe into implementing, they've been worst!!!

Watch more of CNN!!!

United States that can't administer its own government is not in a position to meddle into the affairs of another country. It bears reminding the whole world that United States government has been shut down for 29 days now. United States Senate is dysfunctional as we speak. Democrats & republicans don't see eye to eye. Where did the bipartisan congressional statements came from is beyond my comprehension. FAKE NEWS.

Thank God they noticed. Buhari and his people are becoming desperate. Imagine lai Mohammed coming out to threaten to arrest Atiku the main opposition presidential candidate for an offence allegedly committed in 1999. Deji Adeyanju is been held for crimes he allegedly committed while still in the university. Crimes he has been prosecuted for and the court has declared him not guilty. He is still being held right now inspire of a court granting him bail. Dino melaye was granted bail yesterday, I hope this lawless government will adhere to the court's judgement
Buhari will win the election by wide margin nothing will happen. Keep dreaming , Buhari will win the election , I repeat Buhari will win the election heaven will not fall. It's just less than a month, let see what will happen after Buhari is declared the winner.
We will see the Americans coming here to remove him.

The old or new pulgarised CNN. Who takes most of their news serious in recent times?
Use Libya, Syria and Afghanistan as a yardstick. N. Korea and Iran are also not forgotten so if Mr. President errs in his way of governance, Nigeria as a whole will feel the heat if America decides to intervene.
I was right when I said you're not ignorant so please stop sounding like one. Have a great day.

You post make sense, I see something terrible waiting to happen to Nigeria as a whole If Atiku should win the election , I see part of the comstitution to be changed If Atiku wins and Saraki managed to return to the senate. It is a plan game and part of the secret meeting in Dubai, now involving US congress, Gardafi matter comes to mind. . We will smell it worst, Buhari should make use of all the looted money recovered now before thse thieves comes back and looting begins again.

US should stop supporting criminals.

Atiku is a good businessman. Saraki is an intelligent politician. Obi is a learned person as well.

This combo is very dangerous to the advancement of our nation.

Golden six and Eve’s comfort
The role of antioxidants like folic acid in preventing birth defects like spina bifida is well known, but the role of Golden six and Eve's comfort in pregnancy is often overlooked.

In addition to playing an important role in fertility and conception, Both play an important role in the development and growth of the baby. They help to regenerate stores of other antioxidants like Vitamin C and E. It also protects both mother and baby from the damaging effects of free-radicals and oxidative stress.

Many pregnancy complications and birth defects have been linked to oxidative stress, free radical damage and low vitamins levels in the mother and baby. The role of Golden six and Eve's comfort in the development of the baby and placenta is crucial.

The United States Congress has warned President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the harassment of the opposition political leaders, following recent perceived crackdown on some political figures in the country.

The warning by the US Congress is coming on the heels of a N156 million fraud allegation against former Vice-President and Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) by the federal government.

The UN Congress warning is contained in a bipartisan resolution urging the government of Nigeria, along with Nigeria’s political parties, to ensure electoral accountability and transparency in the upcoming February election.

A statement made available to THISDAY by Zachary Seidl of the US Congressional office, said the resolution, which has been adopted by the US Congress, was introduced on Wednesday, by Rep. Karen Bass, a top Democrat serving on the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, along with the Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Elliot L. Engel, the top Republican serving the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa Congressman Chris Smith, Nigeria Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Steve Chabot and Shelia Jackson Lee, and Representative Gregory Meeks.

“The upcoming elections in Nigeria, Africa’s largest democracy and economy, are critical to the future of the nation. Reports of President Muhammadu Buhari’s apparent crackdown on non-violent protests and harassment of opposition leaders are extremely concerning, as well as the ongoing violence that has been perpetrated by extremists, particularly in the Middle Belt region. The violence must be stopped, along with any subversion of the electoral process. The Nigerian government must see to free and fair elections, which this resolution calls for,” said Ranking Member Smith.

They urged President Buhari to copy the smooth transition in 2015 from the ruling party to the opposition, as their commitment to the strengthening of democracy in Nigeria.

“I am proud to be an original cosponsor of this legislation, which reaffirms the United States’ long-standing commitment to strengthening democracy in Nigeria. In 2015, Nigeria became another democratic role model for countries on the continent, showing that a credible electoral process could result in the peaceful transition of power from an incumbent to the opposition. Regardless of the outcome, my hope for the upcoming presidential, gubernatorial, and National Assembly elections is that Nigerian politicians, citizens, and the electoral commission will build on the successes of 2015 to further consolidate democracy in Nigeria,” said Chairman Engel.

The Congressmen harped on the imperative of conducting free and credible elections. “It is critical that Nigeria remain a role model in its region for democratic institutions and work to ensure free and fair elections. There can be no democracy without full confidence in the results of an election, and it is vital that there is full transparency so that February leaves no doubt as to the outcome,” said Representative Meeks.


According to Representative Bass, “It is in the best interest of the United States to maintain a strong bilateral relationship with a politically stable, democratic, and economically sound Nigeria that can play a leadership role in the region and the continent more broadly.

“A credible, transparent and peaceful election this coming February would further consolidate democratic gains achieved over the last two decades. Nigerians are deeply committed to democracy and ensuring transparency in electoral preparations, which would build public confidence in the electoral process. This resolution sends the message that the people of the United States will continue to stand with the people of Nigeria in support of peace and democracy.”

Still on US-Nigeria collaboration, Representative Chabot said, “As Co-Chair of the Congressional Nigeria Caucus, I appreciate the importance of a strong bilateral relationship with Nigeria and applaud its citizens for their commitment to democracy.

“There is still work to be done, however, to ensure that Nigeria’s upcoming elections are transparent, peaceful, and credible. Our resolution lays out the necessary steps to achieve these goals, and urges Nigeria to conduct elections free of violence. Conducting high-quality elections will strengthen our bilateral relationship, help consolidate Nigerian democracy, and be an example to other countries.”

Atiku, an "aide" to the Nigerian Senate President......

Senate President's Visit to the United State:

"We cannot apprehend Atiku because of our diplomatic ties with Nigeria, he's being booked as an 'aide' to Nigeria's Senate President".

- US Department of African Affairs

None of the aides of Atiku knew he was traveling because Atiku himself travelled as an aide to SARAKI.
