i know from the beginning that picture is put up here for sinister motives cheesy

Buhari has failed and failed woefully and no amount of sentiments can change that.

instead of reeling out Buhari's achievements to convince people why he should be voted,they have resorted to sentiments that have not helped Nigeria since independence.
and the moderator that brought this to front page,you will definitely reap what you sow.

The best candidates were this evening on # ThePeoplesDebate ,
but the truth remains that no matter how salutary, ambitious,
poignant, effulgent and clearcut your ideas may be, they are
unachievable with our present structure and with the 1999
constitution.
Even world's best leaders like Lee Kuan Yew, Barrack Obama
and Thomas Sankara put together, will fail woefully in Nigeria
with our current atavistic structure.
Nigeria has a structural problem which must be solved

Shorrop there, who told you Barack Obama is among the world’s best leaders? What makes “best leaders”? Is it by Reading efficiently from a TelePrompTer at rallies or state of the union address OR pragmatic efforts to improve the living standards of your people while keeping them safe? The latter does not apply to Obama so don’t say what you don’t know!

My friend, Shut up! You dont know history.

Aguiyi Ironsi never participated in the coup. Go and find out the coup executors.
All these small small boys that were not taught History.

He achieved what most of your entire generation will not achieve in their lifetime; Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the Golden Voice of Africa as he was fondly also known; murdered in cold blood by your nyamiri blodas; may your unwarranted insolence and those responsible for his murder be repaid a thousand fold in the same coin - say Ameen.

How was Aguyi Irosin involved in his death? Bro, do some simple research, its very easy. It was even Irosin that defeated the coup plotters.

Improved living standards

Who brought America out of a recession when they were losing 700,000 jobs per month and the Dow stock index was experiencing its largest landslide since the Great Depression. Obama turned dt tide, unemployment halted and employment increased throughout his tenure. And the dow100 went from an all time low of 6000points in 2008 to 14,000 points.

Keep his people safe.

Who decimated alqaeda in Afghanistan & Yemen stopping them from ever regrouping and actually KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN. The mastermind of the worst ever terrorist attack on American soil.


You better keep ur mouth shut where intelligent people are having a conversation. Your ipob brainwashed mentality has turned u lot to dolts wt a pea sized brain. Lmao!

For me., sometimes, I tend to give the constitution a breather. I think it's a people's thing. There's no constition that will change a civil servants penchant for corruption or restrain a vastly illiterate society from ass-licking a (thieving ) politician. Nigeria has passed that stage a long time ago. We are too divided in our opinions that as long as the constitution is written by a man we (lawyers and all) will find a way around it.
What we need at this point is self restrain and purposeful leadership.
By Self restraint, I mean telling ourselves the truth as a people. There's a big followership problem in this country. As for leadership, we must be careful what we wish for. I feel very strongly that no civilian (constitutional ) govt can navigate us out of this mess. We need a conservative dictator to set things in the right direction. One who will initiate a new pples constitution.
This may sound funny but, look closely and you will see the point in it.

This eastern monkey called Nzeogwu killed him. How Nigerian would have been great if not for selfish easterners. The same greed and selfishness they show in trading is the same greed and selfishness that made them believe that they can kill everyone and have the country to themselves alone.
The Ibos are the root cause of Nigerias problem.

And a host of others too, so Ironsi could take over. They did pay dearly for it tho.
Now they scream marginalization..... Crooks

Go and read your history well. The coup wasnt meant for Ironsi to take over. He was even a target too.

Nigeria needs to go back to a parliamentary system of government. The head of government should be the prime minister, leader of the party with the most seats in a unicameral legislature. The president should be a ceremonial head of state with no real political powers.
