History will rightly remember today's violence at the Capitol, incited by a sitting President who has continued to baselessly lie about the outcome of a lawful election, as a moment of great dishonor and shame for our nation. But we'd be kidding ourselves if we treated it as a total surprise.

Nigeria's foriegn minister should also summon the US ambassador to explain why Nigeria should not impose economic sanctions on the USA for killing harmless civilians and trying to truncate democracy in America. If the US ambassador doesn't offer reasonable explanations, then Nigeria can proceed to seize US assets including termination of all loan repayments.

Those countries looking up to United State democracy are highly disappointed.
If it were to be another country that practice such attitude, am sure US would have sanction the government immediately. Trump, who most Nigeria pastors believe he's the messiah.

Shame on Americans. This shows that US is not as smart and sophisticated as portrayed. Just one man's disagreement and everything is falling apart.
In which way is what is happening in US today different from what has been in other countries that they criticize bitterly without caution and understanding of it's possibility?

So US government killed 4 unarmed civillians who were exercising their democratic rights in the capitol hill.
CNN is not reporting the murders as a massacre abi. Most hypocritical news media ever.
Let me see anyone blame Buhari for clearing Lekki Toll Gate. Or bringing on the military against the endsars hoodlums burning police stations, looting, vandalizing and starting up a tribal war. Every country has a right to use force to forestall anarchy.
As for that failed artiste DJ Switch, we are waiting for her report on the 40 innocent unarmed protesters killed by the US National Guard.

Nigerians, especially Buhari supporters have seen enough reason in this US Capitol invasion to back up their tyrants undemocratic ways he's been using to undermine Nigeria's democracy that got solidified by ex President Goodluck Jonathan
You cannot compare Buhari's rigging and disobey of rule of law nor his total pocketing of all other arms of government in Nigeria with US democracy and the events of November 2020 US Presidential election and post-election. They are incomparable with what's obtainable in the United States of America.
Despite Trumps unwillingness to concede defeat, citing massive electoral rigging and fraud, his party men, the senators of his party and top government officials appointed by him, including US Supreme Court Judges sworn in by the same Donald Trump refused to support his undemocratic approach, can Nigerians, especially APC chieftains and party loyalists have the sanity to tell Buhari that he has failed and that they cannot suport his nepotism and tyranical leadership style without fear
Can we say the same for Buhari and APC that corruptly removed Nigeria's Chief Justice CJN Walter Onnoghen in a last minute coup and installed their rubber stamp, unqualified Sharia Court Judge to ensure Buhari's election rigging was upheld by the Supreme Court.
Who doesn't know that PDPs Atiku Abubakar won the 2019 Nigeria's Presidential election famously rigged by Buhari and sealed by Judicial coup, only foolish Nigerians believed that Buhari won 2019 Presidential election.
So you guys should quit the nonsense comparison, US remains the number 1 country when it comes to respect of democracy and rule of law. So nothing extraordinary happened to warrant all the noise because at the end, US democratic rules was upheld and the stubborn Trump told to go and sit down. Can such happen in Nigeria NO!!
