  • Baba Jada

    Its too early to be talking of 2019, but if this current economic hardship continues, Atiku is a good alternative come 2019.

      But which party is he going to stand on?

  • The Realist

    Atiku indeed are we cursed with bad leaders in Nigeria?and why are our citizens so naive when it comes to electing credible leaders?shame

    • Larry

      Perhaps naive? This is to say the least. Mr. Realist, not until every single, young, old male and female, sees Nigeria as their country and ready to protect it (the same way they’ll protect what they work hard for)–we’re in this downward hole for a long unforeseeable time. In other words, our individualism, unpatriotic tendencies has eaten so deep and becoming incurable. These rogue, irresponsible so-call leaders know this (see this) and are taken advantage of the situation. This is evident in the crisis and trouble seen all around the country. These (crisis and unrest) are nothing, but tools and devices that these bigots use to divert the attention of the country. Sadly, this will continue unless Nigerians rise for total change. This, however, will not come without some sacrifice.

      You are only correct if Nigerians do not sell their votes. Nigerians believe that no money no election winning.
