Affliction will never rise the second time says the Lord Almighty!
Looool. When he wins, he won’t get up from his bed in Aso Rock till 2023.
Retweet if you prefer Aso Rock is empty than seeing President Buhari in power again and like to see him return…Lets endorse a stat.
Everytime baba travels, we get a breaking new. Now we have this one
My Monday was rolling on a positive note, now Buhari has spoilt it with this yeye declaration. Who did this to us Nigerians?
Breaking news, Nigerians have just announced their intentions to send Buhari back to Daura come 2019 for displaying incompetence since 2015
We are solidly behind you our dear President. All these posts in disagreement are people who are used to free or stolen money that want the looting to continue! You already have 2019 in the bag!
Reno Omokri tweeted;
The man knew that his 2nd term declaration is unpopular, unpleasant and unpalatable to the vast majority of Nigerians which is why he ran away to London as soon as he announced the news. One would have thought he is contesting for @Theresa_May’s job the way he dashes to the UK.
Since Buhari hasn’t initiated and completed even one project as #BuhariChallenge proves, I urge him to use 2019 election to redeem himself. Initiate and complete a free election and give Nigerians the opportunity to fulfill their desire to retire you from politics next February!
