Election: Comments and reactions
Politics in Nigeria as we all know have always been a tug of war in Nigeria when it comes to choosing a presidential candidate.
One of the reasons it has always been like that is due to the high level of intelligence, smart and choosy nature of the people of Nigeria. For this reason, Nigerian have always been unsatisfied with the rulership of the chief of arm forces they have voted in; in rest times.
Former president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan who have been awarded as one of the best presidents in Africa is NOT an exceptional.
But the utterances, actions and whaling of almost every Nigerian have resulted to My News on Point to make more findings the choice of Nigerians in the forth coming election based on their reactions and comments.
Below are some but few reactions and comments gathered from Facebook users:-
“Please kindly treat this information sir with urgency. I just got a sensitive secret information this morning during the time the APC came for campaign in my community today. All APC members were directed to get to the voting center latest by 7:00 am and be on the queue that a specific APC agent will be on the line and will be the last person to vote after which the agent will signal to the INEC officials and with the cooperation of the security, voting will be stopped and other party members will not be able to cast their votes.
They even promised that APC members will be settled financially first at a specific spot and they will ALL move at the same time to the voting venue. They did it successfully during the governorship election after the INEC officially discovered that the remaining voters on the queue are PDP. Please, sensitise ALL PDP members to get to the polling center by 7:00am The God of heaven will arise in his power and mercy and cancel every of their plans insha Allah, but we must strategise”.
- I STAND WITH ATIKU N OBI
I want to address the issue of corruption. When Atiku was with APC, why didn’t they shout about his corruption then? Why did they praise him to highest heavens? Why did Buhari fly in Atiku’s private jet all over Nigeria? Why is he now corrupt when he decamped and left for PDP? Why hasn’t he been convicted if they truly had evidence against him? Why didn’t Lai Mohammed carry out his threat to get him arrested on Bank PHB issue when he travelled to the US?
Let me go deeper. Who are those surrounding Buhari? Is Atiku more corrupt than Tinubu? Or Amaechi is no longer corrupt? Or Fashola who dug two boreholes in Lagos at a cost of N139m as alleged by his own State not corrupt? Is one corruption greater than the other? I don’t want to go into the various scandals emanating from important figures in this administration. No one should pull the wool over our eyes- corruption is alive, well and probably stronger. Am I saying Atiku is not corrupt? No. But has he been convicted? Is he not innocent until he’s proven guilty? He has been out of office for years without immunity- even till now. So if Adams Oshiomole who has a petition against him in EFCC allegedly gathering dust can lead the President’s party, no one in that party should pontificate about the corruption of another. Get a conviction or get out”.
- “Having laid this foundation, I make bold to ask: where has the much touted integrity of Buhari taken Nigeria? We are worse off than we were 4 years ago. Integrity without competence won’t take you anywhere.
Buhari doesn’t have it. All the indices that make for a great nation are south ward. People leave this nation in droves daily because they can’t see a future. We need someone who can urgently pull back the chest from the fire. You face an enemy size for size. You don’t confront an enemy who has missiles with a machete. Atiku- warts and all- is the only one who can match Buhari. At least, this is clearly evident from his campaigns all over the nation. His combination with Peter Obi is like a bowl of amala with gbegiri and ewedu garnished with well-tendered goat meat. Both men understand how to run modern businesses. Both men have made a success of their individual careers and businesses. Atiku is liberal, cosmopolitan, refined and knows how to spot talents.
Peter Obi is a great manager of resources and outstanding technocrat who has been exceptional in leadership. Many years out of office, he is yet to be accused of a single case of corruption. We need leaders who will pull the nation back from the brink, heal our divides and restore hope. If there is one thing I know, Atiku will handle the economy better. He will have a much more colourful cabinet. He will not be nepotistic. He won’t lock up El Zak Zakky for months and refuse to release him in spite of court orders. He won’t look away and gloss over the murder of over 300 Shiites. He will heal the divides of this nation. That is not asking for too much. If Atiku wins and does not perform to expectation within 4 years, we will kick him out too. We will keep changing our leaders until we get the one that is fit for role. This is my stance.
Atiku/Obi is the viable option. Any vote for any other candidate is either a waste or indirectly in support of the incumbent.
I am voting Atiku”.
- My genotype is AA (Atiku Abubakar)
My blood group is O-Positive (Obi- Peter)
My doctor said I’m very OK (Okowa4Governor)
PDP, power to Nigeria!!!💪💪💪
- “I owe Buhari my life, I was very sick, so sick that I can barely move on my sick bed, just den boom! NTA showed Buhari and strength came from nowhere, I stood up and off my TV.” 😂😂😂

Obasanjo has accused Atiku several times as Corrupt and he is now asking Nigerians to vote for him, what’s your take on that.
Peter obi: – Haven’t you seen a situation where the referee will say this is penalty, but after going to the replay TV, he will realise that it is not a penalty?
Do you think Buhari will emerge the winner even as the incumbent president?
If Buhari wins again, what would be of Nigerians and its economy?
Can Atiku unseat President Buhari in Nigeria’s 2019 elections?
