Although, i don’t support Nigeria calling for the resignation of the president because Nigerians have enter into contractual agreement with the president Buhari and they had sold their conscience, votes to Buhari. They cannot come within the game and request for the change of the game.
“So, Nigerians deliberately requested for a change which they did not specify. Have they forgotten that they have sighed a contractual agreement with APC to run for another four years, they should just wait till the expiration of the contractual agreement they have with APC and vote them out in 2023.”
“The government of the day are just full of empty lies, look at the economy of the country, we cannot continue to build the country on propaganda and lies. Now that they had tasted the hardship of APC they should just wait till 2023 and vote for PDP” he added
