    This man is really sowing a seed of discord in Nigeria. Another Northerner right? It looks like he want this country to break up, honestly!

    The problem we have is when people like you writing rubbish and reason the way you just did. We are one Nigeria and it doesn't matter who is appointed as long as the person is not a thief. Federal character has not helped Nigerian people at all. So @Jide stop this nonsense and join hands in building Nigeria.

    @Abokiman The problem we have in Nigeria is people like you who support people because of where they come from. If Goodluck Jonathan gave major appointments to Southerners, do you think that people like you will not cry fowl. I am sorry for you because you think that your Buhari will be president for life. Wake up from your slumber and buy common sense. Abokiman my abunna:p
