  1. Buhari is a dump head president. All he want is to become president without any clue of his job. Many of this guys committing atrocities are from Niger and Libya. If anyone trying to fight back to protect themselves buhari will get them arrested or jailed them and he always set the criminal free or ask them to join the Nigerian army. Every part of Nigeria Country has been invaded by the foreign fulani's and uptil today Buhari never come out straight to condemned it or find any solution. He thought it's just to spend tax payers money make him a president. He can't read and he doesn't even understand how to address his citizens. What a Nation in the hand of clueless man like Buhari. We need urgent help please. Shame on you all Nigerian politicians.
