It is within the president’s right to seek re-election. It is also within the right of the citizens to say NO to incompetence and bad leadership.

…seeking re-election for doing nothing in 3years? That’s corruption!

African Leaders dont know when to step down, from a position of power Even if it means coming to office in a wheelchair with an IV drip!

My Monday was rolling on a positive note, now Buhari has spoilt it with this yeye declaration. Who did this to us Nigerians?

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.
