How Benevolent are these Nigerians who paid for Buhari’s $130,000 nomination forms, indeed that their benevolence could not be extended to the poor in the country, civil servants and widows but only to an old President, who is almost 80 years old but wants to remain in power at the detriment of people being killed and massacred in the country he rules yet, nothing bothers him except return to power.
Are they Nigerians who can not afford to feed or do not have a source of income or are they civil servants, who have not been paid for more than one year now or are they among the jobless graduates roaming the streets of Nigeria looking for jobs to no avail.
Are they not the same group of Politicians, who continuously have sap the country of all its resources by holding unto power and supporting a man who is almost 80 years to return to power by raising the nomination fee so high so that the young ones interested in contesting, who can move the country to a new level can not afford the fee.
Where did these benevolent Nigerians as they have been called get this huge sum? The countries wealth which they and their leader which they are busy trying to return to power have embezzled.
Africa leaders need to stop this now, Enough is enough. Nigeria is looked upon as a leader in Africa but this crop of its leaders have killed the glory as a result of their greed.
No one is being deceived by this all by all this charade, it is time for our youths to rise up and refuse this form autocracy. Let our youths be wise, we can not allow men who are close to their graves dictate our future or turn our country into their family business.
The youths in Africa need to be wise, Nigerian youths need to stand in one voice and refused to allow these old crops of dictators deceive and continue in power to embezzle and amass wealth for themselves
