  1. Oby would have been right peg in the right hope,to me o she would have done well as vice president and almost all women would have sued behind her😏😏

  2. wow..wa…now the the buhari organization campaign are really worried.obj have endorsed atiku,in less than 24 hr.atiku picked peter obi as his running mate,it is likely pdp will defeat agpa in the next governorship position.
    Instead of Mr festus kemoyo,their director of digital propaganda machinery,addressing the problem facing Nigeria,they start to makes personal attack on atiku,meaning they have nothing damaging on atku,as for having business venture in contrary to civil servant code of conduct,his wife could be managing this business for him,mr buhari do have business in daura,he does have a ranch,he did admit on british media,he employed a thousand illeteral Nigeria youth.is this business on trust while as Nigerian president,baba obj put his farm on blind trust,while on as Nigerian president.
    Act of desperation,personally,i am not a fan of atiku,i thought he is a chameleon,the man I felt,who will makes us Nigerian proud after obj,would be Donald Duke.peter obi was my governor of my home state anambra state.thing are moving faster than I thought,it looks atiku is changing,maybe we are all having a changing mood.
    Donald Duke have became the social democratic party,presidential candidate,i must confess,i am a fan of Donald Duke,he fits and have the quality of a leader, a visionary,a good administrator,no whiff allegation of corruption while in office.for the sake of my former governor peter obi and for the overall goodness of our country.we may all support atiku for the presidency of nigeria.God bless Nigeria and makes Nigeria great againthen we all expels all those white parasite from the country we govern ourselves and controls our thinking and our natural resources
