    Stupid postulation. When he was on ground other than rhetorics on some imaginary loots and the ever bogus BH annihilation, can you list his achievements? While away did the VP not performed more creditably? Idiotic pecuniary boot lickers, you should rather say the rented crowd has no alternative to Buhari. And this is isn’t the first time we hear of such bullshit; it was said of Abacha, OBJ saw himself as the only messiah Nigeria will ever produce not leaving out GEJ, some even threatened to relocate if he’s not returned to power, but where are they today? History!
