A real treason, may be these pernalities are un aware of the consequences of their action. Beside, is it now that they realize state of nigeria with regard to insecuty and abuse of power?
we at the north suffered untold killing by both BH,and some violent tribe of platue during jonathan administration . and no revolution campaign against him was lunch becouse we knew he democratically elected president.
It is good that our mentors are taking the lead. We are behind any move towards the unity and progress of Nigeria, including fervent prayers to Yeshua the Christ. I always admire the resilience of FALANA (SAN).
Go ahead .The nation is at a crossroad. We want life with meaning in Nigeria.Nigeria belong to a committee of undemocratic socialist countries.
