  • Why is it that whenever the so called boko haram claim respponsibility is always via audio in youtube? If they truly exist why don’t they release videos in nigeria’s native media? Anybody bold enough to carry out these mass murders should be bold enough to be to show himself to the public. Who are we fighting? A myth, a fantasy or our own government?

  • ASUU CALL OFF. . .U made us stay at home not d Govt. Evry of ur need can’t b met we all know that. THIS IS NIGERIA. U made the students idle and confussed. U people blame politicians but u ar of the same flock. HEARTLESS. All u fight for is ur belly

  • The easiest way to stop ASUU strike – any strike in NIGERIA is to carry out no work, no pay, no accomodation. The students/public are not aware of any secret agreement ASUU signed with Yar dua govt in 2009. They failed to publish it in any newspaper. How can over 50-65yrs old men and women calling themselves professors hold the youths of Nigeria to ransome while collecting their monthly salary. In a country where avg life expectancy is 45-50yrs retirement age should actually be 55-60yrs – NO MORE. Anything more than 60yrs is over time for exceptional cases. Prof Awuzie should be ashamed of himself. He should be arrested as a terrorist/anarchiest and worst than BOKO HARAM. Warn him to retire or be retired.

  • BOKO HARAM OR WHAT EVER , I STRONGLY BELIEVED THAT NIGERIAN POLITICIAN ARE BEHIDE ALL THIS , BUT WHAT I KNOW IS THAT ONE DAY WHAT BOKO HARAM THE BAD SEED THEY INVEST SHALL SURELY GET BACK TO THEM , YES THEY WILL NOT GO FREE, ONE THEY THEY WILL BE EXPOSED

  • Just as some crops cannot survive in some soils, Boko Haram is very strange to our nigerian soil, it definitely will not survive inour soil. This 9ja soil is too dangerous for you to survive. Note this!
