  1. May dia soul RIP, bt type of country is dis dat our security is nt sure, we jst livin in scare of bomb, boko haram, etc. May God come 2 our rescue.

  2. Simpathizing with the injured is not all we need from you mr president. What is the essence of wishing them well today only for them to be injured tomorrow. We want you to take a step that we make us to know that you are man enough to man the office in which you are placed. Do you even move around at all mr president or you just sit down in our office and drink coffee?
    Please sir we want you to stop all these crises here and there. We all know you can’t do it all but it seems you are not just doing it at all.
    What we are asking for mr president is simple.
    Good health, good road, good electricity, good education, sound and reliable security service. Just give us these and trust we nigerians to work the rest out on our own.
    We are not lazy lots its lack of these things that is setting in the confussion.
    On good roads we are 85% sure of our goods and services being delivered to various destinations. With the presence of all mentioned above we the cituzens know we have a very bright future. Crime rate will even drop to manageable level because nobody want to die or be jailed.

  3. may God punish these illiterate and foolish people, for killing the innocent people and may god destroy their sponsors . just trying to pull Nigeria backward when other country are looking for means to develop their country. come to think of it can those looting our money lives in all the mansion they built simultaneously. selfish interest.
    Is martin lutan king not human being. he is always remembered for the good job he has done…

  4. Mr president pls do something fast for us,or are you in the same mind with them that says if they remain 1000 I we rule on them? Pls do something cos our future is somehow! May all their gentle rest in perfect peace
