If you re -elect Jonathan as President for second term, there will continue to be peace, stability and there will be no intimidation. Jonathan is a man sent by God, humble. No amount of abuses will mean anything to him.
“He will not take those abusing him serious. Jonathan is the most abused President by people of bad character. People saying that Jonathan cannot fight corruption are the most corrupt. Buhari cannot fight corruption. He said bank borrowed him to buy form, what he is spending today, is he borrowed by bank also?
“Those funding his campaign are corrupt and they have cases to answer in court.? Let them answer that they are not corrupt, they cannot. Whoever want to abuse should look at himself first.
“They are not qualify to rule Nigeria. They lie about, raise uneccessary alarm. ? Buhari became head of state through a coup. He stole 2.8m dollars when he was Petroleum Minister. Buhari was to be probed for the loss of that money. But before the probe will start Buhari staged a coup. Locked up Shagari, Ekwueme in kirikiri. Every of their leader is a corrupt person. A corrupt leader cannot probe corrupt members”.
