Ben C Odai
"Nigeria is now mini Afghanistan! They keep denying the obvious truth on daily basis, despite the fact that terrorists are rampaging the Northern part of the Country. The must painful aspect of it all, is that, the people that promised to secure the Country against terrorists seems to be helpless or they deliberately refused to do the needful."
"PMB's administration has turned from the most loved to the most hated in Nigeria. May we never witness such an unlucky and unfortunate end."
Ahmad Shu'aibu Malancy
"To hell with Nigerian government. They have taken security issues so lightly, hmmm God have mercy upon us."
"Railway is not good for countries where terrorists operate and kill at will. But no one would take the advice because they have their cuts from the contracts which future is a blink and blank as the dangers were so clear on the routes."
"The north ll Start to see changes the day they start to face and protest against their elites who had made life difficult for the ordinary man. What has the government done on the issues of those 6 elites the USA govts called out for sponsoring Boko Haram? Those are what the Northern youth supposed to be fighting to get justices because the USA CIA just don't give out confidential information. The northern youth should wake up, they're stronger together."
Jesus Christ! I don't understand what's going on in this country again, everywhere is not safe, may God help us."
