    Nigeria is at WAR!!! and against the hope of many of our politicians in the south-west, this may soon spread over here.I can’t understand why these so called leaders over here at peace believing all is well when there are signs of red lights all over.Is it until they attack Lagos, Ibadan and the other states in the south-west? Its a pity people are terribly suffering.I mean if you know the pains,fear,uncertainty and unrest those living there are face with.Nigerians, don’t be deceived into thinking all is well. Once again I say, if our leaders stall the necessary actions needed to be taken,MAY WE HOPE WE DON’T COMPLETELY DESTROY OURSELVES-TIME WILL TELL.

  • Love

    please my fellow country men and women, the fact still remains that these incidentS have gotten out of the hands of the people that started it, and now they cannot control the people they hired for these mayhem. If I remember vividly well, a former president, made a statement i will never forget when Goodluck was announced as the president of this nation . The man said and I quote ‘ there will be no peace in this country&
    ‘: these same man, took his son’s wedding to Dubai, while Goodluck did his daughter’s own here in Abuja. Now, lets ask ourselves, why he took the wedding abroad? my answer is ‘Fear’. The notherners started it all, I wish d south, east and west will agree for us to be divided, afterall, what do we need the notherners for? We r better of on our own. I pray for d departed souls to rest in peace, amen.

  • X.Y

    i agree with you partially. But we can be united. Not all northerners are bad. God help us.

  • Olamide

    Well The Issue Is End Time Is Near, But My Question Is, if jonathan steps down, do u think the bomb blast will stop? think well on that. lets try and pray to God for his intervention.

  • SHEHU

    this are signs of end time WE need to pray my dear youth let come together and think 90% of those they are killing are youth, when we were kids they said we are leaders of tomorrow and those in power still remain the same and now they are killing us those btw 0yrs-45yrs. where is the future ? one love nigeria youth open ur eye to see

  • Paul G

    The majority of u who blame this on mr president, i wonder what perspective u people are actually checking the ongoings of the country from. This is a terrorist attack which is synonymous to any other country, even the united state was struck sometime ago. What i feel we Nigerians are supposed to be doing, is to help curb or suggest ways at which our security agencies, and individual can assist make this insurgence stop rather than rant about what not. Are you guys aware that in a country like Nigeria, whether u irohen or ur party vote gej or not he can still win the election? But thats not the question first we sympathize with the families and friend who in either ways lost a loved one, may God grant them the fortitude to bear the loss then we wish the injured a quick recovery. Then i’ll beg every other reasonable Nigerian as the BH are the only unreasonable ones now to please avoid certain public gathering i.e. Car parks, gardens and bars as i have a feeling that this easther season will not be funny at all. These faceless bastards are really up to making this season a memorable one for Helpless Nigerians. Be punctual at any important occassion and work with time. Happy easther in advance to u all.

  • Paul G

    God bless Omojuwa for coming up with such plattform. May ur yrs be long.

  • Michael Duke

    It’s only the devil that will recognize one of his kind. If Jonathan is evil,that means you are the devil and you’ve got no reason to be jealous of or to criticize your own kind. Get the plank outa your own eyes before you head for the little speck in the eyes of another dude.@Ogbu keneth.
