    This presidency appear to be blind and deaf to the sufferings of the Nigerian masses. What do they need another aircraft for in a country where over 100 million are looking for food to eat? God will help us to push PDP out in 2015

    I don’t want to believe this because it seems one need to wait patiently and confirm the authenticity of news that has to do with government and governance in this country. However, if this is true then we should keep praying more to God to have mercy on us and act wisely and justly come 2015 election… We must vote in the right person, knowing fully well that party doesn’t really matter but personality does. We’ve got to perform our civic right wisely and justly by not putting our future in jeopardy. God Bless Nigeria
