Fellow Nigerians, I want you to take note of the followings that will unavoidably happen under the Buhari-led government in 2016.

1. Workers Strike: There will be so much industrial unrest, especially

in the first quarter of the year.
2. Subsidy: There will be removal of fuel subsidy and petrol (PMS)

will sell over and above N100/litre, leaving the masses in more

serious hardship. Product will not be available and long queue in

petrol stations will persist throughout the first quarter of 2016 and

beyond.
3. Electricity: Power generation will drop to the lowest ebb. Still,

Federal Government will increase tariff in 2016.
4. Unemployment: Millions of jobs will be lost in 2016 as against the

three million jobs promised by the APC yearly. Most States and Federal

Government will retrench workers as evident in the over 2,000 Federal

University workers already sacked.
5. Economic Policy: Most private owned middle-class businesses will

fold up because of bad economic policies of the Buhari-led government.

6. Devaluation: The Naira will continue to have a free fall which will

take it to as low as N320 to one Dollar.
7. Economy: The Buhari-led FG will have no solution to country's

economic problems.
8. Security: Boko Haram will keep spreading and the Shiite Muslims

will get more emboldened.
9. Human Rights: Penchant for dictatorship will rise with rampant

human rights abuses and disobedience to court orders.

10. Anti-Corruption: Insincerity in the fight against corruption will

continue and the fight will not only be selective and political, but

targeted more at Southerners.
11. Elections: Attempt to forcefully control any of the South South

States of Akwa Ibom, Rivers and Bayelsa by the APC will lead to

unprecedented deaths.
12. Economy: Crude oil price will fall to below and about $30 per barrel.

13. Anti-Press Laws: The masses, especially men of the media

profession will rise against the FG's plot to deny Nigerians of their

rights to freedom of expression. There will wide condemnations by

Nigerians and the International community against President Buhari's

human rights abuses and disobedience to court orders.

14. Polity: Renewed efforts will be made to remove Senator Bukola

Saraki as the Senate President; this will not only fail, but will heat

the polity.
15. Hardships: Nigerians will experience more hardships. The President

himself attested to this (THE SUN newspaper Tuesday, December 15,

2015). This obviously negates the change Nigerians voted for.

16. Elections: Plot by the APC to take control of at least one South

South State will lead to death of many people. Particularly, rerun

elections in Rivers and Akwa-Ibom States will cause many deaths.

17. Corruption: Halliburton scam may be revisited in 2016.

19. Kogi State: Court will sack Governor-Elect, Yahaya Bello.

Bayelsa State: Governor Seriake Dickson will win the supplementary election.

Taraba State: Governor Darius Ishaku will be victorious at the Court.

20. Politics: There will be subtle political alignment and realignment

before the end of the year ahead of 2019 elections.
