avowed corruption fighter, Buhari is now under moral burden to save

Nigeria from needless stagnation arising from his heath challenges

misadventure and Nigerians are worse for it. They say they are

his integrity.‎ His absence allows others to suppress and oppress

others and that means he is allowing others ‎ to suppress their fellow

human beings.‎ There are many governments in one and they are

clueless.‎ We need an active president going by our numerous

challenges. ‎How long will Nigerians wait for an incapacitated

have any bad blood against Buhari Osinbajo has no powers without the

president. He owes us the duty to tell us the state ‎of his health,"

the governor said.

loans," he added.

whole set up was a blackmail against former President Goodluck

Jonathan, adding that one day, the true story would be revealed.

insurgents and herdsmen than in any other period in the history of

despite the atrocities perpetrated across the country.
