When the South Africans knew that Nelson Mandela could fix South Africa for them, they did not say that he was too old, or that he had been in prison for 27 year and had, therefore, lost touch with what was going on outside the prison walls, or that he was an ex-convict. They made him their President, and they were not disappointed. He did more than what they had anticipated he would do. He fixed South Africa within the four years’ tenure, and left the Presidency, and watched the fruits of his performance before he died. Nigerians should emulate South Africa and vote General Muhammadu Buhari as President, come 14th February, 2015, in the General Elections. Goodluck E. Jonathan has had six years and has not improved Nigeria, instead Nigeria is in ruins – even infants know that. Even in his campaigns for re-election, he has not been able to defend his inability to handle cases of corruption and insecurity and failure to honour agreements with the organized workers’ union, resulting in many strikes.
Apart from General Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has several other presidential materials who are each better than Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. Things get better not by chance but by change. We assure Nigerians of true change, when they give the APC the anticipated mandate. Ours will not be Jonathan’s transformation from bad to worse. General Muhammadu Bujhari will fix Nigeria in record time.
It is obvious that Electoral Act’s provision for minimum educational qualifications is to ensure that people who are involved in arms of governance have some education to do the needful. I am sure that the educational qualifications of General Muhammadu Buhari are more than the equivalence of WASC. Only nincompoops would say that General Muhammadu Buhari be disqualified on account of paper qualification. Some of those who say so are even been cantankerous
