Congratulations to GEJ for having the humility to explore all and every other way put an end to the madness of religious insurgency. The race must now be on to entrench personal pride in all our Northern brethren in the values that make us Nigerians. I’d like to take this time to urge the leadership to do what is right for our people and not for themselves. Provide the health and social infrastructure we envy in the developed nations around the world. We must wrestle pride in ourselves and our own ways of life. Greetings to all including those of our brethren misled into the falsehoods of Boko Haram.’’

Asuquo Bassey said: ‘’Congratulations and well done to our gallant soldiers for the victories so far achieved. I request you all our dear soldiers to finish the war quickly by flushing out all Boko Haram terrorists from the remaining local government areas in Borno State and also clear the Sambisa and other forests that serve as dens for Boko Haram terrorists. May Almighty God bless Our Armed forces, Mr President, Nigeria and Africa especially our friendly neighbouring countries in Jesus Name, Amen. Cheers and congrats.

Ibiwari Fred said: ‘’How is this negativity and criticism helping us, our soldiers need our support in any way we can, they’ve put their blood, sweat and tears in this. I commend their effort, nonetheless, we shall conquer this foe in due time, the insurgency will surely come to an end.’’

Chinwe Davis: ‘’Most of them haven’t even held or seen a gun, but all they do is criticize, our soldiers are trying. Its not easy at all.’’

On Nwachi’s part he said: ‘’I am happy that many Nigerians are seeing where Dr. Goodluck is taking us to and I pray those political rejects in APC should put the nation first before self. It is also time to vote out oppressive governors.’’

Bello Isah believes that: ‘’At the end of the day, the PDP shall sing songs of victory.’’

Ndubuisi Ezi reacted thus: ‘’Bad move that can’t change God’s will for poor masses. Atiku tried it with dollars and Buhari floored him at the primaries. God is on the side of the poor masses. If the Lord be for us who can be against us. Pharaoh must allow us go by fire by force. Nigeria must be better, PDP bye bye, 16 years is more than enough to prove a point. Tired of excuses and passing of bulk. Only evil minded enemies of the masses will vote for symbol of failure, glaring corruption, insecurity, poverty, incompetence, deceit, high cost of our God given petroleum products, and patching of roads.

and airports which PDP represents. Stop deceiving Nigerians by promoting evil. For now the cap fits Buhari considering our problem; corruption, transparency and accountability period and Jonathan is far from it. Be wise.’’

I’m not surprised about this, even Atiku is meant to vote for Jonathan on that day.

    at least we can see for our selves that true Nigerians are on the side of progress and are really commending the effort of the government and military in their bid to clear Nigeria of insurgents. Kudos to all you who see the light in the end of the tunnel from onset. I’ll say fafafafaffowl to the opposition for making every news on BH political and constantly calling out on the Nigerian government as if they the government doesnt have any working plan on ground. #GEJ4naija
