Buhari came back to Nigeria on 19th August 2017 after more than three months of medical leave in London. On his arrival, instead of apologising to Nigerians for being away for so long, so that the people will believe he has their interest in his heart, he started with threatening words, saying that the unity of this Country is not negotiable, that he has appointed Army chiefs to deal with Biafran Secret Service, Bokoharam e t c , He even made reference to a meeting he claimed to have had with the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu in 2003 where he said he agreed with Ojukwu that Nigeria will remain one.

I begin to imagine how Ojukwu will agree that Nigeria will be one in 2003 and in the Cover Page of News Watch Magazine of 13th September 2004, it is boldly written " I Support Biafra' by the same Ojukwu. Who is fooling who?

How long will this country continue in deceit? The President of this Country called Nigeria should be seen giving speeches in public places, attending official visits and not a recorded speeches, it should not be on the Television and pages of Newspapers alone. If he cannot live up to expectations, he should give way for able and younger people to take over,. That is the essence of democracy and part of fighting corruption. Fighting corruption should not be seen from monetary and political angles alone. They should spread their tentacles when fighting corruption.

In Nigerian Constitution, there is freedom of speech, association e t c but when you speak about certain things that are having negative effect on the Country, they will tag it "hate speech". When you critique the Government for it to sit up, they will come after you, call you Terrorist and so on. This way they instill fear into people who may have something good to speak on to stay away. If they want to deal with hate speakers, they should go after Arewa Youths, and Muhammadu Buhari, who said he will handle Nigerians based on how he was voted into power.
