We should not be shaky or having a second thought about the capability of President Buhari that he cannot take this country out of its present condition to the promise land.
“It is not easy and we all have a role to play to ensure that our desire Nigeria comes to reality. Buhari can do it, he has done it before and without sentiment, we are all living witness to some of the things he has been doing, especially, in the area of corruption that have eaten deep into the fabrics of everybody.
