    Why won’t Nigerians be excited… The failure of the administration compels even those in APC to agree with Atiku who was also a founding member of the APC and the values it held at the time of inception

    When you have an administration that have borrowed more money in three years than the PDP administration of 16years with no single project to show… Even Buhari’s wife will tell her husband’s administration is corrupt and filthy…
