“Please Nigerian government, is it that we don’t have a southerner or easterner major generals ?? Just thinking though 🤔”

“When the wailers wail, we just smile. Does any of you know how critical the position of COAS is? If anybody mistakenly appoint an Easterner to that position, what happened in Sudan & the current situation in Mali will be childs play compared to what will ensue in Nigeria.”

“As usual another northerner the only northerner we had as a president that wasn’t tribalistic is YARADUA this BUHARI kind of leadership will never unite this country he is too biased.and you people are preaching one Nigeria”

“Name a Southerner that has his profile or that is next in ranking to be COAS. Nonsense”

“I went through his profile and it wowed my mind, it’s true that federal character is not respected in our security chief arrangements but when you talk about competency, Farouk Yahaya’s antecedence speaks volume.”

“You can appoint whoever you want but please tell your oga to stop fighting corruption, at least in this his own way. Ese gan! We are grateful o”

“Is high time the presidency stop informing the citizens how they run the affairs of this country. Let them continue. One niguria”

“Northern system of government, that’s what we are experiencing at the moment.”
