Buhari actually gave a speech from Cuba yesterday and he was not even standing on his own, I have the evidence right here:
Take a good look at that circled flag, does it look like a Nigerian flag? That’s a Cuba flag.
Take a good look at that Coat of Arm on the wall, that’s not a real Coat of Arm, that’s a sticker.

Take a look at Buhari very closely, there is someone behind supporting him and making sure he stands without stumbling, Buhari is not standing on his own.
I also have the video where Buhari Belched and coughed for many times. Believe me, this video was doctored by the Fulani Caliphate.
Wailers, how far with my candid illustrations?”

Call for Buhari resignation Nigerians react

It is no more news that in the last twenty four hours, the media has been agog with calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign his position as the president of the federal republic of Nigeria.

Although the campaign under the hash tag BuhariResign was birthed by a non Nigerian popularly referred to as Imam of Peace, many Nigerians seem to be in support of the call on the president’s resignation.

Imam of Peace had started by describing the state of insecurity in Nigeria as exemplified by the massive killing of the Nigerian soldiers while the president seems to be no where in sight.

Similarly, he raised eyebrows on the silence of the Nigerian president in addressing Nigerians on the state of things over the present Corona Virus pandemic ravaging the world with Nigeria inclusive.

Imam of peace in his series of tweets believes Nigerians who voted in support of President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress for the second term in office are not indeed patriotic citizens of the West African nation.

Nigerians in their various reactions wish President Buhari resign his position describing the Nation as a failed state.

A tweeter user simply identified as Ola David however expressed pessimism as to the reality of having a sitting Nigerian president or any other elected politician willingly resign from his office.

Meanwhile, it is on record that in May 2013, President Buhari who was at that time the National leader of the Congress for Progressive Change CPC asked the then President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to resign over the increasing rate of insecurity in the nation as kidnapping, cultism, bombings among others continue to increase in geometric progression. Buhari asked Jonathan to “give way to competent hand to govern the country.”

It is unheard of in the history of Nigeria that any sitting president willingly resigned from office. Only time will tell if the Katsina born President Muhammadu Buhari will write his name in the history books by resigning his office.
