    The Security in Nigeria should monitor the activities of some former presidents, and former rulers because they are the sponsors of Boko Haram, They should monitor IBB, Buhari and others I am not accusing them, but why is it that they feel that no body else can rule Nigeria, only them. When they were ruling, nobody bombed any area for any agitation, but today they are complaining of western education of which all of them have passed through it. All resources are coming from the south and yet they don’t want the south south to govern. Nigeria is not only for the north, Nigeria is for all Nigerians. The North has rules Nigeria for over 40 – 45 years and they do not want other to even sit on that seat. May God help us.
