  1. Enlarge the place of thy tent,
    and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations:
    spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
    President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, God is Telling you
    to Enlarge Nigeria, the presidential debate between you
    and buhari should not be a promble to you, cause God has
    announced you the winer.

  2. If Buhari is bokoharam why can’t Jonathan arrest him? ?.. foolish people! We thought nigerians are smart people among us in Africa. I should have known that most of you are goats. ….
    try to divide Nigeria and see the greatest festival of blood ovoid
