  1. Ok so we agree that Jonathan and PDP were not mentally prepared for defeat, but Buhari and APC were also not prepared for Governance, in case they won. That is why all we have heard from Buhari and APC for the past 6 months is Jonathan did this and Jonathan didn’t do that.
    My advice to Mr. President and his band of merry men, get to work and let the past be exactly that…the past and stop groping around looking for the next excuse to explain away your gross incompetence and cluelessness..#Yeyedeysmell..
