You praised me when i called Goodluck Ebele Jonathan incompetent, clueless and inept. You insult me for calling Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari incompetent, clueless and inept.
Why?
PERSONAL INCLINATION?
Are we not facing the same injustice? Is it because you have access to power? pic.twitter.com/7rQNpeVxnW

That the President is old enough to be my father is not the reason I should not criticise him & make demands. It is about fighting for justice & God has enjoined us to stand firm even against ourselves & our parents to fight injustice!
Why are you focused on personal inclination? pic.twitter.com/V9GwjsoGGy

That the President is today a Muslim like myself is not a reason that i should not criticise and make demands on him. That i voted for the President in 2015 is not a reason i should not criticise the President.
IT SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT PERSONAL INCLINATION!
ITS ABOUT JUSTICE! pic.twitter.com/e8Ew5kgRtn
