Dear President Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari I hope you are satisfied at what your selfishness has cost the Nation. You refused to sign the electoral bill and make card reader admissible in court.
Well citizens have been killed, others abducted, properties destroyed.

Either Nigerians were fooling us all, or those who were screaming on social media were fake accounts cos before elections, they made it seem even @MBuhari's wife wouldn't vote for him. Now oluman has been re-elected comfortably, although turnout was very low. #NigeriaHasDecided
