Whether we like it or not, the so-called R-APC can't be discounted. They are part of the system and if we see realignments of parties like in 2014, they may win and Nigeria will, once again, be set back decades behind any serious country. I am not happy, just stating the fact.
Again, there is nothing like a single northern bloc, the minorities in N/Nigeria had suffered enough. And this time round, there is growing interest for ppl to get PVC and vote out a govt, they feel does not only marginalized them, but has shown zero interest in their well-being.
Another thing that may play into the hands of the opposition is, military campaigns against #BH is reduced to more than 70% in the raining season and there has been a steady surge in attacks in Dec. Jan. Feb. in the last four yrs. This season, coincides with campaigns elections?

There r multiple conflicts either in advanced stages or simmering across the #LakeChad & Bakasi regions in West & Central African regional belts. These include the #BokoHaram, #Herdsmen attacks, the unfolding separatist war in Cameroon and several other pockets of instability
The multiple conflicts should concern us all. The region cannot afford another war in addition to the lingering conflict over #climatechange and #BokoHaram. The consequences of escalating conflicts in these territories are dire. The regions are on the verge of an implosion.
There is also a growing interest of IS in escalating conflicts in the #Sahel and #LakeChad regions. Either out of ignorance or poor grasp of strategic regional issues, the various govts in the regions are steadily playing to bring to pass the expectations of these warmongers.

Dear President @MBuhari, I hope this meets you well. I don’t know if you remember me. My name is Simon. @simonkolawole. Never mind. We will come to that later. Let us briefly journey into history for proper context into why I have chosen to openly write you this morning.
In February 2001, I finally met you. I had been appointed the editor of TheWeek, I was looking for a great interview. You came to mind, I met you at your house in Jabi, Kaduna, and we had a very good interview. Remember me now? You said something that reinforced my belief in you.
You said what #Nigeria lacked was leadership. You promised to provide that leadership. I became a self-appointed volunteer and started fighting your cause in the media. You were not the darling of the so-called Lagos-Ibadan press, but I never make my decisions based on the crowd.
