The battle was long but focused to rescue our land from the grips of darkness. The dawn of a new nation is here. The true winner is Nigeria and her citizens. The Lord has finally looked down upon us to favour us. The country has recorded progress. History has been made.
We have indeed made history, we have shown the world that we can decide what it is right for our society without violence.
A few Good men!
I am so proud of these men. GMB, JEGA, GEJ. THEY ARE MY MEN OF THE MOMENT. Grateful to the Almighty that we experienced this season for all the revelations that we saw. There are still a few good men in our society. These are people to be celebrated. Our positive role models.
He has acted honourably. Worth recognition. if he did not take that simple step we would have been singing a different song by now. It is a sign of strength not weakness. I doff my hat to GEJ.
I forgave Jonathan really and truly. It showed he is a peace loving man contrary to his accursed cronies that must have been misinforming him. I wish him well. He allowed us to write History by not using the power of incumbency to the hilt. Kudos.
Jega taught me a lesson in calmness and emotional intelligence. I need say no more. I hope we all saw that display of shame. Sometimes silence is golden.
GMB for his resilience, doggedness and determination to realise his ambition of bringing sanity to our society! My prayer for him is that may he finish strong!!
Nigeria, My Pride!!!
I am proud once again to be a Nigerian and to be part of this struggle to reinstate sanity in our polity.
I am proud of the South westerners see the results from this region. It showed true democracy. Freedom of choice. KUDOS.
Look at Orubebe. He made Jonathan look bad. Whereas GMB won through his followers that worked tiredlessly to make him look good. They engaged in intelligent debates, strategically turned a seemingly bad product into a saviour that the masses were clamouring for.
On the contrary, GEJ supporters fought dirty. Did not engage in tactical battles hence their defeat last Saturday. Let us all learn from this. Let us pick our battles. Yes! Now is the big task of delivering on the change agenda. Let us all join hands and support our govt. Death to genocide, wars, kidnappings and violence! Banish corruption and indiscipline, alive to decency, charity and public spiritedness. Welcome the New Nigeria! welcome change
The struggle continues!!
The real work is about to start in earnest. We need to support this dispensation by being upright and leading a disciplined, decent and resourceful life. May we be helped tremendously. amen
We need to promote harmony and unity. Live and let others live. We need to be tolerant of each other. Preach love and charity. My 2 pennies.
Now every Nigerian must come together to ensure the change agenda is sustained, we must support the new president elect. Lets embrace change, let us imbibe decency and honest lifestyle.
I will do my bits, what about you? let’s start now… a journey of a thousand miles starts with a simple single step

My Amiable Aunt,
Well spoken and appropriately written. Like I’ve always said to you; you will be part of the instrument to be used for the good CHANGE we deserve in this country. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh…. God bless Nigeria, God bless our newly elected President Muhammad Buhari (rtd) and his co fellows. God bless Former Pres. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan too; that humble and loyalty he displayed at his exit will never be forgotten. That has really saved the country a very bad situation that would have possibly escalated into critical violence, if not another repetition of Biara…. Fellow Nigerians; this is not the time to merry or excited, it’s TIME to stay focus, clean up and dust out dirty closet, then take the lead with our individual responsibilities. We all have roles to play, don’t sit idol and except President Muhammad Buhari to turn to physical Jesus Christ while expecting him to turn your one loaf into surplus. Change is a process, it has began already and the process is limitless. Welcome aboard, Nigeria. SIJ

One thing I will strongly advise GMB and his administration. He should not underestimate the brain and connect of the youths at all. 90% of major proposal and intending projects those corrupt politicians uses in looting the country’s fund is given by the young chaps. But our old men would never want the job done… SIJ
April 2, 2015 at 12:41 am
Thaanks dear Jimmy. We shall get there. Our Country will be great again. Godbless Nigeria
April 2, 2015 at 12:56 am
Hmmmm. ..busy bcbee.A bee brings about change in a constructively busy manner, turning nectar to honey for the benefit of the many….including itself. may our activities hence forth bring honey to our land AMEN. Busy BC Bee…pls make more honey :-))
April 2, 2015 at 3:15 am
Well said aunty,but sincerely,I have said it countlessly, Buhari from history itself can’t treat us with so much impunity and disregard as Jonathan,truly majority of Nigerians would forgive for the glorious exit he chosed rather than create tantrum buh how can we easily forget the fuel price increase on Jan 1st that eventually cost some Nigerians their lives,how can we easily forget his stance on Farouk Lawan, Deprieye Alamieseigha, Stella Oduah, Deziani Maduekwe and most recently the Ekiti polls sham. My rancour with Jonathan has simply not being presidential, you can’t eat your cake and have it,he picked his friends and aides so or how can we explain the shiw of shame paraded by his wife, Femi Fani Kayode, even Okupe that just ooens his mouth cos he has never uttered anything responsible,constructive or meaningful,and he was his moyth piece so he made his bed,he has to lie on it but we chose to let go,he has exited his inglorious administration in a glorious manner so all is pardoned.
Hmmmmmm,anything but Jonathan was my clamour and now that this has been achieved,I pray this new administration to truly commit the affairs of this nation into the hands of worthy pilots,a round peg in a round hole in all sectors,hence, it would tow the part of his predecessor, we want honest amd visible reforms in all sectors, tangible alleviation of poverty to improve the link ing conditions of the poor,,the resources of our dear nation equitably and responsibly shared and managed, stamping out corruption and indeed making corrupt individuals that have held Nigeria hostage and brought her to her knees pay for their greed and wickedness and alas, I want my President to be Presidential by distancing himself from those that have questionable characters…..the greatest undoing of Mr Jonathan
April 2, 2015 at 7:45 am
Wonderful and progressive words.You are role model.All hands should be on deck to consolidate this achievement. It is one Nigeria and a choice have been made.Expectedly ,our refineries will once again start working,our economy will pick up as we have earned our respect back with the esterblishment of true and matured democracy.Long live Nigeria.
April 2, 2015 at 10:32 am
I totally share your thought without any reservation, however, my fear has been how GMB will survive the lower and upper cut from Jagaban and tactical claws of the Ota elder stateman.
Iam deeply grateful to God inspite of partial stroke which has threatened my life for 5months for keeping me alife to see the new democratic Nigeria.
Welldone BC for your inspiring patrotic views and call to action
April 2, 2015 at 12:00 pm
Inspirational and truth embedded. We need to start telling ourselves the truth to assist each other. That is the only way forward. Our south south and south east btothers should see every other Nigerians as one nation one accord. Nice write up. Charles Bamidele
April 2, 2015 at 12:46 pm
The euphoria about Buhari should stop because the Work is much and for Buhari and his team they must give Nigeria institution that will survive personalities…which will be an enduring legacy…
April 2, 2015 at 12:48 pm
true talk. Thanks for your comments
April 2, 2015 at 12:50 pm
Well said! Nigeria made Africa proud, and as a people we should all pray and play our part to support the government to realise the Nigeria of our dreams.
April 2, 2015 at 6:30 pm
This is an excellent write up that captures all the issues pertaining to the elections. GMB’s victory is a victory for democracy.
Now the electorate will have faith that the system works and that the power of incumbency cannot withstand the will of the people if they do not enjoy the dividends of democracy. Let it be a lesson to all especially the incoming government. They need to hit the ground running and deliver on the promise of CHANGE!!
May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!!

It pleases my heart to see the quest for change in the hearts of Nigerians home and abroad. The change is long overdue. We have also shown that we have a voice in our votes and so we chose the man who is passionate about Nigeria, about governance , about change. This indeed is true democracy. Congratulations to all Nigerians!! May God guide our president elect and surround him with people of integrity. God bless Nigeria!!
April 3, 2015 at 5:22 am
Thanks Sister for that lovely piece. The Lord will rescue our land as you have rightly said. Change has began, I mean positive change. I give glory to Almighty God for allowing peaceful transition. God Bless Nigeria. God bless us. I am quite sure that you will be part of this positive change by the grace of God. Welcome on board.
April 3, 2015 at 4:01 pm
… The moment is finally here!… Reality is just sinking in… Your piece accurately gauge the mood of the nation right now!… As we congratulate GMB for presenting and making himself available as the vehicle of Change, we should also not forget people like you in the GMB’s #CHANGETeam who worked tirelessly and refused to give up even in the face of intimidation and harassment, even at the risk of of your dear lives and personal peril… I celebrate you and others who made this happen… You are actually the “WINNERS”… and deserving of the euphoria of the victory that herald the occasion like GMB said in his acceptance speech…
… and to GEJ, I say Kudos for accepting defeat in the face of his hawkish team who wanted him to do otherwise… But I reject the heroism now being bestowed on him as if he has a better option than to accept… I have never seen anyone else who wants to gain from a losing position… Yes, he accepted because he is wise to know his king will dance naked when the chips are down… Gbagbo of Cote D’ivore is still fresh in our memory…
My sister, don’t let me taint your victory with partisanship… Celebrate because you all deserve it!… It is your moment!… and remember it is a long journey to the real change we deserve in this nation…
… The journey has just begun!…

The work is just beginning..the Masses from the North and South, Christians and Muslims believe in the Unity of Our Great Nation. They have voted for Peace and Progress of Nigeria and rejected Rigging, Corruption and Tyranny….
Nigeria needs Men and Women of Good Character, Integrity, Hard Work, and a geniune love of Nigeria..lets all put hands on deck..

The message cannot be any well put. Change came about by the choice of the people, sustainable change requires both the singular and collective choice of the same people, the success of our nation is in our hands and not GMB alone. We have chosen him to manage the affairs and direct the cause now let’s all walk on the same path with a common goal to achieving success. This is a defining moment in our nations history where a selective few good men have demonstrated leadership and the people of Nigeria have shown Africa and the world that we have duly matured in our politics. The real work begins, all of us must roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty in our effort to transform our great land.
Long live Nigeria and GOD bless her people.
April 7, 2015 at 7:43 am
My dear sister,thanks for this piece.
The 2015 campaigns and the Presidential elections of 28 march 2015 have become a college of leadership,politics,psychology,philosophy where students (Nigerians especially) can learn.
I join you to congratulate Nigeria
April 7, 2015 at 12:13 pm
Well Said BC! GEJ made us all proud! I hope other African leaders will learn from this remarkable lesson. As your country starts its new journey of change, may God bless Nigeria
April 7, 2015 at 2:23 pm
Good and realistic sum up of the Nigerian Presidential Election. Resilience and positivity of Nigerians displaced.
More importantly, Nigerian third leg of full definition of Democracy realized, that is, 1)The Goverment of the People, 2)By the People and 3)FOR THE PEOPLE.
Full dividends of Democracy can only be realized if the Elected have the FEAR of the Electorate for none performance. This has come to past for the first time in Nigerian history.

Nigerians deeply proud Nigerians.My British lecturer said this about us,i quote ‘Put a Nigerian in the midst of 10 other Africans in London oxford street,the Nigerian is distinct’ in walking and talking,very loud and not suppressable”.
Several things happened to diminish our pride,most notable was the rag tag incoherent murderers and rapists called Boko Haram.They dealt a psycological blow to our being and diminish us as a people, as they were allowed free reign.They stole our girls.Yes i believe our hour of redemption is come.We shall walk tall again as the forces of darkness have been eclipsed by light of God.Pls give me back my green passport,am happy to be a visitor to other universe but proudly made in Nigeria.
