    So residents apart from the burden of struggling for their daily bread will still go through another burden of being vigilant and security conscious in their neighborhood while some so called officers are paid for not doing their job well. God help the poor masses.

    Nigerians need to be vigilant since the intelligence agencies have decided we must be destroyed. We will see if members of Buhari’s entourage are owned by G7 like the spies in Nigeria depending on the decisions Buhari makes at the G7 meeting. One can always let the president know he cannot trust the people around him if the ideas given to the president only benefits the West. Ajaokuta steel plant has been sabotaged by the IMF/World Bank.

    All refineries in Nigeria made to fail so that the IMF agents in Nigeria can accumulate money from importation of petroleum products to the detriment of Nigerians. The money is used to finance covert operations in Nigeria like sponsoring IMF agents into political office. When the Western countries decide to strike Nigeria like they did with Iraq or Syria, as long as we are importing fuel, we would not be able to put a Fighter jet in the air, talk less of a tank or moving troops around the country.

    This is one of the reasons they sabotaged the refineries and made Jonathan’s government dependent on importation of petroleum. Its a systematic disintegration of Nigeria starting with breaking her strength down. The only thing stopping them is they realize they cannot control a black crowd no matter what they do. They cannot do the Iraqi thing in Nigeria. We would tear them down to pieces regardless of their military superiority thus they developed Boko Haram, using other blacks to do the dirty work.
