    • How I wish Nigeria as a Nation can choose to play, pulse, fast farword and or rewind her life just the way we do with most of our Electronics gadgets . I would have choose to either Rewind to a tenure which was more concerned with the plight of its masses and Pulse, Or rather, Fast farword this present tenure and NEVER to Play it again.
