“To be honest, you cannot help but promote Buhari. I mean he cried a few years ago for Nigeria. Now Reverend Fathers are crying…… Sincerely speaking, for a retired soldier in the Nigerian Army who has just one wife, even though his religion allows him to marry more; for an ex President who declares his assets publicly with no foreign account; for an attractive man who can boost of having no girlfriend or mistress in a world where having extra marital affairs is the order of the day. And during all these time, the devil has not possessed any of his worshippers to blackmail him. There must be something interesting about this person, and Nigerians want to learn such discipline from this personality. This is not a campaign, this is an intriguing mystery we want to be part of”.
