Nigerians have taken to the social media to compare the first five years of Nigeria’s two recent presidents, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari.
GWG recalls that during the administration of President Jonathan, that the issue of insecurity was also a contentious issue with Boko Haram becoming a menace that forced many Nigerians to look behold the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Buhari as a Messiah to solve the crisis.
However, since the advent of the administration of President Buhari, according to many observers, nothing special has been done to address the issue of insecurity as it has reared more ugly heads across the country.
A cross section of Nigerians took to the Micro-blogging platform to express their views and GWG captured some of them.

Nigerians now pray for the life we were made to reject by Buhari. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is an archangel compared to Buhari. God bless Jonathan!”

It corrupts the best and attracts the worst. Power should be given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up. “
