OMG! Twitter Handle Condoles @aishambuhari Over The Death Of Her Husband?

Death rumours trailing ailing Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari continues to swirl on social media as the Nigerian presidency remains vague on the true health status of the country’s leader.

Eric Joyce, a politician in the United Kingdom and former soldier, has taken to a micro-blogging website to announce the death of President Buhari, who has not been seen in public since May 7, 2017, when he met with 82 recently freed Chibok schoolgirls. That evening, the presidency announced he was leaving Nigeria for London on an indefinite medical trip.

“Very sad to learn [hear] of the death of President Buhari, whom I campaigned for. Thoughts with his wife @aishambuhari and family,” the former member of the UK parliament wrote on Twitter on Friday, May 19, 2017.

“The president of one of the world’s largest and most sensitive countries died in London today,” the Scottish politician continued. “In our main news bulletins, not a word.”
The president of one of the world's largest and most sensitive countries died in London today.In our main news bulletins, not a word.
Very sad to learn hear of the death of President Buhari, whom I campaigned for. Thoughts with his wife @aishambuhari and family. 
His tweets were curiously ignored by the ever-vocal All Progressives Congress supporters, just as the Nigerian presidency kept mute about the president’s condition.
Following responses from Nigerians and people around the world, Mr. Joyce penned an editorial on Saturday, published on his website, in which he called out Buhari’s handlers for a sloppy response to these death rumours and the Western media for ignoring the story.
“For two days, some sources have been reporting that President Buhari has died in a London hospital. Other sources, including the presidency, have been denying this, but not very convincingly,” he wrote
“A general rule of thumb for any leader anywhere is that if people think you’re dead then you get yourself on the telly alive, immediately. So maybe there’s a bit of a temporary cover-up involved? And if there is, it’s hard to imagine the UK’s security service (‘Mi5) doesn’t know about it and have folk all over the place inside the hospital in question.
“The most striking thing in all of this is that the UK media doesn’t seem to give a toss either way – few outlets have published anything at all on the subject.
“It’s Africa and not a famine; it’s Nigeria but not corruption, you see. No NGO comment or interest necessary.
“UK coverage of Africa is dominated by white journalists who pop from country to country and claim special knowledge. The news agencies are populated by young white journalists working in effect as stringers, often little more than kids taking a year out having a wee adventure. The NGOs who work mainly on Africa are so white it’s a disgrace. Perhaps if each employed a few more Africans we’d get some decent and serious coverage of that continent.
“For now, we can just wait and wonder on the fate of a president in London,” he wrote.
Following interest from many Nigerians, he penned another editorial on Sunday, May 21, 2017, titled, Nigeria: It’s For A President To Prove He’s Alive, Not His People To Prove He’s Not. 
“First, if you’re a president then it’s up to you to show people you’re alive and well – it’s not up to your people to prove the opposite. Every politician in the world knows this,” Mr. Joyce wrote.
“A statement from a PR guy doesn’t cut it. Angry ripostes from supporters don’t cut it. Only your personal appearance cuts it.
“Second, if you’re a president and you’re not well, then a doctor needs to come out of the hospital and explain to your nation what’s up. This let’s everyone, including your people and the markets, know if your alive at all, alive enough to recover or have just sprained an ankle.
“Unless these things apply, then there will be shenanigans,” he maintained.
The Nigerian presidency has not responded to these new assertions

Virgin Atlantic Airways Exits Nigerian Market, Sacks All Nigerian Cabin Crew, Close Down Call Centre

According to news reports, Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of length of service will be paid. The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 in number.

The Semen-Drinking Sambian Tribe Of Papua New Guinea!

To become a man in this primitive Sambian tribe in Papua New Guinea, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.The isolation they encounter not only prevent the boys from having any sexual activities with women, but also from seducing, or being seduced by married women. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, a sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely. They also regularly incur vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane.
Older men now tell the boys that the bachelors (warriors) are going to copulate with them orally in order to make them grow. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio (blowjob) to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manh…

Donald Trump Blasts President Buhari, Says His Priority Is The Full Introduction Of Islam, The Annihilation Of His Political Opponents And Absolute Extermination Of The People Of The Old Eastern Nigeria.

I Trust the US Republican presidential hopeful for being blunt! He said; ''no sensible president continuously travels round the globe while his country is in terrible hardship and economic mess.''
He continued; ''It can only happen in Nigeria where all that matters to the President is the full introduction of Islam, annihilation of his political opponents and absolute extermination of the people of the old Eastern Nigeria
Buhari, prior to his questionable victory at the polls as the President of Nigeria made lots of promises which he has obviously failed to keep and in most cases denied.
As a matter of fact, change could either be ‘positive’ OR ‘negative. To the earlier misconception of Nigerians and current state of the economy as a result of initiation of impracticable economic policies, it wouldn’t be wrong to assert that what president Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians was a NEGATIVE CHANGE.
If Nigeria is a country made up of…
