What is the reason behind you supporting GMB or GEJ?

Is the country still one as many claims? I stand on a neutral ground because all I want and wish for my people is oneness, where everyone will understand that we are all equal before God Almighty. I have studied the case of the two contesting personalities vying for the post of the first citizen of the mother country Nigeria. I found this amazing but not surprised at my findings.

Reasons; when you see yourself been surprised at all times by the manner at which we humans do things, this truly means that you will always be quick to judge, get carried away and easily come's to conclusions about people. So, have no reason to be surprised why because life itself is full of surprises, so why get worked-up with surprises from people's actions? For every south-south, south-east, some percentage of south-west, middle-belt and little percent of North; its all about President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan(GEJ), 80 percent of all this are christians, while 20 percent or 15 are muslims.

Then, for General Mohammadu Buhari(GMB) 70 percent are from North, while South-South, South-East, South-West, Middle-Belt share 10 percent and they are christians, remaining 20 percents are muslims from other parts like South-west or Middle-Belt or South-South or South-East.

These are all pure facts and evident how the trends are moving in the country between these two personalities vying for the post of the first citizen. Question for us is; is this a curse of religious sentiment or ethnicity, background or individual personality in terms of leadership qualities among the two? Why have each of the contestants have lesser support from the religious entity where he is not from and have full support from the religious and ethnic entity where he come's from?

The same religious and ethnic supporters, why have they not seen anything good about the candidates that is not from the same domain with them? This took me time to fashion out, hoping that, reasonable answers will be provided. Reasons for this, is because we are looking for solutions to use and save our dear country.

I am from North, South, East or West, is not the solution that we need, all that is required is true and pure mindsets who understands that there is only and one true God. Religious sycophant, fanatics or ethnic ideas are not required.

Be constructive with your ideas. We hope for a better Nigeria, if only we believe in one true Nigeria.

God bless!!
