What a Shameful Country: 1985, IBB was the president of Nigeria and our teachers told us that Buhari was also a former Head of State in 1984. Our teacher also called us "the leaders of tomorrow" its about 30 years now, IBB and Buhari are still contesting for Presidency, its either our teacher lied to us about being the leaders of tomorrow, or tomorrow is yet to come, who's fooling who?
