Nigerians React To Obama’s Speech On Nigerian Elections

by

The United States of America’s president, President
Barrack Obama earlier yesterday had some words of
advice for Nigerians as we head into elections week.
He had in his message urged Nigerians to vote in a
President who could secure the nations security for
the upcomming years.
His speech took Nigerians by suprise, especially as
the countdown to the national polls is only some days
away.
One of the first comments on the video’s comments
section was from a user named Frank Onoms, He
wrote: Seriously Obama is wasting his time. The
president of Nigeria is so desperate for power and he is
willing to hang on even after death and as for Nigerians
they do not want change as suffering and smiling coupled
with oppression is their destiny so they see no harm in
what the present government is doing.
Dr Paul Oke was positive for the attention the leader of
the free world was giving the most populous black
nation on earth.
He wrote: Thank you President Obama for your great
message which will go a long way to foster unity before,
during and after the coming election. You’re truly a world
president and we appreciate your support and great job
toward keeping the world to be in peace. God bless USA,
UK and all friends of Nigeria and God bless more
abundantly Federal Republic of Nigeria.
A Google+ user named Amaka wrote: Thank you Mr
President.Lets all be courageously optimistic about the
upcoming elections. Our future is in our hands.
On one of Nigeria’s popular media forum, one user
who goes by the name of Dapo wrote: While the speech
is very eloquent, I find it a bit hypocritical of the US to
claim to be a friend of Nigeria and assume a big brother
stance, when it was very quick to desert us in time of
need.
However, If I correctly understand Obama’s subtle
nuances, from 1:50-1:53 of the video, it seemed like he
was encouraging voting for GEJ. He says, “By casting
your ballot, you can help secure your nation’s progress”.
Any contrary ideas?
While another user who supports the APC wrote: This is
the time for us we undo the mistake we made. Another
opportunity is staring us straight in the eyes. Era of ‘I had
no shoes’ has passed. New era has come. New dawn
and new Nigeria that me and you can be proud of. We are
getting there!
Another user calle Seawy praised the recognition: God
bless USA, Obama and Nigeria nation. Saturday counts in
our country, pls vote wisely. Boko Haram must go, killing
must stop…you vote counts
One user with an unsavoury name rounds it up for us
and wrote:
You Must be more careful when America has interest in
your country…I can trace all troubles of the world to
America..they told us Iraq had weapons of mass
destruction..na lie. Why haven’t they struck Iran or North
Korea…they know those nations have and any repeat of
Iraq will be suicidal for them. Many other nations abound
that America is covertly fuelling crisis…syria, Yemen, Iran,
Palestine /Israel Feud.
All troubles are from there. I fear for this message…
France and many other nations are having elections this
year…why Nigeria..afraid is catching meee ooo.
The message has been one of the most talked about
suprise messages in a while, with critics analyzing
and saaying whom they think Obama wants as
Nigerian head for the next 4 years.
