Buhari can afford to toy and trifle with academic lives of Nigerians because, being a stark illiterate, he does not know the value of education. allowing the students for external exams at this time, when will the exams be taken, and where is the time for the preparations for the exams. Buhari has the right to manipulate Nigerians the way he likes but he has no such privilege to manipulate the academic calendar set by international education body.

Those in charge of covid 19 team are only doing this for their self interestedness, because they know how much is coming in their pockets concerning this covid 19 time, how can they compare malaria with covid 19 to be the same, if president Buhari is not careful this people will finish the country economy, by announcing the malaria patience as covid 19 effect. every body is suffering for malaria symptoms. pls I beg our president to evaluate the committee team very well and asked Efcc to checkmate their bank account, and they should stop messing up with Nigerians and also delaying the progress of this country. if you can see what is happening right now, as schools and other businesses have been said to have close, most of our students are involving in dubious character and death is toiling all over, our school are lapidated and out of date. pls God punish those leaders who are trying to wicked the poors who are in the low class and have no said in this country, we look unto you our Lord and God.
