Buhari, the President-Elect so as to avoid being the first victim of Buhari’s government after inauguration in May 29th, 2015. Buhari should know that this is a democracy where there is no privacy for any political leader. When Mrs. Turai Yaradua, the wife of Late President Yaradua, declared that She has power on her husband, Nigeria people told him that her husband, was President of Nigeria people and they ought to know the where about of their President, which shows that no privacy for General Muhammadu Buhari in a democratic setting again until he finishes his term of office in 2019.”
