Hmmm,if i had to vote at this coming elections,i would indeed vote for Buhari,simply cos i feel he is far better than Goodluck Jonathan.But Buhari too must bear the blame for some shortcomings in Nigeeria.The unlawful jailing's of journalists and jailing politicians from the east and south west of the country ,while the Northerners were given house arrests and even overlooked are some of
Buhari's shortcomings.Another thing Buhari may be guilty of is curtailing progress in Lagos State.Buhari has been accused of the reason why traffic is so bad in Lagos,cos he stopped the Metroline project innitiated by the Jakande government of Lagos State.

The Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, Jumoke Akinjide, says the people of Lagos State should blame the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) for the heavy traffic motorists face every day. She said when Buhari was the Head of State between December 1983 and August 1985, he terminated the Lagos Metroline project initiated by the Alhaji Lateef Jakande administration to ease traffic in the metropolis. Akinjide said this in a statement on Monday Dec,29.
She went on to say by so doing, Buhari truncated the opportunity of a free-flow of traffic within the metropolis and by extension, the economic growth of the South-West.

 She said the countries that were nowhere near the growth attained by the South-West when the APC presidential candidate stopped Metroline project had since advanced to become world economic powers. 
She said the Lagos metro rail line was designed by the Jakande government to facilitate transport within Lagos and its surroundings but was terminated when Buhari military regime took over.

She said,

 “The visionary Jakande administration had concluded all the plans to finance the Metroline project, putting everything in place for its successful execution. My father provided the legal frame work in his capacity as the Attorney General at the time, and the state government had deposited $50m after securing a $450m loan at six per cent fixed interest rate for 25 years.”
