    Atiku can never unite the country and he will never be president in Nigeria for condemning the barbaric act of stoning a Christian to death and setting her on fire only to backtrack because some people said they will never vote for him! He will never taste presidency in Jesus name, this time again, he shall labour in vain!!!
