Nigerians have continued to react angrily to Tuesday’s statement by President Muhammadu Buhari during his visit to South Africa: “There is a limit to what I can do at 72. Below are some of the reactions on social media:

Kunle Adepoju: Now, I hope you (Buharists and APC supporters) read that headline correctly. It is not a cheap blackmail to pull down ‘His Holiness, Saint of Daura’. It is not a propaganda from Jonathan’s supporters. Truth is, Buhari is not a magician. Buhari is not a miracle-worker. Buhari is an ordinary human being. Buhari is not blessed with super-natural brain. Buhari is not ‘deputy God’ in the hearts of nobody. Buhari is not fit for second term. These are the facts.

Busayo Bolanle: Nigerians that failed to support Buhari are the real patriots and they are now being vindicated for speaking up for Jonathan despite his shortcomings. I only sympathise with his unrepentant followers and die-hard supporters who intentionally elevated him as somebody from the extra-terrestrial world with absolute magic wand to solve all our problems within few weeks in power.

Olawale Akande: They fraudulently dressed the old soldier in a borrowed cloak of puritanism and infallibility while the earth quakes with anger in protest against their mockery and hypocrisy. I rest my case for now for national peace and stability.

Tayo Agbabiaka: Buhari was voted in to address the rot in the system and that does not sound as if he is to run a marathon race! Probity is very rare and scarce in Nigeria of today and that is the guy I believe has a pinch of it coupled with his austere life and frugality!

Buhari won the election for APC and I hope he is going to deliver us from them!

Orivri de law: When you know you can’t perform, you went ahead to fight GEJ and if not for wisdom that he applied, Buhari would have led to the killing of many innocent Nigerians just for your greedy quest for power. Those who knew you were too old for this young country went on to support you at 72 to be their president. Please, give them the ‘change’ but as you lambasted President Jonathan, I thought your performance would outweigh his own achievement.
