Does Buhari know the ‘change’ many Nigerians are expecting?

At a dinner meeting with Abuja Private Sector Forum in Abuja on Saturday night, Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, General Mohammadu Buhari, said the clamour for change in Nigeria’s political governance has become the desire of all Nigerians and not limited to APC as a party.

This is true. Nigerians want change. One wonders however if the General has the specifics of the ‘change’ that Nigerians want. And most of them expect these changes to happen instantaneously if the APC wins the presidential ticket.

Here is a list of some of the things that a lot of Nigerians believe ‘change’ entails.
