    When will buhari be tired of signing. He has never stayed for two weeks at a stretch in nigeria without going from one country to another looking for where to sign agreement. Since he knows that he does not respect agreements talk less of obeying court orders why spend our money looking for where to sign. Buhari, has anything good come out of all these signings?
