    Sober,sadness,and mourning, in the camps of the wailers. Baba i s dead,baba is dead,is that your ghost,no problem let it carry on,I am in support,so far it is your ghost ,because it is better than a living Jonathan,who Sat and Tuck his two hands in between his two thighs and watch a massive and unprecedented looting of our national Treasury. May Allah continue to protect you to the dismay of those who has a god they claim is tormenting you while you were away. Your return has sent them maintaining a deep silent. Disappointed. They claim to pray for you,but deep down hypocritical hearts,it is curses,because you no longer allowed bushiness as usual. My true God has thrown them into concussion. All their sacrifices, curses,fasting has further been put back on their heads. Baba,you meant well and you are doing well,please keep it up. They attempted to instigate your vice against you through unnecessary praises,they even claimed your absence caused the Naira to grow against the dollar cutesy osibajo,they also claimed you made money with the dollar scarcity using your cronies. Now,they no longer find their evil voices. Mr fayose was already celebrating his prophesy of doom, that you might die before the end of your teneon,he has even been tipped for vice presidency. Some came to visit you in London not for the love they have for you,but to confirm if you are truly dead or incapacitated as they have earlier envisaged,but Allah disappointed them. Please don’t trust any of them. Some bastard igbos even celebrated the rumors of your death drinking and dancing. But if man proposes,I know your God is the one who disposes all affairs. Shame to those who don’t want your leadership styles.

    I like PMB and I wish him fast recovery,However, i have problem with his under performing managers who obviously are overwhelmed by their jobs and hence move at snail speed in finding solutions to the enormous problems inherited. You do not give the job of and elephant to a horse and hope for a home run. The weight will not only weigh the horse down but will be counter productive. Nigeria economy is too large to be crunched by a first degree holder. Even the like of Professor Kassey Garba, the highly qualified former economic adviser to Jonathan gave way for Ngozi to come in. It’s time to reboot. No more square pegs in round holes for political reasons. It’s time to reach out to better brains who really can crunch the numbers. My friend Professor Eddy Ndekwu could have done better. I believe Professor Garba in still around. University of Ibadan has a pool of intellectuals PMB can pool from. Welcome baba. May your enemies never no peace!
