    Dear Editor,

    YEMI OSINBAJO is a waste of space; an amorphous dwarf with scant thought-process.

    Why pretend to be exercising powers without courage or confidence to go the whole hog?

    Why swear in two Ministers without assigning portfolios as job duty – why such pantomime?

    It is a lot better not to have an acting president than have a figure of speech as one, really.

      My thought exactly. How do you swear ministers in and don’t assign portfolios? What’s the point of swearing them in? This Nigeria don die finish
