    Anybody posting anything here must speak correct English and make sure spellings are correct. Any University graduate with our British education should be able to do that. Is VP Osibanjo the closest adviser and a Southern Christian able to advise PMB at all especially regarding federal character in appointments? Take a look at the appointments to MDAs and the recent appointments to NNPC and retirements in the military. No single South East citizen was appointed to NNPC while the North that has no singe drop of oil dominated the appointments. Is VP just a figure head and cannot advise PMB properly without fear or intimidation? We have a democratic dispensation and freedom of speech and all Nigerians are equal before the law.
