THANK YOU MR PRESIDENT
When the Commander-in-Chief takes command and is seen to be in actual command, well then, I will concede that leadership has been demonstrated, albeit only superficially.
Yes, Mr President. Your visit to the troops was a great morale booster, both for them, and for those of us fellow voyagers who had begun to wonder how long the captain would remain below deck, asleep while the storm of insecurity raged and the ship of state tossed wildly atop the angry waters.

Thank you Mr President. I will not forget this. It is but poor compensation for all the other issues that yet burn, but in doing this, you have proved yourself, in some small but significant way, the president of all Nigeria.
Although you have won back my respect, you have not won back my vote. That valued property, that franchise, that vote, is a precious one, to be delegated only where competence either has been amply demonstrated or is likely to be amply demonstrated. In 2015, it belongs to another.
Once again, Mr President, thank you. Daalu.
