  • I do not know why elected Nigerian politicians think they are father to their electorate. They are employed by the people to serve them using their special skill which could be leadership, humility, empathy and equity or education and knowledge of subject matter. The elected individual could be as young as 20 to lead a constituents of 60 or more year olds, how is he the father of all?

  • Dr. Good luck Jonathan display of maturity has remained unparalleled in the annals of Nigerian Presidency. He is still the best President Nigeria never had in 2015
