YOUR EXCELLENCY, We wish you a fruitful year this year 2017; knowing fully well that you have a very enormous responsibility as the Father of Nigeria. We wish you good health and sound state of mind. You will need all the goodwill and best wishes in the face of the daunting challenges which 2017 presents. As part of our New Year greetings, we will be patriotic and fearless enough to bring some obvious issues to your notice. Sir, your past one year and 7 months reign as President of our Dear Nation has been a very difficult period for majority of Nigerians.
During an economic summit held in Abuja, the former richest man in Africa started unveiling a catalog of woes! If Aliko Dangote can be complaining....... Who born the rest of Nigeria? The masses and the less privileged beings in Nigeria have never had it so rough! The explanation of some myopic and biased thinkers was that Nigerians have become so used to corruption that our lives practically revolves around the proceeds of corrupt practices. It came as a very rude and unexpected shock when the Secretary to your Government, David Babachir Lawal, whom you selected was accused not only of corrupt practices.......
BUT STEALING MONIES MEANT FOR THE PROVISION OF COMFORT TO INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSON's OF THE NORTH EASTERN STATES!
Your Government is yet 4 months clear of marking 2 years in office, yet many are suffering! Many have falling sick due to hungary!! Many have died due to hungary!!! We may now seem critical of your government, we do not view you to be a "BAD PERSON", afterall, we have been your fervent admirer and supporter! But we must not be supporting you blindly at the expense of the suffering masses who voted you in mainly because they perceived you as being the angel who will give them the change they were yearning for!
Amongst those who have had the opportunity to hold public office in Nigeria, you are virtually part of the very few having a "clean wardrobe" void of smelly skeletons... BUT....... TIME IS OF ESSENCE MR. PRESIDENT! WE VOTED FOR YOU, CANVASSED FOR YOU, ARGUED FOR YOU AND STRUGGLED FOR YOU! You are yet to repay the confidence Nigerians have in you by bringing the needed fresh breath in our economy. Frugality and probity in governance isn't the only thing lacking in Nigeria! As long as people are hungary, thirsty and poor......., they will conclude that you aren't doing anything!
BABA, HURRY UP! The Patience of Nigerians has been over stretched! Do all you need to do to make things work! Deal with anyone that is working against your government; but ensure that Nigerians are comfortable! You have many devilish, inhuman entities serving under your government! We pray that Almighty God will open your eyes to see them and do the needful! It is our prayer that in this NEW YEAR 2017, Almighty God will guide and guard you, and also help you the truth to know!
GOD BLESS YOU SIR, GOD BLESS FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA!
