PRESIDENT UMARU YAR'ADUA'S LEFT HAND?
Please click on this photograph of Nigeria's President Umaru Yar'Adua and pay particular attention to his left hand; the one adjusting his (parachute) babaringa. Now what do you see? A sign of a gravely ailing and lonely man whose days may be numbered? Icheoku appreciates his stoicism while dealing with this mortal challenge and the defiance he is putting up to whatever is ailing him. Our only concern is that as President, he owes it to the people of Nigeria, whose president he is, to explain to them the nature of his affliction. That way, any Nigerian pouring supplications to God on his behalf, will have something to really mention to God! Be that as it may, while wishing the president well, Icheoku says, President Umaru Yar'Adua should come clean and level with Nigerians on his ailment. A sick man's mind is always divided and cannot function properly in discharging the duties of his office. The president, it appears, spends most of his time contemplating on his next line of medical treatment and/or option; and have less time to do his job. Not even his much touted power emergency have been declared, two years down the road and the epileptic power situation in Nigeria has taken a turn for the worse? Is any Nigerian still wondering why President Umaru Yar'Adua has not achieved anything; not even a single thing is attributable to his two years in office? Have you clicked?
