President visit to Chibok

09 June 2014, 14:05 Jibunor George Chuks

The people of this great country has lost respect and dignity to the office of the president in command of their great country. Well, the politicians have generally abused their offices. There is a proverb which says “if the walls of the building falls; right then can goat, sheep and other small animals have the leverage to climb on it” ask when the building mightily stands strong, how can goat or sheep climb on it, talk less of urinating on it.

How can a president of a country wake up and decide to cancel or postpone a visi? Then, why is there this issue of cancellation now a case for the anti-good Nigeria people or opposition instead of the issue on the ground. They do not see any good things that  others do and even when they do see it, they pretend not to have seen it. But hey are only interested in your little errors so as to use it to condemn you. And yet we are yearning for step down or impeachment, then for whom to enter? Same old faces?? Why can't people wake up and leave sentiment for those without brains and who refuse to use the God's wisdom to better their lives and the lives of other people.

Most news agencies, now derives joy in seeing most of their fans abusing and coursing each other simply because the other person is from the part that the president is from, and probably the other is from different part and different religion. And yet, we claim to have known God. Tell me; the visit of the president to the village how it will produce those missing girls!hmmm. Why do they have governor in that state? Is he incapacitated to perform his duties which also security of lives and properties is under it? And yet, he is in office receiving his monthly salary and other allowances. I ask again! Why are we so sentimental in this country?

How big is Borno State; that it is now bigger than Nigeria as a country? The army personals in that region, do they still need the president's visit or present before they carry out their duties which they have been deployed therefore? Who is still sleeping and deceiving his or herself over visit or no visit. The president did not graduate from Nigeria defense academy, neither did he attend any military school; that is why they have chief of army staff/defense, the inspector general of police and others all in his cabinet. Should the president now do the works that they are been paid for and have sworn oath to protect lives and properties and help the people to be a good law and abiding citizens?. Many youths are educated but sorry to say “there is absolute nothing to show for it” many of them talk with fanatic sentiments and follow whose ever that is leading them so blindly. They don't even care where they ends up. Funniest thing is that, the children of those miss-leading fellows that their children and relatives are not in the shores of this country called Nigeria talk less of heaping abusive languages and courses upon each others on social media. People, especially youths need to wake up. If we continue like this, this country will never move than it is right now. My prayers is that things change for good. God bless us.
