Why the panic from the president?

17 October 2014, 21:25 Jibunor George Chuks

Who is concerned about whether the president is among the ten richest people in Africa; well, I can say no one. That fact is no ones business, because everyone is working for his or herself. There are many people in the country who their net worth is above Dangote. Our only concern is that the president is occupying a position which the salary is not above 1.5million Naira a month of which we know is not up to that or above.

Let me ask again; why the protest to remove name or not? Is there anything hidden that we don't know about? How did they get the information about the president's worth? I believe they can't just wake up and start estimating worth without having some facts of the persons wealth estimate. These people works with what they see. Can we equally say that is coming out from the corner of the opposition party in other to make the president's followers to have the belief that their leader is only interested in expanding his personal coast? More questions. Its never a big deal, I don't see any reason why that should be a headline news, only that at the condition and stage at with the country is; it is a questionable fact. I can only say that if the president is doing well enough for the people; that should not be an issue.

My view to this still stands, why the protest to remove the president name from the list? Who gave them the estimated figures that they worked with? How did the president come to that level within how many years? What is the panic/protest about from the president? Who is behind the listing? Readers, let's hear and have your views on this, this is our country, we share rights to know what is happening in our country because president Goodluck Jonathan Azikiwe Ebele is our president. God bless us. By Jibunor George Chuks
