THE SNEAKING IN OF MR PRESIDENT

We are glad to receive the news of the arrival of President Yar’Adua back to the country. Though the arrival was without any fanfare because of its clandestine nature, we hope that Nigerians that tried without success to see the President will have the opportunity to see the once elusive president.

It is our expectation that the president has arrived with all his faculties sound and intact to be able to pilot the affairs of the country very well. This is because his presence alone will not guarantee presidential powers but the soundness of his health matters.

The Acting President so far has steered the ship of the country with dexterity and deserve the support of all and sundry and any attempt to rock the boat will be a great disservice to this nation. Therefore we demand that anyone plotting to destabilize the nation using the arrival of Yar’Adua should perish such an ambition because it will be resisted by all Nigerians.

We equally make bold to say any form of incitement by anyone to cause confusion or to resort to any illegal means to overheat the system will be a test of the will of Nigerians to oppose any illegality.

Yar’Adua and his supporters should know that his arrival is not a blank cheque for assumption of powers until he transmits a written letter to the National Assembly signifying his return from medical vacation. We warn that any form of forgery will not be tolerated because the president must be seen to be fit.

It is imperative for President Yar’Adua’s supporters to note that they should stop playing on the sensibilities of Nigerians by sneaking him out and sneaking him into the country. The President is accountable to all Nigerians and not a minority of Nigerians who feel they can hold this country to ransom.
