Dear President and General Buhari,
OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT, GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI
I am constrained to write to you this open letter. I decided to make it an open letter because the issue is very weighty and must be greatly worrisome to all concerned Nigerians and that means all right-thinking Nigerians and those resident in Nigeria. Since the issue is of momentous concern to all well-meaning and all right-thinking Nigerians, it must be of great concern to you, and collective thinking and dialoguing is the best way of finding an appropriate and adequate solution to the problem. The contents of this letter, therefore, should be available to all those who can help in proffering effective solutions for the problem of insecurity in the land.
On Saturday, Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, spoke at the Northern Youth Summit organised to deliberate on developing northern Nigeria. He painted a picture of Nigeria’s defective growth and development. El-Rufai said two countries presently inhabit the womb of Nigeria and while northern Nigeria ranks the same as war-torn Afghanistan, southern Nigeria is “developing.” His speech was full of other ethnic-tinged howlers, and curiously, that was where he stopped. He did not get to the part where he reflected on the role the elite like him played in the fate of the North.

The leaders of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) to my mind think that the rest of Nigerians are fools. They believe that other Nigerians lack the power to think, make deductions and take a position. It is on this premise that the leadership structure of the APC prefers propaganda to National Development.

As a former Chief Education Officer in the Rivers State Ministry of Education, I am fully inclined to support Governor Nyesom Wike in the abrogation of fees and levies in public primarily and secondary schools in Rivers State.
On 6th February 2014 the leader of IPOB and the lion of the East, my friend and brother Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, said the following, “As they campaign vigorously for elections, you would think, they are coming to grow the economy, enthrone justice, breed unity and tolerance, love for one another.
