President Umaru Yar’adua has just started towards the same path and at the end of his tenure do not be surprised if he makes his own scandalous utterances. Some of such would be that he never begged to be President, substantiating the fact that he was ‘drafted’ against his wish. He would have been alright if he went back to the classroom where he would have been having enough rest and not aggravate his bad health. he would not forget to add that, but for the spoils of office and the insistence of his wife, he never wanted a second term.
Can someone tell me how a President that prepared and presented his budget to the nation through the National Assembly will turn round now and tell the nation that he cannot work with the same submission? His last year’s budget was not executed as well, at least not by 60%. We are watching how far this debate by our nation’s presidents will go on.
