“Your piece “The race of civilizations” was intellectually faulty. Science and morality are parallel entities”. Barr. U. Mshelia (08069579871).
“Salam. May Allah bless and give you long life, more knowledge to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims, amin. Your write-up “The race of civilizations” gives me hope and gladdens my heart. From Sino, Abuja. Thank you”. (08185091260).
“Our Ummah lacks leadership. Almost everybody is a scholar (Mallam)”. From Imrana Balarabe Chikawa (08060884428).
“Assalamu brother. Your article “The race of civilizations II” refers. I couldn’t reconcile some points in it. E.g. “Muslim science, philosophy and mathematics based largely on the achievement of ancient Greek” and many others like this depict intent of the article to me (sic). I am a regular reader of your articles in the Weekly Trust paper. But this one of April 13 edition didn’t concur with it (sic). Please look at it again and again. I am sure some brothers will also draw your attention to it. Jazakallah”. From Murtala Haruna, Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital Kano (08182676996).

Re: Where are prayer warriors?
I read your column; Bull’s eye. GEJ and VP will never call for such prayers because they are the problem. Let’s all pray for Allah’s divine intervention. He will do so before 2015. Mark my words”! Hajara, Kaduna (08051911922).
“I read your article “Where are prayer warriors?” in the Weekly Trust edition of Saturday March 30, 2013. I must say with all zeal that if it will take us … (sic) the cankerworms to have peace in our country, then so be it insha Allah. Let’s go for the clarion call”! (08031187733).
“Assalamu Alaykum. I am always enriched by your article. I will pray for Nigeria”. Abubakar Jibrin, Minna (08139734786).
Re: This pardon is ridiculous
Your write-up published by Weekly Trust on 23/3/13 speaks volumes of ill-advised and selfish approach to governance by GEJ and his cohorts. His administration is simply the most corrupt and insensitive”. Dr Audu (08022376147).
“Well done. Maybe you are being a little moderate by shying away from hitting the nail squarely on the head. Mr. President used his usual trick of deceiving Nigerians by playing on their ethnic sentiments; joining two criminals from the north: Bulama and Bello Magaji to gain national approval of image laundering of his criminal associate Alamieyeseigha through pardon. All these people will ever remain criminals in our eyes”. Mohammed Ahmed (07039770479).
“President GEJ has wittingly or unwittingly unleashed corruptions on the land by this act of pardon especially that of Alams and Bulama. The pardon signals “open sesame” for corruption in the land. There is a big difference between what the president has a right to do and what is right to be done”. ABMus, Kano (08068029323).
“Your write-up published by Weekly Trust on 23/2/13 speaks volumes of ill-advised and selfish approach to governance by GEJ and his cohorts. His administration is simply the most corrupt and insensitive”. Dr. Audu (08022376147).

Re: Maina: The triumph of corruption
Your article on Maina shows how rotten our political leadership is. If it were in an advanced democracy, the president would have either resigned or been impeached. May God save us, amin”. (08036169042)
“By all indications, Maina and Oteh are more important than 150million Nigerians and that shows how useless the entire National Assembly is; a clear point that GEJ is the most corrupt leader that ever existed in Africa. Both Muslims and Christians should pray against the calamity (GEJ) and his entire team”. Comrade Alkali (07032718633).
“Refer to paragraph 3 of your column. Ms Arumah Oteh is the Director General of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and not BPE Pls”. Barr. Yahaya Dukku (07031626570).
“You are right by saying, ‘May Allah liberate us from the clutches of corruption and corrupt leaders’. You have spoken the mind of an average Nigerian. The question I keep asking myself is: Has government legalized corruption? What type of legacy are we leaving for youths? Well, history will vindicate the just! Revolution is looming”.

Is this government alive?
So many things, most of them negative, are happening as if no government exists in the country? Research institutes have been on a nation-wide strike since January 2013 and nobody seems to be bothered about the consequences of ignoring such crisis. Many of these research institutes are in the area of health. Yet, we expect such centers like the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) Iddu, Abuja to produce indigenous and affordable drugs for the treatment of tropical diseases such as malaria; dreaded diseases such as HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis. The same government that desires to be among the first 20 world economies by 2020 nonetheless ignores the plight of research institutes including those in the sectors of agriculture, education, social and management sciences, engineering, energy, pure and applied sciences,  which scientific outcomes in the form of forensic reports, data, and surveys are basic requirements for that lofty dream. Maybe they want to use magic to become a strong world economy. I kept wondering at what workers were celebrating last Wednesday when many federal employees including the entire FCDA workforce in Abuja observed this year’s May Day without their April Salary. Is this government alive at all? May Allah (SWT) save Nigeria, amin.
