The Senate Tuesday resolved to have Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan as Acting President until President Umar Musa Yar'Adua returns from his medical trip abroad and is fit to return to his position.

It would be recalled that the Governors Forum, the Arewa Consultative Forum and even the Information Minister Prof. Dora Akunyili, have all called for the official recognition of Jonathan Goodluck as acting President pending the full recovery of ailing President Yar'Adua who has been away for over 70 days on medical trip in Saudi Arabia.

We celebrate his victory together with him but I must humbly submit here that Nigeria as a country should be considered more paramount than personal,individualistic and egocentric difference.

Good luck should be sworn in as president immidiately cause even when yar'Adua is able to make it back he can not rule us.Because he will fall sick again an go back to where he is comming from saudi Arabia.

There's a saying that 'you are what you bear'. I wish the acting president good luck according to his name. May the God of Abraham sustain him and give him wisdom. Nigeria is a hard country!
