Paul, we are yet to experience democracy in Nigeria. What we have in Nigeria, is certainly government by the errand boys, selected by the godfathers and to serve the godfathers. They have no agenda of their own. Most legislatures today are there for what they can grab. They tend to profit in crises situations as this, when they can get easy bribe money. The amount you make depends on whose camp you belong to. it's a big shame. That probably explains why no one bothers about the interest of the masses so long as they (the politicians)are assured of a return ticket by the "looting party" (PDP). A situation where the supposedly acting President and Commander in Chief is denied access to Mr Yar'Adua who is being held hostage by the "first lady" will tell you that this so called democracy is a mess.
One thing is sure, nothing lasts for ever. These will all fizzle out in time, like all other similar events in our national history. Nigeria will surely survive.
God bless Nigeria.

It is too appolying that few nonentities in the presidency are taking the whole nation for ride but I know that Nigerians are not ignorant of their tricks. It is just because no one good Nigerian wants destruction of the nation otherwise they would have faced a serious upheaval, and one thing that might be making them think that they are above the law, might be their thinking that they have the hold of some top military officers. I envisage this, retrospecting on the action of the army chief that disregarded the Acting President in that urgly way of parcelling Yaradua back home in such devil minded night. But what pains me is the attitude of the Acting President in this matter. He should act fast by ordering the arrest and trial of the army chief for treason. He is the Commander of the Armed forces but it seems he is ignorant of such enomous power vested on him. he should utilize it for the good of Nigerians. Once he understands his powers and acts accordingly, all the evil actors in this scenerio will hide themseelves. Again, I have to say that Mrs Yaradua on her own part committed questionable offence no matter that Yara is her husband.Ok, assuming he is not Nigerian head of state, he is someone's brother and kinsman. Is a wife correct to hide her husband from his kinsman in African situation? We should think of this. I am seeing her as a type that pushes her husband into unreparable mistakes. Nigerians are postponing the evil day by relaxing.
