Need To Be Cautious On Reaction To Issues

Need To Be Cautious On Reaction To Issues
  • PublishedAugust 22, 2017

The acting president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo traveled to Ethiopia recently on a mission and while in that country, some people in the society at that time were calling on the Senate President Bukola Saraki to act as president.

This kind of agitation, so to say, did not in any way represent what should be the case in nascent democratic process.

The question arising from this baseless agitation is, why are such people calling on the senate president to act since they knew that Professor Osinbajo will return to the country within few days?

One may dare to say that this kind of call was callous and unrealistic, and those nursing that kind of ambition should have a rethink and bury their heads in shame.

Nigeria stands on united we stand, and divided we fall, hence, it is imperative to caution ourselves on how we react to such delicate issues that can cause disharmony.

Though, late but it is important to reiterate this fact, as such scenario might repeat itself in the course of national service soon.

The truth is that the activities of the Acting President are guided by the law of our country and what is required is prayers for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari and success of Osinbajo within the period in an acting capacity.
