  14. Please to those saying the President of Nigeria should emulate, may I ask you to look into your heart and emulate first. Thanks.

    That said, yes o, Nigerians would feel better if we didn't think our leaders were out there with no feeling for the masses. They SEEM to love wealth so much. Why do we suspect this? Because they are from us, and we know how we ourselves are. Lol. Guilty conscience.
