CNN: Hospitalised Nigerian President (Umaru Yar'adua) Not Stepping Down. by Nobody: 12:01pm On Nov 27, 2009
We at GidiNoize just saw this and thought we’ll share it with you.
According to CNN, President Umaru Yaradua will not be stepping down
despite his recently discovered heart condition and his kidney problem.

Why should he step down when it is his birth right? Remember that he still wants to go for the second round 2011. The man does not have what it takes to lead Nigeria, With all due respect.

But what are the options

I will strongly suggest that we need nothing short of some young military officers with “a vision” coming back to power for two year in which they will restore law and order within government and politics. Some people need to be dead before this country can move forward and only the military can do this.

Urgent situations deserve urgent measures.

Beer-parlour talk on Nairaland will take us nowhere!!!

Why is it that this piece of rubbish is quoted from gidinoize instead of cnn's website. I won't take this serious.

On the issue, i expect the military to take over if the man dies hence it is better he survives till 2011 where he would end his tenure.

Spyker,

You are entitled to your own opinion, but please!!!

Give me one reason why the current president should continue, taking into consideration his ill health? Let us be clear about the fact that presidency is not about laying on your sick bed and giving orders.

Remember that if he dies the vice president should step into his shoes, but do you think they will allow this? Even if the vice president takes over, is he any better? Can he bring the drastic change needed to change peoples/politicians thinking that there is nothing like a “free lunch”?

We need to stop waiting for God, stop hoping and do something.

The average Nigerian is not ready for a revolution to change the ugly state of things, so the next best thing at our disposal is for the military to help us. But it should be clearly stated that we need some young radical boys with a vision.

What has democracy done for us? Apart from enriching a few politicians and their affiliates?

I rest my case!!!

If he dies, Jonathan will take over and that's how it should be in a democratic nation. I dn't wish him death, but I wish him to step down. It's very selfish and ignrant of him to hold on tight to the seat when he can't use it to benefit the people that supposedly put hime there.

Come to think of it, who is wiser, Jonathan or a sick Yaradua

And do you all know that the clause have been removed for the VP to take over should event the Presido dies on the throne? A new election will be conducted and a new president will be "selected" from him constituency. Jonathan will pack his bags from the Villa.

Nigerians did not vote Yar'Adua in d 1st place. He was imposed on us. No thanks to Obj.

The man should just resign & look after his health. Any healthy person can take over till 2011.

We are very backward on so many fronts.

This useless press confrence that Segun Adeniyi grants, do they (press corps) get to ask him questions

[size=18pt]Because its about time someone ask Segun Adeniy how their adminnistration can continue to lecture everyone else on rule of law when the President himself is breaking the law which requires him to resign if he is not fit for office on medical grounds?[/size]

@military_coup_apologists

Those inviting the military back into our polity should pray for a military coup in their own personal lives too.

This excuse of straightening out a political logjam was how we got the worst administration in the history of Nigeria under Abacha.

If you don't wish a military coup and/or an "Abacha" in your personal live then don't wish it on Nigeria.

We will work this out ourselves. Despite the way it looks this is a surgery that Nigeria must undertake to reach true nationhood, and we are already moving in the right direction. We don't need the military to come in and truncate our learning process. No matter what happens the military needs to stick with their true calling and honor.

It is amazing how he jets to Saudi for treatment if he sneezes while leaving the health system at home in a dire state.
