How do you hand over a Nation with such a youthful population, seeking Visionary leadership to a man who is not only old but lacks Wisdom. He remains the only past president who never went for a leadership course nor read a book after his tenure.
Gowon, IBB, Obasanjo, all went to JOS after their time to refresh on the basics of Leadership and nation building. He never went, neither wrote a book, or gave a detailed documentation of his stewardship.

Friends, you cannot give what you don't have or comprehend that which you've never seen or heard. A man who believed life is simple should never have been brought to govern a complicated country.
