    Are you begging the President to do the right thing for every Nigerian irrespective of tribe or tongue.?
    The President of any country is supposed to lead by example.
    Sectionalism, ethnicity of any kind should be disregarded because he is the father of all.
    No good President massacres his children, it is unheard of , not in this era, no matter what.
    If the President does not respect the rule of law then what does he expect of his subjects.
    The youths of the southern part of this country will never forget.
    Where has reasoning gone to, that the issues of agitation can not be looked into.
    If things are okay who will think of separating from Nigeria.
    Afterall without the heightened agitation of Nnamdi Kanu, nobody in Nigeria today will be talking about restructuring as is the subject matter today.
    South eastern and south south governors should know that as far as politics into elective offices is concerned today or in the future, their political relevance and career is over.
    The southerners have learnt their bitter lesson that those we elected are the same people that called for the destruction of the youths,the leaders of tomorrow.
