  1. For god's sake they should allow this man to rest. he's run by so unpathetic group people. poor Yar'adua, he should have been left to go back to class room.

  2. Dear lord,
    I said it that our president might not live to see the end of his term, they should allow this man be for crying out loud. He needs some rest and peace.
