  1. Are we forgetting we live in a democracy…. ruled by democracy… governed by democracy protected under a constitution that allows unfettered freedom of speech and freedom of expression. What on earth is going on…? Babaginda has acknowledged he approved the statement released by his aide… if the Police have a grief on that, one will assume they should go after the erstwhile former President who I must say and I repeat has the unfathom right to speak on the country’s state of affairs . We must be careful as a nation not to fall of the rail…!!!
