    So let me get this straight. Ebola is trailblazing northwards from the south, killing more people than it actually infects. And on the other hand these god – forsaken insurgents are trooping southwards, committing all sorts of atrocities. And we have not declared Nigeria a state of emergency……No??? Mr President is waking up and .going back to sleep everyday…..Yes????. Top on their agenda was dealing with the soldiers that opened fire on one of the ogas at the top and bruised their ego…… Yes???? I weep. Just weep.
