    With all due respect Mr.President, you are a day late and a dollar short. You had to be criticised for attending a Kano wedding in order for you to realize that you haven’t acted presidential. You ignored the citizens of Benue, Taraba, Yobe in distress for months , but could find thr time to attend a Wedding Well, see you next year at the ballot box.

      Hmmm….not quite. Weddings can and usually are a form of networking.

      It appears bad, but I don’t think he abandoned them.
