Reacting to the news that President Yar'Adua's health has been able to talk on the phone with some government officials and lawmakers, the Action Congress, (AC), said Nigerians would also like to hear directly from the President to assure them that he is well and recovering.
The statement said, "It is good that President Yar'Adua has spoken to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan, Senate President, David Mark and House Speaker, Dimeji Bankole. But these people do not constitute Nigeria, they are not the ones who voted him into office. The President must speak directly to the remaining 149,999,997 Nigerians, using the dated video recording format that we suggested in our earlier statement on Monday.
"Alternatively, the President could also do a live phone-in to the NTA or Radio Nigeria to enable him speak directly to his compatriots and convince them of his increasing well-being, instead of the current situation where the people have to depend on confused spin doctors to get an update on the health of their President, who has been away for over 44 days.
"Besides, some of these people the President was said to have spoken with are no longer credible in the eyes of Nigerians, since they have given a lot of inaccurate information on the issue of the President's illness, including that they have been in touch with him when we are aware they have not,"

Rubber stamp national assembly----- filled with area boys and cult members and 419ers what do you expect from an origination filled with criminals---- nothing absolute nothing.
As long as they get their kickbacks from contracts and bribes they are fine, the power vacuum is windfall for many of them so what do they care?

All the arms of Nigeria government are a total disgrace to the entire citizens. Unloving rulers who are ruining entire country into no where............In a country of plenty many are hungry because of greed and wickedness.Nigerians needs leaders but not rulers anymore. Shame to Nigeria rulers that Nigerians have no respect anywhere in the world because of their failure to entire citizens.The professional 419ers in Nigeria arms of government travels abroad every now and then, never bring ideas that will make the country to develop like every other countries they steal our money to. shame to you all.

I never knew na so,so many empty heads full our senate and the house of assembly until now.They want to take on the US when they can't even take on their own president for abuse of powe.At this point I could care less if the US decided to send couple of marines to take care of Nigeria.That is what happens to countries without leaders.We play them like you play football.
