Beloved Nigerians, Mr President hold your peace.

Mother Christ the Mother of Nigeria, and Africa brought you to be the president of Nigeria, not those men you want to give award. The award the true Nigerians want from you is honesty.

Ask yourself a question, why giving award to some Nigerians should be my main agenda this time? You have yam, you have knife. Cut the yam, and give to hungry Nigerians to eat, not award. Christ told you to feed His Sheep, Lambs, and People. (John 21:15-17)

Choose major project like road building, among all states. Provide cooking kerosine for families at cheaper price. Try as you can to improve energy supply in all states.

Do, all you know that is right, Mother Christ will turn the heart of Nigerians to vote for you. If you wants to be a praise singer for Nigerians rather than to be their president, you will leave Aso Rock with shame.

Wake up Mr President, the angels of Mother Christ are waiting for you. They are ready to help you in all things. Only be strong as a leader. Call, they will answer you.
