Sir Bolaji and Falana; Come down to mother earth. You are both in Nigeria and not in the USA. We have Yaradua and not Reagan. All the big english you are writing are very interesting but please, begin landing on the earth and face the reality of Nigeria.

Our President is sick, period! If he recovers, good for Nigeria, if not, good for Nigeria. Let us wait and see.

Sir Bolaji, The "other" choice is to organize an opposition that works. Democracy grows through opposition. Those of you who take the Federal Government seriously operating under the Abubakar constitution are only being faced with the legitimacy of your choice.

The constitution is clear on what Yaradua ought to do under these circumstances, but a constitution that does not represent the people's will cannot be adhered to. If the leader of the Nigerian opposition, wherever that exists, found himself ill and was unable to broadcast his end-of-year Radio Hajia, say, opposition message, that would concern me.

Under the Abubakar constitution, however, our great leader is on vacation to study medicine in Arabia... not Kaduna, because the hospital in Kaduna is also operating, Sir Bolaji, under the Abubakar constitution.
