  3. Mr president has failed woefully. I remember when some Fulanis' were killed some years back in Ibadan during lam adesina's regime. PMB took it upon himself to visit the governor to put an end to the killings. Now that he is a president he has decided to keep mute. I don't blame him, maybe he has not recovered from his ear infection.
