Daily Trust - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

Open a di­rect line to Nige­ri­ans

I want to com­mend Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jon­than on his com­mit­ment to rate se­cu­rity budget higher than any other area, how­ever, we all ac­knowl­edge lit­tle head­way. I want sug­gest to Mr Pres­i­dent to open a di­rect link/ line to his hum­ble of­fice, so that Nige­ri­ans can ex­press their views to him, for­mer Pres­i­dent Oluse­gun Obasanjo did dur­ing his govern­ment. Fi­nally sir, my ide­ol­ogy is this, the suc­cess of my leader is my suc­cess and the fail­ure of our leader is our fail­ure. In ad­vance coun­tries they don’t joke with the idea and in­for­ma­tion, they make use of it when nec­es­sary. Last year 2013, I wrote three page to Mr pres­i­dent on way for­ward to tackle un­em­ploy­ment and put stop­page to dump­ing of raw su­gar in the coun­try. I did not re­ceive any ac­knowl­edge­ment let­ter from pres­i­dent. Thanks. Com­rade James Olorun­maiye, Nasarawa state.07010535823 Adamu Adamu’s last Fri­day Col­umn was won­der­ful and pa­tri­otic; jour­nal­ists should ex­pose cor­rup­tion as loud as they can. How­ever Adamu’s so­lu­tion to cor­rup­tion in the coun­try is an un­ac­cept­able lengthy process. A short cut so­lu­tion is to elect

a hon­est lead­er­ship, no more no less. 08038457850 I be­lieve the award of the sum of N10 mil­lion to each of the eight de­ceased vic­tims of the ex­tra-ju­di­cial killing is un­en­force­able. This is be­cause Sec­tion 22 (1) of the NHRC Act which pro­vides for the reg­is­tra­tion & en­force­ment are ul­tra vires to the Na­tional As­sem­bly. By virtue of Item 57 of the exclusive leg­isla­tive list of the 1999 Con­sti­tu­tion, only court judg­ments may be so en­forced. Bar­ris­ter Abubakar Sani, Abuja 08034533892

Chi­bok girls

The ab­duc­tion of 100+ school girls have al­ready taken an­other di­rec­tion, the mil­i­tary have said they have res­cued them while the prin­ci­pal and par­ents says they have not. Which party can we trust? Does the mil­i­tary want to show us their vet­er­ancy or just a de­ceit? If it is a de­ceit what sig­nal it would show to us? Just as­sume your daugh­ter is among and some­body is fool­ing you. Rabiu Musa, Kano State 08039290267
