Article: Where Is Nigerian President?

                                              [President Yar'Adua]
Nigerians have been driven to the smoky sludge of the beach of the unknown as some sycophatic cabal in the corridor of power are playing on our intelligence especially in the course to find out the whereabout of  the Nigeria president, Umaru Yar'Adua.
One finds it quite knotty to understand that the real truth behind the whereabout of President Umaru Yar'Adua has yet not been disclosed to the innocent Nigerians.
It is consistent with human intellect to reason that it is either our president has been abducted or he has finally abdicated his office.
This singular issue has revealed that the inner sanctum of power in the Nigerian scene is fraught with rot and political decadence, the reason is not far to seek as the entirety of the Nigerian and non-Nigerian citizenry have been wallowing in the thick darkness of ignorance as it affects the President's state of health and the official stance of the presidency.
It therefore suffices to say that no degree of a cloaked defence can avail the Presidency unless and until the truth is told to the people of Nigeria who have saddled the president with the mandate to stir the course of this nation.
President Yar'Adua and his handlers cannot follow the path of least resistance by perpetuating his stay in an unknown hibernaculum. It will therefore be unsafe to say that President Yar'Adua has been abducted in a foreign land or that he has abdicated office and is seeking the wholeness of his mortal body as against that of the national body.
I make bold to say that in these day of electronic communications and Nigeria is not so much out of civilization that an electronic conference address cannot be staged by the Federal Executive Council to enable Mr. President to responsibly respect and assuage the feelings of his people. 
Recently, when the organisers of the FIFA World Cup couldn't get our well-respected Nelson Mandela physically to the draws ceremony, a video conference was done where a sick and over 90 years old Mandela was seen by the whole world and interacted with his people, ditto for Signore Fidel Castro of Cuba who is currently indirectly ruling his country through television and video footages.
Even it will not be too much of an effort beckon on Former President, general Obasanjo to restage the "Umaru are you dead?" episode.
Wither Nigerians, where are our mightiest, where are our intellectuals, our oracles of knowledge and voltrons of our democracy, the non communication of the President is depriving the democratic society of Nigeria a most fundamental right to information and given credence to the unconsciously established belief in the return or unfortunate nonexistence of the President Umaru Yar'Adua again.

Mrs Turai Yar'Adua, first wife of Nigeria's President currently hospitalized in Saudi Arabia is reportedly the only link between the bed ridden Nigerian leader and the rest of the Federal Executive Council membership, including the Vice-president. The President as reported first by chidi opara reports travelled without handing over to the Vice-president.

Mrs Yar'Adua is reportedly nursing  Presidential ambition. She may, according to information at our disposal, succeed her husband in 2011, if the latter's health did not permit him to contest for a second term.
