    No matter how briliant and well-intended the team might be, they cannot succeed more the vision of the president.

    I am sorry to say this, the President seems myopic about everything.

    If I have my way, I will tell Mallam Nuhu Ribadu not to accept the offer but if he eventually accepts, I trust his judgement in everything.

    He is the most courageous man known to me.
