  1. There is a saying that,” when the righteous rule the people rejoice ”
    The new chances of the president is no good example to future leaders in any way because with the looks, the young growing minds will grow up too and decide to pick up from what the farmers have done.
    And this is really counting down on the credibility of the country

  2. I like Mr. President for doing this simply because I believe in his Nephew that he can’t betray Mr. President, they have blood relationship in their life.God be with Mr. President.

  3. There is nothing bad in that ,number 1,he is not yet 60years and secondly he is a nephew of Mr president.so if its you in position of Mr president, will you send him away?
