Dear Mr. President,

This letter is not written in a spirit of detestation or discourtesy nor is it impel (motivated) in any way by tribal, religious or regional biasness. It is written with highly esteemed due to the office and the huge tasks that have been emplace on your shoulders and also to outline suggestion.

image1By introduction I am Arerebo Salaco Yerinmene Peter’s Jr, from the southern part of Nigeria, Ayakoromo and Ogodobiri town, Burutu and Bomadi Local Government Area, Delta State to be pricise, founding Secretary General People of Intellectual Visions (PIV). I’m a young man who will one day riseup against self_centered or self_aggrandizement leadership in Nigeria because am wintry to self_centered leaders and injustice. I am not a card carrying memeber of any political party because its my own right to be a card carrying memeber or not.

Mr. President you are voted inn to president us (Nigerians) because we beleive on your integrity and personality in leadership and i utterly expecting you to endeveour to run an inclusive government so that you will be extol by Nigerians before and after your administration. As a president federal republic of Nigeria, it means you are president to all Nigerians not a president to only those that voted you inn. For posterity to Judge you A_ok (perfectly ok) and great you should as well treat all Nigerians equal and channel development and job opportunities across all the four (4) geo_political zone in Nigeria with no sense of favorism.

My President i want to draw your attention on three paramount areas that you need to focus on, and it will ally most of the challenges and problems in Nigeria.

1. EDUCATION: Everyone has the right to a good education! When young people are educated they are more likely to be aware of their rights and better able to make sure that these rights are highly respected. At the same time, education provides young people with vital skills and critical thinking and confidence, creating a healthy basis for everyone to succeed in life and they will forver remain humble and passionate citizens. Unfortunately, not every child and young Nigerian has access to education base on the factor that the Nigeria educational system is very expensive, some families are too poor to send their children to school which sometines lead their children to bad life.

Mr. President i want you to look critically into the educational system (Primary to tertiary) and comeup with policies that the poor parents can also send their children to school in the country If possible engage the deprive and impoverished youths in life changing projects and programs (Scholarship) that alone will allay some of the challenges we are facing in Nigeria society.

Mr. President there is a need to strenghten and facilitate the Nigerian Seaferers development program (nsdp) under the management of Nigeria Maritime Administrative and Safety Agency (NIMASA) because the program is a clear strategic intervention scheme aimed primarily at addressing this short to medium term manpower need first for the Nigerian maritime industry, to improve Nigeria?s overall skill base and to encourage development of capacity in the shipping industry and to develop a pool of surveyors to facilitate the discharge of NIMASA?s function under flag and port state control.

2. REMEDY TO NIGER DELTA PROBLEMS: Mr. President to remedy the problems of Niger Delta i suggest you should follow the Nigeria oil local content bill and root_out the report of the WILLINK COMMISSION, a commission setup by the British Colonial Authorities in the 50ths to address the fears of the miniorities (Niger Delta) which was headed by Harry Willink. Also to alleviate the predicament or status quo designate or Set_store_by selfless, people like, anti_corrupt, broad_minded and sincere persons from the area in your administration. One of the major problem we are facing in Niger Delta is self_centered leadership and unsharing or unchanneling of wealth, if the people mandated grass root person is appointed to represent the people interest definietly the people will rejoice. So Mr. President their is a need to consult the people’s mind before designate anybody to represent the region in your cabinet.

Mr. President i grab this favourbale juncture to commend and extol you for appointing Niger Deltan, Brigadier-General Paul.T. Boroh (rtd.) to principal and coordinate the presidential amnesty program (PAP), this alone flaunt that you have good listening ears and master plan or blueprint to strenghten the amnesty program. I nudge you to assembly all the MEND, Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) and Ijaw National Congress (INC) leaders to discuss the way forward in Niger delta, engaged those participant in the amnesty program that have already done with their program and those that are not yet done in life changing jobs.

Mr. President for the sake of peace and unity in Niger Delta i call on your attentiion to review or revisit all the set of circumtances or conditions that lead to life imprisonment of a patriotic and compassionate son of Niger Delta, Mr. Edmund Ebiware who is innocently accused and jailed for life sentence in kuje prison in regards to the 1st of october 2010 Abuja eagle square bombing. It’s crystal clear that he is politically setup, gang_up and victimize.. It’s a Tabu and unjustly for an innocent patriotic compatriot to suffer innocently.

3. CORRUPTION: In our society, the impact of corruption is often manifested through political intolerance, problems of accountability and transparency to the public, low level of democratic culture, principles of consultation and participation dialogue among others.

The economic effects of corruption can be categorized as minor and major. However, both in one way or the other have serious impact on the individual community and country. First and foremost, corruption leads to the depletion of national wealth. It is often responsible for increased costs of goods and services, the funneling of scarce public resources to uneconomic high profile projects at the expense of the much needed projects such as schools, hospitals and roads, or the supply of potable water, diversion and misallocation of resources, conversion of public wealth to private and personal property, inflation, imbalanced economic development, weakling work ethics and professionalism, hindrance of the development of fair in market structures and unhealthy competition there by deterring competition. Large scale corruption hurts the economy and impoverishes entire population.

In Social sphere, corruption discourages people to work together for the common good. Frustration and general apathy among the public result in a weak civil society. Demanding and paying bribes becomes the tradition. It also results in social inequality and widened gap between the rich and poor, civil strive, increased poverty and lack of basic needs like food, water and drugs, jealousy and hatred and insecurity.

Mr. President i commend you for the step you are taking in handling or fighting coruption all for the common good of the country but to make it more A_okay (perfectly ok) and far commendable extend the fight to your own house (party) because it’s apparantly clear that their are corrupt politically priviledge personel in your party that neeed to face justice.

Let me close this letter by nudging you and your cabinet to defend the sovereignty and independence of Nigerians and assert your right, OUR RIGHT, to adopt policies and programs that will truly lift the people out of under-development and grinding poverty. I assure you that young upcomong stars that are wintry to corruption and injustice will stand with you, and defend the courageous decisions that you will be forced to make, in order to realize a truly united nation and prosperous society.

Thanks and Godbless you Mr. President.

Yours Sincerely

Arerebo Salaco Yerinmene Peter’s Jr
(Secretary General People of Intellectual Visions)
