Batimu, man for terre

Congrats man! You are wonderful.I was just reading through articles via the net on The Post online and i stumbled on an article culled from GEF's OUTLOOK,i got into it and discovered your great work. "o boy , you too strong. Great support from me Batimu , you remember "man for terre"?

Etime Godwill Ajieh

Things might be regarded as very minor or negligible to have a look at them whereas in the real sense, they are top in the scale of preference. Thank you brother for your analysis. I had a second thought after reading your article and I wish the authorities in power can have a look at this and other considered "worth not attendable issues" with a critical analysis as you have done. You have just brought to light a possible cause of an epidemic and the route of many problems in our world and in particular our supposedly beloved country. please keep it up.

GEF

Many thanks to all of you who are participating on GEF's Outlook. Etah Ewane, Batimu and Etime Godwill. I appreciate your views and let's keep the conversations going.
