Words of Exaltation
Topic is on presidential handlers, President Mohamadu Buhari speech which is nothing to write home about and our attitude towards public office holders; hence they see themselves as demigods and see us the citizens as fools. A lot of things happen in the corridors of power, hence most government officers know the right things to do but can not help the situation.
