Reactions As President Buhari's Superb Handwriting Surfaces Online

Joe Igbkwe, an aide to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday, March 22, disclosed President Muhammdu Buhari's handwritten message at Ibeju Lekki, Lagos, where he commissioned the Dangote Fertiliser Plant.

President Buhari wrote the note after the tape cutting ceremony of the multi-billion dollars project which will unarguably act as a catalyst for Nigeria's economic boom.

He added that the commissioned plant proves that with visionary and enterprising citizens, nothing is impossible for Nigeria.

Ralph O. Ahanonu:

"Samuel Omolola Edema. Dangote is both a visionary leader and visionary Nigerian citizen and entrepreneur.
"That's not in dispute. If PMB had set out to quote the author verbatim, he would have used inverted commas/speech marks/quotation marks to denote this. He preferred to write something slightly different. I hope you re not insinuating it is a slip/mistake."

Segun Fagbemi:

"This is the handwriting of a septuagenarian? This is too perfect."
