So I know who is now president of Nigeria. I am interested in this country. I do not want the country, customs and people. But the full biography of the president do not know. It is interesting to find out the facts of his life. All of his family. Where he had worked before he became president. What interests him. Based on information in the text of the policy he is no stranger. After spending so much time in leadership positions and learning all about power, it is no one must know how to act. Country wonderful and should thrive. Young professionals should be decent work. Young simyam housing. So the president can be proud of.
