  5. PMB.....well done . However,all thanks to Nigerians for crying out and you have simply toed our path but not fully. All those that are part of his reinstatement and promotion must be brought to book. This is a rare opportunity you have to prove to the world that the anti - corruption program is real and not targeted at oppositions. Get him arrested and hand him over to the EFCC.
