      Thanks, Doctor.

      Like millions, I hope so but how can it be when the party that represents the majority of Yorubaland at the national level despite the long collective wish, suddenly decide “it’s not a priority …” – an echo of the president’s Northern say-so?

      Like you, however, may be we should not lose hope; we must not but how the change would come remains uncertain; but then, again, the recent words of PDP’s Deputy Senate President Ekweremadu could offer a ray of hope?
