Jonathan and the detractors

Whatever it is that is in human or spirit form that has been confusing our leaders, please I pray you with all that you hold sacred, I pray you with bent knees, I pray you with drooped head, I bow and tremble in total supplication to spare our President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan.
