Words on Marble
“This flood is all over the world, Asia, Europe, I know that Nigeria flooding is bad. And when we have such disaster, food is not the problem; do not make food your priority. If you eat once, thank God, I know that none of you would die of hunger here. Before the middle of November, the water would have receded.”
- President Goodluck Jonathan
