Dear President @MBuhari, I hope this meets you well. I don’t know if you remember me. My name is Simon. @simonkolawole. Never mind. We will come to that later. Let us briefly journey into history for proper context into why I have chosen to openly write you this morning. In February 2001, I finally met you. I had been appointed the editor of TheWeek, I was looking for a great interview. You came to mind, I met you at your house in Jabi, Kaduna, and we had a very good interview. Remember me now? You said something that reinforced my belief in you.
