  1. You are the breed our country needs to move forward: your humanitarian gesture in getting your fellow Nigerians home from xenophobic attacks in South Africa but also your message in Congress today about ethnic harmony in Nigeria. It is exactly the antidote that a plural society like Nigeria needs especially at these religiously and tribally polarizing times!
