USA Africa Dialogue Series - Today's Quote

Segun Adeniyi's recent book reiterated what is already known, which is that powerful forces wanted Jonathan out of the way, and he gave way because if he had insisted, many would have died.  Is that not heroic?  Even if we insist that that is cowardice, it saved the nation from bloodbath and if it takes cowardice to achieve that,  then cowardice in some circumstances can be heroic.  Igbos say that "ana ano na ulo onye ujo na ele ihe  one ike mebiri"(we stand in the compound of the coward to watch the destruction carried out by the brave.)
