Many discussed the idea of Facebook as a forum for feedback.
God bless you sir for running a participatory government. This is epoch-making in nature.Josiah Ogbonnaya Nwafor
How can the ordinary Nigerian, the poor have access to the report?. Electricity bills have shot through roof for power not consumed, Lagos-Ibadan expressway is still in disrepair, people are losing their jobs in millions on daily basis, those who are working are like slaves in their father land, meanwhile corruption and graft is on the increase, your advisers are abusing those who offer your govt advise. Mr President please try to reconnect to the masses whose mandate you say you are carrying.facebook.com
Others praised him for opening his initiatives up for critique.
You can do better Mr. President, but don't let your detractors make you lose your focus, we are behind you.John Agaji Aggrey

Many of the commenters debated issues with the country's power supply. The Minister of Power recently
the current power situation in Nigeria a "nightmare".
Really your administeration has done well sir,but one major problem we are still trying to grapple with its persistent challenges is in the power sector,till this moment many areas in Warri are in darkness.Abel Okoduwa
Mr. President, you are trying concerning the transformation. The only issue that can transform the nation, say 75%, is POWER. It is the engine oil of other transformations.Adewale Vincent
I don't need to read it, all i have observed is that electricity has improved, kudos for revitalizing the railway transport, federal roads are getting better. Now health sector is still poor-just lost my sister during delivery in abuja. Uneployment still high. You are doing well despite facing unparalled security challenges.Matthias Zakka
