Usually our President or any President of a People for that matter speaks to express himself/herself in times of national jubilation and also in times of crisis. The media (including the state media) has reported the ongoing industrial action and please by the teachers for a revision to their salaries, to be an occassion of the highest national importance. However, the President who spoke to the nation live on TVM last night, at the inauguration of DhiTV, refrained from even hinting on the issue. His official website has no mention of it.
Only one question went through my mind as I watched a part of the live coverage: Why does the President continue to be silent on the plea by teachers?

President is demanding pay increase for the time he spend as a teacher at ameeniyya during nasir era , plus he did teach at mauhadh …..his compensation will cost millions , thats the reason for his silence …silence speaks louder than words

President MAG is an actor. His actions are directed by his directors and he does not worry much on anything other than his acting

Maumoon was once a teacher. he taught in a poor-grade Nigerian school and learnt Fanditha there. all teachers must follow his example and try to be President. that way they can earn over 70,000 rufiyaa a month and get their children educated in UK and then put them in executive jobs in the third-class good-for-nothing Government of His. Allah curse you Maumoon.

normally he wants to be the father of all good things (which is very few) happened to the country during his rule but do not want to be a father of all the bad things. for that, he wants people to take responsiblity. how nice
