“The challenges before him are enormous. He has two wars to deal with and he has the greatest financial crisis since the great depression. He has the financial crisis against him but he is an extremely intelligent peson with great confidence who I think will be up to the challenges.
I also think he has a chance to come out of this as one of the greatest presidents in our history because what a President needs for greatest are great challenges and he has these. If he can deal with these challenges, we may be seeing one of the greatest Presidents in American history”
–Sir Walter Carrignton, Former US Ambassador to Nigeria, in an interview published in the Guardian
