My sight is progressively diminishing, and I've to discontinue regular use of the computer." Chidi continued.
"Being a CEO or President of a internet company requires the regular use of a computer.

At anytime, his advises is welcomed with utmost respect." said Chika Nwaogu. "I would have decided to remain as Co-CEO, but I don't want to be a liability. I don't want to ask for every little information or data I need.
