well, Nigerians are settling into the disturbing sight of long queues at petrol filling stations all across major cities in the country! To think that “we” stood up to the arbitrary price increase in petroleum products and the rot inherent in the government run NNPC, earlier in January and yet we do not have any change whatsoever in the situation only goes to show that the “people” have been disenfranchised across board. simply put; if majority of the people do not support increase in fuel price and yet, either by omission or commission we are tending toward the “rejected” price, then my earlier assumption is true! feel free to drop your comments. thanks
The mainstream news media and social media are agog with the activities and results of the Ondo state Gubernatorial election, its apparent who the winner is. I thought to my self; what was all the noise before the elections? some call it politicking, I call it ‘politricks’. Social media has been a beautiful tool in monitoring the elections and that has helped to reduce incidences common to Nigerian electoral process plus INEC did a great job, thou there were Hiccups overall I think the process was great. lets all hope we wont wake up to a ‘burning’ state by tomorrow.
Its independence day (not that I celebrate, but its worthy of note) and yet I think to my self; this country cant still give me steady power supply of a stable economy after 52 years of its existence, we have helped other countries in Africa to solve their problems but we can seem to help our selves. Lokoja is flooded so also is Anambra yet Nigeria and Nigerians were quick to offer aid and advice to the United states during hurricane Katrina, we did the same during the Tsunami that hit Japan now its our ‘turn’ and we seem too dumbfounded to even main stream the information let alone act decisively about it.
