  2. It is sad that people think generators are normal... in developed countries you will not hear the sound of one for miles & power outages make the news, but in Nigeria no, we have half deaf children thinking a generator is a normal household item.

  3. Me Again; true. Even though they have them in case of emergencies, they hardly ever use them.
    This made me laugh re-the simplicity of kids.

    This is what irritates me about my country people. Yes, the picture is funny. However the situation is not funny. People are being killed and the issue is being trivialised like this? Why could the child not say he wants to go to school but the cost of petrol is prohibitive?

    I no sabi for people again . We will see how the whole thing plays itself out. Sorry if I am sounding very grumpy and out of sorts, but I am tired of all this.

    I guess that is why Nigerians are the happiest people in the world.

  6. Kemi, if you give (most) kids the option to stay at home and watch cartoons or go to school, what will they choose? Cartoons. In my days, i liked when i was ill (even if it was just a headache) and had to stay home to watch cartoons too. LOL!

    The situation is dire and i don't even want to think of how it may degenerate further than this. Frightening but true.

    My sis you say watch tv? That was in the good old days. With what is happening today, na spit dem go take run the generator?There is no diesel now? I cannot even be sacarstic and say they should use water, as we do not even have potable water in this country. Where did we go wrong?????? Maybe we should slaughter all those in power from 1960 to 1986 and then castrate (since they are the ones that prey on the youth of the nation), and hang the ones from 1986 to present day. You will find that we will not have too many to kill in the second category as we would have dealt with most of them in the first category. Na look we all dey look.

  9. Kemi that will be a revolution a la Jerry Rawlings. Nice. One that will have maximum effect on the ruling elite and minimum damage on the populace/common man. Tea and apples (if we are to believe they were used on the 2 A's to get rid of them to usher in OBJ part two) can be used again for some of them!

  10. God save Nigeria indeed. In my 7 years in the UK, I've only heard the sound of a generator 3 times. 1. To power a temporary traffic light whilst men work on an A road. 2. To power a huge bill board temporarily before it's completion. 3 To power 4 streets for 5 days when the neighbourhood's electric wire was stolen (in the early days of recession).

    Gone are the days when owning generator was a status thing.

    Which way Nigeria?
