Lagosians were needlessly inconvenienced yesterday (Thursday). It dawned on me the need for public officers generally to be more sensitive to the people we serve.
It is particularly worrisome that this is not an elected person. I think we all must check how security agencies use the movement of high officers, especially VIPs, to disrupt citizens and taxpayers, whose money were used to fuel all the vehicles and all the apparatus that we used to block the roads against them.
It is an issue that calls for greater sensitivity. I understand the need to protect the VIPs, but it must be done in a way that it does not inconvenience anybody.
It should not get to the level that we close the roads in the state because VIPs want to pass.
If they let us know earlier, traffic can be managed and citizens here respect their leaders and they will gladly allow them to go. I don’t think they deserve to be kept on the road in a standstill for five hours.”

Kano State Government is sponsoring a matchmaking scheme where single, divorced and widowed women can sign up to find husbands. Over a 1000 women in Kano have joined the scheme and more than twice that amount of men have applied to be given a wife.
After the couples pick each other, they will be allowed to court for just a few weeks after which they will tell the scheme organizers if they want to marry each other or not. If they agree to marry, then their names will be included in a mass wedding that will be held by the end of April 2012 and will be financed by the Kano State Govt.
But get this, after the wedding, if the man wants to back out of the marriage, the state govt will fine him N1.5m. So I guess for most of these men, this one na marriage for life! lol

So it happened that I came across a rather humorous trending topic on twitter, #ifihad30millionNaira. And if you’re anything like me, I usually stop by to check what the trending topics are from day to day the way a newspaper addict passionately checks the front cover of a daily for the slightest glimpse of interesting headlines. And like the picture described above, I indeed saw an interesting headline…oh sorry…I mean trending topic that almost got me wishing. But abeg, if wishes were cars…I would have 10 Lamboghinis.
