NIGERIA AIR! A PLAN TO GET IT WRONG AGAIN?

N

I was involved in a near fatal accident in January 2017. I was rushed to Gbagada General Hospital and was rejected without any form of medical assessment because there was no bed or something, I was told I was conscious but I can’t remember A THING.

Chike! Chimamanda! Chimobi and Others.

C

I know a little bit about everything and that’s the problem with me. Whenever there is a conversation, I always jump out of the blues with my factual perspective, I submit assertions and arrive at conclusions without even listening enough or sampling other perspectives and experiences because as far as I am concerned, I already know what they know, maybe a little bit but it is good enough.

I somehow made it to the Forte Oil Gas Station in UNILAG to make my intentions known to the management with respect to being shortchanged yesterday when I bought petrol at the station. A queue was still in place but since I had no intention to buy fuel this time, I drove in and parked at a very distinct spot so no one will think I’m trying to jump the queue. I walked up to the office like...

UNILAG Forte Oil Gas Station… The Biggest Unarmed Robbery Spot in Africa.

U

I had to make a detour into UNILAG yesterday as part of a pizza bout with my kiddo and unfortunately (very unfortunate), I noticed that the Forte Oil gas station opposite the opposite of the New Hall and Access Bank was selling petrol so I made the turn and joined the queue.

Mr. President, Your Silence Is Not Golden At about 4:30am, some Fulani Cattle Rearers invaded an Agatu community, a peaceful community in Benue State.
