DEMOCRACY DAY: WHERE THE HEAVEN ARE WE?

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm I have been asking mi-self time and time again if there is anything to celebrate on this Democracy Day. For me it is another time to reflect.

Yar’adua our promising leader, took over the mantle of power a year ago and he promised to be a servant leader. I quite like his philosophy. Amidst his tasking roles of leading this country is taking care of his health. I do hope is health is in good shape for the tasking tasks ahead.

One year gone, and I am still yet to see improvement in a lot of areas. Am I hearing wait, the work is going on? Or am I hearing well, things will never change we have being promised several times before?

I am throwing this open to you all, if you have noticed improvement in the following areas of concerns will you share with me?
  1. Electricity, Light, NEPA, PHCN, Light, Light!!!
  2. Inflation
  3. Security
  4. Food scarcity and high prices
  5. Dilapidated educational system
  6. Corruption
  7. Bad roads
  8. Maternal mortality
  9. Affirmative action
  10. Pls add to the list if there is any area of concern you need to add

I guess it will take (naturally) more than a year to make these improvements, giving him the benefit of doubt that is.
