For all the people with a vehicles or have cause to drive at some point, the state of the roads have been very bad. Even the okada riders have their shocks going bad.
In the recent state of events in the country, elections and all, the citizens of Nigeria have all been waiting. Waiting for the much awaited CHANGES we have all been promised.
The times are gone when you only family members sharing a motorcycle (Okada) it has become the norm. The extent of which one can even find Alhaja’s & Alhaji’s sharing bikes with opposite sex of which they are sitting in the middle.
Standards / cost of living, health is so high, yet we don’t get the proper returns.
Can you imagine, living across from Swansea Lake and during Summer, someone plants a big tree outside your window to block your view of the beautiful scenery?
The bad roads from Sabo to Alagbole/Akute (wide ditches in the road enough to swallow the entire front leg of a trailer) , Akute via Denro to Berger (Carpenter construction of a bridge which floods once there is a little rain).
Even Napep’s have issues navigating the roads, so do the motorcycle riders.
On a daily basis, people’s clothes get dirty on the way to work.
That is not even the worst of it. Today, Saturday the 20th June 2015, rain fell half of the day and the river overflowed to the little patch of terrible roads where canoes had to be deployed to pass, okada riders fell into the water with the passengers, cars has water get to their windows, drinking gulps of water and stopped mid-stream, vans and buses had to offload their passengers no matter how little into the water just to ensure a lighter weight to move.
In the frame of mind that the past elections is what prevented the state government (which people were praising before on the commencement of repairs) from completing the roads because they were not sure of being re-elected.
Others thought it was that they had exhausted the budget. However, it is almost a month since the elections have passed, and since the Governor has not been changed, why has the construction not been continued. The hopes and dreams for a better state of our roads is starting to diminish as even myself had to wade through the disgusting water to get to work.
A big shame really as this roads are the major roads linking Ogun and Lagos states in the interior.
Governors, please let us see the much awaited ‘CHANGE’ which we have been promised, and not abandoned projects and streams in place of major roads.

Love is unpredictable.
How it affects or changes us.
Can be gradual or fast.
Sometimes we break the people we love and sometimes they break us.
The ultimate relationship is one with the most sacrifices.
We hurt, we learn,
2006…I know I’ve always felt something for her but we were just friends at the moment…every night became longer than usual cos I yearn to see her face every morning…and the day shorter cos I couldn’t seem to get enough of her presence! Her absence turns my stomach and her presence feels me up that I had no need for physical food…but we were STILL just friends…
2007…Her selfless act of love and care was so intoxicating that I found myself drowning in love but I couldn’t get the words out of my system…I wanted more time around her…LIME and HONEY was her remedy for whenever I had cough and sore throat…then, he came into my life again M. Hamilton, he gave me the courage to step up and make my feelings known to her! I decided a letter would do the trick, but NO…I went back for it cos…

Spoken words written right from my mouth. Definitely, the facts remain that the police force in Nigeria mostly remains a place for touts, uneducated mentally and psychologically.
…… Till then, I cannot for any reason take the police force in Nigeria (MIB) seriously, and a change in their black, ugly, unkept and smelly uniforms
It was sunny in the afternoon and I had to get off from work early cos I wasn’t feeling too well…2:30pm precisely…working in the City of Gidi has its advantages and disadvantages…but today wasn’t a good one! First, my burning temperature. Next, the slow movement of traffic from Ikeja-Along to Dopemu!… I remembered what my friend posted on Facebook the other day,”I am not sorry to say this – I HATE THE NIGERIAN POLICE FORCE!!! They are all bunch of Blood Sucking Corrupt Bastards. Extorting money from citizens going about their legitimate businesses. I wish them all the PAIN and HEARTACHE they inflict on Nigerians!”…all in his own words…I don’t blame him for expressing himself…The Nigerian Policemen have been using the law to justify their wrong doings…I remembered while in the university, a police team drove into our building requesting that we produce the person that just ran…

…… this tends to happen more often than not. The feelings grow, then they don’t.!!
Distance, lack of communication and other things come in-between
Sometimes, meeting and dating someone nearby is always advised but when you need space things get complicated….well, I met a pretty lady online(Facebook) and we kicked it off pretty well…kept poking, sending messages and then the calls started…we hadn’t even met each other when we started having feelings for each other! We decided it was time to get real and be adults about it…we met and she was all I could have ever wanted in a woman. She felt the same way for me(maybe even more).
Then, reality dawned on us. She was more than a thousand kilometers away from me. We always kept in touch via calls and sms but the physical connection wasn’t as strong as we’d have loved it to be! She wanted to spend more time with me and I felt the same way but my responsibilities and her studies wouldn’t allow that to happen! First…
