Yesterday I wrote here about how lawless motorists drove against oncoming traffic very early in the morning on Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, thereby putting themselves and others at risk. It is saddening that humans cannot just obey simple rules and laws unless when closely monitored. It breaks my heart every time I see things as commonplace as a sane adult throwing dirt out of their moving vehicles; littering aside, some of the stuff they throw out like bottles or corn cobs can actually damage other vehicles and/or cause accidents.
I learnt a certain state governor was involved in an accident yesterday because his lead convoy car ran a red light. I really hoped they won’t sustain grievous injuries and that the reckless driver of the vehicle would be well enough to be prosecuted for breaking an important traffic rule and endangering the lives of others. I don’t care if you are driving a Saint, obeying traffic rules cannot be compromised nor overemphasized.
Have you noticed we now have at least 80% stable electricity supply within Nigeria? Beyond the thought that we now have a no-nonsense president in place, not much has been done to bring about this miraculous turn-around. I haven’t heard of salaries being increased, more people being employed nor better equipment being purchased to generate this much electricity, but the knowledge that with incompetence and corruption on the job comes punishment, everyone responsible has sat up and are doing right by Nigerians.
I believe we can get things right in Nigeria. I believe in us. Yes, we can.
