Chxta's Wall: 2011 Honours List

Today is the last day of the year 2011. For me, this year was one that began with promises, and got better as it went along. There were a few lows of course, but the ending is very hopeful. In this year, my profile went up, in this year, I met two Presidents, and told both of them my mind. One of them appreciated the talk, the other, well time will tell.

Most importantly, in 2011, I rediscovered God. Granted it took a few slaps, and someone I didn't know having to die a few feet away from me in order to make it happen, but something had to be my own "Road to Damascus" moment. I pray for the soul of the man who was murdered on the night of Friday, November 18, 2011. May he rest in peace. Amen.

I get a strong feeling that the year ahead will be better for me as a person, but eventually, only time can tell.

The coming year, 2012 is going to be a pivotal year for me, my country and all who inhabit it. I really hope things turn out well, you see, much as I am not very optimistic I hope that the worsening economic climate and the security issues would give way to peace and prosperity. I must acknowledge that I have to do my bit in building this 'ere space I call home.

I'd like to extend my appreciation to the following people who helped make 2011 tick for me. I hope I haven't left anyone out of this list, if I have, no vex. I don dey old, so brain no too dey retain like that again. Let's see if we can in 2012, reach for the stars...

Tanker drivers lock down Lagos


The problem I have with these tanker drivers is that they have become a law unto themselves. Even worse is that they keep protesting for the wrong reasons. LASTMA from my own observations hardly stop you if you are obeying traffic rules. Note that I accept that the LASTMA people can go overboard in their actions.


Question of the day: why have the tanker drivers and NURTW never protested the state of our roads?
