You would have to forgive me for doing a little off the workload of the NLC president. It’s just that we need to check ourselves first. Every single one is responsible for what happens to us all.
Whenever we have reasons to celebrate worldwide, gift-giving and gift-receiving are almost a major characteristic. In Africa, believe it or not, it’s worse and in Nigeria... it’s the worst. Firstly, in Nigeria everything is a reason to celebrate; Getting married, getting pregnant, giving birth, 1st, 10th,13th, 16th, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 45th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th, 90th, 100th birthdays, death and yearly remembrance parties. That’s different from getting admission into any institution(mental, marital, academic or professional..), matriculation, graduation, Thank God It’s Friday, after-exams, new house or car and too many other things I can’t remember now.
What are we using all these for? When we’ve got jobs to create and too many people starving in the world. Take a look around and you will see only too many places to put that money to better use...
