This comedy of errors will soon end. No shaking at all. This won't solve the problem of not paying salaries for over 15 months. No retreat no surrender. Truth is my only Defence".

WHAT SOME MEN ARE GOING THROUGH THESE DAYS

Image
I was born on the first Sunday in the month of June 1981 in Nigeria. My parents, just like an average citizen could manage to afford a Government maternity hospital in Lagos Island, many of you born during this time know the hospital I am talking about. I was the second child of my parents. On the day of my delivery at the maternity home, there were many child births but the staff on duty were not enough to give all the assistance needed to the new mothers and especially their babies. Due to lack of space, human resources and time, female babies were only allowed to stay in the hospitals longer than male counterparts.

Some 2 years later, although I was still a child, my little sister arrived and my mother’s friend too had a baby girl. We all grew together.

In the primary school the three of us attended, their toilets were better and neater. The two girls always had a rain coat when it was raining and I often was without one. During play, if the girls cried, I was always held responsibl…

1) Guys should start seeing ladies differently.
