Today, I woke up on the wrong side.
Or let me say, I woke up on the wrong side the day before
And didn’t forget not to today.
Yesterday was brief but, like a dwarf with full pregnancy, loaded.
It was the concluding part of the day that seemed most loaded with intrigues to say the least.
It was a fun-filled day, but like a white linen stained with the tears and blood both of joy and grief; it was laced ultimately with a drop of sorrowful tear.
One may wonder what that tear or sorrow was about, but truthfully it wasn’t just about the recent presidential pardon of the former Bayelsa State Governor. Neither was it just about the unceasing killings orchestrated by the notorious Boko Haram.
One may also wonder, how about the recently announced death of Africa’s foremost storyteller, Prof. Chinua Achebe? Well just like the others, this also forms a part of the ingredients that make up a salty meal.
It was that I went into a reality coma, scaled up the fence and brought down warm airs. What if I’d not gone up? “Then cold air is yours for keep. And you won’t believe it if I say you never learn to sing like a bird or fly like one until that very moment when you become a bird.”
I went into a palace of dreams and my emotions deserted me. And in their hiding, they still had a way to betray me. But Olodumare has his way of doing things. It is that betrayal, like that of Jesus, that was needed to bake dreams.
I went into this palace of dreams. But hey, what if I’d not gone into the palace? “Then, the doldrums is for you to visit. And trust me my good boy, that’s not a good place to live, of course, as dold.”
The dream I had in that palace was so sweet that it collected volumes of tears from me, but they were all channelled into a hungry drainage that emptied right back into me.
What’s this dream? I don’t think I know. I may only have an idea at the moment. It unfolds…for the next…
Of note na the yarns of one of the major political parties in Nigeria, wey actually capture the essence of the mood. Find them below:
“Prof. Achebe’s nationalist and democratic credentials were unassailable. He loved Nigeria with a passion and used the platform offered by his global exposure to call attention, time and again, to the years of misrule in his homeland, which must have left a gaping hole in his heart till he breathed his last.

London-based sculptor, Ron Mueck dey unique. Em mind-blowing artworks na wetin we fit term ‘larger-than-life’ sculptures of the human body. You go believe say na real life person you dey see. Na lie o.
Ron Mueck yarn about em Artworks: “I don’t think of them as mannequins. On one hand, I try to create a believable presence; and, on the other hand, they have to work as objects. They aren’t living persons, although it’s nice to stand in front of them and be unsure whether they are or not. But ultimately, they’re fiberglass objects that you can pick up and carry. If they succeed as fun things to have in the room, I’m happy. At the same time, I wouldn’t be satisfied if they didn’t have some kind of presence that made you think they’re more than just objects.”
Gangnam Style, that number one video on youtube wey get the highest number of viewsstill dey pace forward.

The Abuja Securities & Commodities Exchange is (besides the Nigerian Stock Exchange) one of two principal stock exchanges in Nigeria. It is located in Abuja, the country’s capital, and it was founded in August, 2006.
The ASCE is primarily involved with the trading of commodities such as Agricultural produce like maize, sorghum, soya beans, sesame seeds, groundnut and millet as opposed to trading in securities such as bonds and company stock. Also, cash crops like gum Arabic, cocoa and palm produce. There’s also the prospect of expansion beyond Agricultural products as a result of partnership with the Ministry of Mines & Steel Development for the development of the solid minerals sector. Hence, trading in precious stones like gold, tantalite etcetera. This will make many people go into commercial mining of these products and therefore generate employment. Enough of the jargons! What it translates into includes increasing employment opportunities and sector contribution to the nation’s GDP.
