It has been quite a year. It seemed as if there was a competition for most bizarre conduct of 2017. There was outrageous behavior by individuals and by groups. What’s scary is that we don’t know if 2018 will be saner.
Even as an individual, the National Arts Theatre holds fond memories of my childhood. How can it not mean anything to Nigeria? No to that sale.
You don’t have to be a prophet to expect that Nigerian politicians will make 2018 all about 2019. We might end up seeing bad governance because of a focus on 2019, and maybe some good governance because of a desire to win points ahead of 2019.
Nobody got off the bus called Nigeria in 2017. As a matter of fact the subject of getting off the bus was dropped or silenced before the end of the year.
