Nigeria is an amazing country.
We hit 0 megawatts of generated electricity yesterday according to Punch newspapers. For three hours.
But its nothing. Its no biggie. Its no biggie that Africa’s largest economy, 180-million-people strong, wasn’t generating enough electricity to power a phone.
It is no biggie that even if we decide to abandon government’s source of power, we’d still not get enough fuel to buy, because the queues won’t be disappearing till May and our NNPC guy, Ibe Kachikwu is not a magician.
It is no biggie that Fashola no longer addresses the press as much as he was doing when he was governor of Lagos.
We understand, must be the workload.
And it’s no biggie that Muhammadu Buhari is sitting very still, because his body language appears to be saying nothing regarding this.
Must be the jet lag. We understand.
Lets not even begin to talk about how a budget meant for running 2016 has not yet been signed, but a quarter of the year is already gone.
It’s those people meddling with it again. We understand. We’ll just go on with leaving our lives. If we hit 0 again, and there’s no fuel, there’d still be musical instruments, and we can dance till we forget our sorrows.
How amazing can a bunch of human beings get?
