Hi folks. It's been quite a while hasn't it. I know y'all have missed my dry wit and vastly superior intellect. (I'm allowed to psyche myself, right?) I'm currently a corper-shun (whatever the hell that means) which has severly limited my free time, and consequently, limited my online time, and consequently, my ability to frequently update my blog. Consequently... Remind you of anyone? I'll give you a hint - he was never seen in public without his customised Ray Bans.
Anyway, since I've been gone, third term has come and gone. IBB has declared he'll be running for president come 2007. He apparently wants a chance to put his past wrongs right and reclaim his lost place in the hearts and minds of all Nigerians. He's really sorry for all the things he did (insert healthy guffaw here), and would really like us all to know that he's now a changed man (insert preferred cliche here).
Also, the political scene has truly heated up with the assasinations of Funsho Williams in Lagos, and Daramola in Ekiti. That these latest crimes will probably never be solved have received the incredibly short odds from William Hill (a reputable online betting firm) of 1/1. IGP Sunny Ehindero (a misnamed fellow if I ever saw one) trotted out the flogged to death slogans of "no stone left unturned" and "no effort will be spared" etc. If these guys worked in a quarry, they'd put Fred Flintstone out of work in an hour.
In the wake of these killings, no fewer than 307 aspiring politicians have applied for Police protection (insert incredulous laugh here). It is obvious to a blind man on the street that if Bola Ige, a serving Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, could be murdered while being guarded by a full detachment of Mobile Policemen, then the last place anyone should seek protection (especially a politician)is from the Police.
Mayhap an ethnic militia of some sort would be a more credible alternative...
P.S. Congrats to my man Chx. They tried, but they just couldn't hold you down. Remember to pack ya sweater sha o. I hear say that side dey cold well well. Unless you get hot water-bottle... :D
