Another October 1st is here, the president has delivered his
7am nation wide broadcast, though he was looking pale, due to the Boko Haram
insurgency, but that apart, we Nigerians tend to forget that in 2003, Libya
under Ghadafi, sued Italy for colonising them, Libya won! Italy were made
to pay hem damages worth more than 200 million pounds.

We Nigerians celebrate
independence in an era of neo colonialism, puppet governance, and imperialism. Our independence, is yet to take us to our deserved place among the comity of
states, we should start looking inwards, and start asking a lot of questions,
because truly our independence is a laughing stock just like an endowed
slave caught by his master, helped his master develop and was freed but is yet
to develop. What a hilarious scenario!. We need to wake up because there is nothing
to celebrate in backwardness. Happy new month to you all.
