I don't blame anyone who don't see any reason to celebrate
Nigeria the big country at 54years. A dad at 54 who has not provided a good
quality education, basic amenity for a single child that he has; is never to
call a 70% caring dad. He must be referred as a lazy and inconsiderate dad.

only celebrating because they are alive for today, not because there have been
any much massive achievement. The height of poverty is speedily increasing in
the country; at least, those are what the government should face not
