It is only in Nigeria that Law-makers will allocate funds for purchasing of torch-lights! Are you laughing? well Nokia too. That is the exact reason why torch-lite phones or Tee-series as I call them are bestsellers in Nigeria. Darkness will scare most people in other parts of the world but a true Nigerian will go through this without complaint considering even prisoners in civilised nations are not subdued to this! It is something we experience everyday so what is the big deal! Imagine,last week, a Nigerian act, Ikechukwu "Killz" tweeted that the power supply in Washington went off (maybe because they were Nigerians having a Conference or was it a meeting? closeby.) Are we that attractive to darkness?
Light overcomes darkness, though the Power holders are trying so hard to prove that wrong! It is now so annoying all you see and hear on Commercials are Fridges that last longer with no light, other options of generating electricity etc. Our being called the Giant of Africa is more like a kick in the butt to the African Continent. Such a pity we are living far below the standards set by our Heroes past.
