  1. Thanks for your write-ups. Your write-up sounds like one who doesn’t live in Nigeria. I can’t attack you for that. Is it in Nigeria that one can choose a place to work? Come and see Geologist who are secondary school teachers. Man-know-man is what gives u a job in Nigeria. Our political and economic system needs complete overhaul. Nigeria is a place where what remains is complete revolution and bloodshed. I can’t wait for that time to come.
