|Ibrahim wishing "Happy Valentine's Day" / "Vote for me"|
The most awaited Valentine's Day happened yesterday. Lovers had good reasons to cheer about it. There would be celebration in the course of the day. Actually one politician thought he could make use of the opportunity to wish everyone "Happy V Day / Vote for me" which is an interesting way to hijack the event.
Is he speaking to my wife? Then I shall be worried and will definitely not vote for him!
Is he bringing Valentine's day on par with Halloween, Christmas, New Year, Easter, Eïd etc…? In any case this was a colorful and smiling message from an expert in circumstantial greetings (he has already ventured into happy neighbor, happy new Year, Happy Xmas and is perhaps busy preparing happy Easter in case the elections are postponed again?).
That was a good way to stand out!
Serious Valentine's Gift
Last Friday, with some colleagues a discussion broke out on what to offer for Valentine's. I suggested flowers. Forget it, they said unanimously, if we do that, our wives will beat us with the bunch of flowers. Nigerian women need something more serious like a smartphone, a dinner in a nice restaurant, etc…
In any case avoid roses with thorns ;-)

JO's green face continuing moving
Troubling poster of the current president in black and green. Green is certainly on of the colors of Nigeria. Is that supposed to make him look like a venerable uncle or perhaps like Lionel Ritchie?
