She saved her daughters from the explosion that rocked Lagos today but couldn’t make it.

In times of tragedies, are left to themselves.
No Fed Govt presence.
Their utility services exist only on paper.
Days after, they give press conferences, using big grammar.

Such is the unfortunate state of this self acclaimed giant of Africa

Bethlehem

I still saw sister Henrietta yesterday as she was hurrying about, trying to organize the students writing exams at the school and also trying to get the students ready for me to come for their writing workshop. I didn’t know that was the last time I will see and talk to her 💔💔
