A City You’ve Visited
Of all the cities I have been to on earth, I have to write about just one. That in itself, is a difficult task because many places come to mind.
Benin City, where I was born and brought up, comes to mind. There is also Warri, where I spent 6 years in secondary school. There’s Lefke, Gemikonagi, Kip Karpaz and Alefkeyası, all of which I visited in Northern Cyprus. And Istanbul, where I spent 5 nights. Or London?
Then there are cities like New Delhi where I visited for a day, and Gurgaon where I stayed for 3 week, both in India. There is also Ibadan, where I spent almost 2 weeks back in the year 2012. I also spent 2 separate nights in Cairo back in the year 2009. But of all these places, I think one city worth writing about, is Cotonou.

I don’t like to say that I’m always right, but more often than not… I usually am right. But I’ll be honest, that I’m often right, but not always for the right reasons. So hear me out this time.
Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) or petrol, now sells officially in Nigeria at 145 naira per liter. And this has gotten everyone on the uproar. Some folks want to protest, and some are silently fine with it.
Some are condemning the federal government for this decision. But me, I have a different opinion about all this. As a matter of fact, I expected (or should I say, predicted) that this would happen.
Here’s my take on the whole fuel price hike thus far. Continue reading The Fuel Price Hike in Nigeria: My Opinion

A Talent You Have
The topic of talents is something I have not been able to address well in my life, because I don’t know if I have any. In fact, I don’t think I have anything I can specify as a talent! Even so, there are certain things that I can do, but I do not call them talents. I actually don’t know what the word means, so let me look it up right now…
So, from this definition, a talent is a skill that comes naturally to me. So that’s like a skill that I don’t need much time to learn or practice, I assume. Now that’s out of the way… let’s talk about one talent that I have. Continue reading I Make Near-Accurate Predictions!
