It feels so awkward greeting my faithful and relentless blog readers “Happy New Year!” on the last day of January, 2012. I have missed you all, though I could not resist keeping a rather low profile online in the last six weeks. Apart from the need to spend the first month of the year retreating and quietly planning for the journey ahead, I have still struggled with a nagging anti-writing spirit that does not want to leave any time soon. But, all izz well!
We started this year, rudely awakened by the federal government of Nigeria’s removal of fuel subsidy. After a long-drawn battle that claimed precious lives, the citizens did not win a reversal to the initial 65NGN, but a statement had been made: that we as a people can come together with one voice and protest badly-timed and ill-conceived government policies and much more. It is very painful that the blood of some (innocent) protesters got spilled by some trigger-happy policemen…
This post is meant to be a short introduction to 2012, the year when the world is to come to end according speculations by some folks. A sober fact, nevertheless, is that if death knocks on a man’s door today, the world, for him, would come to end at that instant. Therefore, fret not my people! …I have made a few resolutions to live by for the rest of my stay on this planet and I hope to share some of them with you as the year unfolds.
Thanks everyone for being there for me and always checking back. I am grateful for your support in 2011 and hopefully, from now on, I will be much more active in the blogosphere, making comments on other blogs and engaging with other great minds (bloggers) across the various social media platforms. See you very soon, dear friends. Shallom!
