Abraham Adesanya 1922-2008

Some years ago,I was at the launch of Freedom Jail,a book written by Ayo Opadokun, a former NADECO chieftain. One of the special guests was the late Pa Abraham Adesanya (1922-2008), a lawyer,politician and activist who contributed to the achievement of Nigeria's return to democracy.

I will never forget the story Pa Adesanya told everyone at the event. He told us the story of a man who left Kano or Kaduna and was heading to Lagos. After travelling several miles, he got to Ilorin, he asked "Are we not in Lagos yet?", they told him...we will soon get there, when he got to

A friend once told me why she like posting photos on Facebook.She said when her laptop crashed and she lost her phone, the only place she could get her old pictures was on Facebook.The samething with blogger.  
I snapped this roadside vendor of TV remote control in Ikeja,Lagos.

 You get to see most of your works such as articles and photos from way back because unlike your laptop, blogspot can not crash without adequate notice to users.
So i am going to keep some of them here too for posterity.My canon camera is fantastic!Easy capture,good images, especially if you know how to handle the settings.
 The resolution has been reduced.You can steal images but respect yourself,! 
I captured this newspaper vendor at Ogba in Lagos.

Questions Over Oritsejafor jet involvement in alleged arms deal and Nigerians arrested with $9.3 million in South Africa

By Wale Adedayo
$1m is conservatively N163m. so, $9.3m is N1,514,502,583.61 at today's exchange rate of $1 : N163. It means almost N2 billion cash found its way out of Nigeria in two private jets. And the jets took off from Abuja. Reports are suggesting one of the jets belong to Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) president, Ayo Oritsejafor. I am not bothered about Oritsejafor''s involvement. 'Men of God' get as e be in today's Nigeria.
The issues:
1. Those caught were, two Nigerians, and an Israeli citizen. This presupposes that The Presidency was involved. The management of security around President Goodluck Jonathan involves Israelis. Such a plane cannot leave Abuja without the topmost clearance. Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, who has immunity from prosecution and arrest, had his plane stopped for political reasons.

2. I am not against fast-tracking the purchase of quality arms for
