I do not wish the above scenario for anybody(yes! even the devil). Sometimes i feel I'm too technologically dependent - CNN,facebook,twitter,WinMO e.t.c and i imagined a world without my mobile phone and notebook.
You really have to be careful what you wish for. A few weeks after the "thought", My phone got stolen and wasnt returned ( I live in Lagos, duuuh). I said to myself at least I still have my laptop. 2 weeks was all i needed, NEPA( PHCN wats the difference) sent us some mad voltage and my motherboard got burnt! I felt like a big fool throughout dat week - no NEPA meant no TV, excercise meant sweat till d evening breeze cooled you.
My life was literally in shambles so I found something worthwile and un-relying on electricity to do. SLEEP. Believe me it became fun to sleep I would wake up in the morning to have my bath, then sleep again. Before I forget the reason my phone got lost was because I could not charge it while there was power so the battery died and I could not even call it.
Sometimes, we should sit back and ask ourselves this question: What if someone plans and exexutes a firesail( that thing in die hard 4) and all communication and power and gas lines are down, Can we survive?
Please Do not forget to tweet #lightupnigeria today UP NEPA!

Sometime ago we heard OBJ commissioned a contract to fix this problem.But its 2 years since OBJ left office and nothing (absolutely) nothing has been done! As i write this article i have to run on a generator.
I sat down to think about this. If the power problem is fixed, it means no generators, so generator and oil companies will have a drop in revenue.
These people will do anything to keep their businesses running so dey can make money..derefore they have to bribe PHCN officials and the necessary people so they can keep making money!
THEY ARE THE REAL REASON WE DON'T HAVE LIGHT!...and they deserve to be SHOT!

"Guys, I'm, shutting down and switching to small gen ooh, Print whatever you have to print now" I'm already getting used to that at exactly 5:00 pm everyday...nd I won't lie..its very ANNOYING! But thinking about it you can't blame the poor man (he works in admin and finance..so his job is to save the company some money). Diesel now costs about N120 per litre...assuming we use approx. 50 litres per day...dis amounts to N6,000 everyday 5days a week...spending 30,000 a week multiplied by 52 weeks a year is about 1,560,000 a year! Plus we emitt enough carbon di-oxide to kill the whole of Lagos if trapped.NOTE: I did not even add the amount of fuel we spend on using the small generator.
I hope some1 in government sees this question. WHY DONT WE HAVE 24HRS ELECTRICITY IN NIGERIA!
