IT IS TIME

I wanted to delay this post because once I put it up, it means as from my next post, I am fully back to blogging.

Okay. Blogville. This is where one door closes and another opens. This post makes me 100 post old. Yes. It's an anniversary.

So I'm off to figure out what my return will be all about, because, I haven't got a clue. I don too make mouth.

There have been lots of changes in my life lately, so I want my blogs (uzezi and aroundlagos) to be affected also by the changes.

And in the spirit of anniversary, you are free to ask me one question you have always wondered about me, and I will do my best to be honest. 30+ actually gave me that award as a honest blogger o! lol.

Alright. See you all on the other new side of me.

PS: This blog have always allowed anonymous comments, but anonymous questions won't be answered.

Not A Man

My Return is two post away from this one. God don't let me be lazy.

Now to this post.....
After Obama won, Naapali robbed it in on how Obama’s convoy passed in front of him and stuff like that.

Last week Tuesday, I got a chance to do likewise so I could blog about it.

The German president was in Nigeria visiting and that Tuesday morning, the president left Abuja to visit with Gov. Fashola of Lagos state. From the international airport road down through Mobolaji Bank Anthony Road, into Toyin and then Allen and all the way to the Secretariat at Alausa, the German and the Nigerian Flags where together, designing the roads as they were tied to poles. I had gone to GLO’s office for something. When I was leaving, the party started.

The LASMA bike guys were out and parading. Sirens were on full blare. They cleared the roads that the Germans and their Nigerian escorts will take.

So I stood, cos I wanted to see. I hated the fact that my camera was so far inside the travelling bag with me. Had I gotten a picture, I would have done better than Naapali.

The nutshell is that I saw the German president as all the cars actually passed less than ten feet away from me. Better still; the windows weren’t so tinted, so I saw to my satisfaction.

Later in the day, I was having a very delicious lunch with a friend and couldn’t resist feeling so important and recounting how the German leader passed by me.

‘I actually saw him,’ I said. ‘The windows weren’t so tinted.

I was about to say another car carrying someone who must have been the German first lady was directly behind the German president’s car when my friend looked at me and said...

‘Uzezi, the German president is a woman’

LISTEN

where the hell have you been? That seem to be the question that i am asking myself. Did i just blog to say blogville is the most wonderful family, and the next minute i am MIA?

I dey o! just things here and there happening. Very plenty exciting things going on with me and in my life, plus the fact that GLO is trying to frustrate me with their internet connectivity. God pass dem.

Anyway, I am planning my return. This is not it. the post after this one wont be it either. neither is the one after that. But it is near and you will know when I am fully back in the bossom of blogville.

I am still praising God for what He has done for America. They think Obama has inherited a failing economy. Well he has. But i believe that the failing economy of USA will be Obama's victory. God uses afflictions to lift the unexpected people and bring glory to Himself. That is what will happen. In the midst of the celebrations, there are the ones waiting for Obama's failure. Just so the race can be mocked. But God has spoken and it is final. He uses the little things, to put to shame very great things of the world. In Obama, the strength and hands of God is going to work like the world has never seen it before, because at the end of the day, God's name must be glorified.

And He is coming here too. Yes. God is coming to do the same in our beloved Nigeria. The economy of this country will work. I dream of the day Americans will want to have their kids here, just so they can be citizens of this great nation Nigeria. I pray I live to see the day.

Our God is an Awesome God. The 'In God We Trust' that the Americans chant, has never been meaningful as it will be henceforth.

I have said my piece.
