The Heavens are Silent

“I really liked the advertisement campaign of the DVD party.”

“Hmm, I thought the advert bereft of any message, what with all the money at their disposal.”

Civil Robbery

I hate elections. Well, not quite. After all, no one desires to be an onlooker when important decisions are being made. But Nigeria elections, in my opinion, are an elaborate charade woven in expensive foolery, needless violence and deliberate corruption.
