    Don't they think those Lagos emergency numbers are too long... Who has time to dial 7 numbers in an emergency and if you are dialing from a GSM phone, you have to add 01 making it 9 numbers.

    Didn't they think of why oyinbo man made his own emergency numbers 3 digits and they are numbers you can memorize..... I'm just saying

    One cannot help but notice the euphoria gripping Nigerians both at home and in the diaspora at the forthcoming 47th Birthday of our Nation Nigeria. Surely this euphoria is misplaced given the goings on in our beloved country. The saying a fool at 40 is a fool forever and yet we are approaching our 50th birthday and yet still behave foolishly in handling the affairs of our nation. I shall in the next 3 years be approachiung my 40th birthday i hope and pray that by then i have shed the toga of my foolish ways. Food for thought whilst you all enjoy the forthcoming soirees!
