Is Okota Local Government Discriminating Against Igbos? I Hope Not

I recently had to go to Okota for business, and as I was driving through, I ran into a lady acquaintance. As we were headed the same way, she quickly got into the passenger’s side of my car and we got chatting. Our conversation turned to the terrible terrible state of roads in Okota, and she said something that shocked me.

She said that people had told her that the Okota local government people have refused to fix the spoilt roads and have also refused to allow the mainly Igbo residents of the area to pool funds together to fix same.

Introducing my daughter to Igbo culture

I saw a DVD musical called Adaeze, featuring young kids singing songs in Igbo and decided to buy it for my daughter to watch, as part of my efforts to introduce her to Igbo culture (Dora the Explorer is okay, but we Igbos and mustn’t forget where we are from). Thankfully, she liked some of the songs.

I would have posted a photo of the DVD package here, but a young kid tore it all up, etc, etc.
