    Surprise? More like, I dare you not to show up. In other news, if these men were white, we would be yapping about white men running the world by now. Where are the women in our politics who are not wives?

    This picture is a reminder of the disproportionate number of man vs women in both political offices and leadership positions!. We need more women in politics. Come 2019 it should be non-negotiable!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yet they could only come up with a miserly looking cake on Nigeria’s birthday.

      I suppose they unwittingly decided to remind us of the unimportance of Nigeria as a whole, compared to the extravagance reserved for its “leaders”.

      This is just your politicians being true to form, as always

    So they couldn’t get any of these bakers to make the independence day cake. It shows how much we value or respect our country….
