    DEAR NORTHERN OTONDOS

    I know it’s been a while since I posted here but first, yayyyy! Congratulations to the latest otondos in town. I know somebody is probably feeling like why otondo but well, I’m sure otondo sounds better than hearing a Northern Soldier call you a white fowl believe me and moreover, you guys haven’t been sworn in yet, so, you are unofficially a corp member. Second, a little diversion. . . I know I said something about bringing back a series, I didn’t forget and also, it feels so unbearable having to stay this long to post another blog post but mehn, I have been quite engaged. A lot has been…

    My Public Transport Diaries Episode 1 – I B A D A N

    I B A D A N . . . the only city whose garage I once passed the night! I remember that month, it was December. I had left Kebbi past 9, entered Ojo some minutes after 12.00a.m. I had to sleep at the garage with my eyes half shut and my mind wide awake waiting for 6am to knack so I could start Abeokuta journey. . .

You know that laptop has really tried and I…

    Welcome to Overflow!

    Okay, hold up! This heading actually made me chuckle a little bit but I kinda liked it! I think the raining season is approaching here in Kebbi! It has been raining for quite a while. I mean this should probably be the 5th to 6th time and trust me, this ain’t no small rains. . . and whenever it’s about to rain, a sandstorm always come handy!. You can’t afford to spread your clothes outside or else it’s a gunner! Like twice, I’ve had to wake up in the middle of the night, unlock the mini gate to pack my clothes inside say 2am, 3am etc. cos the sandstorm is…
