General Board / Kano City etc
« on: July 29, 2005, 12:15:36 AM »
Hi all

I am writing up some stuff about my time in Kano but I have forgotten the names of many of the roads and areas of Kano City, Sabon Gari, Brigade etc.

Can anyone e-mail me a map?

General Board / Enemies of Africa
« on: October 07, 2004, 12:14:05 AM »
I think the words of Yoweri Mosevini who has done so much to stabilise Uganda and get its economy working are worth thinking about.
He says
"The enemy of Africa is no longer the white man with a bible in one hand and a gun in the other. Africa's enemy is the black man with a Mercedes in the garage and a bank account in Switzerland."
Any opinions?

General Board / Kwara advance

I see that the Governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki, is doing in Kwara State exactly what should be getting done in Kano State. He is revolutionising farming in Kwara into major production and he will make Kwara the most prosperous state in Nigeria by doing so.

General Board / Sudan Disaster
« on: June 16, 2004, 11:56:35 PM »
There is a dreadful disaster going on in the south and west of Sudan. Hundreds of thousands of people are threatened with famine and many are already dead, murdered by militias in the command of the Sudanese government. What is happening is genocide. The militias are arab Sudanese and they are killing the black Sudanese. They are driving all the people off their land and out of their villages to starve in the bush or be shot if they return to their homes. Many of the women are being raped.
Should not Nigeria and the OAU be demanding that the Sudanese government stop this?

chit-chat / Another joke
« on: June 12, 2004, 12:08:02 AM »
Here'e another joke I heard today.
A man walks onto a bar with a monkey and orders a whisky.
The monkey runs along the bar eating the salted peanuts and snacks put out for the customers.
The bartender shouts "Hey,stop that monkey" and makes a grab for it.
The monkey jumps onto the pool table, grabs the white ball and swallows it.
The man and his monkey are thrown out by the bartender. " Come back when your monkey is better trained" he is told.
The next week the same man comes back to the same bar with his monkey. Once again the monkey runs along the bar grabbing the snacks. This time however it sticks the nuts up its ass before pulling them out again and eating them.
The man and his monkey are put out again. As they leave the bartender asks "Why was your monkey sticking the nuts up its ass before eating them?"
"Oh, he's being checking everything he eats for size since he swallowed your pool ball last week" replied the man.
