Used the #Addis-#Djibouti #Railway for the first time yesterday - it was a pleasant ride. The 8 hour journey started at Lebu Furi Station at 7am and arrived in Dire Dawa at 3pm. A visual thread of the the experience below!
Having bought my ticket at the ticket office, and water from the vendor outside, I waited in the station itself for the train. The station was well equipped.
Boarding was smooth, not too many people around this early on a Monday.

Just a very short thread on #StrengtheningInstitutions in Nigeria:
You have heard this over and over "let us allow strong institution, not strong individuals"...
I put it to you that that fallacy will never work anywhere in the world.
Only Strong men can FIX institutions. 👇👇
Make no mistake, only #StrongMen can build #StrongInstitutions that will eventually run as though AUTOPILOT. #StrongInstitutions don't happen in isolation anywhere in the world....
Gen 2:5 said something very instructive on how God made things to work here on planet earth...👇
Gen 2:5 (NLT)
neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the LORD God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no PEOPLE TO CULTIVATE THE SOIL.

#StrongInstitutions "Soil" will never CULTIVATE itself & become strong suddenly if there's no MAN!
