This week, I have been inundated with several gifts. Let me start by thanking God that people are so kind to me: Thank You, Lord!” Next, I will do an appreciation thread starting with saying “Thank you” to my superstar sister @HenshawKate for these lovely sliders by @Ojbest5. Image

Good morning. I am interested in following the handles of some people that help to shape how Nigeria is run. Let’s start with the National Assembly. We have 360 House of Reps members. Kindly suggest the handles of 36 of them (10%) that are active here and tweet by themselves.
We have 109 Senators. 10% of that figure is 10.9. Let’s round it up to 11. Can you please suggest the Twitter handles of 11 Senators of the Federal Republic that are active here and tweet by themselves (a bit like American legislators).
I think we have about 42 Ministers. 10% of that number is 4.2. Let’s round it down to 4. Can you suggest the handles of 4 Ministers that are active here and tweet by themselves? I think I have more than that number but want to check that I haven’t left any out.

Today, I found an honourable on Twitter. I tweeted at @fccpcnigeria and @lukuenzy said he’ll give me fairly used iPhone 6plus if they respond. They responded. I asked him to redeem his pledge. Some expected him to block me or laughs it off as a joke. He didn’t. Short thread...
I remembered that @Folasheycrown22 had asked me for a phone for her business some time ago. I told her I only focus on widows and orphans and would not be helping her. To put pressure on @lukuenzy, I told him he needed to redeem his pledge so that I could help @Folasheycrown22
To my surprise, he offered to send her the money for the phone: N70,000. I was so impressed by his integrity that I offered to go halves with him. That is how we both contributed N35,000 each to get a phone for @Folasheycrown22.

MY CUSTOMS EXPERIENCE: Coming back into the country, I was pleased how smoothly everything worked at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja. I presented my UK Negative Covid test and proof that I had paid for another test in Nigeria after 7 days. They checked & I was let through. Thread..
Immigration @nigimmigration was smooth. The officers welcomed me back home with a smile. We bantered about which one I had missed most: Jollof rice or Suya? It felt good to be back home. Luggages came out on time too. Free self-service trolley. No stress. Now on to @CustomsNG
As I got to Customs, I was asked to scan my suitcases. Much better than people touching my private stuff and asking me what is there. @CustomsNG officer too was very polite. Of my three suitcases, he was only interested in one. He said I had a gadget in it that he wanted to see.

Let me bring a different perspective to today’s #NaijaKnowledgeX. After a long hiatus, I will do a thread that will tell you what I think about an issue first, before inviting you to comment and share your own knowledge. Today, the topic is “Why Nations Succeed.” Thread...
Many academics, including Acemoglu and Robinson, have written about ‘Why Nations Fail.” They generally theorise that countries that are unsuccessful are successful because of their history and the choices they have made in the last and continue to make.
Essentially, if you choose to embezzle your electricity infrastructure money, you shouldn’t be surprised that you don’t have light. If you don’t respect contracts and have policy somersaults all the time, don’t be surprised that investors haven’t been coming. Simple really.

It is important to have clarity on the issue of #EndSARS, because so many people are muddling up so many different issues:
1. The #EndsSARS protest was concerned with better policing, better governance & a better country. Thread...
2. The #EndSARS protests were peaceful. Perhaps the most peaceful was the one at the Lekki Tollgate. The military action against the Lekki Tollgate protesters, even before the commencement of the curfew, was, therefore, unnecessary and uncalled for.
3. The jail breaks, arson, looting and mayhem around the country before and after the Lekki Tollgate military intervention were not carried out by the peaceful #EndSARS protesters that were demanding for better policing, better governance and a better country.
