There is this piece of news that President Umaru Yar’Adua and five governors of the North-West zone were yesterday thrown into darkness at the zonal congress of the Peopless Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna, following a series of power outage.
I hear the outage occurred three times, lasting for nine minutes.
Yar'Adua was said to be very embarassed by the outages and has vowed that the time to confront the darkness in the country is now.
Perhaps the embrassment will make him finally declare the much touted state of emergency on the sector. For us, it is a daily occurence that we are gradually getting used to it.
I hv vowed never to part of those contributing to the noise pollution even though I suffer lack of sleep every nite due to the noise.
