NA has become very fluid lately, you don't know if Defense HQ is a movie stage where creative imagination run wild and wide.
But, on this one,I am tempted to believe them only that it is difficult to believe them.

Let them lie all they want,BH will die down one day and it will be a critical event.
This child's play will end too.

Politics / Change We Can See: Kudos To Gov Kwankwaso Of Kano State by knotty(m): 6:20pm On Aug 23, 2013
i am at the departure lounge of MAKIA, Kano: and i am brooding over the high and low points of my trip to this ancient city.

I have spent a huge chunk of my life growing in this city; I had my primary school here. But it is no longer a primary school. It is now a girl’s secondary school. Its gate also made the news for being the epicenter of a bomb blast that took lives in drove.

Comparing the glorious halcyon days to the needless bloodbaths makes one to want to wash ones past. But, it is hard for anyone to wash away their past you may only wish it away. This is the price one pays for change in life.

The changes that had starred me in the face but which i had been oblivious of, is now visibly audible. You can literally hear Kano speak. The story of Kano of today is a story that personifies change. A visible change, almost a singsong of Obama,s campaign slogan: Change We Can See.

All the change we are seeing started with the second coming of Gov Musa Kwankwaso as Governor. It seemed he is on a redemption mission. A mission which will forever imprint his name indelibly in the hearts and minds of Kano citizens for years to come. I do not intend delving into the specifics lest I be misconstrued as a paid praise singer. Rather, I am commenting on infra-structural developments that had until now been seen as impossible to happen in Kano but are springing with reckless abandon. None leaves you awe struck more that the prodigiously ambitious flyover that seeks to link the heart of Kano to its tributary arteries in one fell swoop. Without doubt, the project is a brilliant idea; the execution is a masterpiece is urban rebirth.

As for the dead street of Kano suddenly lit at night, I can only marvel at the short time it took all this to happen. While the haters continued to throw bombs, Kwankwaso continued working. The streets that his predecessor had left in eternal ruin, he finished. New ones, he built. Interlocking tiles pave the walkways of the ancient for the first time in 50 years.

Suddenly, a rudderless place like Kano now has direction. A leader they can queue behind in obedience is here at last. Anyone who is capable of outlawing Achaba business (OKADA) in a boisterous and restive city like Kano without any major rehash is indeed a true Leader.

double up

vb (adverb)
1. to bend or cause to bend in two he doubled up with the pain
2. (intr) to share a room or bed designed for one person, family, etc.

Sorry to veer from Word to phrasal verb today. But, i stumbled on the correct usage of this phrasal verb by accident.
i had grown up knowing `double up` to mean hurry up.
My teachers go it wrong in the past.

`After the race, Bode doubled up in excruciating pains.``

Just wish michelin is this cheap in PH. They gave me the tires R18/265/60 for 46k each.

I wonder o.
Where will you get Michelin tire for 10k
Abeg, budget 60each for a good tire.
Other than that you will have to settle for Korea.
Whatever you do, do not touch Used Tires.

Politics / Re: Please Is Kano Among The Boko Haram Infested States In Nigeria? by knotty(m): 8:52am On Jun 23, 2013
Katangora: Kano is very safe,no single case of violence & insurgency for the last 20 yrs.. The whites you are bringing in can even walk freely around the streets of SABON GARI at 2am
Hey, hold it there.

@ OP be circumspect when in unfamiliar territory.
Kano is save but the best safety gadget is made of common sense.
Use it well.
Avoid the densely populated CITY vicinity, if you can.
Get good tour guide, perhaps a Kano based NLer.
Nightlife is still good. Enjoy your stay in the ancient walled city of Tumbi Giwa

an act or an instance of disloyalty

disloyalty, faithlessness, falseness, falsity, inconstancy, perfidiousness, infidelity, unfaithfulness

Perfidy is easy to be confused with Theft. Please, do not mix the 2 words.
