Rooting for Obama
There is a large following of the American presidential politics here in Lagos. Some gentlemen created the Obama Nigeria Initiative at the Lagos Parliament to sensitise people about the candidate's ideals. I interviewed the legislator behind the project, Hon. Adelabu Onibiyo, sometime ago and was surprised by his unflinching support for Obama even though he and his people will not be able to vote during the elections. Very funny.
A lot of motorists in Lagos like to flaunt their support for Obama through car stickers.
