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.

I find the support for Obama in the African nations fascinating. I just hope they aren't disappointed after he wins. I think there is an expectations that he will do more for them than he actually will.

people are so jobless. Instead of them to focus on their own people and the problems that we have, they are supporting someone whose nation will run whether or not he is elected. Shio.

BTW:I am pro Obama...
