Trouble for Obama Mama


The lady who fronted the Africans for Obama campaign here in Lagos is going through some tough time at the moment. Prof. Ndi Okereke-Onyiuke and her group raised almost $1 million recently at a dinner to support Obama. She has since come under investigation of the financial graft body here as to the intent and purposes of the funds raised. Many opinion writers have crucified her already and she is definitely going through some tough time.

An opposition party has even asked her to resign her position as head of the Nigeria Stock Exchange where she's been for a long time.

I have been away from the country for a while and that's why I have not been blogging. But I'm back.

Glad to see that you are back, and congratulations the Nigeria on the Silver medal in the Olympic soccer! The Argentinean side was a pretty good one this year, so it isn’t too much of a shame to be runner up to them.

It was unfortunate we didn't win the gold but we're thankful for the silver. Saturday morning here in Lagos was very quiet after the defeat. Argentina are really strong.
