The Superbowl Outage, Christiane Amanpour and Nigeria

I'm so tickled! *teeheehee, hahahahaha, hohohoho, hardy har har, giggles, chuckles galore*

Okay, maybe I shouldn't be laughing at Nigeria's electricity woes but I just saw the viral video of Christiane Amanpour's segment comparing the power outage during the Superbowl and Nigeria. The tweets she mentioned were funny to me. But you know what? I don't completely agree with the people interviewed in the video. In Lagos (Ajah, at least), there's been an improvement in power supply, a minute improvement sure, but it's still an improvement. Even last Saturday in our house in Lekki, for a few hours there was power.

HOWEVER, that is not to say that the power issue in Nigeria is anything to smile about. So I'll agree that the government is lying. It's just sad. Nigeria has potential but... too many issues to mention *sighs in exasperation*

Maybe things would have changed in my grandchildren's generation?

P.S. - Can this be considered as Nigerian news? And I saw the video on Linda Ikeji's blog. I'm really terrible at trying to stay current with happenings in Nigeria. What's the best news outlet to get daily, unbiased, concise reports on the Nigerian landscape?
