Freedom Of Information. Ha,Ha,Ha.

He who laughs last, laughs best. I sincerely believe this will be the case in passing the freedom of information bill in Nigeria. Afterall, over a million Nigerians believe it will be a right step in truly fighting the prevalent corruption in the country.
A common strategy employed by Nigerian leaders is to 'lay low' until the clamour is past. Are we to allow them do this to the 'extremely important' bill?
'This too shall pass' should apply to corrupt leadership in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, certainly not to the Freedom of Information Bill.
How can this bill be brought to the forefront of matters considered urgent? Even as Nigerians and the world await a speedy resolution to the menace of 'animals in human skin' who terrorise citizens with horsewhips, 'accidental discharge', stripping women on the roads e.t.c ( Uzoma Okere)
