Lockdown resumes!


Hope everyone is having a good weekend! Thank you all for your kind words and concern. Here's an update on what's going on here in Nigeria: the union suspended the strike for the weekend, so the people can restock their homes in preparation for an indefinite strike if the government does not meet their demands. The union and the government held two different negotiation meetings, the second one ended this morning without a compromise which means the strike resumes on Monday, this could be worse because there's been a threat that the refineries would shut down which means production of oil would seize in the country and there would be no electricity. So right now the country is at a standstill.
There are no words to describe how I feel right now. But I did have a good weekend with friends and family.
