    Do people lose their senses when they occupy some position of authority? Imagine the NCC asking millions of Nigerians to obtain NIN within two weeks starting December 16 and ending December 30, a period of long public holidays and also yuletide. No wonder a friend said that the sole objective of governance in Nigeria is mainly to make life very tedious for the masses. For this goof,l say SHAME on to the members of the NCC who gave the unresonable altimatum and kudos to the National Assembly.

    ….. Nigerians to register for NIN
    ….. Nigerians to register SIM cards afresh
    ….. Nigerians to register for National Drivers’ licence with NIN, all before the end of the year. Who knows what’s next. This govt likes to see Nigerians always in endless queues. Is it an offence to be a Nigerian?
