Adieu Dr. Olusegun Agagu
Apart from being remembered as the first minister of aviation and also that of power and steel during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s return to power in 1999, or the fact that he was Governor of Ondo state from 29 May 2003 until February 2009, when a court pronouncement voided his re-election as governor on account of electoral irregularities. Many almost forget that he was also deputy governor, and lecturer at the University of Ibadan.

Is Lagos handling its expansion wisely, iq4news sought to find answers in this report.
Lagos Dealing With Population Surge
By Prince Dickson
By 2030, 60 percent of the world's population will live in cities (Port Harcourt, Abuja, Lagos and most of the state capitals). That could mean great things for economic growth, but that is if these cities handle their expansion wisely.
Leaders in developing nations must cope with urbanization on an unprecedented scale, stretched budgets and aging infrastructure are just a few constraints that they wrestle against.
I live in Lagos, and that says so many things. Now huge vehicular traffic top the lists of unsavoury every day events, that is not mentioning the always ever present blackout, or rightly put: zero power.
This is not to say that Lagos or Nigeria is not a great place to live in, (you can make lots of money and have so much fun) the people are funny, friendly, industrous and one of the best people to hang out with in the world - don’t think about the internet scammers, a minority becoming our collective ulcer.
It is now 2010. I hope it will be a year that fulfills all our dreams. I’m sorry to serve this piece so early in the year when people are thinking about ‘serious’ things like starting the year on a speedy note, just like Hussein Bolt. I hope my writing will help. I want to talk about two things that should form a serious part of your agenda this year – making good money and having a good relationship. I will write about making good money some other time, I promise. But, for this piece, I will talk about how important a good, loving relationship is.
