On the Occasion of Nigeria’s Centenary Celebrations
Wednesday, 26th February, 2014
1. I extend warm greetings and felicitations to all Nigerians as we celebrate our nation’s centenary; a significant milestone in our journey to Nationhood.
2. One hundred years ago, on the 1st of January 1914, the British Colonial authorities amalgamated the Southern and Northern Protectorates, giving birth to the single geo-political entity called Nigeria which has become our home, our hope, and our heritage.
3. I have often expressed the conviction that our amalgamation was not a mistake. While our union may have been inspired by considerations external to our people; I have no doubt that we are destined by God Almighty to live together as one big nation, united in diversity.
4. I consider myself specially privileged to lead our country into its second century of existence. And as I speak with you today, I feel the full weight of our hundred-year history. But what I feel most is not frustration, it is not disillusionment. What I feel is great pride and great hope for a country that is bound to overcome the transient pains of the moment and eventually take its rightful place among the greatest nations on earth.

Good day people!
As a follow-up to my interview with Ahmad Mukoshy in 2009, I had another conversation with him recently, bothering on the latest development in his company – Gigalayer.
In 2009, you told us that timely insufficient internet connection was a big challenge. Have you been able to solve this challenge?
Yes, internet is now readily available and even on high-speed with HSDPA+ in town and likes of it across the nation. The telecoms have delivered 3G network everywhere, however the next challenge now is affordability of it. The cost is just something else!
Recently, you changed your company name and brand from AimTech to GigaLayer? Can you explain why you take this big move?
Well there was a lot of back-and-forth before the change was effected. But the good thing is that Aimtech still remains and we basically changed our domain and branding. It is still the same company and same people except bigger and better.
The main cause of the change could be easy to remember and access without hassles. Then the feasibility of the name to grow world-wide. Prior to that, I tried all I could to get us aimtech.com, which was abortive, so I concluded on a switch.
I also consulted a number of my mentors prior to the switch, almost all of them were OK with GigaLayer and also the fact that the business name is only a small slice in the success pie, so we have to make it sell, that’s what matters the most.
Right now, we are continuously growing and improving our offering.

The thing about age is, it is catching. It’s like a hysterical jester lying in wait for the fool.
I want to tell you about Mrs Okoro. Before l turned nine, school was a vaguely irritating distraction from the pursuit of happiness in play and adventure. Every school day, I’d wear my red checked dress and burgundy beret uniform and passively submit to school. l was not a rebellious child. I was a bored child who daydreamed through classes until lunch when the school served asaro and chicken with bananas and ground nuts as snacks. That was until l got to Mrs Okoro’s class.
Mrs Okoro made letters become words, words which became stories, stories which became my life. I loved her dearly, perhaps it was transference as l’d recently lost my mother but at nine, l started going to school because she was there. One day walking out the gates after school, l saw Mrs Okoro getting into a bus ahead of me so l ran across the road to get into the same bus. I didn’t bother checking for traffic. The next thing l remember is thinking heaven looked rather like Akoka road. I had been hit by a car and was staring up at the concerned faces of Mrs Okoro and others. The driver was distraught; he was a student at Unilag and in the moment before pain cut through my adrenalin, l remember being happy l had been hit by a grand university student not some infernal danfo bus driver.
He took me to the university health centre where the nurses gave me a large cone of ice cream to comfort me before treating me and putting me in the big university bus home. My heart was swollen with pride as the shiny big bus drove down our dirt street in Bariga. Not a dime was exchanged, no one called my father at work, there were no mobile phones and we had no phone at home. There was no need; the system took care of me. It was Nigeria 1980.
Recently on my way out of Nigeria, the Murtala Mohammed airport was thrown into chaos, people were sweating and swearing, passengers stranded as all electronic equipment had stopped working. The place stank because there was no water to clean the toilets. I watched the white airline crew walk by with barely contained derision as they gingerly sidestepped the mess. The problem wasn’t that there was no electricity at the airport, that’s normal; it was that someone had not supplied the diesel to run one of the generators. Read more

The governor made the call in his goodwill message issued in Ibadan on Monday on the occasion of the 53rd independence anniversary of Nigeria.
The governor called on Nigerians to support the efforts of the leadership at the federal, state and local government levels at eliminating the challenges facing them as a people.

President Goodluck Jonathan with Gov. Amosun at the flag off of the reconstruction of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY, PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, GCFR, AT THE FLAG OFF, FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION AND EXPANSION WORKS ON THE LAGOS-IBADAN DUAL CARRIAGEWAY SECTIONS I AND II ON FRIDAY 5TH JULY, 2013 AT SHAGAMU INTERCHANGE.
1. We are gathered here today, to flag-off the reconstruction and expansion of sections I and II of the Lagos-Ibadan dual carriageway, one of the busiest and most important roads in our Nation.
2. This event fulfils my promise to accelerate these projects after the termination of the concession agreement between the Federal Government and Bi-Courtney for the reconstruction of the road. It also reflects our commitment as an administration to practically and relentlessly meet the yearnings of our people and also to improve our national transport infrastructure.
3. The Lagos-Ibadan expressway, constructed, between 1974 – 1978, is among the earliest dual carriageways in our Country. The road is an important economic artery that connects our Nation’s economic nerve centre: sea ports; airports and other vital businesses to many of the states of our federation. At the regional level, the road constitutes a section of the strategic Trans Saharan Highway, which links Lagos on the Atlantic Ocean to Algiers on the Mediterranean Sea.
4. This strategic national infrastructure is therefore of great socio-economic importance, not only to Nigeria, but also to the people of Africa. It is for this reason and noting that a comprehensive renovation and reconstruction was long overdue that the Federal Government in 2009, acting in good faith, entered into a concession agreement under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme to deliver on the road and alleviate the hardships on millions of road users.
