The strike kicks in...

Fuel prices went up a couple of weeks ago - from around 43 naira to 50 naira per litre. A general strike began this week. Lagos has been pretty much shut down. I think many people in Abuja are not working today as well. There is scant information about what is happening. One thing is for sure: the strike won't last for more than two or three days. There are too many people here who live from hand to mouth for it to go on longer.

So I'm sitting in the office in the Ministry and decide to get off me arse and start my blog. This diary will record some thoughts and experiences living in West Africa, focussing on how to make Nigeria a better place.
