Shortly after wrapping up the inspection of guards at his swearing in ceremony this morning at the Eagle Square in Abuja, President Buhari performed his second role as President when he gave his inauguration speech.

When he said, “I belong to everybody & I belong to nobody”, I knew for sure his speech was gearing up to be epic and epic it was!The new president’s speech covered all issues ranging from corruption to Boko Haram to the current fuel crisis and even social media! His speech gave me national pride and hope that maybe, just maybe there are better days ahead for our country.

Sai Baba’s speech also served some shade to the outgoing GEJ administration and a few others! LOL

When I read the report about why National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC) shut down popular Lagos restaurant Chocolat Royal, my skin began to crawl. I am not a regular patron of the restaurant but I have been there three times this year…once I had a burger and fries, the other time I had a salad and then some donuts. When I had the salad I got an upset stomach but I just put it down to having a sensitive stomach.

But reading the damning report which reveals why NAFDAC shut down the Victoria Island outlet last week Tuesday – May 19th one can only wonder why an establishment built on such a reputable brand would stoop so low to use food products that expired 11 years ago! Yes 11 years!
