Blood Drive

Our country has experienced another senseless and mindless devastation wrecked on us by people who call themselves Nigerians.

I'm not here to help them promote the idiocy they think is a cause because that will be lending some unwarranted credence to aforesaid idiocy.

I'm here on a nation building business.

To everyone's surprise and horror, the National Hospital ran out of blood and needles. To the eternal credit of Nigerians, the young people most especially, there was a considerable turnout of people willing to donate their blood but there were no tools to make this happen.

Blood is never enough. There is a constant need for blood in hospitals. It is not our civic duty to donate blood, but it is THE decent thing to do for fellow human beings and it is really the least you can do. Please take a few minutes out of your time to give blood.
It is evident that the government is as confounded as you and I so there is definitely no help coming from that end. We need to galvanise and be proactive. Being the change you want to see is no longer just a saying. We must now live it. Let's start by doing this extremely decent thing and just showing that we care.
From about 11 am tomorrow, I will be at the National Hospital Abuja with a supply of syringes, cotton wools and plaster. If you are within the Abuja metropolis, please come through and donate blood. It will only take a few minutes of your time and it will definitely save a life someday. We do not pray to be in this situation. But when things like this happen we must show those bent on destroying this nation that we shall overcome one way or the other.

I am a proud Nigerian and as the Britons came out to clean their streets and do what was needful to restore order, we must do our own clean up and whatever is needful to save lives. See you guys tomorrow.

P:S: eat something before you come to donate. You can visit this website: to learn about the side effects of donating blood so you can make an informed decision. They are not that serious tho. Also, this site: has some useful facts and information about blood and donating generally. Thank you.
