Proper post on my thoughts to follow. However, my condolences go out to the injured and the dead. Asokoro General Hospital is seeking blood donations according Nze Sylva.
What I can say at this time, is that I struggled to find the positives about this day, Nigeria's 50th independence anniversary. Thankfully, I was able to look at individuals, and not the state and it's representatives (government), as a basis to have hope for the future. My opinion on that is yet to change. But, in the aftermath of the bomb blasts, my disatisfaction with the government continues to mount. And from what I see of public discussions, most, if not all goodwill MEND might have had has evaporated.
