donationTHE recent warning by the Lagos State Government to politicians, philanthropists and other affluent members of society to stop donating motorcycles and tricycles to people, as supposed means of poverty alleviation and employment is really timely and commendable. It has appropriately challenged a disgraceful, even insulting practice that has gradually become the norm in most communities across the country. Commercial motorcycle and tricycle riders are on the increase because a mindset has over time been built that it is a lucrative trade thus making people jettison quest for real skills and making governments too lazy in dealing appropriately with challenges of transportation on one hand and unemployment on the other.

If George Etomi had not become such a successful legal practitioner, one thing I know he would have done extremely well and indeed on a global scale is to play squash rackets.

Many years back in Surulere, precisely over two and a half decades, it was a marvel to watch this graceful sportsman play this game, (whose evolution it is rumoured is located in some not too palatable origins), with the precision, competitiveness and expertise, that humbled his opponents, and dare I say frequent victims in the finest traditions of sportsmanship of honour in victory and gracefulness in defeat that I have never seen on our land.
