Yesterday, the CBN announced the floating of the naira. This is good news and bad news. How? Well, if you look closely at the beginning of the movie, when Batman lost both his parents to a thief, you might have been tempted to think the movie would be good.
Instead, like the first paragraph you just read, it makes absolutely no sense. If you are one of those that listened in Economics class, kindly explain what the floating of the naira means in the comments section. Maybe Walter will even give you a column of your own – ‘The Naira Floats Like a Butterfly and Stings Like a Bee’.
Meanwhile, Samuel Eto’o and his wife got married two days ago on the 14th. Not married-married; they have been married since 2007. They simply had the white wedding yesterday, after 9 years, or is it 10? Their children are all grown up.
So my question is this: Why must there be a white wedding, either now or in two hundred years?
Who made the rules?
And why oh why is it so important to the woman to wear that white wedding gown?
My fellow women, I need your opinion here.
If the legalities are done in court, why do we still insist on a white wedding? Is the ring not enough? Are the children not enough? The wedding certificate (or whatever it is you get) at the Marriage Registry is not enough? Why does it seem like our whole life hangs on that white gown we see in our dreams, and standing in the church?
I am interested in knowing.
Yes, the article is done. What else do you want? Answer my questions first. Then I will explain what the floating naira means for all of us.
(HINT: It is not a good thing.)
