Yesterday [July 30] was NIGERIA DAY at the Africa Olympic Village, Hyde Park, it was an event designed to showcase Nigeria and the achievements of its people. The village was put together by Association of National Olympic Committee of Africa (ANOCA).

But thank goodness for organizations like First Bank Plc for their support and Western MoneyGram, UK”…I paid through my nose to buy this stand, but if I do not profit at the end of the day, I would be glad that Nigeria image would at least been put in right perspective during the games”.

“When I heard about the Nigeria Stand and story of non-governmental participation/sponsorship, I felt obliged to support Goke by giving these paintings freely for display”.  Chinwe asked, “What about the Nigeria Art Gallery?” Aren’t they (Federal Ministry of Culture & Tourism) supposed to be here?

ALASHOCK’S BLOG ON VACATION…MY APOLOGIES FOR NOT POSTING | MY EXPLANATION | MY WAKANOW STORY…

I am so sorry, I owe you guys some explanations…LOL. A couple of days now I have not been able to blog as usual; Reason? It’s the time of the year I normally go on annual holiday…

Again, apologies I didn’t give an advance notice….

Interestingly the holiday clashes with the on-going London 2012 Olympics…Though I have no single Olympic game ticket because the sole Olympic Ticketing agent in Nigeria (i.e. Wakanow) was not willing to sell just tickets alone to Nigerians. According to them, “we only sell Olympic tickets with Return Flight tickets and/or hotel accommodation”.
