He was articulate and was a force in the debate. But thats not the issue.
Besides, the chairman of the resource company, no other participant was from the West; yet they were all in suits.
My issue is what are our dignitaries trying to prove? There is an image that the Agbada portrays; it fails to exhibit professionalism, humility and self control. It depict a superfluous culture with no self imposed limits.The word is dress as you would like to be addressed! I have seen, on TV, a senator been interviewed and praise singers were doing their thing in the location!
I think stronger national statements can be made by designing policies that work!
