Chronicle of My Media Advocacy in 2011

Welcome to 2012. In keeping faith with my fans, here is the highlight of my media advocacy in 2011. In the out-gone year, I got busier, minding how my country Nigeria is governed. Among issues I commented on were Elections, Politics, Economy, Violence, Sports, Women, Health, Agriculture, Unemployment, Legislature, Judiciary, Education, Population and other sundry national issues. On the whole 57 of my articles were published 76 times across 12 national newspapers and two newsletters. I was on radio six times and on television only once in 2011.
