  1. I wish we were committed to health and education as we are to football. Two state of the art stadia on the one hand and none on the other hand.

    Footballers are nationally celebrated for every win, more frequently at collective than individual. There’s yet to be a dinner at State House for an academic achievement or health break thru. A win in health and education means saved life and poverty reduction. A win on the field of play on the other hand translate into short-lived excitement.
