In another news, It’s only 96 hours until the end of 2023. A lot of amazing things happened in the previous year. According to a well-known maxim, charity begins at home. Let me begin this chronicle with a heartfelt congratulations to Punch, which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. I’m currently reading “Our PUNCH Years,” an edited book by veteran journalist Lekan Otufodunrin. It was based on the testimony of 38 former newspaper employees. The book provided an excellent insight into the perplexing issues of newspaper printing in Nigeria. I’ve been writing for The PUNCH for 28 years. On Friday, November 3, 1995, I published my first essay in this newspaper, “Saving our Universities.” With this medium, I became a columnist.
