Why am I here in Nigeria?

I am out in Abuja helping the country director for the BBC World Service Trust Nigeria (Jaldeep Katwala - pictured here) develop some legacy publications to support their immensely successful and popular radio soap opera: Story Story.

This is proving to be not just a fascinating journey for me into an entirely unknown world - West Africa - but an inspiration as well.

The work that the BBC World Service Trust is accomplishing out here in HIV awareness building, and other good works is staggering. Lives are being changed and quality of life improved. It is proving to be a joy working with a wonderful group of people. All under the steady hand of Jaldeep here in Abuja and Karen Merkel back in London HQ.
