A 23-year-old Michael Taiwo Akinkunmi had thrown his hat in the ring as he offered to design the nation's flag. His design entry in 1959 became what is known today as the Nigerian flag. 62 years down the lane, the man is not living the best of life many would have thought, owing to the fact that he contributed to one of Nigeria's symbol and by extension, a means of identification. The building exterior looked unkempt with its faded colours, while the other image - the restroom - which was shared was in a pitiable state.
