In spite of all the odds, I still love Nigeria…
I still feel the rush in my veins when I think of her future, her potentials, the possibilities…
I still feel tears well up when I consider the unfruitful years of our heroes’ labours, the high level of resources yet untapped, as our citizens wallow in poverty and obscurity.
I will not forget quickly those courageous lives lost to the fight for democracy and fundamental human rights.
Yet I believe in her future. I perceive a wind of change blowing across the nation.
I feel her strength, latent in every Nigerian. I see the bar rising, a new standard of reckoning, a new lens through which we are beginning to view ourselves and the ever-increasing globalized society.
Maybe the labours of our heroes past are really not in vain, after all.
Nigeria, the so-called sleeping giant, is finally waking up; about to take her proper place among nations.
I see her future, our future. The land is green, the harvest is plenty and we are the labourers.
As Nigeria marks her 52nd year of independence, her citizens must resolve more seriously to make every action count for the realization of a green future, to turn all our negatives into positives.
I recognise that the overall perception of Nigeria is a collection of results of all our individual actions, so I look to protect and project the ideal image of Nigeria – a land of intelligent, resilient, and the happiest people in the world.
Nigeria – home of the best entrepreneurs the world is yet to see; with incredibly high untapped human capital and resource potentials – the upcoming world economic power.
This is what we want, this is what I want. We can make it happen, and that is exactly what we are going to do.
I am Nigeria, Nigeria is me. Whatever I do affects her and who she is affects me.
Wake up Nigeria! The World awaits your manifestation!
