Naija no dey carry last oo. You don’t believe me right? I didn’t believe too before I saw the ‘Common Sense’ video by Ben Murray Bruce. Now I am overwhelmed with pride and a sense of patriotism for our great country because of the facts I discovered. For example:
- Did you know that of the top 10 richest black people on earth half of them are Nigerians?
- Did you know that Nelson Mandela once lived in Nigeria?
- Did you know the walls of the ancient Benin kingdom were greater than the Great Wall of China?
- Nigerians are also the most educated immigrant community in the USA. I bet you didn’t know all that.
It appears after all, that not everything about the country is flawed, we have so much to be proud of in our past and present, and I’m very optimistic about the future of this country.
- Nigeria is a great country and we need to be proud of our heritage, our accent, our food, our language.
- We need to show the world that Nigeria is not a country of scammers or a country of ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ people.
- We also need to have more faith in our leaders (that’s when their leading us right of course) that with time things will get better.
