HAPPY INDEPENDENCE NIGERIA
There is no place like home…
Nigeria is a great nation full of rich cultural heritage, wonderful history, amazing natural resources, exquisite dishes, and talents in arts & music. The country is blessed with cultural diversity yet in all that we have a sense of belongingness that wherever you meet a Nigerian in the world, you instantly recognize the person as a brother or a sister from the nation. We are built differently.
Vibes, fun, and entertainment are the top tier in Nigeria, the country has produced some of the most talented artists, comedians, actors and actresses, athletes, and footballers who have broken records left and right, year after year.
When it comes to working, Nigerians have one of the best work ethics in the world. It has been shown that people from Nigeria are hardworking, dedicated to working and go the extra mile to help others with their work. In fact, in a 2018 report, Nigeria got 71.0% in the list of the hardest and most skilled immigrant groups in the US.
There are a lot of wonderful things about this blessed country, however, the reality of what is happening today will make many people question being in this country. Corruption, poverty, illiteracy, civil unrest, and terrorism has been ravaging the country and making it rather difficult to enjoy being here.
Many people that can afford it have left the country to find greener pastures elsewhere because life here has become too difficult. Skilled workers like doctors, nurses, engineers, developers, and artists have left the country in hordes in the last few years.
We have hit a low in this country, every day looks gloomy and terrifying. The people are really struggling. The level of poverty in the country has increased drastically due to an increase in the cost of living.
Things look bad right now, but isn’t this the best time to bounce back from this low? We have hit a realization point where we are more aware of our civil rights and the bare minimum we should do to make the future of this great nation better. The bad history should not be allowed to repeat itself but rather it should be learned from.
It is time to restore the country’s former glory where we can be able to beat our chest and rightly claim the title “the giant of Africa”. Let us make a better nation for our children and the children that will come after them. Let us become the “heroes past” they will be proud of.
On this day as Nigeria is celebrating its 62nd independence anniversary, we urge you to look within yourself at how you can contribute to the betterment of this nation. No contribution is too small. Imagine the little contributions are small trees planted today, if other people plant small trees like that, we would have a forest tomorrow.
The upcoming election is another great way to give your contribution to this nation by choosing the right leaders who will steer us in the right direction towards the growth and development of this blessed country.
In conclusion, Nigeria is blessed immensely with richness and goodness. It has been a tough few years and it is about time we make a difference, it’s about time we make this country great again. Nigeria needs you and me.
Happy Independence Nigeria,
God bless us all.
