HAPPY INDEPENDENCE; NIGERIA @ 52

Today, is the only today in an entire year where I can say, “The only thing we have achieved as a Nation is FREEDOM from British administration(the reason why I spell honor as honour). Nothing else. Zero. Naught. Nada.”

There is poverty, there are bad roads, no infrastructure, internet service is expensive and slow, there are so many problems.

My dear government is this what you envisioned for your people? The rich get richer and the poor, poorer? A nation where getting a VISA to another country is a prayer point in church that we have to fast and pray for? I urge you to take a step towards change. Let the youths, the leaders of tomorrow, be the change we seek. Please, your people are suffering.

So yeah, we do have some good things which I would love to share about my country.

We have beautiful women, e.g, moi

bride dancing

Idanre Hills. Yes, we have something like this.

We have beaches and not all children are suffering from kwashiorkor.

kainji dam, don’t know why I put it here but it was always an important part of social studies in Primary school.

Yes, we have carnivals.

This is the Abuja Carnival


City of Kano

Most popular street food is suya. Its beef roasted and seasoned with Nigerian spices.

Suya or Barbequed beef.

made with melon seeds and vegetables, its called Egusi soup. Delicious!

Nigerians are mostly non-vegetarians.

Being Nigerian is not an easy task. There is a stereotype people create in their head when you say “I’m Nigerian”. Nevertheless, I’m Proudly Nigerian, and believe me the good ones are still out there.

God Bless our great Nation.
