Nigeria I hail thee, the most populous and ever increasing black nation! We do not have to wake up every morning and ask what can be done. You have provided us with what to do. You have placed responsibilities and expectation placed before every individual.
Despite the Ebola Virus Epidemic, Lassa fever, internal unrests, foreign criticism and the ever constant economy and academic recessions, amongst other ills, we survived. We have suffered more than we deserved, and more ‘sinned against than we have ever sinned.’ But here we are, working and hoping for a better tomorrow with the works of our hands.
Many nations round the world have not experienced days and weeks without electricity, but we have, from weeks to months without going nuts. They might never understand the reason why we hustle the way we do, but we do!
Although there are black clouds and expectations of a mighty storm coming, I would rather cling to my nation and celebrate her – Nigeria; the reason for the hustle. We stand apart from others. We are simply unique!
I perceive that in a not too distant future, you will be the ‘Most Desirable Nation’ all around the world.
Despite all your flaws and shortcomings, I cling to you dearly and await your awakening.
NigeriA My Nigeria, I hail thee.
