With the incessant killings, banditry, bokoharam and herdsmen troubles, corruption, call for cessation by some aggrieved regions, kidnapping, hunger, animosity and insecurity. It is sane for most people to want to give up on Nigeria. As a matter of fact, this write up is as a result of a conversation I had with a teenager. One of the leaders of tomorrow. With the happenings around and the negative things he has seen and heard about Nigeria; he believes nothing good can come out of the country. So, we typed on one of the search engines “what best is Nigeria known for” and here is the answer we got
Nigeria is the most populous black nation on Earth. It is home to the second largest film industry on the globe whilst also being the fashion, technological and creative hub in Africa. Nigerians are known for their vibrant and friendly energy expressed through diverse creative expressions. And whether we like it or not, Nigeria is still the richest country in Africa with0- a GDP of over 446.543 billion dollars
The uniqueness of Nigeria can never be overemphasized, in tourism, when you visit places like, ibeno beach in Akwa Ibom, Obudu mountain resort in Cross river, Ngwo Pine, Awhum waterfalls, Ogbunike Cave all in Enugu State, the giant footprint of ukhuse oke in Edo, Gashaki gumpti national park in Taraba State, Osun Oshogbo groove in Osun state, Sukur cultural land scape in Madageli Adamawa State, Idanre hills in Ondo state. The list is endless.
In fact, in every of the states in Nigeria lies unique deposition of both human and natural resources, in sports, education, culture, abilities, agriculture, and so on Nigeria is always outstanding, so I went on talking and trying to make him see reason why Nigeria will be great again. In the end he asked
“if Nigeria has this much potential, then why are we sinking at a very fast rate”?
