Today is 1st of October!!!
Nigeria is 55 today!!!
But I am indifferent.
I don’t know how to write all those poetry and what not for Nigeria.
IT IS THE BEST NIGERIAN MOVIE EVER!
I used #1000 (ONE GOOD THOUSAND NAIRA) to see this movie at the cinema. Ehnn, I’m stressing the ONE THOUSAND NAIRA because it is a very big deal for an ordinary NIGERIAN GIRL like me. But I don’t regret it.
Anyways, this is what I want for Nigeria :
My prayer. Because the way these people embezzle money is becoming unbecoming. ALL OF THEM. ALL. NO EXEMPTION.
Again, I don’t know how to do all those poetic writing. Especially when it comes to something that I’m indifferent about.
But I know how to pray and so I will pray for you.
I pray that you receive Independence in your personal life.
The late Prof. Chinua Achebe published his book THERE WAS A COUNTRY before passing into glory few years ago. He wrote abundantly about Nigeria’s independence and freedom : In the words of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, he writes, Nigeria was given her freedom “on a platter of gold.” We should have known that freedom should be won, not given on a plate. Like the head of John the Baptist, this gift to Nigeria proved most unlucky.
(Don’t forget to see OCTOBER 1 If you haven’t…)
GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!
