Nigerians Celebrate 50th Independence Anniversary
Hurray! Nigeria as a nation is 50years old today 😉 I wasn’t around when Nigeria got her independent from Great Britain. However, I learn from my parents that it was such a joyful moment. All the various tribes that makes up Nigeria rolled out their drums and celebrated the occasion in colorful styles.
Well, fifty years after, some around me feel there is no reason to celebrate, but I beg to differ. I believe in what a song writer said that we should count our blessings and name them one by one, it will indeed surprise us what the Lord has done. We must not only take account of the problems and crisis that have almost destroyed us as a nation, we should at least appreciate the mercies of God that we have enjoyed time and time again.
I know that Nigeria as a nation has a lorry load of challenges and some of it are quite great. However, the singular fact that the Nation is still existing despite all the damage done to her socially, politically and economically by the black sheep among us is enough for me to thank God.
It is only here that I can claim to be a citizen without paper. This is my home and the home of my children. In every other places we go, we are still strangers irrespective of how well we behave. So I am still proudly Nigerian. I am grateful to God Almighty who has sustained the fragile peace existing in this nation and has not allow us to experience another civil war. Nigerian Entrepreneurs need to thank God because it is only when there is peace that enterprises thrives. A warring nation is no place to do business.
Nigeria Shall Be Great Again!
While other are expecting the doom of Nigeria, I choose to join those praying for the success of this nation. I believe that Nigeria will become great again. I believe that the broken walls of relationship between the various tribes will be rebuilt. We will co-exist in unity under God fearing leaders who are ready to serve.
I believe that the Lord God Almighty will smile on us and give us trustworthy leader who are ready to rebuild the ruins of our social infrastructures. Nigeria shall be great again. If you believe Nigeria shall be great again, join me and my family as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Nigeria’s independence. Cheers!
