Hello from this part of the globe. Undermining the champs, which was supposed to be a single episode, turned out to unveil a lot of mysteries in diverse parts. So many things have been disregarded and disparaged, which of course bringing to light will take forever and I will use my forever to bring them to light and of course to change how it’s been viewed.
This happens to be the final epistle from the envelope “Undermining the champs” and this will unveil some interesting facts. Well, actually this time around, a place is our emphasis. It’s not the woman this time, neither is it our self but it is something that has us in it. Many refer to it as a place, or an environment, or domicile, but I refer to it as ME.
I want to keep it short this time around, so I will just hit the nail on the head. This place some call home, others call an environment, others call it great, others blessed, while others call it accursed, is none other than our great, blessed, mighty, yet undermined country NIGERIA. Yes! Nigeria. Were you surprised that others call it great and blessed? It’s sad that you refer to it as an accursed.
Well, here is the truth, you are not a Nigerian alone, YOU ARE NIGERIA. Yes! You are Nigeria. LOL, can you chill and loosen that weird facade, please. Just like your gender, your country is your identity and thereby, IT IS YOU. Being certified as a citizen of another country won’t change the fact you’re a Nigerian. So, rather than running away from our identity, it will be a nice decision to ACCEPT IT, THINK OF IT FLAWS, and then, REFURBISH IT. Wait! I didn’t say accept it’s flaws, neither did I say vilify it.
Nigeria is a great land with great potentials( you and me). It’s disheartening to watch our beautiful country lose it’s glory, to the insanity of it’s people. When will things change? When will our opinion of our great home change? Sometimes, I sit and wonder if a day will come when no one will smash the title ‘corrupt’ on our country. We call it bad and corrupt and thereby work towards it being bad. How sad! Everyone wants to make the money and leave Nigeria. Just so you know, that country you’re fleeing to, had it’s citizens worked towards making it the country you love and admire and want to live in. So why not make yours the same?
How about we change things? How about we create a domicile for our generations to call a comfort zone? How about we start believing in Nigeria? Here’s a tip: Observe it’s flaws. Pin them down. Select a flaw, and then erect it. It takes a gradual process though, but that’s how to rewrite history.
Can’t wait to see you rule a better Nigeria. Remember, YOU ARE NIGERIA and NIGERIA IS YOU.
