|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by Damsal(f): 6:41pm On Jul 04, 2006|
The nigerian dream is to be rich, to have everything life has to offer without working to hard to get it. It's quite a selfish and self centered one.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by SvS(f): 8:51pm On Jul 04, 2006|
i agree with u damsal
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by retro(f): 3:08pm On Jul 05, 2006|

|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by Eurphoria(f): 8:27pm On Jul 05, 2006|
Gosh it's sad to think of this, because we know what the dream is(money,house,cars,good lifestyle)very shallow but very much needed for people to have a good quality of life.
So maybe I'll say it like this. my ideal Nigeria, it would be that "you can have a good and uninterrupted education, have a conducive enough economy to be able to get a good job or if you are free spirited,be able to gain help to start up a business to further add to the development of the nation , hence(good and vibrant social infrastructures). Finally be able to be what you want to be without unnecessary hindrances.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by jaguda(m): 12:32pm On Jul 10, 2006|
i agree with Eurphoria, dat is the Nigeria we dream of , but sadly, project Nigeria is Dead! Nigerians do not see themselves as a People Under God i.e. One Nigeria. the average Nigerian places ME before WE. its so sad.
We need to change this orientation!
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by naijadiva2(f): 4:26pm On Jul 10, 2006|
the nigerian dream is to get recognized by the world because nigeria has a lot to offer.

We've Heard Of The American Dream. What's The Nigerian Dream?
yes o! if am no misled, we 're compelled every other time to see how even the ants in US are pitching in to make the american dream a reality but i don rack brain tire to see if even a hint of the Nigerian dream was communicated to the me at any level of my education (formal or otherwise) and sadly enough the answer is no.
So in case u know it, come out and let's see what the Nigerian dream is or at least what it should be like.

To work nine-to-five, have enough money to buy brand new cars not second hand cars, to get home within 20-30 minutes of leaving the office, to have constant light, and water, good roads, good affordable education for our children, Wait, that dream must be to work for an oil company!!
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by youngies(m): 3:47pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Hmmmmm, 9aija Dream!
There is no collective dream. the Niger Delta is dreaming to conrol their resources and be the next president of nigeria, the north is dreaming for the return of political power to them to continue their squandering of the economy which they are contributing little or nothing, the south east is confused and in deep slumber - no dream, the south west is awake now, knows that their dream is over - TTA.
There is no meeting point for a collective national dream
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by spikedcylinder: 4:26pm On Jul 17, 2006|

One nation under God, indivisible and strong and prosperous
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by my2cents(m): 5:29pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Having lived in the US for 13 years, I have this to say: The American dream is just that, a dream. Life, irrespective of where you find yourself in the world (be it the rolling hills or Jos or the high mountains of Nepal), is what you make of it. America only seems better cos of more opportunities. However, many pple have made the ulimate sacrifice of going there (selling houses and land, marrying citizens, forfeiting their high-paying careers, etc) only to end up disappointed. I remember reading somewhere that yrly, $30billion worth of degrees leave their respective countries and go to the states where they don't get utilized . If you doubt what I am saying, y r there so many Nigerians, say, who are phD holders and are driving taxi?
Don't get me wrong, there are those of us making it in the US. However, I would strongly caution against the notion of a "dream", cos those usually don't come true. Speaking for myself, I live a comfortable life in the states (I pay my taxes and bills, pursue a few side-jobs and have a little left over to save and send home ) and I thank God for that, but my dream is yet to be realized.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by raldsfield(m): 5:48pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Before you have a dream you have to first sleep.
Nigeria has no dream/dreams, just leaving the life is what I will call it.
I think the dream now is who will save Nigeria and find us right track to move on(Pat Utomi).
For now their is no dream.
No dream for light (the only person that had a dream said we should wait till 2056"God forbid"), no dream of good health, quality education, employment,job creation, no road, no food for the common man, no water to drink.
The Nigerian dream for now should be providing the basic things of life.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by Mystique(f): 6:48pm On Jul 17, 2006|
And what makes you think Pat Utomi is the one that will save Nigeria??
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by tianshie(m): 7:12pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Let me see, The Nigerian dream abi?
The Nigerian dream is to get into politics,get into a position of influence then embezzle money.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by OldGlory1(m): 7:44pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Like i said in another thread, you are a victim of your environment. Your Hero is Mike Adenuga and your dream is to embezzle money. You are some character.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by Gomer: 7:48pm On Jul 17, 2006|
Arise, O compatriots,
Nigeria's call obey
To serve our fatherland
With love and strength and fait[/b]h
The labor of our heroes past
Shall never be in vain
[b]To serve with heart and might
One nation bound in freedom,
Peace and unity.
Oh God of creation,
Direct our noble cause
Guide our leaders right
Help our youths the truth to know
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true
Great lofty heights attain
To build a nation where peace
And justice shall reign.
I pledge to Nigeria my country
To be faithful, loyal and honest
To serve Nigeria with all my strength
To defend her unity and uphold her honor and glory
So help me God.
That is the Nigerian Dream
Its been staring at you since you were born!

|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by Ka: 8:07pm On Jul 17, 2006|
There is nothing like 'The Nigerian Dream'.
What we have instead are 150 million Nigerian dreams, each as different as the dreamer.
|Re: What Is The Nigerian Dream? by LiquidMind(m): 8:21pm On Jul 17, 2006|
The Nigerian dream is to have a portion of the National Cake at least in a life time
