What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by jimmysho(m): 5:18pm On Sep 30, 2009
After Forty Nine {9} years of independence, my dear country seems not to have gotten it right as expected both within and outside  her shore. I decided to put this piece hoping to gettingt the most patrotic views of well meaning nigerians that visit this site. here are my thought:

   "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
   our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
  We ask ourselves ' who are we to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented  fabulous, developed, matured and become
 the Jerusalem and Mecca of all nations?
                                                 [/color]  [color=#006600]

Actually, who are we not to be?
                We{Nigerians} are born to make manifest
                 the glory of God that is within us.
                 and as we let our own light shine,
                we unconsciously give other nations in Africa
                         the permission to do the same.

Way too late to fear, every bad that could ever happen has happened already grin
Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by Nobody: 5:24pm On Sep 30, 2009
my deepest fear is the number of half literates being produced by that country, many of who are here on NL.

They're also known as educated illiterates.

Fuc.k Nigeria. . Gave up donkey years ago!
Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by Kobojunkie: 5:46pm On Sep 30, 2009
My biggest fear is the average Nigerian on the streets will remain blinded to the fact that he was a part of the decay. Most will probably never figure out that there hands are just as dirty in all this, and never take responsibility for the part played in creating, and nurturing the Nigerian problem.
Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by jimmysho(m): 5:53pm On Sep 30, 2009
pardon me, u might sound like one using question to answer question.

what caught my attention was when wrote BY THAT COUNTRY.

Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by citizenY(m): 5:54pm On Sep 30, 2009
PATHOLOGICAL PESSIMISTS AND BIGOTS AND SEPARATISTS WHO ENJOY CITIZENSHIP
AND STILL CONTINUE TO STAB NIGERIA IN THE BACK .

THANK GOD THEY KNOW THEMSELVES AND KNOW THEIR EFFORTS WILL AMOUNT TO NOTHING.
I CALL THEM THE CYBER WARRIORS.

Nigeria has long since surpassed all my fears.

I am now in fightback mode. Time to sieze back our birthright by every means necessary.

Fair enough if you believe Nigeria will get there. .
I dont give a rotten rat ass, if they get there. . .
But come, arnt you tired of that word "Will Get There One Day"
Nigerians have been saying this since independence and 49 years down the road, Nigeria is 7 planets and the moon apart from "Get There" grin

In my young life, i have heard of that phrase more than a trillion times. . . .
Get it fixed? Dude you may have to wait till thy kingdom come! grin

Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by ChinenyeN(m): 7:59pm On Sep 30, 2009
My deepest fear regarding Nigeria is that Nigeria will in fact remain as is, and neither split nor decentralize power.
Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by Epiphany(m): 8:09pm On Sep 30, 2009
@ Poster: You are asking everyone about their deepest fears about Nigeria and castigating them for their what they have written! My take on your 'tone' is that you are seeking only positive comments rather than accomodating the many 'realistic' comments that many have spewed forth.

Like many commentators have indeed posited, my own fear is that many of us in our lifetime will not see Nigeria emerge from the present mess she is in. We may see some progress - in the far future, but that progress will not be weighty enough to satisfy our deepest yearnings
Re: What Is Your Deepest Fear About Nigeria? by jimmysho(m): 10:37am On Oct 02, 2009
FROM THE POSTS UPSTAIRS, I REALIZED SOME OF US DO NOT REALISE THAT THE REV. KING JNR DREAM WAS LESS THAN 50YRS BEFORE IT WAS ACTUALISED. SO, IF SUCH FEAT COULD BE ACHIEVED BY CHANGING THE TIDES OF WHITE-WHITE LEADERSHIP TO WHITE-BLACK THEN I SEE RAY OF LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
