How True Can This Be? by Yemea1: 11:32pm On Jun 27, 2018
A Russian saw me in my office and said where are
you from , i said am from the greatest country in
the world.He looked at me with a very strange look
and said let me guess u are from Nigeria , i said
yes. Out of curiosity he said considering whats
happening in your country now why would you say
shes the best in the world and i asked him to sit
down and let me tell him what he and most people
dont not know about Great Nigeria and i told him
these.......
1. Are you aware that all over the world Nigerians
are setting the pace and becoming the standard by
which others measure themselves? Do you know??
2. In the US, Nigerians are the most educated
immigrant community. Type it into Google and
you’ll see it. Not one of the most educated, the
most educated.
3. 60% of Nigerians in the US have college
degrees. This is far above the American national
average of 30%.
4. Nigerians in US are one of the highest earners,
typically
earning 25% more than the median US income of
$53k.
5. In Ivy League schools in Europe and America,
Nigerians routinely outperform their peers from
other nations.
6. A Nigerian family, The Imafidon family, have
officially been named the smartest family in the
UK.
7. The designer of the famous car, Chevrolet Volt,
Jelani Aliyu, is a super
talented Nigerian from Sokoto State.
8. The World’s fastest supercomputer was
designed by a world renowned inventor and
scientist, Philip Emeagwali, a full-blown Nigerian
whose pat ency was awarded in 2015. This means
Nigeria has the pat ency to the world’s fastest
computer: a Nigerian.
9. The wealthiest Black man and woman on earth
are
Nigerians, Aliko Dangote and Mrs. Folorunsho
Alakija. Both have no trace of criminal record of
any kind.
10. South Africa couldn’t have ended apartheid &
achieved Black rule if not for
the leadership role Nigeria played.
11. Of the 3 South African Presidents who ruled
after apartheid, two of them once
lived in Nigeria under asylum. Both Nelson
Mandela (60s) and Thabo Mbeki (70s) lived in
Nigeria before becoming President
of South Africa.
We gave financial support, human support,
boycotted an Olympics and our politicians,
musicians and activists campaigned relentlessly.
12. Nigeria spent over $3 Billion and lost hundreds
of soldiers to end the wars in both Liberia and
Sierra
Leone which the world ignored because they have
no oil.
13. When there was a coup in São Tomé and
Príncipe in 2003, Nigeria restored the
elected President back to power.
14. Before there were street lights in European
cities, ancient Benin kingdom
had street lights fueled by palm oil.
15. 500 years ago, Benin casted metal alloys to
create magnificent art including the world famous
Queen Ida Mask.
16. Amina was a warrior queen who ruled Zaria
Emirate in Kaduna state,
Northwestern Nigeria 400 years ago in 1610.
Google and see what she means to
Africa.
17. We gave monetary gifts to Ireland during our
oil boom and
built a statue for France free of charge. We are not
poor blacks. Nigeria is rich and don’t be lied to.
18. The first television station in Africa was NTA
Ibadan (1960) long before
Ireland has their RTE station.........
Wherever you look in this great country, Nigeria,
heroes abound both now and in our recent and
ancient past. If all you do is listen to mainstream
Western media, you’ll not get the full & true picture
of your Nigerian heritage.
Do not listen to any leader who says Nigerians are
criminals, no matter who he
is, or his height and position.
We’re not a nation of scammers, drugs &
corruption, but a people with a verifiable track
record of greatness........
Here is what CNN, BBC, Aljezeera and western
media will not tell you about Nigerians:
19. On the 7th of May, 2016 at Howard University
in Washington D.C history was
made. Out of 96 graduating Doctor of Pharmacy
candidates, 43 of them were
Nigerians and out of 27 awards given, 16 went to
Nigerians. The entire world still envies our
uniqueness as a NATION, living together despite
our ethnic diversity. One single country with over
400 languages. They will only tell you how
Nigerians are scammers and cheats, how Nigerians
are into drugs overseas. If you don’t blow your
trumpet, no one will blow it for you.
VIVA NAIJA!!!
20. There are over 180,000,000 Nigerians world
over and only about 250,000 of this figure have
traceable criminal records. This is about 0.14% of
our entire national population in the last 20 years:
nothing close to 1%. Shame on global
media.
21. Nigeria took care of Ebola with no help from
other countries. US have send delegates to Nigeria
to know how we did it with our own resources.
Listen Nigeria, don't let anybody woo you into
believing that you are a criminal just because you
are a Nigerian.
Nigerians are NOT criminals. You are NOT a
criminal.
You are topnotch; second to none around the
world.
I am proud am created a Nigerian, thank you God.
Be proud of Nigeria wherever you go. Take out
your Passport with pride. He couldnt talk and just
walked away. Am proud to be a Nigerian and be
from that country.... God bless Federal Republic Of
Great Nigeria.
Be proud of your country like I do.
Please Continue Sharing This....Until all Nigerians
see it!
