60 Years: Are We Really For Nigeria? by Abiodunspectre(m): 5:02pm On Oct 08
This past week buzzed with activities and stories to commemorate the country’s Independence Day anniversary. While some of these were quite celebratory, some seemed more despondent and pained.

The 60th anniversary has brought with it some nostalgic desires for the glory days and a celebration of victory milestones, as well as an awareness that Nigeria’s present is a far cry from its much-anticipated great future.

Some Nigerians took to Twitter to air grievances, complaining about the poor state of the country, generally. Others, although not very positive in their remarks, made it clear that rising up to take responsibility, especially when the leaders will not, rests with the true Nigerian

Nigeria is the sum of all its people’s actions and inactions. If we blame Nigeria for failing, we are blaming ourselves and showing to the world that we have failed. Ordinarily, we place the faults with the leaders, forgetting that the people make the leadership because each one is selected from within. We forget that the real power resides with the citizens who vote the leaders into power and, by that choice, we decide to continue to allow the misconducts to happen.

What do we contribute to the bigger picture of the Nigerian dream?

Everything!

We must decide to commit to building our nation, knowing that we are fully for what becomes.

Nigeria remains our home. We are and will remain Nigerians no matter where we live. Why not make a conscious decision to take a stand for growth and development into the great nation that we are. Let’s stand against the choices that make us less than we are. Let’s side with Nigeria.

Truth is things are deteriorating quickly in the country, who knows, maybe the only reason Nigeria hasn't fallen apart totally is because of the few people who still very much believe and stand with the country.

I don't want to sound like a pessimist or a cynic, but if you think there's a SOLUTION to NIGERIA's PROBLEM, then you are part of the PROBLEM... This country is a taste less mash up, like an amateurish Dj Mixtape... Look at what all your so called nationalists(i call them Tribalists) represents , Y'all can't function together, y'all shouldn't have been together in the first place and it irks me for what reason you chose to remain together... Unity in Diversity? Together at 60? Come on that's what some one stunningly delirious would say.... But no Hatred, Care and Respect all

I think the ideal question we should be asking each other
Is if the current leadership in Nigeria is steering Nigeria in the right direction?

Nigerians will Look for Loopholes in a System and take Advantage of it for their selfish interest. And when that system crumbles, they will start Asking on how it crumbles. Funny Hypocrites.

Always blaming Everybody but themselves for their Failures.

Nigeria will Start working when Nigerians want it to.

Good People
Great Nation
God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Nigeria is a country built under a weak foundation.

Religion, Tribalism and Illiteracy are the 3 major problems stalling our growth as a nation because they affect our sense of judgement especially when making national/collective decisions.

The country cannot get better because we cannot make progressive decision without

Religion, Tribalism , Illiteracy affecting the decision makers

A father that pile up debts for his children and grandchildren to pay in the future, is a wicked and a very irresponsible father.
That's the legacy Nigeria @ 60 will bequeath on her future generation.

IF YOU READ THIS TO THE END I PROMISE YOU THIS WILL BE THE BEST THING YOUWILL READ TBIS YEAR.


There was a time I had no skill at all. I couldn't get the basic things I needed as a person.
I started finding it uncomfortable asking my parents for pocket money every single time, I needed to have my own money and stop relying on my parents.
I was striving to be independent at all cost, So one day I saw an advert on Facebook on a skill acquisition training just like this one too. It included web development, graphics design, mini importation and a lot of other skills.
So I decided to go for Graphic design and 3D Animation. The training fee then was #8000.
I knew this is the only investment I needed at that point to change my situation. I remembered having 3k in my account then. The money was meant for something, So I withdrew everything and I begged my parents to help me with 4k.
I was the last person to pay because the registration almost ended but I had to plead. I would have missed it if I was still contemplating whether to join them or not.
I'm grateful I didn't think twice before I acted.
To cut the long story short. I brought in 186k within 3 months of starting.
For this cause, I vowed to mentor as many as I can by teaching Highly Demanded Digital Skills!
This is why I created an IMMERSIVE ONLINE TRAINING that took me a lot of time to organize.
This training will go in details to help you and show you how to build a business online with several digital skills:

Web Design
Graphics design
3D Animation
Facebook & Instagram Marketing.
Video Editing & Compressing
Google Drive
3D Book Cover
Text Scanner
Paystack Usage
Cyber Security & lots more

In this training, I am going to teach you EVERYTHING I know about building and growing a business online with each of these skills.
Once you join me, you will have all the tools and knowledge at your disposal to become a full-blown Digital Expert
If you are afraid of hard-work, or don't believe anything works online, PLEASE DON'T WASTE MY TIME.
Every slot for this Online workshop is very valuable and I want to guide each and everyone that gets on board.
If you got to this point and you have made up your mind to move from where you are to where you want to be, then I congratulate you.
