#MyCountryMyHome - Why I Am Proudly Nigerian!


In a time when many Nigerians will rather be Americans, British or a citizen of one developed nation or the other due to the country's appalling underdeveloped state which is largely as result of lack of visionary leadership, some of us are still flying her flag as proud Nigerians who look forward to a brighter and great Nigeria. 

I am optimistic that Nigeria will surmount her socio economy, security and political challenges. I see light at the end of the tunnel for Nigeria and below are why I am proudly Nigerian :

My Voter’s Card Registration – The Drama That Ensued, The Five Things I Observed.


Mountains are surmountable and limits can be broken were lines I prepped myself with on this third trial trip to get my voter’s card registration done. I have had two failed trials due to mammoth crowd at the registration center. The earliest I could arrive at the center was 6:15am, by this time usually the needed number of people to be attended to by INEC officials for the day would have been complete as they will usually have carry over names from previous day(s). 

So on Monday the 5th of February, 2018 I got up early as possible and arrived the registration center by 6:15am only to meet a crowd of about 20 people in a heated argument. They were been told by the School’s security men which was the registration venue to go back to their homes or offices because they were no longer writing names as the list of names required by INEC officials for that day was complete. They were only about 20 people on ground and it was alleged that 50 people had written down their names. Definitely there were ghost names, people that had probably bribed the security guys to write their names in their absence, which was done at the expense of people who were on ground. The Nigeria factor will always play out in any and every process, I meditated to myself.
