Is there Any Hope for Nigeria?

There is hope for Nigeria.

I have seen many Nigerian youths who are conquering great frontiers on their social media profiles alone. That gives me hope.

Many of these Nigerian youths seem to be quite passionate, empathetic and solution-driven to our plight. That gives me hope.

Some Nigerian youths have actually taken it upon themselves to actually discuss what matters and ask the right questions. That gives me hope!

I have discussed with many Nigerians in the diaspora who want to import change (overseas lifestyle experiences) into the country. That gives me hope.

I see many Nigerian entrepreneurs venturing into businesses not just for profit but because they want to impact lives and improve our standard of living. That gives me hope.

I see the excellent academic performances of Nigerians, both home and abroad. That gives me hope.

I see many Nigerians questioning their religious ideals. That gives me hope.

The fact that we have only given the bare minimum for the welfare of Nigeria(ns) because of corruption and poor quality leaders, and knowing that if we just try by even just 30%, we’d achieve incredible feats. That gives me hope.

Unlike African countries like Zimbabwe, Burundi, Angola etc, Nigeria does not operate a dictatorship government. Anyone can freely promote change by opposing our under-performing government. That gives me hope!

There’s hope for Nigeria when we all finally remember and start honouring our own “national” pledge:

“I pledge to Nigeria my country, to be faithful, loyal and honest. To serve Nigeria will all my strength, to defend her unity, uphold her honour and glory, so help me God.”

This is a vow for HOPE, for all Nigerians which sadly, most of us have forgotten.

I see this question on Quora by Obinna OnwuchekwaThat in itself gives me hope.

There is TRULY hope for Nigeria.

Thank you for keeping this hope alive!
