FACTS ABOUT NIGERIA YOU MAY NEVER HAVE KNOWN

19 Nov

You may already know that Nigeria is
the
largest black nation in the world and
the
most populous nation i n Africa.
You may already know that Nigeria has
great dependency on crude oil, plus all
the other opinions of David Cameron.
*Here are 20 unpopular facts about
Nigeria.*
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 patency was
awarded in 2015. This means Nigeria
has the patency to the world’s
fastest computer: a Black 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
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 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 with
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 et al.
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 less than 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.
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.
Be proud of our GREEN HERITAGE.
Be enthusiastic of our FUTURE
GREATNESS.
