I Identify.

I identify with Terra Kulture, a successful culture and tourism organization that leverages on what others have pushed to the background: Nigerian culture.

I identify with Dangote Industries, who have done the seemingly impossible from the ‘dark continent’ and have just refused to be complacent regardless of their achievements.

I identify with Wole Soyinka, who speaks and keeps on speaking because as MLKJ once said: ‘Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.’

I identify with Covenant University. A departure from the unproductive norm. An example of what we all can be if we just change our core values, from wrong to right.

I identify with the BBOG. For once, in modern Nigeria, we see role models of persistence and perseverance. Hang in there guys.

I identify with the hopeful Nigerian, who doesn’t just hope but works to see that hope manifest.
Who do you identify with?

Happy 55th birthday Naija.

      Oh! Nigeria is filled with so much more! I’m doing excellently well, elouise. Although, I should post more often. 😁

    Hello Demilade,

    I enjoyed reading your depthful post. 🙂

    I too identify with the hopeful Nigerian, I admire the resilience of the typical Nigerian, the determination to hustle and survive in spite of the odds. I hope for a better Nigeria, I believe..

      Sorry my reply is this late. Thank you! For enjoying the post. 🙂
      Resilience is the word, definitely.
