The Nigeria Of My Dreams | #Imagine #IWANTANIGERIAWHERE

It’s October 1st today… Yaaay!!
And did I forget to mention?! THERE’S ELECTRICITY! (NEPA, PHCH…. which ever you choose to call it)
I woke up for the first time on independence day today and there’s LIGHT!! It’s either this “Privatisation” thingy’s a sign of good thing to come or #NaWash!
I like the fact that, pretending isn’t in our nature… Why give us light cos its our independence?  
Imagine 24 hour electricity in every city or village, without the interruption of generators bleating like stray goats in the marketplace.

Imagine you telling your children PHCN stories and everyone laughing about it, like they were fairy tales or Alice in Wonderland.

Imagine us having nuclear power plants in Ajaokuta.
Imagine those american kids on YouTube really meant it when they sang ‘I want to be a Nigerian so freaking bad’ cos Bruno Mars now lives in Yola.

Imagine those bomb blasts were actually scenes from a Nollywood set.
Imagine Nollywood movies winning Oscars every other year.
Imagine Super Eagles winning the World Cup.
Imagine Nigeria finishing among the top five on the Olympics medals table.

Imagine food baskets all over the country enough to feed 200 million people yet have enough left for export.

Imagine the UN asking Third World countries to learn from the rapid ‘development of the West; Only this time, the ‘West’ Actually means South-West Nigeria. A global model for socio-economic development.

Imagine the rise of groundnut pyramids Like sphinx in the Northern deserts.

Imagine those cattle On a thousand Northern hills & valleys, Whose dairy products are sold in Europe.

Imagine ‘almajiri’ is an ancient word.
Imagine Harvard in Jigawa And MIT in Kebbi.

Imagine that the best resorts In Africa are in the Niger Delta

Imagine that those children could Actually swim in clean waters flowing from the creeks.

Imagine Hawaii in Akwa Ibom or Bayelsa
Imagine Disneyland in Warri.
Imagine those architectural masterpieces.
Imagine a boat cruise in the Niger Delta.
Imagine those exotic landscapes in the South.
Imagine the lush vegetation and fertile lands, Beautiful landscapes And techies in West Africa’s first Silicon Valley in the East.

Imagine an original car model called Utomibile. Maybe Aba-car or Zik-ari, Designed & manufactured in Aba But competing with others made in Europe & Asia.

Imagine Japanese CEOs driving made-in-Nigeria cars.
Imagine one Naira to a dollar.
Imagine nine functional refineries.
Imagine the first Nigerian astronaut Taking off from Abuja Space Agency.

Imagine the Nigerian police truly being your friends.
Imagine a well-equipped police force Without the everyday drama of corruption.

Imagine thirty seven world class international airports.
Imagine Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez Travelling to Nigeria on Nigeria Airways.
Yes, ‘Nigeria’ Airways.

Imagine Sasha & Malia Obama Begging for a Nigerian vacation.

Imagine the beauty of traffic at night. And the joy of inter-state road trips.

Imagine a country bonded by its diverse cultures, Cemented with the right values system.

Imagine a country where the Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba, Isoko, Itsekiri, Nupe and all Nigerians See themselves as Nigerian first before their tribe.

Imagine Tuwo sinkafa, amala,andbanga, On the regular menu list in Waldorf Astoria.

Imagine that the 350 ethnic groups Understand their differences.

Imagine that the people, Rather than fight, Harness her diversity into strength.

Imagine a truly indivisible country.
Imagine how great Nigeria would be If every tribe & group unite as one.

Imagine 180 million beautiful people In a beautiful country, One nation under God, Living together, For the love of country & humanity.

Imagine a country with focused, Selfless leaders. And strong institutions.

Imagine a country where Boko Haram, Kidnapping, Niger Delta militancy et al Would be forgotten tales by moonlight When we sit under the shades of history, Sipping the palmwine of true nationhood.

Imagine a country where the rule of law prevails.
Imagine a country where there is dignity in labour.
Imagine a country where justice Is a meal both the rich & poor can afford.

Imagine your imagination running wild. Like truly seeing Eko Atlantic City On Victoria Island Beach,

Imagine Nigeria’s own Manhattan.
Imagine Ajegunle, Mushin and Agege With VGC architecture, infrastructure and design.

Imagine you living the Nigerian dream.
Imagine ‘that’ is possible. Forget Nigeria today.

Imagine the new Nigeria tomorrow.
Imagine ‘Naija’.
Imagine that beautiful country Called NIGERIA.

But don’t stop there.
Imagine if we all can pray collectively to God for our lost glories…

Together, we can make it better!
God bless Nigeria
