Nigeria is my country and I should be proud of her even though she’s not proud of herself; she has no fear because her mineral resources and agro products comfort her and she then camouflages to comfort me by preparing a table for me, called “NYSC” in which I protect and labour for her whereby I’m given peanuts to distract me for the time being, after which I’m thrown out and forgotten like a castrated he-goat in the middle of a burning bush called “my country” and that is when I realise they anointed my head with confusion and blindness which filled my cup to the brim.
Surely, I refuse to follow her structured plans for me and be crippled by her mentality all the days of my life and even if I shall dwell in her house forever, I will just love and enjoy the company of her citizens while creating my own happiness; so help me God.
Happy Independence “Nigerians“
