FACTS ABOUT NIGERIA YOU MAY NEVER HAVE KNOWN

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 😤

Enjoy!
