I have been a little lazy lately to write but I was spurred into writing due to the events that are happening in my country.
For those who don’t know, Nigeria has been battling a menace called ‘boko haram’ and lately they seem to be getting out of control. Last year when people put on their finest apparel and went to church on Christmas day, they decided to plant a bomb in a church and kill some innocent people.
We were still trying to get over that incident when they decided to kill lots of people in kano, bauchi and plant bombs in bayelsa.
I was beginning to get really pissed when the latest news coming from their camp was that they want to make Nigeria an Islamic nation. Some people are saying that a certain pastor has prophesied that Nigeria would break up into 5 countries and that did it for me! I just had to say what was on my mind.
I am a Nigerian, a fabulous Nigerian for that matter! God did not cause me to be born in another country. My children would say they are Nigerians even if I end up marrying someone from another country. I refuse to believe any sect or persons that say MY COUNTRY would break up.
Anybody that tries to stand in the way of the progress of this country would be consumed by fire. I have a passport that says Nigerian not South western Nigeria. I have the right and freedom to marry anybody from any part of Nigerian and not need a passport to go and see friends in other parts of my country.
People that think they can wake up one morning and decide that they want this country to be an Islamic one are comedians, jokers of the highest order! I would not be threatened in my own country. The land upon which I stand and walk upon shall not be divided! I know that it is possible that the man of God saw the prophecy that Nigeria would break up but I trust that God can change his mind.
So let it be heard that I SAY I AM A NIGERIAN, I HAVE A NIGERIAN PASSPORT, I AM A PHARMACIST IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA AND REFUSE TO CLAIM ANY OTHER COUNTRY! And that is that about all that talk of breaking up.
I gotta go. I need to rest for tomorrow. Work has been really crazy lately.
Proudly Nigerian Petite Diva.
