Nigeria is rich and blessed with so many human and mineral resources such as cocoa, cotton and petroleum. Also a Nigerian, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is the Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
Nigeria is the most populated black country in the world.
Nigeria’s Independence in 1960, brought the end of British colonial rule. She became a republic in 1963.
For where I was born is not were I’m from, and where I’m from is not my home. So when the tribes gather I often wonder who will I fight when they are both my brother. Nobody asked when we played as children: are you a Muslim or Christian? We shared the space that nobody claimed but now you ask me to choose a side.
As students, nobody asked if North and South could share a desk. East and West could study together but now you tell me that am a stranger. More so, Nigeria had a lot of leaders such as, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Ahmadu Bello and many others who fought for the togetherness and oneness of the people from colonial rule.
However, greed, selfishness, tribalism, and religious differences ate deep into this dream that Our founding leaders has in mind for us as a nation. The utopia they tried to build was soon shattered as every tribe wanted their own to be the head.
Furthermore, corruption has become so regular in our Nigeria today. What drove our past leaders was a determination to build a stronger, independent, united Nigeria. However that is no longer the case. Today, our leaders are driven by greed, desires to enrich themselves up to their third and fourth generation without consideration of the common Nigerians at the receiving end of all their choices. Breeding sad Citizens who are tired of these wrong choices made by leaders.
A lack of trust for leadership makes citizens take matters into their hands, living like rules do not exist because they know there would be no consequences for their actions.
My Nigeria of 2030 should be one where rules are made and kept, where leaders are held accountable for their own actions and choices as it affects the citizens of Nigeria.
My Nigeria of 2030, should be one where check and balances exist not just in the constitution but in practice.
My Nigeira of 2030, should be one where corrupt leaders are held accountable and not just allowed to walk freely.
Children should have real access to quality education not just on televisions and radio but in does rural communities where the cameras cannot go. Where elections are held transparently free and fair, where citizens are no longer afraid to work and walk around their communities, where social vices such as kidnapping, rape, domestic violence, child abuse and so on are reduced to the lowest as possible.
A Nigeria I can be proud to call my own because we can compete with nations of the world in technology and science.
Where the need to travel to get proper medical care become a thing of the past.
…My Nigeria Will Be Free From Terrorist Attacks In 2030

T here are certain ways in which I envision Nigeria. I am a proud Nigerian, and I am not sorry to say it, I can also stand anywhere, at any time and beat my chest for Nigeria.
A country known as the “Giants of Africa” a very supreme country indeed. However, everything good has some lapses or faults. “Nothing is perfect”.
I have a lot of visions and aspirations for my great Nigeria which I want to point out.
I would love Nigeria to be corruption free, to have good leaders, and a more improved and stable economy. A country which is corrupt will not move forward.
Nigeria really needs to tackle the electricity problems we face on a daily basis especially those living in the rural areas. Sometimes it looks like the AEDC is being rude, by constantly taking out power.
I would also like the food and agricultural sector to improve in the coming years, I mean I wish that food will be stored and preserved at various times of the year so that there will not be scarcity.
My great Nigeria, I wish that you will be free from terrorist attacks in the future because Nigeria is really facing hard times, I mean there are high levels of insecurity everywhere within the country.
I also wish that in future the educational sector will be checked because the educational sector is now very corrupt and messed up.
I have one more wish, I wish that people’s voice will be heard their votes will count and my Nigeria will soar high because the sky is her starting point.
