As We Celebrate Nigeria at 63…

let's reflect on these possibilities if petroleum were no more

As we celebrate Nigeria at 63, let’s reflect on these possibilities if petroleum were no more.

Did you know?

Nigeria has over 50 trillion naira annual potential of untapped resources apart from petroleum. Nigeria’s other natural resources include natural gas, tin, iron ore, uranium, coal, limestone, niobium, lead, zinc, and arable land.

Did you know that Osun State is the largest producer of cassava and has huge gold deposits?

Did you know that Enugu State is rich in coal and cashew?

Did you know that the Benue, Plateau, and Taraba troughs are the richest resource troughs of the nation from agriculture to zinc, barite, gold, and other mineral resources?
Did you know that Ogun State has one of the best limestone belts in the world?

Did you know that hides and skin from Kano, Kaduna and other northern States of Nigeria are highly sought-after in the world?
Did you know that Ogbomoso has the best cashew nuts and mangos in Africa?

Have you heard of Calabar street carnival, the greatest tourist attraction in Africa, or the Akwa Ibom annual event that draws the world to Nigeria yearly and is documented in the Guinness Book of Records?

Did you know that Cocoa from Ondo, Ekiti, Edo, and other States in Nigeria has the annual potential of replacing the current petroleum wealth?

Did you know that in Africa, Nigeria has the largest human resources and market?
Did you know that Nigerians are the most educated immigrant group in America?

This nation built Nollywood into the third-largest film industry in the world with no bank credit.

The country built the largest music industry in Africa with no major record label.
Nigeria prides herself on growing diversified information technology, a match with global standards.

Did you know there are millions of Nigerian professionals living in Nigeria and in the Diaspora, who have contributed to making the world a better place?

If we can do these, we can do anything. Let us believe in Nigeria again.

Indonesia was once like Nigeria depending on oil alone, but today they have diversified their economy to farming and trade. There is nothing wrong with learning a good thing.
Nigeria had been a fertile ground for farming before the emergence of oil flow stations in the Niger Delta region.

When we return to large-scale farming and grow in trade, support made-in-Nigeria products, foreign media will not have the guts to say Nigeria is the poverty capital of the world because we are not. There are so much amazing things happening in Nigeria that the world is yet to know. Our awesome business spirit and our amazing mouth-watering cuisine.

Nigeria is the residence of some of Africa’s wealthiest men. We are industrious people. We work hard and we work smart. The reason for xenophobia was because they claimed, #Nigerians were taking all the jobs.

Recently, Nigerian workers have ranked second in the world after Mexico in the global most hardworking workers with an average of 2,124 hours per worker annually.

According to a report published by the World of Statistics on Tuesday, Nigeria automatically emerged as the most hardworking country in Africa.

We are pathfinders, pacesetters, impact-makers, record-breakers, and change agents.
