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 in Africa.

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.

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.

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.

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 .   .
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.
