  • Facts about Nigeria you may not know


    You may already know that Nigeria is the
    largest black nation in the world and the
    most populous nation in 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%.

    8. The World’s fastest supercomputer was
    designed by a world renowned inventor

  • 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.

    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.

    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.
