The fourth edition of ComeToNigeria magazine 2020 is now out. Choosing Nigeria as your next destination is vital to both the indigenes and the foreigners alike. With unique cultural diversity and a range of natural attractions, a combination of our ecosystem, beautiful arts and world iconic sites have created some stunning backdrops in the country called Nigeria. I like the land and the people because we have everything but must first join hands to make the country better. So, we are waiting for you.
Late Michael Jackson in one of his songs titled, ‘Man in the Mirror’ said: “I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any more exact. If you wanna make the world a better place. Take a look at yourself and then make a change.”
Discipline is a virtue we all must imbibe to push the nation to an enviable height among the comity of nations.
Plato was right, ‘Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly while bad people will find a way around the laws.’ We must end SARS now. ComeToNigeria wants an end to Police brutality. We love our country and want more people to keep coming.
The emergence of the dreaded COVID-19
The emergence of the dreaded COVID-19, also known as (Coronavirus disease) is an eye-opener for both developed and developing nations. At the same time, countries are particularly admonished to always prepare to face unknown upheavals like the present pandemic. Pandemics, epidemics and other catastrophes are part of natural phenomena over which human beings might have little or no control. As Elder Major (Rtd) Dipo Adegbite said, ‘The keywords are “be prepared”.
The legitimate question is” why is it that Nigeria cannot be a producer of trial drugs and vaccines to stop the pandemic? The giant of Africa must wake up from her slumber and not shirk its leadership responsibilities. Nigeria must be at the forefront of looking for a cure. And not just depending on what the western world are working on. Developing countries appreciated efforts of Madagascar and Cuba when the disease broke out. This country, Nigeria, should also work for genuine cooperation between traditional and orthodox health-care givers to solve the problem.
Kudos, therefore to Nigeria for the efforts put in to stop the spread of COVID-19 just like they did for EBOLA most importantly at a time we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of our independence. And Nigeria’s most significant challenge remains its diversity. In this edition that the pandemic totally disrupted, and we refused to give up, we are presenting the Nigeria exportable commodities reinforcing the needs for zero oil plan for the country. And the pandemic has undoubtedly not stopped us writing about Aba, the industrial nerve corner of Abia State. We hope you will enjoy the work and tell someone about it so that we can get the help needed to continue with the project. To subscribe, visit here.
