During our summer camp, we taught our children the power of imagination. We asked them to draw after exercising their imagination. One of them drew this!
You know what is special about this? In the eyes of a child, everything is beautiful and perfect. Our nation Nigeria is going through its toughest season; nothing is working well, poor education system, epileptic power supply, bad roads and infrastructure, poor governance and all.
This particular child is also being deprived of her basic rights; she has no father and her mother couldn’t afford to raise her alone, so she stays with another woman, who also, because the government has refused to pay her salary for over six months, cannot afford her secondary school education.
Yet, she declared that Nigeria is a great nation with good people. We are humbled by her optimism!
How do you see Nigeria?
