NIGERIA OUR ONLY HOME.
It is my duty to celebrate her when she is down and when she is up.
It’s my duty to celebrate her resilience and products which is us as citizens.
We have been denied our rights, yet we still strive.
We weren’t expected to succeed, But we did.
We weren’t expected to grow, But we did…
Our country was not built for Us to survive but we are LIVING IT UP.
Our youths are one of the richest folks out there.
IF FOR NOTHING, YOU (CITIZENS) ARE EVERYTHING WORTH CELEBRATING …
I AM NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE, I AM A POLITICIAN, AN EX-DEPUTY GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE.
I owe My strength a celebration today as I owe my country a celebration.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE NIGERIA WORK”.
