God bless Nigeria! A state blessed with cultural values, great histories, abundant resources, and tribes of great powers. Nigeria is not just a nation, but a nation of empires; and our president is not just a president, he is the president of emperors. Some of the greatest Empires in Africa's history are in Nigeria today: the Kanuri empire of Borno, Benin kingdom, Ọ̀yọ́ empire, Sokoto caliphate, are part of the empires found in Nigeria today. Nigeria is not call the giant of Africa for nothing; in fact, in Africa, Nigeria is capital. Nigeria is the archive of Africa's greatness, every cultural values, and the originality of Africa is deeply innate in the Nigerian people today.
The Wean Out Of A Suck
The Wean Out Of A Suck: When I’m being asked, what is that one thing you love so much about Nigeria: It is always the "suffering and smiling" for me. We may perceive this to be negative, but trust me, this is part of our major strength, and what distinct us by far from the rest of the world. To be born and brought up in Nigeria alone is a sign of conquest, I mean, to be alive, well and healthy with all the ordeals faced is a great deal. To abuse Nigerians as a foreigner you are is inhuman, and it shows nothing but cruelty. Why not live our life first, and let see maybe you’ll survive; then, you have the might to criticize a Nigerian. No matter the hardship, you’ll still get a smile. This make us look unserious at times giving a burlesque treat to our society, because matters that requires our attention and optimum seriousness on the state of our nation are being found humorous most times. You won't have to blame Nigerians for this, thoughts on the state of the national affairs alone can result to frustration of the greatest magnitude.
The Article Of Waste
Prince Henry of Portugal was called the “navigator" because of his dedication to geographical exploration. Henry developed during boyhood a thirst to know the geographical truths of the world. Each explorer he sent out reported fully on his experiences and brought back specimens of peoples, birds, plants and trade goods. Prince Henry had learn that the Sudanic peoples were neither subject to north African rulers nor in military alliance with them. Therefore, he conceived the plan of seeking a seaway to gold supplies of western Sudan (West Africa Today). Somewhere about 1419, he gathered together a group of able geographers, map-makers and astronomers. He also recruited captains capable of sailing ships into the unknown and recording their observations coastlines, so that their experiences would provide knowledge to guide and assist later voyagers. Later, Portuguese businessmen criticized Henry's expenditure of so much capital on enterprises unlikely to yield profit. The greatest result of Henry's work were not seen until after his death. After Henry's death, his widely acclaimed wasteful navigation witnessed the advent of the trans-Atlantic trade, led to the prominence of Christianity in Africa, and also served as an open-gate for Europeans, most especially the British and French into Africa.
