Happy Independence Day, Nigerians!

I have hope …

Hope for a better Naija;

where peace and

justice reign, above all else.

I have faith in

a place called home

for multiple ethnic

and religious groupings.

I can see from Kaura Namoda

to the creeks of Bayelsa

new cities and work places

built, fit for these 21st century.

I trust for a place of

technological advancement,

where talent trumps

when brain power matter.

I see a land of promise

For all irrespective of

creed, culture and calling.

What you see, you get!
