Happy #54th #Independence #Nigeria.

Many of you by now must have heard about my National award.

Member of the order of the Federal Republic ( MFR) Many read my ” mixed reaction” and “consulting with elders” remarks.

So I listened to the voices of wisdom.

I went, got awarded and decorated and am Truly Appreciative.

Appreciative of a country who still produces opportunities for her children, despite the many abuses and mismanagement by her children.

Appreciative of a strong country that never fails to smile even sometimes annoyingly “suffering and smiling” irrespective of her situation

Appreciative of a country that is proud to call me it's own , groom me and present me to the world, trained and ready to fight

Appreciative of a country that's still Holding on waiting so desperately for us her children to Come back home, wake up, love her, nurture her, honor her ……. Enjoy her.

Nigeria my country , my mama thank you for the recognition , I love you and look forward to seeing you happy and dancing again in your colorful robes amongst the best mothers of the world.

To the first Daughter of Mama Africa. #HappyBirthdayNigeria and Thank You. One of your children, Omotola."
