Independence day celebration; @60 Nigeria still behaves like a child

@60 so many Communities are still looking for water to drink.

@60 so many communities do not have good access roads.

@60 we are still hustling instead of living our desired dreams.

@60 we are spending just 7% of our budget on education. (primary, secondary & tertiary education)

@60 we are spending just 6% of our entire budget on health.

@60 our depth profile is currently at 33 trillion naira, and yet we are one of the largest producers of crude oil in the world.😭😭😭😭

@60 our standard of living is so low that an average Nigerian lives below $1 per day.

This is heartbreaking.

Following World Bank standards, a person is said to live in extreme poverty if he or she lives below the poverty line of $1.9 or 700 Naira per day.

It doesn't mean that I am not a patriotic citizen but we must face the reality. We need to know where we are in order to know where we are going.

Let me stop here to celebrate fellow Nigerians for still holding on in spite of all.
