NIGERIA @ 55: Labran Maku & Olusegun Obasanjo, Two Nigerians Heroes of Our Time

 As Nigeria celebrates 55th Independence Day today, I’m happy that we are still united as a nation, country and as a political state. The nationhood of Nigeria started in 1914. I don't want to go deep into history. The thing is, I don't get it when people say we are not yet a nation, it's completely a 'nonsensical talk'.Nigeria as a nation is a body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language.

One man that believes in this nation is Nigeria’s former Minister for Information Labaran Maku, as a Northerner, he choose to join APGA, a popular party in the East/Igboland. Even though he lost the Nasarawa State Governorship Election to APC candidate Tanko Al-Makura, I still see him as a winner. Labaran Maku is a symbol of Nationalism. I pray he becomes the governor of Nasarawa State someday. 
Another man I cherished so much is former president Olusegun Obasanjo. This man is my Nigerian Hero. He changed my life; I’m still enjoying the legacies he planted. Obasanjo is like a God-sent to me and my family .
As a Professional Blogger and Political Scientist, I'm a lover of peace and unity. Even though, we are still faced with insecurity and other fault lines, Nigeria remains a safe haven for everyone. I am an Ikwerre man from Rumuji, Port-Harcourt and I have been living in South Western state for many years. I feel at home living in Lagos State because of the spirit of unity that is binding us as a nation. Imagine, what Nigeria would have become if those secessionists in 1967 succeeded in their quest to quench Nigeria. 
I am also using this platform to tell Nigerians who are supporting any group that is against the progress of this nation to denounce such group. Most of these groups that are establishing illegal radio stations to cause trouble in the country are not Nigerians and are not "EXISTING".

Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY NIGERIANS
