Over two months ago, a young, talented and intelligent Nigerian in the person of Ozioma Udeagwu (Okey-Kalu), an English Lecturer at Federal School of Statistics, Enugu expressed her displeasure over the negative news being spread across the globe about #Nigeria and her citizens.
She had this to say…
“A lot of us are angry and disappointed with the latest happenings around the globe, where #Nigeria is given a bad face. The truth is that bad news spreads fast. But I want to believe that good ones spread faster only if we can pay attention to them. Well, I think it’s high time we started bringing home and sending out good news about our country. It shouldn’t be bad stories all the time, should it? We have honest, hardworking, intelligent and diligent #Nigerians. Only a few are the bad eggs. For that we shouldn’t be #branded badly because of them.”
Her frustration over this issue is not farfetched from our reason behind the #RebrandNigeriaCampaign.
The urgency to change this narrative is very important and we beckon on all #Nigerians to join in on rewriting our story as a people and a nation.
