Nnemkadi Ogwumike has been named as the Most Valuable Player of U.S. WNBA League in 2016, after she led her team to clinch the 2016 League Championships. Congrats, Nwa Ada Igbo. Also, her sister, Chiney Ogwumike, selected by the Connecticut Sun as its Number One draft pick. Their double success is likely to be as a result of Equianoism, a learnable way of getting extraordinary achievement that is inbuilt in many Igbo and Afro Americans.

If Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari can put qualified Igbos into strategic economic posts, they will turn Nigeria into an economic powerhouse in no time, and end the bloody recession we are faced with. The world knows. Nigeria should know.

Deme, nwa afor Igbo.
Everything is going from bad to worse in Nigeria. Because the US dollar is so high, and we don’t export any other thing but oil, we are like an unemployed person that has no savings. Things get worse every day. The only thing we have for sure now is a thin sliver oof hope, nothing else. Our policy makers are just hoping that oil climbs back, that is their policy.
Nothing is certain anymore. If the second richest man in Nigeria can move from being a billionaire to being a millionaire within months, then what happens to the rest of us? What hope do we have?
They say we should go back to agriculture, that it requires little investment and crops can grow withing 3 months. But going back to agriculture is not safe, as herdsmen are still reported to be killing farmers-and cows eating up their crops. So, how will Nigeria recover? How will we diversify from oil when the very farmers that would have helped such are being killed in their farms?
Governor Fayose of Ekiti State, one if the most detribalized and forthright politicians ever in Nigeria, has come out with unusual praise for the Igbo people. While recieving an Igbo delegation in Ekiti State, he heaped praise on the hard working Igbo people. He said, “Whatever anybody says, the Igbos are a unique people in the country. God forbid, if Nigeria should break, they are the only nation that can survive because they are industrious people.
