We have been hearing stories of Igbo students winning international tech competitions of recent. We should do our best to nurture them. We shouldn’t just celebrate their victories. We should instead…
build on them.
I remember Chinedu Echeruo who got about $1 billion from Apple for his app. I believe we have many Echeruos among us. We just need to nurture them.
Lionel Messi first shined in Nigeria 99 (Junior World Cup) as a teenager. He wasn’t abandoned. Today he is such a phenomenon that some people even question if he is human. Of course Messi is not super human. He is just a human whose people never abandoned him.
We should not abandon our own.
