We present this beautiful work by Sammy Omotese interlaced with beautiful pictures of choice tourist attractions in NIGERIA. Sammy gives you more reasons to fall in love with our beautiful blessed country NIGERIA..Enjoy


To say that Nigeria as a country has the potential to be world leaders within a short span of two decades will be undermining the strength, technical and managerial acumen that most of her population are gifted with. A nation filled with erudite scholars, able bodied young men and women of robust entrepreneurial abilities, talented sports men and women, entertainment gurus and an overflow of exceptional improvisers!  Nigeria is blessed.

Azurnini Blue River is located in Abia State towards its boundary with Akwa lbom State. The River has become a resort for tourists because of the pleasantness it offers. The attractive features of the River include its crystal-clear blue water; canoe rides; sandy beaches with such relaxation facilities as chairs and tables. At the beach also, BBQ grill are delicacies provided for picnickers.

Commonly referred to as the ‘most populous black nation’ and ‘the giant of Africa’, Nigeria must indeed be a land of ‘giants’ currently waiting in the wings to be awoken by one mastermind that will trigger a gigantic seismic wave in the psychic of all Nigerians.

I do not claim to be an encyclopaedia of solutions to the myriad challenges we face, my primary aim therefore is to trigger a pattern that I hope will resonate with the youths in particular, and those that wish for a positive development in Nigeria in their life time.

The thick forest of the Osun Sacred Grove, on the outskirts of the city of Osogbo.It is one of the last remnants of primary high forest in southern Nigeria.Regarded as the abode of the goddess of fertility Osun which is one of the pantheon of Yoruba gods.

We know that where there is a challenge, there is always a ready solution to such a challenge within the challenge itself! Our current socio-economic malaise is a direct preponderance of our day to day thought pattern. What we constantly hold in our subconscious mind is what manifests in our lives. The very same principle governs our polity. It becomes imperative, therefore, that we consciously and deliberately alter what we think towards our beloved country.
Wikki Warm Springs is a famous attraction in the Yankari National Park. It is particularly prized for its warm water. It is available both night and day for tourists who cherish swimming

It is up to us all to have a direct shift in mental paradigm towards creating a new Nigeria devoid of all the prevailing and mitigating socio-economic dissatisfaction we have come to know in our over half a century years of post independence era.

At this point in our history, we need people that will make things happen-through idea implementation, and not mere speechifying as we have always experienced in our clime.

This is our chance as a nation to leap forward in a giant stride with goal setting, ideas execution and sustainability, principle of checks and balances, a whole new form of public enlightenment on the importance of education, health care and above others, the mental purgation of our ill conceived notion of tribalism, ethnicity and religious stagnation.

We have to uphold the rule of law in which is enshrined the principles of tolerance and understanding.The entire black race awaits Nigeria as a nation to stand up and show them the way forward. They await the giant in us to wake up and live up to the billings of world leadership. We all know how gifted we are. We all know that we are excellent in ‘imitating’ trends from the west chiefly.

Some short distance away from the Nigeria-Cameroon border is the very captivating sight called Agbokim Waterfalls. The Falls situated in Cross River State lies less than 30km from Ikom and is highly recommended for picnics. The falls are pleasantly surrounded by green vegetation.

We know how influential we can be because of our sheer number. Our strength lies in our number just like China and India. Brazil is equally maximising her number at the minute and we can attest to the growth they have experienced in the last five years.

Ogbunike Cave can be described as the very wonder of nature. The Cave, segmented into sections, is found in Anambra State, some few kilometres away from the Onitsha market town
Nothing stops us from becoming the biggest exporter of both raw materials and finished goods. Our laboratories need be fully utilised to provide ground breaking results that will make life a lot easier for us all. About time we started creating solutions to plaguing issues such as unemployment, under-employment, youth restiveness, poverty and hunger amongst other malaise that has beleaguered our polity for too long.

It is up to us to fathom ‘unethical solutions to our unethical challenges’. Nigeria arise and be counted amongst one of the world’s greatest in terms of national growth and development. We have the wherewithal. I dare us all to start looking inwards and come up with solutions rather than stay at the flanks and mourn continuously. This is our chance.
