USA Africa Dialogue Series - Quote in Africa:Nigeria wake up!

Nigeria has shortchanged Africa. Nigeria is Africa. If you want any of the best men and women anywhere in the world, and you go to the UK, who are the doctors there? It is Nigerians and Ghanaians and the history of other Africans. You go to the USA, the great man who performed an operation in Utera was a Nigerian. In any area you go to, you find Nigerians.

"The day Nigerians resolve that 'we are going to make Africa great, that is the day Africa is going to rise again. I am appealing to you Nigerians, wherever you are, wake up, because the day you wake up, Africa will never remain the same again".

"You are punching below your weight; you cannot afford to be grouped among the lightweights while you are Super heavyweights".

Again, why does Nigeria stand between the emancipation or not of the Black race?

I have been thinking about all these things for a while.

Then, early this week I had a conversation with my friend based in Guinea. He is a global sports icon, a true legend of Track and Field athletics, a two-time Olympian with Gold and Bronze medals, one of 4 African-American athletes that wore black berets and raised their clenched fists in the traditional Black Power Salute when they mounted the podium to receive their Gold medals for winning the 4 x 400 metres relay and for breaking the world record in the process at the Mexico Olympics in 1968- Professor  Patrick lumumba,Kenyan scholar  and activist.
