Most Nigerians are really making Nigeria proud in the diaspora, through their hard work in their various field of specialization. These proud Nigerians can be found in the Medical line, political lines, Business line, and also in the force department of the various country where they reside.
It is interesting to note that some of these individuals have contributed positively to the growth and success of the place of residence.
But sadly enough, these individuals are not well recognized and applauded by society for making Nigeria proud abroad. their legacies seem to be forgotten in a hurry. the media, on the other hand, has not done enough to protect them and their good works to the society in order to make the upcoming generation to learn from them and become useful as well.
Instead, we see the social media catching fire in condemnation of Nigerians who committed one crime or the other in the diaspora, it will become the news headline of our national dailies. Such a situation has gone a long way in projecting the nationals as criminals that should be avoided whenever they are around. So while we condemn those who shamelessly went abroad only to engage in criminal activities, Let us also appreciate those who are doing well.
