Best Davis who is a two time African Oscar Award winner for best Actor, People’s Choice, and also the president of American Nollywood Screen Actors Guild, speaks bitterly about the way some Nigerians talk about their country. On his recent visit to Nigeria, he acknowledged that Nigeria is blessed and endowed with both human and natural resources that no other country in the world can boast of. He spoke vehemently about the way most Nigerians who are supposed to be patriotic citizens tarnish the image of the country even in the midst of other countries and media. According to him “Nigeria is a great country and I couldn’t be any prouder to be a Nigerian” He urged his fellow citizens to help portray the image of Nigeria to the outside world as the great country that it is. People talk about America being the greatest nation on the face of the earth, it is because the citizens of America love their country and will do anything to defend her pride. John F. Kennedy during his January 20th, 1961 Inaugural Address said "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."  In the same line, I am calling on all Nigerian citizens to rise up and obey the call of our beloved country, serve with all your heart and might and defend her unity and pride. Let us like the Americans fly our national flag so high with pride and refuse to indulge in anything that will tarnish the image of our nation. I was so disheartened when I read a publication that a Nigerian wrote about Nigeria and Nigerians. Below is an excerpt from that publication.

“Welcome to NIGERIA!!! Where sex is free and love is costly, Where losing a phone is more painful than virginity, Where if you don't cheat on your partner you are not smart and sharp, Where bathrooms have become photo studios, Where getting a blackberry phone is greater than achieving a BSC Degree, Where yahoo guys think they have brighter future. If the children of Israel were Nigerians, they would have wasted a whole day at d RED SEA snapping and uploading their BB status like: ~ Chilling with Moses ~ Miracle tinz ~ Red sea turned dry land Oh my God!! ~ Moses on point ~crossing da red sea with leg ~ End of Pharaoh etc. … keep it rolling. WonderLand—–­­ -­�–>NIGERIA”

The time we spend writing things like this could be used in helping to build our great country, whether we like it or not, we are Nigerians and there is nothing we can do about it, we might decide to naturalize and become citizens of other countries, it still does not change the fact that our origin is NIGERIA.  Please fellow Nigerians, let us lift up our country so that the labors of our heros past shall not be in vain. Do not think of how great Nigeria can make you rather think of how you can keep Nigeria great.
