Steemit Engagement Challenge S2W2 | Steem4Nigeria Contest | No place like home: Nigeria my lovely country.
Greetings great steemians, it is lovely to begin week 2 of this contest. today we were instructed to write about our country. Honestly, my country is in a state of confusion and a lot is going on but regardless, I love my country anytime, any day, any year. In the next few words, I will be giving my reasons why I love whereby and prefer it to other countries. I am @camzy and below is my post.
My country is Nigeria popularly known as the giant of Africa. Nigeria is blessed and has almost 250 ethnic groups all coexisting together and working as one, with 3 major ethnic tribes which are the Igbos, Yoruba, and the Hausas. Also, Nigeria has 36 states with its capital as F.C.T Abuja. Nigeria is an oil-producing country whereby we export crude oil as a major source of survival and revenue.
Nigeria is a very interesting country, with very energetic and vibrant youths always ready to beat the clock to make ends meet. there are just so many but to mention a few, I will be listing and elaborating great things about my country Nigeria.
Like I mentioned earlier there are Just so many great things about my country regardless of the current downs, no one can deny there are no amazing things to reckon with in the country.
The Nigerian culture is a center of art that has kept the globe traveling from far and wide to witness the culture. As we have about 250 or more ethnic groups in Nigeria. in the same way, we have their cultures. Despite the numerous ethnic groups and about 500 or more languages, 3 cultures stand pronounced more than the others which are the Igbos, Yorubas, and Hausas.
When we talk about culture, we talk about the way we cook, dance, farm, behave, speak, and in totality our way of life in Nigeria. I think this is a great feature and this is what makes us unique and preferable.
The Nigerians are jovial and naturally funny people. they give in their best to ensure they get the job done and in good faith. I could boast they are the most hardworking set of people in the world.
The Igbos are known for their lovely dresses and their display on the dance field. below is an image of the Igbo attire
The Yorubas, are no different as they are known for their great hospitality and also how they love to party hard. below is an image of the Yoruba attire
The Hausa are known for their great influence in the political regions and their animal rearing most especially the cows. below is the image of the Hausa tribe
As insignificant as it may look, the Nigerian climate is something to reckon with as it is not extreme when compared to other countries. the Nigerian climate is not too cold and not too hot giving Nigerians the flexibility to put on whatever type of clothes they wish to wear.
Generally, the Nigerians are accommodating and very social people. The Nigerians tend to stand in for one another and are always on the lookout to help each other stand regardless of which ethnic group one is from. we saw examples from the demonstration of the #endsars movement where the country came as one voice to fight for each other
I really haven't tasted different foods from different countries but I am sure the native dishes in my country are simply the best. The Nigerians have different dishes based on the different ethnic groups. but if u are reading this and wish to visit Nigeria, Please try our food and thank me later. we cook nothing but the best. And my favorite is the Egusi soup and Eba it is an Igbo dish. below is an image of Eba and Egusi
Among all Listed above, I will be honest with you all, I prefer our food to other countries. I am not casting down any country but I am so proud of what my country can do in the kitchen. we make it look so easy and classy and most importantly, we make it healthy and tasty.
Next would be our culture, Like I mentioned and carefully describe the nature of our culture. You cannot just love our culture any less. the Nigerian culture is unique and has attracted tourists all over the world. I love my culture and would rate it a 5-star when compared to other countries. it is just awing to behold.
truly, there is no place like home, and if I eventually l leave Nigeria in search of greener pastures, First I would ensure to get the greener pastures and more. Because that is where the glory of a man lies. then definitely, I love Nigeria except for the bad governance and Insecurity. I would come bad to Nigeria any time convenient for the above reasons mentioned above. I LOVE NIGERIA.
