I had to post this story because it represents a confirmation of an idea I had, and discussed with my daughter yesterday. Read and see how Turkish investors have come together to provide a service. Yes, they are investors. Yes, their goal is to make money. But, boy, what a service these investors are providing. When we, yes, we (myself inclusive) spend time writing and discussing the dire needs of Nigeria, we should begin to spend time thinking of engaging in practical projects. Only then would we begin to positively contribute to the development of our country, partake in economic development and have direct opportunities to change the Attitude and Mindset of Nigerians. This is a WAKE-UP CALL for every Nigerian resident abroad. I shall soon make known my idea known and invite Nigerians for their positive, not ‘grammatical’ contributions. – Jide Salu
