A country where the President’s children, grandchildren and great grandchildren can attend public schools because there is no fear of inadequacy in the quality of education. This is my dream for Nigeria.

A country where clean water is available to all, where tap water is safe for consumption, where the rivers, springs and streams are free from human and animal waste, these are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where, asthmatic patients are not afraid to walk in open space because there is less pollution. This is my dream for Nigeria.

A country where the Chinese, British and American would love to spend their holidays and not vice versa, where people would be proud to hear their musicians sing and not follow or worship foreign musicians. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country that people would want to study till tertiary stage, not travel abroad for better education, where people do not go abroad for better job opportunities or newly wedded couple would rush to another country for the sake of a better life. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where, travelling in and out is easy, where wastage of time is less and the air conditioner keep cooling the atmosphere. A country where citizens will not complain about space, cleanliness and ventilation in public areas but praise the good work of the Government, these are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where, the products are cheap especially food because the farmers are encouraged to work more by providing the right equipment, for example, tractors, fertilizers, where the farmers can be counted as the rich. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where, crime rate is low, where everyone is busy with legal jobs, where you can get a purse lost and get it back with its content complete. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where surgeries and medical services are not delayed but done as soon as possible, because the materials and equipment are in hand, where doctors and medical workers would say “This surgery should be done in Nigeria. That is where I recommend.” and the Patient would agree. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where a cobbler’s daughter can go to school, where the low class children’s dreams are not crushed, instead they are even better, where the future is always bright and hopes are not tampered with. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where, food poisoning at public canteens are less often because the food process is pure and not contaminated. These are my dreams for Nigeria.
A country where quality products are being sold and natural resources are not misused. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where rain would come and go, not stay and have sleepovers on our roads, a country that has deep canals and gutters for sewage flow. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where roads are clean, the trash bins are not far from your reach, where you would hardly see a wrap. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

A country where technology is sufficient to all, affluent and poor, rural and urban, influential or not, politicians or the masses. These are my dreams for Nigeria.

The most recurring dreams are:
God stops the embezzlers and their grievous crimes and Nigerian citizens would be proud of their country and will stop forming accents to fool people of their lineage, Nigerian citizens would heartily say “We love Nigeria. We are proud to be Nigerians.”

All these dreams are impossible without technology. How is technology going to achieve this?

-The use of technology to provide environment-proof materials to protect the cables and wires from natural occurrences like rain, lightening etc to prevent power outage.

-The use of technology to provide cleaning agents and materials to clean the medical equipment and machines, also efficient fixing tools in case it needs repairing.

-The use of technology to create servicing equipment to keep the machines in good situation.

-The use of technology to create filter machines and rust-proof metals to maintain clean water.

-The use of technology to create attractive infrastructure and relaxation centers.

-The use of technology to create food scanner to protect foods from getting contaminated by harmful microorganisms.

-The use of technology to create sufficient dustbins in order to have a conducive environment.

-The use of technology to keep proper records of government funds to discourage embezzlement.

All my dreams can be fulfilled if technology is applied and it is applied correctly.

GOD BLESS NIGERIA!
