The translation of “Welcome” in Eko Hotels shows the diversity in Nigeria. They just picked few translations out of the possible 250 languages in the nation. As Nigeria experiences one of the rituals of democracy tomorrow, may we have that era where someone or people will build the elements to stand in unity just as the translated versions of Welcome are structured in Eko Hotels.
Welcome means “Nnabata”, “Maraba”, “Kaabo”, and more. In some, it is short while in others, it is long. But Eko Hotels has space for all of them there. Yes, even the colors are different meaning each has got its own culture and uniqueness. Put them together, they make a nation.
May tomorrow bring a better promise for Nigeria as politicians begin a new chapter in the nation’s history.
