Young Nigerians, many of your fellow citizens in America are doing great things. America offers huge opportunities and it knows how to honor everyone – including Nigerians. Sure, bad news move very fast. But that does not mean we do not have a tradition of adding value in America.
Few months ago, I reported that I offered assignee rights to a Patent to the United States Government. That patent is going to be used in the space. It is already deployed in medical equipment. There are things many of us do that we cannot write because they are either proprietary or classified. But Nigerians are awesome in America.
I have worked in NASA matter anti-matter annihilation project under the project manager, Prof Ben Oni, a Nigerian. He is a busy man to talk to the press or have a social media account but he is a Nigerian.
These crazy people must not shape how you see your fellow citizens living in America: most are honourable.
We will get over this challenge – we always, as Nigerians------
