9ja to the Core(2)

Abuja was the bomb...I've said this and I'll say it again...if there's any where I'll love to live in Naij, it is most definitely ABJ!!!
I officially met Writefreak and it was awesome!!!She's a babe...as in B-A-B-E...lucky hubby :-)
We went to wonderland together and that was MARd fun.
I visited all my regular joints and was sure to check yahooza out for that special blend of kilishi they make like no other(yummy).
All in all my trip was wonderful and yes my head is back from the clouds where it was stuck for a while.
I kept hearing questions like No-Limit when are you coming back, aren't you coming back bladdy bladdy bla...well I will...in God's time abi?
Right this second, I know I am where God wants me to be(yes seriously)...plus relocation involves major planning(No Kidding!!!)...
I still love my Naija...btw a friend of mine told me I have blind love/loyalty for Nigeria, he is Nigerian and can't seem to understand why I always have something positive to say about Nigeria...He said the country is corrupt, government is eating deep into the foreign reserve and this is devaluing the naira hence the reason pounds is still strong in Naij inspite of the credit crunch...etc
This is a guy who knows how to "cut corners"...scratch that...who cuts corners in the same Nigeria...which as far as I'm concerned makes him as guilty as the corrupt peops he talked about.
I am not saying we don't have our issues in Nigeria...as a matter of fact we do...and they are major at that...But I will keep celebrating every WIN no matter how tiny it is...I will make noise about it!!!
I'll leave you with this...

You're not what you think you are...you're not what they think you are...you are what you think they think you are...Dr Sola Fola-Alade(So Who Do You Really Think You Are)

NoLimit said...

@Miss FlyHigh...Awww thanks babes...glad you like my blog...
I guess your friend and mine will make great pals and they can hangout and badmouth naija till they're blue in the face!!!lol
to be honest I simply stopped trying to understand his dislike for Nigeria...yes we have major issues in Nigeria but so does every other country and it is still my country...and as BJS said we need to start renewing our minds with regards to Nigeria...

BSNC said...

Good Naija Girl said...

How cool that you got to meet Writefreak! Too bad you two are anonymous or you could share some pics!

So glad you had a blast in Abuja.

And honestly, keep those positive comments and thoughts about Nigeria going! Nigeria has enough critics; celebrating the good is a worthy endeavour in my opinion!

Enkay said...

Welcome back!
I just returned from a trip to Abj too and I find the serenity of the place to be truly soothing.
If only I could swap that for the hustle and bustle of Lagos. *sigh*

You sure did have fun. And you met writefreak?! How cool is that?!

Naija will always be my Naija for life. I'll join my voice with yours to sing of her virtues no matter how little.

@Uzo... May be I got the spelling wrong, it is Yahuza…but I love to spell it as yahooza…(it gives it flavour… don’t you think so?lol)
It is behind AP plaza on Adetokunbo Ademola street in wuse…I think…can’t remember the Zone.

@Anonymous... Thanks my lady

@rethots … Like I’ve said before and will always say…I’m a naija gal inside out and I have as much access to naija as you or any other Nigerian!You hear me so?!!!

Nefertiti said...

Good to know u had a blast. I've heard so much about 'no-limit' nice to finally 'meet' u. and u met WF? I'm beefing you seriously...

I must confess i do have jaded views about Naija, but I never kid myself that the US is where I'm from. Naija is home regardless of the troubles we face therein!

StandTall-The Activist said...

no wahala... but I enjoyed pulling your leg sha-lol

doug said...

Glad you had fun. Naija rocks jo! Don't mind all dem haters.

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

oooh, glad you had a fab time in Abuja!

Nigeria is a fine country just like any other. Yes, our government has failed to do much of what other government's should do, but Nigerians continue to make the best of their circumstances and we rock!

=)

babajidesalu said...

I am so glad that there was NoLimit to having fun in our Nigeria. As I have always said, and you have reiterated, Nigeria is a gifted country and we should focus more on the good than the bad. Nigeria has no replica, PERIOD.

justdoyin said...

Pls carry on with the positive comments about Naija oh...let's celebrate that country; she has more than enough bad-mouthers as it is...

Glad u had fun in Naija/Abj n even met a blogger 2...

I like the quote @ d end...interesting stuff...
