    I love Nigeria. I plan to move there to become a Journalist. Yes Nigeria has problems, with infrastructure, but culturally they are taking off! Imagine, how much the country could be delightful of tourist actually become intrigued. I think nigeria needs more money circulating around the common citizens, not just the politicians.But it is a beautiful lively place, that is coming of age.
