Pastor Sam Adeyemi, founder of Daystar Christian Centre Church in Lagos is very passionate about Nigeria. Today, he decided to pose a pertinent question to his followers. Seeing as there is an American dream, it is only fitting for there to be a Nigerian dream, isn’t it? In fact, every country should have a dream- ideally. So what’s Nigeria’s dream? That’s what the good pastor wanted to know:
What is the Nigerian dream?

Riotous responses followed. The pulse of the people seems to swing between sullen because there is no such thing as a Nigerian dream to witty ’cause gotta have that Banana Island house to optimistic, for God is with us.

No Nigerian Dream
@sam_adeyemi great question!!! Apparently there is no Nigeria dream in our current system.We only have individual dreams,which most is GREED

@sam_adeyemi I read more about the history of Nigeria only recently. There and then, I found out that we never had a dream. It was dead on arrival

@sam_adeyemi Perhaps a rephrase of the question sir…'What should the Nigerian dream be? '
Lets be serious about this. Our progress depends on it

@sam_adeyemi A country cannot have a dream if the government and its people are not strategically inclined to a common goal .This is Nigeria

We only have "A Nigerian's dream", not "The Nigerian dream". We lack a collective goal/dream/vision as a nation. No idea what we stand for. https://t.co/jrW43GSfjW
