This is who I am...

I am Lily Johnson

I am a Nigerian woman

I am against all forms of sexual violence.

I am against human trafficking and slavery.

I am against terrorism. I am against jungle justice because it should be a crime to take laws into your hands.

I am against tribalism.

I am against all kinds of fraudulent practices.

I am against racism.

I am against the violation of basic human rights.

I am against the oppression of the poor and helpless.

I am all for supporting noble causes.

I am all for National and World peace.

I am all for empowering, educating and motivating women and the youth.

I am all for the true practice of democracy.

I am all for fairness, equity and justice.

I just woke up this morning and found myself writing this. I don’t know if it is because of the gist a friend gave me last night about a Chinese site that blocked his IP after sending them emails about a product or the not so recent travel warnings issued by the US [Click here][And who would blame them for wanting to protect their citizens] or the fact that so many things have been happening in recent times that beg the question ‘What is going on?’

One thing is for sure though, a lot of Nigerians would stand up for what is right and I am one of them.

Hope your week is going well? God bless you.

Lily Johnson

  1. I just checked out the US website. I dont blame you for being distressed. its annoying. i do blame our govt who have done nothing to protect our image. But then again, its just media propaganda. We shall ovrcome!!

  2. @Ginger: Yes, I don't know if they really do anything about our image. Its just crazy. And yeah, we shall overcome!

  3. The Nigerian government has failed us, see us in the midst of Iran and Afghanistan, it's so heart breaking I could cry..

  4. @Coy: It is sad really. I couldnt believe it either. Our government isnt doing much and it's a pity.

  5. Oh my God! I just love who you are. Great piece, first time here and following.

  7. really frustrating, these our leaders sef eh!. loving your blog so am following. www.apysworld.blogspot.com

  8. thanks for stopping by my blog chica

  9. I think I'd be more afraid to visit Oakland, California (right next to where I live) than I would Nigeria. The Nigerian people I know are all lovely people and I've known quite a few. They are honest, they are smart, they are beautiful and charming too. There are bad people in every country. And good people too. Nigeria is no different from anywhere else.

  10. @Priscy: Thanks dear and i will be waiting for your first post.

    @Chic: You are so welcome hun.

    @Linda: Thank you so much for that comment Ma. [hugs]
