Nigerian government under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari, failed to join the league of more gender-balanced governments in the world. The only African country on the league is Rwanda.
The US was livid; how can Africans decide to shun clothes discarded by Americans? If Africans, regarded as the poor of the earth would not buy used American clothes, who will?
As we celebrate the exploits of the Post-Genocide Rwanda and its trail-blazing President, Paul Kagamé, let us apply our minds to what made this possible in Rwanda, and not Nigeria.
There is a Rwanda that is their own; a Rwanda to which Paul Kagamé and his People owe their allegiance and loyalty. A Rwanda they wholeheartedly seek to build back and build up into the 21st Century.
The problem is that there is no such Nigeria which we own and to which we owe allegiance and loyalty.
Rwanda on Saturday set alight the Flame of Hope at the 24th commemoration of genocide, where President Paul Kagame urged the preservation of the “truth” of the facts on genocide for future generations.
