From the objective point of view, the report from the UK that Nigeria will be the third largest economy by 2050 should not take us by surprise. The indications are there that Nigeria a nation of over 170 million people, with over 250 ethnic nationalities with a huge land mass, bigger than most countries in Europe and else means a very large market which is the first stimulus for economic growth . It took England annexing Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland to develop a great force in history leading to imperialistic struggle and expansion- The British Empire; where the sun was said never to set. Reading the report and giving the report berth, one is bound to say that the facts and figures are quite glaring, and is a clarion call for the nation and her people to wake up and seize the opportunities at their doorsteps. Nigeria as a nation as a matter of fact is the hope of Africa . With a growing and enlightened youth population that is catching up with the pace of technological development, the future certainly belongs to us ! Nigerian youths are doing very well in their various professions and careers all over the world . These forces when garnered and harnessed will no doubt produce the ingredients for a robust and vibrant economy. What is needed at this juncture on a strong foundation for growth. The UK report is not a rabble rouser. It is articulate and direct to the point! It is borne no doubt out of a painstaking research. The question on our lips should be: Why third? The British in their mindset knew quite frantically that the almighty U.S. is there as number one while the UK is second and Nigeria third! Nigeria needs to understand the position religiously and pursue it with all the vigour and strength. The strength of a nation lies in education which will guarantee youths’ effectiveness and national cohesion. The government should step up research and development . Our educational curricular should be reviewed and updated to meet up with universal best practices. We should learn to copy or borrow. Technology as a matter of matter is not transferred. It is either copied, borrowed or stolen. Our youths should be encouraged through means incumbent and otherwise to rise up to the occasion. Nigeria needs to have a well exposed, articulate and enlightened youths through a well orchestrated and result oriented scientific/ technical development that would be in the vanguard for technological pursuit for the nation and the continent! Nigeria undoubtedly is the hope and champion of Africa! Nigeria is the giant and beacon of black history . From the study of the historical evolution of times and nations, it is crystal clear that black history is in the offing which Nigeria as a nation is given the divine mandate to bring about to world consciousness. That powers that be that raised up the old world civilizations are here to help black history take its stand and begin the march of civilization. There is nothing drawing us back. 2050 is just 33 years away which is just at the tip of the finger. Much can be accomplished with a subtle and pragmatic approach to development . The purpose of this article is to wake up black consciousness to see that justice is done at the end of the day . Humanity obviously is waiting for black history to rise up to the occasion and take the lead in the all issues affecting our common humanity! The article is calling for a concerted action from all well- meaning individuals, groups and forces within and without to rally round one another for the historic struggle so that 2050 should not slip out of our hands . History and posterity will not forgive us if we falter. Black history should try as much as possible not to be distracted by divergent and divisive forces as to be found wanting at the end of the day . Black history is calling for all and sundry to unite and come together for this singular task. We urge all dissenting voices, embers of disunity and disintegration to re-appraise their position and agenda at this juncture and see to it that we seize the opportunity that is pragmatically calling for our attention. God who is the grand master and architect of history and historical evolution of times, epochs, eras, nations, and human-hood would help us and see that 2050 speak honourably for us and all humanity!
