The Nations that stand, stand in groups.

Nations work because even the smallest piece of them does.

Since its founding in 1960, Nigeria has had 16 different leaders. The fascinating element is that 90% of the leaders had severe issues with their parental upbringing. They had poor parenting!

Family life and parenting are the most overlooked and under-discussed aspects of Africa’s story.

In the United States, divorce is openly discussed, while dirtier things occur in various African countries and go largely overlooked.

What do you expect a child who was abandoned by his father and raised by his suffering mother to do when he ascends to the highest office in the country?

Because they have never seen what a successful home looks like, we should never expect them to comprehend how a country works. If you can’t see or understand that when a country suffers, it’s actually a family that suffers, then the country will never be able to progress or achieve greatness.

Small components make up countries, and the tiniest aspect of a nation is family. If all of our countries’ families are not working, the nation will never work. There are a few issues that need to be addressed.

Perhaps our next set of inventions in African countries should focus on making families work rather than having digital currencies or building roads.
It is quite painful to be deprived of the delight of having a whole and happy family.
