Telecoms giant, Globacom, has asked Nigerians to maintain a positive attitude about the future of the country, saying that in the midst of present challenges, there is still a lot to be grateful for.
The company said that with the huge potentials in the country, there was no doubt that Nigeria will be great again.
In an Independence Day message from its Group Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Mohamed Jameel, the company urged Nigerians to be hopeful, noting that the trying times are temporary and would eventually go.
â€œWe need to be hopeful and to allow this hope to drive us in all we do; in governance, in the civil service, in the private sector, in sports and in all spheres of our polity. This is because a people that have accepted defeat in their minds and attitude cannot expect to rise from the dust,â€ he said.
Jameel added that it is only with a positive attitude and a can-do spirit that Nigeria can rise to become a great nation.
According to him, Nigeria still has its potentials intact, despite the difficulties it has gone through.
â€œOur manpower, our values, our large market, our spirit of enterprise, the creativity of our youth, our intellectual abilities, our natural resources and our vast arable land are evidence of a great nation that will someday emerge depending on our will to succeed,â€ he said.
He explained that it is these potentials that Globacom seeks to celebrate in its new campaign tagged Naija Bam Bam.
Naija Bam Bam celebrates the pride of the Nigerian nation through a celebration of the glorious moments, events, achievements of its people; moments and situations where Nigeria and her nationals have excelled, especially on the global stage.
The campaign is being expressed through a series of commercials, events, publications and product branding among others.
Globacom congratulated Nigerians on its 51 years of nationhood, saying that the unity of the country, in spite of the long transition to democracy, the civil war and several upheavals, is to be celebrated.
