Nigerians have a certain generosity of spirit and industriousness that would remind many Americans of home, if we would just allow ourselves to look beyond our preconceptions.

I’m not saying there are not bad people here. The headlines are what they are for a reason. And corruption does exist at every level of society here. But there is a decency that can be attributed to so many people here… and I would know. I talk to many every day. Even the majority of the people who lie to you just want a better life. I have my duty, but I can understand their motivation.
