In just concluded World Tech Festival in Monastir Tunisia 🇹🇳, four Nigerian school boys have clinched the bronze medal. Namely:
1) Ugwuishi Meshack Ogonna
2) Chuka- Umeora Onyedika Anthony
3) Nwachukwu Chukwualuka Daniel
4) Machi Chukwuagozie Dominic.
They held off stiff and fierce competition from 40 other countries like Canada 🇨🇦, China 🇨🇳, South Korea 🇰🇷, Turkey 🇹🇷, Tunisia 🇹🇳, Bosnia 🇧🇦 Etc.
The bronze boys achieved this feat with their device called “Adaptable Alternative Power Supply for Sub-Saharan Africa”
I haven’t seen most Nigerians sharing and celebrating these remarkable feat by these kids. I don’t see many Nigerians telling the whole world they’re Igbos and listing their names. But they were busy to share and tell the world the other boys who robbed a store in UAE 🇦🇪, are Igbos.
When Five girls from Regina Pacies Secondary School Onitsha, Amanbra state, who represented Nigeria and Africa at the World Technovation Challenge in the Silicon Valley in San Francisco, US won the Gold Medal in the contest last year. Majority of Nigerians didn’t share, celebrate or tell us they’re Igbos and listing their names as;
1) Promise Nnalue,
2) Jessica Osita,
3) Nwabuaku Ossai,
5) Vivian Okoye.
The Golden girls won the Challenge with a mobile application called the FD-Detector which they developed to help tackle the Challenge of fake pharmaceutical products in Nigeria.
When you tell the world that the five Nigerian UAE armed robbers are of Igbo extraction, also tell them that the five Silicon Valley world Technovation champions are also Igbos. Tell them the four Monastir 2019 African Science and Technology Competition Bronze medalists are also Igbos.
Many acclaimed educated, religious, exposed, enlightened, Woke and conscious Nigerians are low key tribal bigots.
