Nigerians talk. We all know it – from the office, to the marketplace, to the village and from the city – we Nigerians make it a point to have our voices heard. While we continue to make use of traditional means of communication, a growing number of Nigerians, young and old, are taking advantage of the blogosphere in order to reach a much larger audience than ever imagined. The past few years have witnessed the rise and rise of Nigerians bloggers both from within Nigeria and abroad. We are incredibly proud of this growing movement and wish to support it by presenting the best of what Nigerian bloggers have to offer.
NigeriansTalk is a weekly review of posts written by bloggers of Nigerian extraction, bloggers living in Nigeria and bloggers who blog about Nigeria. NigeriansTalk seeks to cover the wide spectrum of perspectives on various social, political, and personal issues, issues that affect Nigerians at home and abroad. We would like to recognize those bloggers who through their efforts sustain a much needed dialogue on the state of the nation. We hope that through our collective voices, we will bring about the future we seek for our country.
In the upcoming weeks, bloggers Olumide of loomnie.com and Nneoma of pyoowata.blogspot.com will select blog posts on and/or by Nigerians on selected topics. Relevant posts on the selected topics will be summarized and presented in a single post per review here on NigeriansTalk. Our posts will be open for discussion and your comments are highly welcome.
We hope to involve as many Nigerian bloggers in this pan-Nigerian blogging project.
