So today we're going to do some focus on Africa.

A THREAD. Image
Africa as we all know is home to over a billion people (approximately 1.3bn people).
It's a greenhouse of nature and hosts minerals in huge reserves never seen anywhere on Earth. (The biggest Coltan reserve is in Congo)
Nigeria alone is home to over 40 minerals, Congo as I like to put it is the mineral royalty in Africa.
Africa is indeed very rich. Image
From our diverse cultures, to the sweet sleekness of our tongues, we have tribal marks and pierced ears, the land of the Afro.
We are Bantu and Igbo, Zulu and Akan. We're rich through and through. Image
Our lands cry green and flows with heavenly waters of the Zambezi river to the Victoria Lake, the Big Nile to the Congo River, we're blessed by the hands of the gods and formed in their very image. Image
Yet what do we see? We see our people crying for help, crying in pain, crying because they feel alone and dejected in their own land. Image
Have you not heard news? Of the protests in Nigeria, the over decade long genocide and holocaust in Congo, the linguistical division in Cameroun, The corruption and canker of Zimbabwe, Ghana, Nigeria and the countries of this continent.
Our leaders bought with 40 pieces of silver, they were bought with minerals that run through our continent without control, they were bought with the very things that was theirs to fight for. they gave our keys and our very future to the man from the unknown lands.
Our lands bleed, Women are being raped by the very men who are supposed to protect them, this is the Africa we find ourselves in today. Image
From Apathy to Coups, From genocide to Civil Wars, Our land has known no peace.
We ask till when must we sit idle and watch this old, brainless, and belly driven leaders drive us through the mud?
I say no more, we deserve better and we demand better, that is why we have a voice and we have the will to cause a change. So lend yours when a battle is going on, for you'll have others backing when the fire reaches your doorstep.
We say Afrika first, We say Afro first, we say Blacks first.
When you go out there, purchase a locally made product and together we will reconstruct our continent to look better for the future.
So Shout till #CongoIsBleeding is no more, Protest till #EndSWATNow #EndSARS is no longer a norm. Shout and Demand for the right things to be done.
Seek for #GoodGovernance
Thank You
