Nigeria, blessed with many inspiring and aspiring men including women doing great and making us proud home as well as abroad. She (Nigeria) is not short of gifts and the ever dynamism of her colossal talents have been helped with the multifaceted ethnics, religions, and tribes.
Divided we fall, united we stand. Thus, I am always happy. The ecstasy meets no boundary when I see or hear of Nigerians staking the name Nigeria clearly on the globe. The contribution of technology has been embraced and used in amplifying the blessings of our dear nation.
I found myself some years ago (in the blogging world) out of the necessity to fill the void and promote the good name of our dear Nation. In this quest, I have found many Muslim Women Bloggers (Muslimwers) in this trend.
I am dedicating this article to some of the Muslimwers inspiring Nigeria and making us proud in the blogging world.
