2015 has been an eventful year. For Nigeria...
2015 has been an eventful year. For Nigerians, it is the year in which we saw the first civilian-to-civilian handover in the country. Despite the economic and political problems that still plague our dear nation, it is still a very FUN and EXCITING place to be. Nigerians who have spent a prolonged time abroad understand this more deeply. Africa as a whole continues to make slow but steady strides economically. According to Bloomberg and Business Insider, Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Congo DR, Cote d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Rwanda are among the 20 fastest growing economies in the world. Clearly, there is growing hope for the continent, which has spawned a renewed sense of excitement about Africa. We hope the coming years bring greater growth for our dear continent and the world economy at larger!
We pray that the world experiences greater peace with fewer wars in 2016. For us at www.moofyme.com, 2015 was an equally eventful year as we launched our platform online. So, we would like to take this opportunity to wish a very Happy New Year to all our readers!!! You are the reason we write!!!
