I will not stop shouting until something is done o! Scrabble must feature in the forthcoming National Sports Festival.
The Scrabble community in Nigeria deserves nothing less.
Our world needs us to be the harbinger for the development of this beautiful game. It’s no coincidence that Nigeria is currently number one in Scrabble. It’s no coincidence that the only thing Nigeria is number one at is playing Scrabble.
Our children deserve a chance to grow up in a country that has as a NATIONAL IDENTITY something as noble as the erudite game of Scrabble.
A yes to Scrabble is a yes to INTELLECTUAL CAPACITY building. It is a chance for us to walk the talk of actually doing something about our steadily declining standard of education.
This is a chance for us to actually demonstrate that we are that giant of Africa by being the beacon for educational advancement, at least on our continent.
Am I talking too much? Well, don’t blame me. Help me share this video till those at the helm of affairs realize that a National Sports Festival in present day Nigeria cannot be complete without the game that we are number one at.
Thank you!!! – Wellington Jighere
