“First, it used to be within the U.S but on a faithful night, in the dream, I saw myself flying with wings and in the dream, I could see a signage saying Welcome to Nigeria and I woke up with a great fear, shouting Nigeria right from the dream. The fear was so great because I never planned coming to Nigeria as at that period in time”.
