I am about to raise another perspective with regards Sugabelly's last post here. Like seriously, it is not that I disagree with her. It is just that I think there is a small caveat on her admonition to Nigerian companies
So here is the story.
I just received word from one of my many spies in Canada`s capital that Carleton`s Nigerian Student Association just elected by a slim vote, close friend and colleague of mine from CIC, Nikhlesh Vashwani, as its Public Relation`s Officer.
But why is the election of some random dude into some Canadian university's Nigerian Student's association news? Afterall, it's not like its some American Ivy school or something. It's not even Canadian Ivy.
Well, it is because it is a real Nigerian Obama moment that raises serious questions about expectations of how a Nigerian should look.
As it turns out, Nikhlesh Vashwani is an Indo-Nigerian. He likely looks nothing like other people that have previously occupied his position...
