Amazing!! The only street in America that bears a Nigerian name (photos)


With background sounds of heavy traffic, You’re hearing the intersection of 44th Street and 2nd Avenue in New York City.
The northeast corner of this intersection is significant to the Nigeria story for two reasons. First, it is the site of Nigeria’s mission to the United Nations and their New York consulate.
Second, the New York City Council has renamed this corner Kudirat Abiola Corner. To understand the significance of Kudirat Abiola

we have to go back to 1993, the last time Nigeria experimented with democracy. Kudirat’s husband, Moshood Abioloa, ran for President and he won but the election was annuled by the then head of state Ibrahim Babangida

Now you know naija is global.
