Four years ago Naijiant.com was launched to fill a massive gap in Nigerian political and socioeconomic commentary. Many readers have wondered where the name “Naijiant” came from. It was a combo based on the notion that Nigeria is meant to be the “Giant of Africa” and has been producing leadership that has reduced it to the level of an ant. So, depending on your point of view, when you say “Naijiant” it either conjures an image of a giant or an ant.
Naijiant.com was actually launched in January 2015, timed to coincide with the (s)election in February, which was then postponed.
History is repeating itself again today with yet another (s)election postponement, this time done even beyond the eleventh hour, and Naijiant will continue to record the Nigerian story in its own inimitable way. We look forward to another four years with our readers.
