My Nigeria showcases friends of Nigeria who have either been to the country or have an interest in Nigeria. It is an avenue for them to tell the world their thoughts about Nigeria and her people.
The 7th edition of my Nigeria features Mohammed Jammal. Enjoy!
CTN: Please introduce yourself to our readers
I am Mohammed Jammal, a.k.a the White Nigerian. I was born in the city of Jos in Northern Nigeria. Lived there for all my life before I moved to London to study in 2006, where I completed both my Undergraduate in International Business and Masters in Global Management.
I moved back to Nigeria in January 2011 and I am currently working as a Business Development Officer for an IT company. I also do shows part time both in Abuja where I live and in Lagos. My last performance was at Lord of the Ribs with Basket Mouth at the Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
CTN: What do you think about CometoNigeria magazine and the website?
I think it is a good concept and is important that we get more people to come to Nigeria not just for business but also for pleasure. For me, I don’t only want to see foreigners come back here, I think Nigerians that have lived abroad for most of their lives need to come back home and make a difference.
Nigeria is not what it was 10 years ago. Things have changed so much in the past decade, its unbelievable. Fine, things may not be perfect, but where there is a will there is a way. CometoNigeria.com and the magazine is a great way to start.
CTN: What do you think about Nigeria and would you advise anyone to visit?
Nigeria is the best place in the world. I’m not saying this because it is my home. I am saying this because it is true. We have some of the happiest people in the world who are always welcoming.
We like to make people feel at home when they come to visit, whether at home or in the office. I recommend Nigeria both for pleasure and business. There are many opportunities in this country that no other country can offer. Now is the time to come to Nigeria.
CTN: Is Nigeria ready for tourism?
Definitely, no doubt about that. Nigeria has some great places to go to, however, the government needs to do more with regards to the tourism industry. I feel like foreigners only come to Nigeria for Business, but the country has so much more to offer.
There are great places to go for safari such as Yankari, Obudu Cattle Ranch, Gurara Waterfalls etc. I highly recommend Nigeria as a place to visit.
