Adesua Etomi in an Instagram post titled “Not For Sale”, shared a touching message she addressed to young Nigerian girls. In the video, she spoke of the hardship in Nigeria and how it drives young girls in their quest to find a better life fall into the trap of human traffickers. However, it often turns out that they were better off living here in Nigeria than living in degrading and dehumanizing conditions they end up finding themselves.
She added that young girls with dreams, talents and drive can still make it in Nigeria. There are several female entrepreneurs who started from scratch and are making it in Nigeria today because they worked hard and believed in themselves. The worst thing that can happen is being shipped off to a country you know nothing about and being found in a situation where you are helpless. Most people often think that it’s better to travel abroad. But it’s better to be here in Nigeria round family and friends that love you.
She concluded that it’s possible to make it here in Nigeria. Adding that though she lived outside the country for a while, her dream actually came through in Nigeria.
