We have so many issues and this is not one of them. Nigeria is not suffering from an international perception problem. It is not because of international perception we do not have light, water, education, health care etc.

We have to earn the respect!

I think what CNN has done is lazy but I do not think they will be losing any sleep over the error... you will keep seeing adverts from our banks and telcos.
