And to you, nigeria is yet to hit the rock bottom.
A nation where everyone now wanna do a voodoo to make money
A nation where Yahoo (419) song is all the vogue
A natino where pple cant even afford to eat
A nation where no affordable anything anymore?
If this isnt rock bottom, then, i will hate to see what rock bottom looks like.
PPle now packs themselves like sardine inside ships to their own death, cos minimum 15% of pple that are trying to run out of the nation are dead on the sea to europe.
A nation where a husband is driving his own wife to a man's house all cos of money.

I am so willing and ready to pray, however, the Bible says, Prayers without work is dead, so we need to pray and at same time change our own ways, we need to show Nigeria how much we love her, and not just fold our arms and expect miracle.
God will bless the works of our hands, and not just by folding arms

$$Rhino:Nigeria hasn't even yet to see rock bottom. The mindset of folk is still deceived where folk over here ranting and raging how advanced Nigeria has become. When they know good and well only certain places even know what advanced is. If you actually think you will see the day when Nigeria is a developed country, you must be drunk or high.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by $$Rhino: 10:08pm On Sep 11, 2008|
I am sure i will see it, but still if i never see it, at least my children's kids will see it and i will be dancing in heaven, that i contributed to it.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 10:10pm On Sep 11, 2008|
$$Rhino:Contribute my foot. Just keep on keeping on cause it is going to be a LONG time before any of this praying and wishing even comes into perspective.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 10:13pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Again I disagree. Nigerians have seen rock bottom, oh yes, they have. Like the majority of Africa, many have accepted it as the norm.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 10:15pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Kobojunkie:Well you might as well keep on getting used to it cause it gonna be while before yal see Mount Zion.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 10:30pm On Sep 11, 2008|
I don’t consider time the factor keeping us here. I believe the main is the mind of the people. Once the people are swayed into not only believing that change is needed but moved to act on it, in no time at all change will happen. Do we need to wait another 100 years after that to see change? No. Why? We live in a ready-made world. We no longer have to re-invent the wheel in any area as we have so many successful examples to choose from today. Are we going to do it?
Take for instance @Sky calling for people to act now. We have internet and phone available for people to reach senators. How many Nigerians own phones/cell phones etc. Too many. How many are actually going to pick up the phone and call their senators to show they are ready for change? Let’s wait and see.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 10:37pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Kobojunkie:What a dreamer. We are talking about Nigeria here, not some other foreign country. People aint gonna do nothing unless they get something out of it. They don't want to do something that is only going to make life for the future generations to enjoy. They want to enjoy it too. Just look at Zimbabwe for crying out loud.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by RibaduFan(m): 10:40pm On Sep 11, 2008|
if u think those senators are out to change things for the better, then u must be dreaming. Even if we call them from now till kingsom comes, they would end up doing what they want i.e emptying the treasury. What has become of the FOI bill? but passing a bill to increase their salaries/allowances was quite easy. Dont be deceived, salvation for this nation wont come from Abuja. It is when u and I make them realise that we want this nation to progress and that we would do anything to get this, that is when things would start changing.
Believe me these guys (those in government at the moment) are satisfied with the status quo, infact their prayers is that it shd remain the same forever. No amount of fone calls or emails would solve anything.
Interestingly though, we all know what the solution is, but we keep 'beating round the bush' and 'keep going round in circles'
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 10:47pm On Sep 11, 2008|
ROFLMAO!!! It is amazing …. While others deem me a hater of all things Nigeria, here you are calling me a dreamer for believing that it is possible to have better in the country.
Make I laugh put!! ROFLMAO!!!
I completely understand what you mean and yes, I know we are speaking of the same Nigeria. The problem we see today happens to plague black people all over the world today but the solution to our problems remain very simple ones.
I completely agree that people don’t seem to want to do anything unless there is something in it for them. We see that even here in America, but that does not erase the fact that the solution is right there in our hands as it has always been. Zimbabwe?? Look at Haiti… LOL!!!
Unfortunate, ain't it?
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 10:54pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Kobojunkie:At least in the States, you got folk ready and willing to go out and help their fellow mortals. Tell me how many organizations do you know in Naija do anything to help THEIR OWN people, then talk about helping others outside. We are greedy and we know it. We might deny it, but we know it is true.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 11:17pm On Sep 11, 2008|
I think the disease will end someday soon, even if we have to kill off those who continue to resist change, ROFLMAO!!
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 11:21pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Kobojunkie:The disease will continue to spread until our grandchildren find a vaccine.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 11:36pm On Sep 11, 2008|
OLORUN O ni JE!!! Tufiakwa!!! Allah se r iki !! Gbu fu asu n!!! I reject that , lol, ON NO way , If it takes me buying a machine gun for it to happen in my time, I will do it ooo!!! ROFLMAO!!!
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 11:40pm On Sep 11, 2008|
Kobojunkie:Nwannem, you betta get used to it cause the Nigeria you see now, will continue to stay that way until generations afterwards.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by idupaul: 11:43pm On Sep 11, 2008|
ur just a pessimist wit a loser attitude, haba ur own country again!
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 11:45pm On Sep 11, 2008|
idupaul:Imecha onu, kita.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Sky Blue: 11:49pm On Sep 11, 2008|
@onyinye if you continue to see things the way you asume they will always be instead of the way they can and should be why would you want to act to make them they way they should be? I find it amusing how people always get on the defensive when it is time to act, a million and one excuses are made to say why it will never work. But to right essay, you will see people just doing it. Please permit those who believe things can be different if we drive at that to hold on to that and act on that. I rather try to do something than sit and look and continue to say "it can never be".

in 30th century abi?
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by idupaul: 11:52pm On Sep 11, 2008|
u are just a common fishwife. we dont even need someone like u.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 11:58pm On Sep 11, 2008|
idupaul:Biko, can you hop off already, dang.
Sky Blue:Keep on dreaming nwannem. Nigeria is home to the potential and the greedy. We have potential, but we greedy as hell. WE as in all of us.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 12:02am On Sep 12, 2008|
I hope I see it before I die o. I mean if there is the possibility that I could be dead by the morrow, means it could happen before then as well. Lol… I hope it will happen and soon too cause the solution is too simple. But, if Nigerians continue to choose to stay at rock bottom level, then so be it. As for me and my family, we will have the best life possible, Nigeria or no Nigeria.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 12:04am On Sep 12, 2008|
Kobojunkie:You might as well get that mindset of not seeing the Nigeria of your dreams, cuz you aint.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Sky Blue: 12:06am On Sep 12, 2008|
lol, speak for yourself pleae. I don't know why people on this forum have a habit of wanting to speak for everyone, if you feel you are greedy then that is between you and your maker, don't come and smear me in thesame paint
Whatever excuse you might want to use in order to leave things the way they are is up to you, i have already forseen the futility in this arguement, have a nice day . For everyone else please, honestly, this constituion review is a big deal. All those shouting Niger delta this and that know themselves. An opportunity presents itself.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by bilymuse: 12:09am On Sep 12, 2008|
Brother Joseph, the dreamer
Nigeria is living on a borrowed time
The name Nigeria will cease to exist in 50 years time
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by sley4life(m): 12:10am On Sep 12, 2008|
Then we will have less people leaving the country, the airfare will reduce, no competition in the air sector, job don spoil for generator makers, we shall have long life, american embassy will pack their bag and baggaes back to their country. UN will hear am cos no way to exploit our oil. I cant keep mentioning
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 12:10am On Sep 12, 2008|
Sky Blue:Adios muchacho, I never said that i wanted nigeria to stay the way it is. Am i daft? of course not. Of course i want to see the Real Nigeria, not the the Potential Nigeria. We all can play our part in help changing it, but what unu niile want is, instant gratification.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by idupaul: 12:12am On Sep 12, 2008|
na u where go they answer sicko
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Kobojunkie: 12:18am On Sep 12, 2008|
Please can we allow individuals have people their opinion. We do not all have to see Nigeria in the same light to live. None of us here can predict for a fact that the situation in that country will change anytime soon. So I ask that we please allow each person his opinion UNTIL such a time when we are able to PROVE him/her wrong , not with more words but with action and substantial EVIDENCE.
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by Sky Blue: 12:18am On Sep 12, 2008|
This is something i just don't get, so everyone who dares to dream of a better Nigeria is living in fantasy? The thing about dreams is that a lot of people dream then work to make the dream a reality. In Nigeria it seems it is either just dream and not act at all to bring it to reality or just remain pessimistic. When the opportunity presents itself to act you will see people running away from it like it was the plague instead of seeing such opportunity to make things right as a blessing even, LOL, quite amusing. You said something that suggested "it is Nigeria" hence contacting reps and senators is impossible because "it is Nigeria". Have you actually tried to get in contact with any member of the house before or anybody in such authority to make a difference, ever, that leads you to believe it is impossible or would you rather just say that? I just don't get it but anyway, it is a free forum so to each his own.
It seems if you want to scare Nigerians there is no need to carry a gun, just say "come lets solve our problems" and you will see people jumping into bush,
|Re: Imagine This Kind Of Nigeria by onyinye2(f): 12:24am On Sep 12, 2008|
Sky Blue:Why in the world would I even want to contact one of those folk? What am I wanting from them? Assurance, security, better life? Don't think so. Better off taking thing into your own hands. Dreaming for a better Nigeria is just utter stupidity. What is dreaming going to do when folk aint willing to die, fight, sacrifice for it? Look at the Civil Act Movement with akata people. They wasn't looking for a better life for them, but for their descendents. But not ndi Nigeria. Nope, they want the fruits of their labor too.
