Kenya Is Ahead of Nigeria In All Aspect (Fact Don't Lie) by TonyeBarcanista(m): 9:10pm On Sep 03, 2016
I am saddened by the continuous act of some of my compatriots to always engage in social media fight with fellow Africans, most notably our brothers and sisters from Ghana and Kenya.

It is even unfortunate that these countries Nigeria youths love to abuse on social media are doing better than our potentially great country in virtually all sphere despite the fact that we(as a country) have more revenues, potentials, and opportunities. If Nigerians are not aware of the superiority(in terms of living) of other Africans over us, I will have to educate them using Kenya as a case study.

While Nigerians have always pride in the self titled "African Giant" rhetoric, facts on ground shows otherwise. Though we generate more revenue than Kenya, which is 70% due to the gift of nature under our soil(Petrodollars), Nigerians still lag behind greatly in basic things when compared to the East African giant.

According to 2015 data from World Health Organisation, Nigeria's male and female life expectancy are 52years and 56 years respectively, meaning an average Nigerian is expected to die before he/she turns 60. Meanwhile, the expectancy for Kenyan male and female are 61 and 66 years respectively. Similarly, while Nigeria has the 10th highest infant mortality rate worldwide with average 72 deaths per 1,000 birth, Kenya's infant mortality rate is rated 52nd in the world with average 32 deaths per 1,000 births. This means it is safer to give birth in Kenya than in Nigeria, and an average Kenyan living in Kenya is expected to live longer than an average Nigerian living in Nigeria.

Though Nigeria has more tourism potential than Kenya, but Kenya is one of the choice destination for vacation in East Africa. While Nigeria managed to rake in $601 million as Tourism receipt(Revenue) in 2014, Kenya raked in $1.833 billion in the same year. Nigeria can't even boast of a National carrier meanwhile Kenya Airways, the National Carrier of Kenya boasts of 45 Aircrafts in their fleet with 4,000 workforce strength. In addition, Kenya Airways is reputed to be one of the best in Africa.

In Africa, Kenya is the leader of Mobile money. Nigeria is still still battling to get it right in the ICT sector with poor infrastructure, lack of power, lack of political will, and fantastically corruption.

At present Nigeria is experiencing recession in her economy, one would expect Nigerians to shun frivolties and seek for ways to turn the recession to prosperity instead of wasting productive hours fighting our African brethren over irrelevances. Why would one who is rationing his/her phone battery life due to epileptic power supply still spend the little battery life s/he got through his/her generator to abuse someone in Nairobi who is neither rationing his/her phone battery life nor is depending on generating set for power? There is no trophy or reward for social media fight, Nigerians should stop sending the wrong image to the world that our greatness lies in social media wars.


Nigeria is a great country with potentials, filled with great prospects, but we can never be great if we don't channel our time and resources to fix our country.

A word should be enough for the wise... May God Bless Us All, and Bless Nigeria

Which one is Igbos and Kenyans? How does this affect Igbos? Are Igbos no longer Nigerians? Are they Kenyans?

Now tell me, how does social media insults negates the fact that Nigeria is lagging behind the East African nation? How does it help our high infant mortality rate? Help boost tourism, attract investors, help our life expectancy improve etc?


Which sane society that is facing challenges will take to efight? Greece was virtually the scorn of Europe but how many Greeks did you see "defending" their fatherland through SM e-War?

I don't blame the Kenyans and the Ghanaians for constantly taking potshots at this shitty country called Nigeria. At best they are a country with one or two major tribes that are related in one way or the other and separated by few languages. But this hellhole shouldn't be referred to as a country at all. We are too diverse to be one. That is why when one section gets the presidency, the other sections try to undermine it. In so doing, the economy of the country is hurt.
So Biko I don't blame them. Nigeria as large as it is is useless to mankind

Nigerians are notorious for abusing inventions.

Most of us are arrogant, disrespectful, rude and foolish on social media, especially Facebook. It's either we are bullying other African nations ' citizens or we are at war with ourselves. We are literally misbehaving on social media. I believe this attitude arises from the fact that we don't respect and value other Nigerians.

If we don't value other Nigerians, how then can we respect the citizens of other nations? How?

We are supposed to set the pace for other African nations to follow but what do we have to show for all our huge population and vast resources? Decrepit infrastructure, high moratlity rate, poor living conditions, etc; but we won't hesitate to bully citizens who are obviously enjoying a better and higher quality of life than we do.

When last did you meet a Kenyan in Nigeria? I've not even met one myself. Now compare that with the number of Nigerians in Kenya. The same goes for Ghana and many other African nations.

We are always at war- needless wars. We had better put our house in order before we go ahead showing our foul mouths to the world.

4000 MW for 170 million noise makers.

Op you dont expect people to act mature when they really aren't. But then sometimes you have to cut some of these kids (and adults) some slack, these banters sometimes can just be a way to distract and ease blood pressure from the bad news we hear everyday in this country.

This is not about the Presidency or leadership, it is about individuals, it is about our values and our goal. Is there a reward in disrespecting others that are clearly doing better than us? We have a serios problem

Nigerians in Kenya prefer to stay there and enjoy relative peace which they can't get here. Nigerians are supposed to be educated(considering the population of our people with High School Certificates), but our attitude always shows that of people without enlightenment. We lack respect and we don't seem to consider our image whenever we do things.

Nigerians are hungry, crime rate is very high, poverty is spreading, IDPs are being malnourished, yet citizens feel satisfied by disrespecting others that are faring better.

Over 40 million Nigerians still don't have access to decent sanitary facilities. We are just noise makers, and other African nations are beginning to see us for who we truly are.

We don't love and respect one another. How can we love outsiders?

Is there any virtual war between Northern Nigerians and Other Africans - No

Who in Nigeria engage in this frivolity? - Western and Eastern Nigerians.

Then, if my postulations are correct then compare these two regions with Kenya or Ghana and see that they are not our match in any ramification.

Some of you talk like you are special breed of people. If only you know that the social media is supposed to be used as a tool to promote national advancement, project a country's good image, and earn respect among your peers. It is gross abuse to turn it into arena of internal and external brawl. If every adult spend their time on Brawl I am sure nobody will come up with internet not to talk of social media.

It is even a shame that the people we bad mouth are faring better than us. Seriously, we are supposed to be slugging it out with South Sudan- But you will hardly see them constituting nuisance on SM like we do.

All these self-praise like King Kong. How can you compare Kenya with East-West Nigeria when we can't even boast of power? Even Northern Nigeria is productive(Agriculture) than most states in the South. If Oil wasn't in the South then I wonder what would have become of the region.

We should stop embarrassing ourselves.

Now on a more serious note the Truth is Kenyans raised some vital issues that we couldn't defend hence we resulted to insults making the whole thing look like social media war grin and surprisingly Kenyans seems to know much about our country and were even using some of our own memes to mock us cry who will dispute this claim now? . undecided

It is ignorance powered by folly that causes them to talk down on other Africans.

It is only the unfortunately successful marriage between ignorance and folly that
supplies the confidence to Nigerian youth to brimmingly spew ignorance outside while they doggedly cling on to every ideological position that keeps them inferior in today's modern world.

Reminds me of what Piers Morgan said of Amorosa on the 1st episode of the celebrity apprentice: "Her ego writes cheques her personality cannot cash".
